1. On the Philips music system, press FM repeatedly until [BT] (Bluetooth) is displayed on the display panel. The Bluetooth indicator flashes blue.
2. On your phone, go to Settings and turn on Bluetooth. Press Scan. Your phone will start searching for nearby Bluetooth-enabled devices.
3. Select 'PHILIPS_BTM2180' on your phone and, if necessary,
enter '0000' (no quotes, all zeros) as the pairing password/key.
After successful pairing and connection with the phone, the Bluetooth indicator on the Philips system will turn solid blue and you will hear two beeps coming from it.
4. Start playing music on your phone and enjoy hearing it from the speakers on your music system !.
A Bluetooth transmitter (or radio) is hardware and is built into a Bluetooth-enabled product during the manufacture.of that device. A Bluetooth-enabled device can connect to another Bluetooth-enabled device to establish communication between them, but there is no Bluetooth network, the way there are wireless (WiFi) networks to which a WiFI-enabled device can connect. Bluetooth is short-distance (33 feet/10 meters between the Bluetooth devices) method of wireless communication.
Bluetooth is a smart replacement for connection cables. Thought for very low power information (music) exchange. It will connect devices over a range of maximal 10 yards. (about 10 meters) If you were using a bluetooth headphone to listen music on your iPod, as soon as you plug in a wired headphone, the bluetooth connection will be disconnected, because your device only can serve one master.
I hope I could shine any light on your blue tooth.
On RXV3900 using the remote there is a submenu for YBA-10WH (submenu shows Trim, Pair, Connect). Selecting Pair causes the YBA-10WH blue light to flash. Once iPod has Bluetooth set to ON it then displays a box showing "YBA-10WH not connected".
First attempt to connect requires tapping this box which produces the invitation to enter a 4 digit pass code. I had several attempts using pass code for my iPhone - all failed giving message "Make sure yba-10 yamaha is turned on in range and ready to pair". I finally tried keying in a pass code 0 0 0 0 and it paired!
Once turned off subsequent attempts to enable Bluetooth were much easier requiring tapping of the box but not requiring entry of any pass code.
Turn off seems to work easiest by using the remote to select the "Connect" option on the submenu and then selecting Enter on the remote - this caues display of "Disconnected" message on the RXV3900 screen.
I have had the same issue... initially I was told that I got a bad unit. After replacing the unit, same problem existed. I started working with Yamaha Tech Support US and they seemed to have very little knowledge of the issue, which amazed me after seeing all the discussion of this high pitch issue on the web. After continued back/forth troubleshooting, Yamaha USA acknowledged that they had gotten feedback from Japan validating that there was, in fact, a problem with these units. I sent mine back for a replacement for a NEW release? that reportedly corrects this problem. It has been 3 weeks since they received my unit... still nothing back. Bottom line, I will never buy another piece of Yamy equipment. Their tech support is horrendous, they seem to have limited knowledge and it takes forever to hear back. If you are having this problem, go back to Yamaha and demand that they send you the updated unit.
Here are the instructions from the manual for my Contour Design SURFACE SOUND COMPACT (with minor editorials)
To initiate pairing:
Place the bluetooth device and your mobile phone within 0.3 meter (1 foot) of each other - I prefer to place both on a table infront of me
Switch on your phone and select it Bluetooth discover mode (you'll have to figure this one out on your own!)
Immediately after turning the bluetooth device on (ie. lifting the microphone), press and hold both the TALK button and the VOL + button for about 5 seconds until the indicator light flashes red and blue alternately and a sound can be heard in the speaker - I had trouble getting it to co-operate once it started into the seeking handset mode of beeping, so try to press the two buttons before all that beeping starts
Once the mobile phone detects the carkit, a "contour SSC" message will be displayed. Follow the phone instructions to accept the pairing. The PIN coade (or passkey) is 0000, then press "yes" or "ok". I assume the PIN code is the same for all of them, as the manual appears mass printed.
If the pairing was successful, the indicator light will switch to blue and flash slowly. If you haven't started the discovery mode within 5 minutes, it will stop. In this case, you must start the pairing again as step 3 above.
