can't connect anything through bluetooth (solved)

Post by freshtamatic »

Trying to connect and external speaker and an external headphone, but bluetooth doesn't see them although Windows does.
All i'm getting is some Samsung TV that I don't own, must be a neighbours and my Mi Band watch.
What can I try as a solution?
I'm on LM Cinnamon.
