Have you tried removing the old Q from the KCA-BT100? You can do this from the Phone - Setup menu and delete the old unit. While you are there delete any other ones you see as well.

Then, on your phone, search for Bluetooth devices, you should have the KCA-BT100 show up. Pair to it, the passkey to pair is 1234 and select it on your phone to be a handsfree service/device if there is an option to do so.

This should resolve your problem, any time that you change a function on the headunit it should check with the phone that it is still there.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...

This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.

Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.

Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.

You can review the manual like I did here:

I hope this answered your question.

I cannot get a picture from my sc-bt100 on my screen the sound is working no problem checked all leads and connections

How are you hooking it up? To what kind of TV? Best connection for SC-BT100 is via HDMI out on SC-BT100 to HDMI in on TV, otherwise you aren't getting full HD output. Make sure your TV is set to correct input source.....

Phone Compatibility website

I checked the site. There are no Blackberry models listed. The only manufacturers are: HP, LG, Motorola, Nokia, O2, Qtek, Samsung, Sanyo, SonyEricsson. There are no models listed as #8100 for any brand. This does not mean your BB is not compatible.

Bluetooth connection not working Kenwood KCA BT100 with KDC W7537U and a Nokia N95

Well... I'm sure mine worked ONCE! I have the BT100 and KDC-W7534U. It worked fine with my Nokia N80 but with my Nokia N95 It connects fine but i cant hear or be heard when the call is answered.Interestingly I cannot use the headunit to dial a number anymore. If i was to be on a call BEFORE connecting the headunit then it works. But once the call ends and i select an input source - the phone has the same symtoms as above again. I have checked all the profile settings and set the enhancment to be active on the active profile. I thought Bluetooth was a standard and it was just meant to work if it was bluetooth compliant! ...Grrrrrr!
