Question about HP Computers & Internet

Bluetooth won't connect

It will find devices, but not once has it ever successfully connected to one. Doesnt matter if its a mobile device, speakers, or something larger, it fails every time with "that didn't work, try again and make sure your speakers are still discoverable". When using a different kind of device that should be able to find my laptop, instead of my laptop finding it, it never shows up in a list. Any ideas?

It sounds to me like you have used and UNDERSTAND
Bluetooth... So yes it is time to move on:

- Either with tech support from HP...
or
- Actually identify YOUR software/hardware
(nomenclature & revision levels that would enable
our FIXERS to properly assist you).

Don't be afraid... We are totally FREE...
(no extra charge for giving meaningful information)

Right now all I know is you have an HP...
(you let "laptop" slip: so I'll show "Pavilion" parts)
((HP sells them... as does AMAZON))

Looks like:

Give us a real try...!!

The REASON they sell these things... IS BECAUSE
they break...

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.

    BT has short range, on most.
    very short.
    its not wifi like.
    the chips do auto connect but is ONLY
    a connection, (the BT chips have no idea at all what is connected)
    this is key fact to know.

SOURCE: ibm t43 laptop's bluetooth cannot find devices

This sounds like it is exactly what I scratched my head about when I first inhereted my T43 at work. If it is, you are going to laugh at how simple it issue is. IBM in their great wisdom made a custom control for the wireless network antenna and bluetooth antenna. Try:

Hit Fn+F5. This will bring up a window where you can control turning on/off each antenna. When you turn on the bluetooth, the symbol in the system tray should turn to blue and white and the little green bluetooth light just below the screen should come on. I hope this helps.

I have a portable wireless speaker model AWSBT7 will not go into the connect mode when pressing the button to sync up device I do not get the two beeps or the light does not flash faster


Hi Jerry, Are you using this method to pair your device?

Pairing
The Bluetooth-enabled device that you wish to stream audio to your speaker system must
fi rst be paired to the speaker. The process is simple, and in most cases the pairing process
needs to be done only once.
To pair your Bluetooth-enabled device with the speaker:
1. Make sure your device's Bluetooth is turned on. See the wireless and/or network settings
menu on your device to check.
2. If the speaker isn't already on, press the On-Off button to turn it on. You will hear a beep
to indicate the speaker is turned on. The indicator light on the back of the speaker starts
fl ashing blue.
3. Press and hold for 3 seconds the Pair button to enter pairing mode. You will hear 2 beeps
to indicate pairing mode is entered. The indicator on the back of the speaker starts blinking
faster.
4. Open the Bluetooth settings menu on your device. Select "AR SPEAKER" from the list of
devices available (you might have to scan for devices). If your device asks for a password,
enter "0000".
5. A confirmation screen will appear on your device once the speaker and the device are
successfully paired. The blue indicator turns solid blue to indicate successful connection.
The speaker is now ready for you to stream audio from your device.

Blue tooth speaker wont turn back on.


Unable to connect to a device?

Before attempting any of the following steps, make sure that you are running the latest software version on your SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker. Click here to visit the software update center and update your speaker. If you are still having difficulty connecting to a device after updating the software, continue to the troubleshooting steps.

Unable to connect with a previously paired device?

Please try the following to resolve this issue:
Perform a product resetTo perform a SoundLink speaker reset, following these steps:
  1. On the speaker, press and hold Mute for 10 seconds, the LEDs will flash briefly
  2. Press Power to turn the SoundLink speaker back on
Clear the pairing list on both the SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker and the source
  1. On the SoundLink speaker, press and hold the Bluetooth button for approximately 10 seconds until you hear a tone. The SoundLink speaker clears all Bluetooth devices from its memory and becomes discoverable
  2. Clear the list on your Bluetooth device. For more information, please refer to the manufacturer of the device
  3. Perform a product reset. On the speaker, press and hold Mute for 10 seconds, the LEDs will flash briefly. Press Power to turn the SoundLink speaker back on
  4. Try pairing the device again by following these steps:
    1. With the Bluetooth device and the SoundLink speaker both turned on, press and hold the Bluetooth button on the speaker for three seconds to make the speaker discoverable. The Bluetooth indicator will slowly fade on and off approximately once every second to show the speaker is in discoverable mode
    2. Set your Bluetooth device to "Discoverable." This will allow your device to discover the SoundLink speaker
    3. On your device, locate the Bluetooth device list. Select "Bose SoundLink" from the list
    4. If your device asks for a passkey, enter digits 0000 and press OK. Some devices also ask you to accept the connection. Your Bluetooth device indicates when pairing is complete. The SoundLink speaker indicates pairing is complete when the Bluetooth indicator stops fading on and off and remains on
Be sure the SoundLink speaker is within 30 feet of the Bluetooth deviceThe system is designed to operate at a range of 30 feet. However, performance can be diminished by obstacles such as walls or metal, and may also be affected by other Bluetooth devices. Try moving the SoundLink speaker closer to the Bluetooth device.
Be sure the source's Bluetooth function is OnMany Bluetooth enabled devices have an option where the Bluetooth feature can be turned On or Off. This option may be set to Off to save the battery life of the device. Be sure this option is set to On. If the Bose product is paired to the Bluetooth enabled device, it should automatically reconnect when its Bluetooth function is turned on. If the Bose product doesn't automatically reconnect, manually select the Bose product within the Bluetooth list on the device.
Manually connect the SoundLink speaker in the device listSome devices will pair to a device but not automatically connect. Go to the pairing list of the device and check if this is the case. If it is, try connecting to the SoundLink speaker.

