Question about Acer TravelMate 4200 Notebook

Won't connect to bluetooth printer

I recently purchased a printer with bluetooth capability. When I attempt to add the printer using the wizard, it does not give me the option to set up a bluetooth printer. Further, my control panel does not have a bluetooth connectivity icon. I found the switch on the front of the notebook for bluetooth, but when I slide it to the left it pops back to the middle and says "no bluetooth connections". Any help would be appreciated.

Sir,

This laptop does not ship with a bluetooth device. The button is available on the casing because Acer do not have separate casings for laptops without Bluetooth. Also, an opton for adding a bluettooth chip is available with Acer at a cost though.

Bluetooth connection issues


There are several things to try:

Remove and then reinstall the device:


Click the Start Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.

Select the device that's not working, and then click Remove.


Click Add, press the reset button on the device

(or make it discoverable following the manufacturer's instructions), select the My device is set up and ready to be found check box, and then click Next.


If the device is not found, repeat the previous step.

When the device is found, select it, and then click Next.


Follow the rest of the instructions in the wizard.

Make sure the device is turned on and that the batteries don't need to be replaced.


Make sure the Bluetooth adapter for your computer is attached and turned on, and that the device is turned on and discoverable.


If you're not sure how to turn on discoverability, read the instructions that came with the device or check the manufacturer's website.


Make sure that you installed the device using the correct program. If not, reinstall the device.

For a printer, follow these steps:


Open the Add Printer wizard by clicking the Start Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, clicking Printers, and then clicking Add a printer.


For a mobile phone, if you have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your computer, use the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard. To do so, follow these steps:

Click the Start Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.

Click Add.


For a keyboard or mouse, if you have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your computer, use the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard. To do so, follow these steps:

Connect a wired keyboard or mouse to your computer.


Click the Start Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.

Click Add.

The device might be out of range of your computer, or too close.

Try moving it closer or a little farther from your computer.


hope this helps

How to install a bluetooth device to my pc asus PC R101


Hello there,
Unfortunately, your netbook does not have bluetooth capabilities. You can purchase a cheap bluetooth adapter from websites like meritline.com. If you already have a bluetooth dongle, you can follow these instructions from Microsoft.
Make sure that youre device is Discoverable. Then on your Windows XP computer:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type bthprops.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. In Bluetooth Settings, click Add.
  3. In the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard, click to select the My device is set up and ready to be found check box, and then click Next.

    Note You cannot click Next until you click to select the My device is set up and ready to be found box. A device that has discovery turned off cannot be detected during a search.

    When you click Next, your computer searches for any discoverable devices that are in range. When the search is complete, the devices appear in the wizard.
  4. Select a device to add, and then click Next.
I hope this has helped! Thumbs up are much appreciated!

Hi, I have an Logitech cordless optical mouse M/N: M-RCQ142, P/N:810-000452. I am trying for the 1st time to connect it to my new laptop running windows 7 and when I push the connect button on the bottom...


That is a Bluetooth Mouse. Your computer MUST have a bluetooth adapter or capability (Usually a laptop). You will use the Bluetooth control panel (not the add hardware wizard) to search for this device.

How do you connect printer to laptop with bluetooth


Hi friend,
follow the given below instructions-
1-Make sure your printer is Bluetooth enabled. Some printers come this way (read the manual to verify) but others require adapters. Shop online or visit an electronics store to find an inexpensive Bluetooth printer adapter.
2-Set up your adapter. All you need do is connect one end to your laptop and the other end to your printer and it will install itself.
3-Turn on the printer. Make sure it is connected to a working electrical outlet and the printer power is on correctly.
4-Open Bluetooth devices on your laptop. After installing your Bluetooth adapter, go to the control panel and open "Bluetooth Devices."
5-Add printer automatically. This is less secure, but easier. From the options tab, make sure the options "Turn discover on" and "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this laptop" are checked. Your printer and laptop should then find each other automatically and begin working. If you'd rather not let other devices discover your laptop, follow steps 6 and 7 instead.
6-Add device manually. From the devices tab, select "Add Device" and run the installation wizard to find your printe
7-Use the "Add Printers" wizard. You can also add the printer by clicking "Start" and "Printers and Faxes" and then "Add a Printer." When the wizard pops up, select "Bluetooth printer" and Windows will search for your printer automatically.
