Question about Motorola Mobility DC800 Wireless Adapter

No music out of stereo when using Mororola DC800 and Sony Vaio FW

I have a Sony Vaio FW 160D running on Vista. I hooked up the Motorola DC800 to 2 different stereos and it didn't work. The Sony Vaio shows the DC800. The DC800 is paired with the Sony and shows it should be receiving music (slow pulsing blue "M") but I hear nothing. I was on the phone with Sony for over 2 hrs (it was escalated 2 times) and on the phone with Motorola for over 30 minutes. I tried Netstumbler but I guess my adapter is not compliant with it since it always says "No adapter found". Can anybody help?

It's a lot simpler than you think..

1. make sure the cables to your stereo are in the LINE OUT of the dc800, and on the LINE IN or AUX IN of your stereo (trust me, double check them)

2. make sure your DC800 is PAIRED with your computer. this is different with each different "STACK" read the help files on your particular bluetooth stack to help you with this is you need more help. Remember, you have to hold the big "M" button in the front of the DC800 to pair it.

3. when you want to send audio to the DC800, make sure you CONNECT the DC800 using your particular stack. Once the DC800 is paired with your computer, you can often set up a link or icon on your desktop to connect or disconnect the device from your computer.

This should take care of it. If you are still having problems, make sure to check your audio properties to see if the audio is sending to the Bluetooth device. This is USUALLY changed automatically, but sometimes you have to tweak your settings to make sure it's sending to the Bluetooth.

What is it for and how does it work


HI ....
Motorola Bluetooth Stereo Gateway DC800 is used as
Motorola Bluetooth Home Stereo Transceiver
By streaming music to your the Bluetooth Stereo Headphones, the Bluetooth Home Stereo Adapter turns audio devices such as home
stereos and MP3 players into wireless music systems. Just plug the
DC800 into your home stereo or MP3 player with an included RCA
cable or 3.5mm cable and you are ready to go. You can even hook
up to your RCA capable TV!

Thanks .....
With regards
Priya

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you

Power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I


On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

Audio problems.


If this is an RF transmitter working within the WiFi range that might be your problem. First find out what channel you adapter is broadcasting on. Do this by logging into it. Then on your PC get a program called Netstumbler, and load it on your pc then turn on the program it will go out and find all of the access points around your area. It will also list the channels they are on. There are 14 channels but only three can be used channel 1 channel 6 and channel 11 find the channel that is least used and set you adapter to it. This should work. Let me know if this helps. Thank you, Shuttle83
