Question about Sony DR-BT21G Wireless Headset

Open Question

My SONY DR-BT21G headphones only work when I press the reset button with a pin to turn them on. Pressing the main power button (and holding) no longer turns them on or off, and when they're on, the controls on the headphones don't work.

SOURCE: sony trinitron KV G21S2(i think)

Id you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and take the set into an authorized Sony repair place to estimate the cost to repair. Yes I know it would be nice to repair, but how much do you know about component level printed circuit board repair? You will need to first get a service manual, know how to read a circuit diagram, thats a schematic, and know how every circuit works with each other to make the TV set operate. I do appriciate the fact you would like to repair this yourself, but there is no magic fix in most cases when it comes to electronics. There is circuit diagnosise involved. Best advice would be to call in a pro to assist you in these types of repairs. Good Luck

SOURCE: TV won't turn on, delay/timer light flashing

Please update this with the blink count. That will indicate the circuit in which a problem was found. Once I have that information I should be able to give you the probable cause and remedy.

I have no volume no sound Would a Hard Reset fix this problem?

A hard reset is worth a try but it is unlikely to fix the problem, it sounds like a hardware issue.

Here are instructions for a hard reset
Make sure the tablet is OFF.
Press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time.
When the Android starts to flash, release the buttons.
Then try to press different hardware buttons until you are given a list of options.

Note: If Volume Up and Power doesn't work, try Volume Down and Power.

It seems your laptop Bluetooth could be 1.1 version and headphones are 2.1 it won't work. I would suggest wired headset or get a 2.1 the difference is 1.1 doesn't not allow high quality sound 2.1 does allow stereo sound. here is a sample IOGear USB 2.1 Bluetooth Micro Adapter GBU421

Turn off your printer and press the POWER BUTTON while pressing and holding the STOP/RESET BUTTON.

When the Power on, press the STOP/RESET BUTTON twice while pressing and holding the POWER BUTTON.

Release the POWER and STOP/RESET BUTTONS. Your printer will now move into the service mode.

When the power light turns green, press the STOP/RESET BUTTON 4 times.

You will then notice that each time the STOP/RESET BUTTON is pressed, the LED lights change from orange to green.

Now turn off your printer, then turn it back on.

If it doesn't work, keep trying from first step.

Most things these days are not meant to be repaired.
If you can get a replacement from Sony, that would be the way to go. Wires can be soldered. Printed circuit wires can be wired around. It would mean attaching wires externally or opening up the insulation and glueing it back. Not a good look, but it would function if you can do that kind of work.

Sony walkman nwz a828 wont turn on

Have experienced similar issues to yourself. When I try to connect the bluetooth headphones the unit will not pick them up then, when ending bluetooth, the unit freezes. I found that pressing the reset button with a pin (on the rear) will turn the player on again. However, this has not yet solved the bluetooth connectivity issue.

How do I connect my Sony Bluetooth headset DR BT21G to my Vaio

I solved this problem by turning off my phone which had bluetooth active while i was trying to get audio through. thats why the bluetooth never connected to my headset as the phone was using up the bandwith.
make sure your headset is the only bluetooth device and then go into your bluetooth properties -> audio -> select your headset and press connect
now go into your sound options and it should be listed there if it connected succesfully. set if as default and remember to restart the music programm youre running
enjoy!!! =D
