Question about Nokia BH-214 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

2 Answers

I paired my Nokia BH 214 Headset with my PC (latest bluetooth drivers installed) and it recognised the headset. However, everytime I want to connect it with the PC it says "A connection attempt has failed, Make sure the device Nokia BH-214 ist turned on and try again.". The headset is turned on and it also makes the typical startup jingle but it just won't connect to my Win 7 PC :/

Hi i have just now done this with mine just to see what is accuring, i think this is dependent on what services your are using, if you locate the blue tooth icon on the start bar, double click on it and find out its properties, i gather you have enabled it and it has asked for pass code 0000? when i look and see what the services are for this device, it actually does not have any, i am a little confused as to why you are connecting it to your pc and as to what purpose it is being used for but normally if it does not supply any services it will not work as there is nothing for it to work with, i thought it could be used for a wireless audio, but no nothing, if you could give me a better idea as to its use on your pc then i might be able to help you further...thanks

    I want to use it for listening to music and to use it for skype. A colleague of mine has an older version and does the same with it (though under Linux).

    It shows some services (Audio sink, Handfree Telephony, Headset, Remote Control, Remotely Controllable Device). I tried all of them, either switched on all together or only the single service, but it did not work.
    You mentioned, that it asked you about the code (0000). It never did this with me. Do you know where I can enter it seperately?

    hi well when i connected mine it asked for one, if you goto control panel, and find the blue tooth icon, double click it and see what is in the "devices" it should show your bh-214 and under it , it should say passkey if it does not show your blue tooth device in there, try adding it and then it should ask for a pass key, which with bt head sets is always 0000 (4xzero) as the main bt software you are using may not be compatable with win 7 try the generic bt software that actually comes with win7 any more help will be here.....

    well, it never asks me for the passphrase or a passkey. I think thats the problem. but how can I enter a passphrase for it when it does not ask me?

Can you let me know what type of bluetooth adaptor is installed? HFP or HSP? There are two protocols for these things; one is Handsfree Protocol (HFP) the other Headset Protocol (HSP). Some USB/builtin adapters only support HSP, so if your adaptor type is HSP, it'll not detect your headset. If possible, try using another adaptor with the HFProtocol, Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

    There is no problem with your pc, but it's the problem with the adaptor. You can purchase it from any computer retailer shop, it look likes a pen-drive, almost all the new arrivals support Bluetooth Headset. But ask them before you buy. Good luck.
    Once again thanks for using FixYa.

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
