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.

How do I connect phone to plantronics


hi June,
I assume you are using a Plantronics wireless headphone? ensure your phone is on and Bluetooth is switched on in your phone settings.
hold the button on the headphone until the light starts flashing, if this does not happen ensure the headphone is charged. in Bluetooth options on your phone ensure your phone is set to "can be seen by other devices" and then use "scan devices" to find your headphone, if you see Plantronics in the list select it and press "pairing" this will then connect the headset to the phone. once paired, everytime your headset is on and Bluetooth is on, you need to just press the button on the headset and it will automatically connect to your phone.(as long as the headset name is not deleted from the Bluetooth list)

If your phone does not show in the headset in the Bluetooth list, keep the phone scanning and press the button on the headset to start the light flashing this is now causing the headset to search for the phone. once the headset shows in the phone list do as above.

I hope this was useful.

My headset will not get out of pairing mode. The blue light stays on. The only other color I see is red when I shut it off.


Make your phone (I'm assuming) forget the S-9 and search for Bluetooth devices again. It will find it again, but it won't be paired. Press whatever button on your phone that makes it connect and it should work. I've been searching for answers and racking my brain. Finally, I just tried this and it worked! What a relief...

Hi,

For connecting to other devices, press & hold the power button of your bluetooth headset for initiating the discoverable mode. When the led light starts flashing in red color, search for the headset from the phone in which you wanna connect. Open the Bluetooth settings, turn it on and search for new devices and pick from the list and pair the headset. After this, the headset will be auto-connected.

PAIR KEY FOR MOTOROLA s9


Bluetooth headsets have their passkey hardcoded by their manufacturers. So, I'm afraid it is not suitable to be changed. However, once any two bluetooth devices are paired, their link is encrypted. You see, you put your headset in pairing mode only when you want to pair it to a specific device of yours (i.e. phone, PC, etc.). Once they are paired to each other, third devices won't be able to get into that connection.
Just my 2 cents...

Get laptop to see ATT V521 bluetooth headset


I think you need to "unpair" the headset from the phone. Try turning off the bluetooth head set, and then deleting the headset from the list bluetooth devices on your cellphone. Then turn the head set back on, and once it discovers that it cannot connect to the cellphone, it will become "discoverable" again.
