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.

My blackberry bold 990 cannot discover my samsung wep200 bluetooth headset, both are on and working but whether I try and "discover" or "listen" for the bluetooth, the blackberry never finds it. Help.


Is this Blackberry a corporate Blackberry, there may be some corporate policy blocking bluetooth connection. Check with your company IT support.

Are you able to discover and connect to other Bluetooth devices?

To put the WEP200 into pairing mode, the user must ensure the headset is off then press and hold the multi-function button for eight seconds, or until the LED glows a steady blue. Samsung uses the standard "0000" as the pairing code for the device.

Hope this helps

Having issues syncing my Uniden BT112 Bluetooth to my BlackBerry Bold. I used this Bluetooth with another telephone and don't have any of the old packaging. I don't have a pin number. Help!


Please follow the correct instructions below to successfully pair your headset with the phone.Make sure that the headset is sufficiently charged before pairing.

Charge the battery
Before using your headset, charge the battery for at least 8 hours. Charging the battery completely (and keeping it charged) will help you get the longest possible talk and standby time out of the battery.

Pair the headset to your Bluetooth phone
Pairing is like "introducing" two Bluetooth devices and giving them permission to connect to each other. If you want to use the headset with more than one phone, you need to pair it with each phone separately. Once a phone and the headset are paired, they can connect automatically whenever they detect each other.
1. Make sure the headset is powered off and the power adapter is not connected (you can't use the headset while it's charging).
2. Press and hold Power until the LED flashes alternating red and blue. The headset is in pairing mode and should be visible to other Bluetooth devices.
3. On your phone, start a search for Bluetooth headsets or handsfree devices. (This process may take several seconds, and it will be different for each phone; see your phone's manual for detailed instructions.)
4. Your phone should discover a device called a BT108, BT108 headset, BT109, or BT109 headset, When your phone asks if you want to pair with this device, answer yes.
5. When your phone prompts you for a PIN code or password to pair with the BT108 or BT109 enter 0000.
6. When the headset is paired, the LED turns blue and flashes every 3 seconds. Your phone might display a confirmation message, also.
7. Your phone might ask if you want to change the headset's name; generally, you should only change the name if you have more than one BT108 or BT109 headset that you use with this phone.
Connecting to your phone
Most phones connect to the headset as soon as you pair it; if yours won't, turn the headset off and back on. If headset still won't connect, check your phone's owner's manual for additional Bluetooth information.
Once the headset is paired:
Whenever you turn the headset on, it will automatically try to connect to whatever device it was connected to last.
If the headset loses the connection (e.g., if your phone is out of range), it reconnects automatically. To manually reconnect, press Power.
If the headset goes more than 1 hour with no connection, it automatically turns off.

If you need further assistance please leave me a reply.Hope you are satisfied with my solution.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

My plantronics Bluetooth will not go into pairing mode no matter what I do. I held down the call button and it does work. Are there any other alternatives?


Hello,
When you hold down the call button do you get a red then blue flashing light? This is pairing mode. (also the only way to get this headset into pairing mode) Make sure the phone is close to the Bluetooth headset. For most phones pairing a headset is done by
  1. Settings/Tools > connections > Bluetooth > On (your phone manual will have all the specifics but this is usually the buttons)
  2. Turn your headset on (on/on switch) and wait till the indicator flashes red then blue.
  3. Set your phone to "discover" or "add a device" which steps are usually - setup > connect > Bluetooth.
  4. Once available headsets are available select your headset. If it asks for a code the generic code is 0000
  5. A successful pair is indicated by a blue light and also a confirmation on your phone.

Regards, Tony