I have a JBL wireless flip speaker and even after reading the so-called manual, I have absolutely NO idea how to use it . My iPad has blue tooth capability but,I,don,t even know what,exactly is Bluetooth...


Once you put the JBL speaker on, turn on bluetooth on your ipad, search for bluetooth device, it takes a few minutes sometime to locate your speaker, once you see your speaker listed in the bluetooth device, click on the device. IT will connect but at times it might ask for a PIN.

I need to know the bluetooth pairing code for sanyo M1


Well I know for sure the default pin for the M1 is indeed 0000. However I cannot tell you what the pin would be for your specific bluetooth dongle. If I where you I would try 0000, 1111, 2222 and so on
  • As with all Bluetooth headsets, the H700 needs to be paired with the device before it can be used, which is done in pairing mode. In pairing mode, the H700 makes a transmission so that Bluetooth-enabled devices can pick up the device and connect to the headset. Once connected, no other device can connect with the Bluetooth headset. To enter pairing mode on the H700, open the headset boom located near the microphone. After a few seconds the indicator light will turn purple. Once purple, the H700 is in pairing mode.
Searching for the Device With the M1
  • Once the H700 is in pairing mode, have the M1 search for Bluetooth devices. To do this, press "MENU/OK" and choose "Tools," "Bluetooth," "Add New" and "Search." A list of Bluetooth devices will show up on the screen. Highlight "Motorola H700" and press "MENU/OK." Choose "Add to Trusted," enter "0000" and press "MENU/OK." The devices are now connected and ready to be tested.
Testing the Devices
  • Once the devices are connected, test that both the phone and the headset are working properly together. First, place the headset in your ear. Dial a number on the phone and press "Send." If you can hear ringing, the devices are connected properly and ready for use.
    If the connection was not successful, repeat the previous steps and try again. Make sure the indicator light is glowing purple and is steady. If you have connected the headset to a previous device, make sure that device is turned off so as not to interfere with the connection procedure. Once the other device is off, close and reopen the boom to enter pairing mode.

I dont have the code to my bh-602


According to the manual it is 0000
I added an excerpt of the manual here :
Pair the headset
1. Ensure that your mobile device is switched on.
2. To pair the headset if it has not been previously paired with a device, switch on the headset. The headset enters the pairing mode, and the indicator light flashes blue quickly.
To pair the headset if it has been previously paired with another device, ensure that the headset is switched off, and press and hold the power key until the indicator light starts to flash blue quickly.
3. Activate the Bluetooth feature on the mobile device, and set it to search for Bluetooth devices. See the user guide of your device for instructions.
4. Select the headset from the list of found devices.
5. Enter the passcode 0000 to pair and connect the headset to your device. In some mobile devices, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing. See the user guide of your device for details. You only need to pair the headset with your device once. If pairing is successful, the headset appears in the menu of the mobile device where you can view the currently paired Bluetooth devices.

Automatically detecting MY 6600 Mobile in other Devices while it is switched OFF. Iam switchedoff the bluetooth in 6600 mobile but it is detecting in Other devices or Mobiles Pls....... Help me to slove...


Hi,
The offline device list will be displayed in other device for quick connecting later. but the connection will become successful only if your bluetooth is switched on. your device will go off when the other mobile user refreshes his bluetooth list or can be removed only manually deleting it ( if paired). Even if your device is listed in other mobile, it cannot connect to your mobile without your authorization to its request.
I hope this is helpful to you
