Bluetooth headset won't connect in Vista

Hello, I just got this Phillips bluetooth headset SHB6100. Vista was able to discover it, pairs up with it (without passkey, otherwise got error), but when I went to the Audio tab in bluetooth settings and tried to connect to it, it says connecting for a while then got back to disconnected, no matter how many times I tried.
I went to control panel-sound and found my headset listed there and "working", when I set it as default and play music, the little bar beside would go up and down which I think meaning there is input, but of course, nothing heard from the headset.
My laptop is HP8530p with built-in bluetooth functionality. Any help would be appreciated.

I had a similar problem. First part of the solution is to disable the headset profile for the headphones. These headphones can't handle both headset and headphone profiles at the same time. Second part of the solution is to make sure that your headphones are on when you activate bluetooth on the computer. For some reason, Vista doesn't like setting up the initial connection on-the-go, so it will just act like its connected and move on. Hope this helps!

Did you rnyrt 0000 on the initialization screen where it asks you for passkey? If you didn't uninstall and reinstall following the insignia install procedures. Also download new drivers from their website.

Should not be a problem. If you download the quick start guide from this site and follow the pairing instructions for your Bluetooth phone that should work well.

How can I get my player to connest to my bluetooth headphones have tried several times no luck


If you have a Kindle Fire or later this is possible. Any Kindle before this model has the hardware for BT, but not any method to access the BT (bad on Amazon\'s part, but that\'s the way it is).

Kindle Fire do this: Go to settings --> Wireless --> Bluetooth Turn on Bluetooth if it is not on.

Now on your headset put it in pairing mode. Instructions on how to do this should have come with your headset. Once in pairing mode press Pair a Bluetooth Device on your Kindle. Your Kindle should "see" your headset and list the name of it under PAIRED DEVICES.

You only need to pair the device once. Then you should be able to press the device name and if the device is near by and on it should connect to the Kindle.

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?


Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:



To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.
