Bluetooth and Internal Speakers



On my oled55bxpua, how do I use Bluetooth connected to my hearing aids and internal speakers at the same time?
Currently if I use Bluetooth, the internal speakers are turned off. This happens even if I choose Bluetooth + Internal speakers.
In this case I am the only one who can hear the TV.

You might want to review this site below, and if their adaptor is available in your country (if needed), and/or a usable alternative to connecting up if it looks like a viable solution. I have seen it on AMAZON for various countries I think.

I have Bluetooth hearing aids and my LG TV is Bluetooh equiped.

My problem is that when I pair my hearing aids, they work fine, but the internal speaker get turned off. I can either use the TV's speakers or my Bluetooth aids. NOT BOTH.

The TV that we replaced allowed me to use both.

@neisman I missed the part where you said the on your oled55bxpua TV, you already selected Bluetooth + Internal speakers, but that fails to work.

That sounds like a bug. Have you ensured that your TV has the latest firmware, just released on 17th March, as 03.21.80 ?  If not done via OTA, you can download it on a PC and put it on a USB stick.

LG often fix other minor things, but only document the major issues fixed, so you might get lucky.  See here to get the update and instructions:

OK, I got an answer from LG.
Basically they said TS, we designed it that way and there is no work around.

This is ridiculous, because the menu item says specifically "Bluetooth + Internal speakers", therefore it is a bug.

On my OLED48CX3LB it works exactly as you expected.
I'd rather have [Bluetooth + HDMI ARC] or [Wired headphones + HDMI ARC] or [Optical + HDMI ARC] so I could listen through the headphones and the digital amp at the same time, but LG in its infinite wisdom thinks otherwise.
How on earth did they think anyone would prefer internal speakers over a proper 5.1 HiFi surround sound system?

      I have an LG 43UR80006LJ TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth iphone earpods headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time? Thx

      55UJ651V After a few minutes, the Bluetooth clicks and disconnects. Sometimes it then re-starts the tv into the on mode, with nothing selected. It will not find the bluetooth device again. Unless, I try a different Blutooth device and then it does the same thing all over again. Is there any answer to this - or does the module need replacing. There seems to be a lot of discussion online regarding Bluetooth issues with LG. I have hearing issues and must use headphones! This is impossible!

      I have been trying to get my Google Home and Nest Audio Speakers to turn my LG OLED65C24LA TV on and off.   I have linked ThinQ to Google Home but it still wouldn't work.  So plan B was to get a Chromecast to do this one simple voice activated request....I have no intentions of using Chromecast for anything else!
      So this actually does work, however, when asking it to turn the TV on, it defaults to the home page of Chromecast TV, I want it to just open to my normal TV system, which is Sky Q.  Ideally, I would like to disconnect the Chromecast and just get Google Home and ThinQ to do this !!
      I have checked every setting and trawled the internet for a solution.  I've posted on the AV Forum in the UK and the Google Forum and I'm waiting on a call back from LG Support UK.
      I expected this to be a VERY simple task !!
      Can anyone help with this ?

      How to set up bluetooth only audio output. Thé only option offert is bluetooth+ loudspeaker

      I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
      How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?
