Resetting Bluetooth connection on soundbar:
Power off the sound bar
Unplug the soundbar's AC cord from the wall socket
For the device that you are having trouble pairing, delete the device name with "Shockwafe" from the list of paired device by selecting "Forget this device"
Wait 1 minute
Plug the soundbar's AC cord back into the wall socket
Power on the sound bar
Do the pairing process again.
