How to Put Panasonic Bluetooth Headset Into Pairing Mode

By William Pullman

Panasonic designed Bluetooth headphones to connect to earlier models of the Apple iPod, which did not have Bluetooth compatibility. The headphones come in two parts, a transmitter and a receiver, and allowed users to listen to their iPod with wireless headphones. The receiver also came with a microphone, so you could use the headphones with cell phones, a convenient option for users who make business calls and like to multitask. Entering pairing mode is different when using the headphones with an iPod versus using them with a cell phone.

iPod Pairing

Plug the transmitter into the connector on the bottom of the iPod.

Press and hold the button on the microphone, which is the cylinder attached to the receiver, for two seconds. The receiver's indicator light blinks red, indicating it is in pairing mode.

Hold the button on the transmitter for two seconds to place it in pairing mode. The indicator light on the transmitter blinks red until it is paired with the receiver, and then it turns blue. The receiver's indicator light also changes from red to blue when pairing is complete.

Cell Phone Pairing

Press and hold the microphone button for two seconds. The indicator light blinks red.

Hold the "-" button on the receiver for six seconds. The indicator light blinks faster, indicating it is in pairing mode.

Scan for available Bluetooth devices using your cell phone, and select "RP-BT10R Panasonic" from the list. When prompted for the pass key, enter "0000" using the cell phone's keypad.
