I have a set of Insignia bluetooth headphones, and cannot get the media player to play through them. I have the phone paired with them, and can even use the phones just like a headset to make calls. The voice recorder also plays through them. As soon as I open the media player, it plays through its own external speaker. Is there a way to fix this? Is this a result of most of the bluetooth being locked for copyright reasons? I have exactly the same problem.
The phone is new so I'll take it back and find out then post the fix.
After trying this myself with a pair of samsung headphones, I searched online and found a review that said the LG Scoop/Rumor doesn't support stereo bluetooth, so the music player probably won't connect to the headphones.

The Rumour doesn't allow most file types to be sent to or from it; Simultaneously, the media player appears to not understand the concept of streaming via bluetooth. Very disappointing. You can still use the memory card to get music on and off the phone, however.
the directions from Samsung to pair the headset was way off. You need to hold down the main button then turn on the headset. Only then will the headset go into pairing mode by maintaining a solid blue light. It took me a couple of days of troubleshooting and experimenting to realize this pairing method. I just hope that this problem is only due to my headset because I assume a lot of people who buy this headset and try out Samsung's directions will become very frustrated. I almost returned the product and I am sure many others would too.
Perhaps either its pairing log is full, thay hold a number of pairing internally, and may need to be cleared to make room for another....or the headset may need to be reset, either way...heres the scoop....to clear the pairings hold the track forward/track backward buttons down together until the light flashes Purple....Empty pairing log......
If not then try pluging in the set to the charger and holing the 2 volume buttons down the same way..this will shut it off and reset it if it went a bit screwy on ya.... Merry Christmas
I'd recommend downloading the User's Manual. The instructions on how to connect the MP3 player to Bluetooth compatible headphones are located on pages 27-29 of the manual.
NOTE that the wireless headphones MUST be A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) compatible to use this feature. If your headphones are also AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) compatible then you will also be able to adjust some settings of the MP3 player (such as play/pause, skip forward/backward and control the volume) wirelessly. Check the documentation on your headphones to ensure compatability.
If you access the settings menu on the player, you'll see the bluetooth settings. You'll need to turn on the bluetooth radio. Then on your bluetooth device you'll need to activate the "pairing" sequence. With both devices set to "pairing", look back on the player and check to see if it found the receiver in the bluetooth settings. You'll probably be asked to input a passkey. If the device doesn't require a passkey, then just accept and start playing music.
If you need more specific instructions, let me know and also include what device you are trying to pair with. I'll walk you through it.
Hi fazioli73, With Bluetooth enabled cell phones, if it has a music player, the only device the music player will recognize to output audio is a set of Bluetooth Headphones, not a Bluetooth Headset. Once you have the Bluetooth Headphones, set them into pairing mode.Then go into your Bluetooth options in your phone, and go into add/search for device. Once your phone recognizes your Bluetooth headphones, and you have it set as your main Bluetooth device, your music player should play through the headphones at that point.
