Question about Insignia Bluetooth Wireless Behind-the-Head Headphones - Black
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.
