Question about Sony CMT-BX5BT Shelf System

1 Answer

CMT-BX5BT SONY spkrs aren't pulling in music (via BT) from laptop

I can link my SONY speakers to my HP Pavilion laptop (tx2510us - Vista 64, and shortly after linking, HP tells me the speakers are connected, but then SONY isn't pulling in the music from my laptop. I know they're linked because pressing pause on the SONY system pauses the music on the laptop, but the speakers are playing the audio.

After linking I get confirmation from Windows that the device drivers are ready to use (Bluetooth AV and Bluetooth Remote Control).

I think I've done everything I've supposed to do, yet no success. What's missing? Thanks.

Bluetooth won't connect

blue toith where inside PC, or added to PC using BT to USB gongle, device.??? (yup 2 ways and can be the fix , see?)

bluetooth is trick tech. (it even learns devices , by self)
so what pc (one of 10,000 laptops)
what OS. (operating systems matter big time)
what device, (piles)

so is this XP OS? the dead OS? and virus magnet?
btw1: Vista ended this year.
what PC, it has HP model , like DV5-12345us.
on the service tag of every HP made.

we cant have any ideas ever lacking key facts like that.
impossible. but. but but.... in the generic.

but can say , the bluetooth driver is missing or wrong
no internet connection, gee now can BT work>lacking that
if XP or VISTA gee, MS shut down PnP for those.

support happens like this.
if the PC BT module is ok and the OS driver workes (DM)
the BT chip in pc connects to the device, (chip to chip ) easy
of the OS driver works the PC OS can now comm to the chip
next... (its chain of events serial)
then The OS does PnP plug and play to find a match for your random BT device (oops XP is dead)
try to know each DEVICE is not the same.
a BT , headphone, speaker., mouse/.or keyboards are not the same.
nor vast other things, different (endless list)
even MS tells you w7 UP, most headphones are not supported by MS. at all (pnP) need a link to MS on that, have it.

that means you need to get the driver from the maker.
with W7 OS.
it can find many drivers easy with PNP working

got internet? on this box LT.

Can't pair with bluetooth device. What is pairing pin # ?

The pin # is 0000. Make sure you input this on your pin box on your pc or iPad as well as the stereo unit itself. Use the tuner to input pin# on the stereo which is the same pin. Insert 0, then use right arrow key to move cursor to the next digit place and do it until you input four zeros and then hit enter.

32bit vista to 64bit win7

your recovery manager files should be on drive D or other partition. if not then its gone. but the operating system cd that goes with your laptop is still better than the factory default anyway but the thing is, youll need the cd everytime you want to reformat.

if i where you, il go for 32bit win 7 since your computer used to be a 32 bit vista. no worries about making the most out of your computer since win 7 eats less than vista anyway. and go for 32 bit since your laptop is made for 32 bit.
