Set your Device to Pairing Mode

Pairing Mode lets your Bluetooth device find a new device to connect to. Most Bluetooth devices make it simple to enter Pairing mode, but it does vary from device to device.

If these methods don't work, refer to the user manual for your Bluetooth device for how to enter "Pairing Mode".
Many Bluetooth devices, if not paired to anything or if they can't find the device they were originally paired to, will simply enter Pairing Mode when you turn them on.
