My guess is you don't have the headset in pairing mode. The instructions below are from the instructions for the BH-218"
Before using the headset, you must pair and connect it to a compatible phone.
1. Make sure your headset is switched off and your compatible phone is on.
2. If you've never paired the headset with a device, or you've cleared the pairings,
switch the headset on.
If you've previously paired your headset with another device, press and hold the multifunction button
for 5 seconds.
Pairing mode is switched on, and a blue indicator light starts to flash quickly.
3. Within 3 minutes, switch Bluetooth on in your phone, then set it to search for
Bluetooth devices. For details, see the user guide of the phone.
4. On your phone, select the headset from the list of found devices.
5. If asked, type in the passcode 0000.
When the headset is connected to a phone, the Bluetooth indicator light flashes
slowly.
You can pair your headset with 8 phones, but you can only connect it to 2 phones at
the same time.
With some phones, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing.
Tip: Can't connect the headset to a compatible phone? Make sure that the headset
is charged, switched on, and paired with the phone.

SOURCE: Why does my Nokia X6 and Sony Ericsson X8 both are

you can log on to the website and check for the compatible devices and see if your phones are among the supported devices.
also, it could be that your bluetooth headset is faulty and as a result cannot be detected, you can try searching for other bluetooth devices using your phone and if it does find them, then you can confirm that your headset is faulty or broken.
at this point, you can send it back to the store where you bought it from and get a replacement or you can send it for repairs.
hope this helped you? please rate

SOURCE: Hi, guys. I recently bought a Nokia BH-505

Hi Bogdy_3003,

I see that you are having issue with your BT Nokia headset.

You mentioned that you are having issues connecting it to our PC.

You need to make sure that the Bluetooth settings on the computer is set to allow other devices to detect the computer to be able to get your Bluetooth Nokia headset working with your computer.

Look for the Bluetooth icon on the lower right side of the taskbar somewhere near the time then right click on it then select open bluetooth settings, it should open up a window for the Bluetooth on your computer then look for "Allo other devices to detect this computer" and put a check on it, click on Apply or OK, this should make your computer be detected by other BT devices such as your Nokia headset.

I hope this will help.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

I haven't used my Garmin GPSMAP 292 for a couple


Have you tried pressing Page + Power at the same time while starting the 292?
Seems like there is a well Kinoen problem with the auto locate locking in wrong position and IF you reset the past position memory by pressing Page + Power while Power up should fix the problem.
You still need approx 20min location time but its better than 12-24h.

On a trip, and suddenly, Garmin won't come on. If it does, once in a while, it stays on the first screen that says Garmin. I paid over $500 for this item and have only had it for 2 years. Is there...


There is a way to reset most Garmin GPS devices, however a model number would have to be provided to determine the method.

You can try one of these methods:

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:
Power off Garmin unit. Press continuously on the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Or:

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Let me know if that works for you.

My garmin forerunner 305 turns off automaticly after a couple of minutes, and the battery is fully charge.


Try SW reset. Hold Mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds, then release and long press start until device restarts.
Should clean up default.

If not try hard reset, but you'll loose all data in device.
hold mode and start for ten second, device needs to off before.
Then keeping these, pulse press lap/reset.
You'll get a confirmation screen

Trying to pair nokia x6 with nokia BH-214 bluetooth headset i need the code to pair them


You have to hold the button down on the headset controller for approximately 6 seconds until the little LED on it flashes blue very quickly. The X6 will see it and match a pair automatically. If you just switch the headset on and the light flashes green the x6 will ask you for a passcode ... it doesn't matter what you put in (it seems) even '0000' ....it won't match the pair. HTH

I recommend either resetting the device or update the software. You can find software downloDepending on which model of Garmin GPS unit you’re using, thefollowing routine can reset the Garmin device to original factoryloaded settings, or bring up the Maintenance Mode with access to SystemInformation and View Diagnostics screen, where users can see variouslogs, and of course, clear all user data (reset to factory defaults) orclear Waypoints.

Trick above works on Garmin nuvi 200, 250, 360 750, 760 series unit.In fact, there is a video demo by user of Garmin Nuvi 360 on how toperform the hidden reset function.

Note: If entering maintenance mode, it’s also possible to perform master reset by selecting clear user data option.
Once the device has been hard reset, user have to perform the set upprocedure again upon start up. Note that erase user data command onlydelete data in the Garmin unit’s memory that isn’taccessible to the user when the unit is connected to computer. Thecommand does not erase .gpi or .gpx files loaded (if your .gpx filescontain any waypoints then they will automatically be imported intoFavorites), nor will delete any MP3 music, JPG photos or any otherfiles that have been stored on the GPS memory card.
Once the Garmin GPS unit is reseted, remember to place the deviceoutside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15– 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites.
Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit,it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protectmost Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN orpassword unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is tobring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” doesnot unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporaryfix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, thedevice is locked again.

Touch screen does not respond


Step 1. Turn your Nuvi unit off, remove any SD cards from the SD card slot and make sure that the unit is not plugged into any computer.
Step 2. Place a fingertip on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen and keep it there while turning the unit on, a prompt should read " Do you really want to start in maintenance mode?"
Step 3. Select the yes button.
Step 4. Enter your PIN if enabled.
Step 5. Main Maintenance Mode screen should have 4 selections:
System information
View Diagnostics
Clear User data
Clear Waypoints
Step 6. After some selections the unit should reboot and you check to verify unit after rebooting.
