How can the Yaesu BU-2 Bluetooth module be reset?

On the Yaesu FTM-400, if the Bluetooth pairing has gotten messed up, can the BU-2 module be reset? The problem is, once the BU-2 has been paired with a headset, if that headset is reset or otherwise forgets its pairings, the BU-2 refuses to re-pair with it. Presumably the radio believes it is still paired with the headset, although the headset has forgotten the radio. There is an awkward workaround: The BU-2 module remembers only the last eight headsets it was paired with. So if you pair eight new headsets, the BU-2 will forget the original messed-up headset, and will now happily re-pair with it. Of course, at that point it's also paired with seven other headsets you or your friends had laying around. Has anyone discovered a better way to reset the BU-2? I've been using my Vxi BlueParrot B250-XT+ with the FTM-400 for a couple months. I accidentally reset the headset, and now the radio refuses to pair with it. This happened previously when I first got the radio, and I discovered the eight-headset trick. It's just a pain to dig up that many headsets, and I'm looking for a better solution.

    I have the same issue for a long time. Can't find any information from the internet. Eventually, just tried to find in Japeness and find this manual.http://www.yaesu.com/jp/manuals/yaesu_m/... Translate with google can understand how it works. Basically, power off the radio. Press the little button for 5 Sec while turning on the radio. FYR

Testimonial: "Excellent, thank you @JCalvin!! I can confirm this technique works as described. After performing the BU-2 reset, I successfully re-paired my (formerly-ignored) Vxi headset."

    @JCalvin you are a lifesaver! I did this with the BU-2 bluetooth card in my FTM-10R/E and I was able to re-pair my Sena SMH10 headset (model number dropping for SEO so some poor schlub doesn't have to go through what I did) successfully. Yaesu US technical support didn't even know this trick, so you're one up on them! ;)

SOURCE: Wireless headset pairing

Hello,
With the Samsung WEP210 this is a common problem (which is actually just a user error)
This is what you do:
1. Of coarse make sure the headset is charged
2. Make sure the bluetooth headset if OFF
3. PRESS and HOLD the top/middle (on/off) button until the light stays on (it will blink then should stay on continuously). That means it is now in pairing mode.
4. Tell you phone to search for bluetooth devices.
5. It should find the headset, and by default type "0000" to pair your new headset**

**You can use whatever pin code you like......but I would recommend the default which is four zeros.

SOURCE: bluetooth pairing

that motorola is in the series of bluetooths that all have 0000 for pin numbers and they are NOT changeable.
turn bluetooth off push the button with the phone on it until lited LED turns Purple immediately release and open mic, now it is ready to pair.
then go to the phone tool>bluetooth> search for device enter pin 0000
it will then verify and Voila you are set

Yaesu 3100 transmit problems


There are several reasons you may not be able to transmit with the FTM-3100R:

1) Your antenna is not matched to the frequency of use and presents a high SWR. The 3100 protects itself from high SWR by refusing to transmit
2) You have somehow enabled the busy-channel-lockout feature in the setup menu, and you are operating with an open squelch
3) Your DC power supply voltage is too low to support transmit current
4) You are transmitting with too low a power setting and the receiver cannot hear you
5) You are attempting to transmit to a repeater that uses a CTCSS squelch tone, and you do not have the proper squelch tone configured

Both of the LEDs to the left of the display should turn red to indicate you are transmitting. If both LEDs turn red, your problem is likely either #4 or #5.

How do I stop the received beep at end of a transmission from other radios. Mine is a Yaesu ftm-400dr


In the case of your radio, this answer is incorrect if you are getting them after digital transmissions. On the Yaesu FTM-400XDR to turn off the beep after someone transmist you want to go to the setup screen. then press the TX/RX button. Then Press Digital button. Then set option 4 Standby Beep to Off.

Yaesu ftm-10e squelch problem


The FTM-10E is the european version of the dual band amateur radio capable of transmitting in the amateur VHF & UHF (144Mhz & 440Mhz ) bands, that is equal to the FTM-10R sold in the US.

Many repeaters require a predetermined sub-audible tone or signal to be sent when transmitting. If several repeaters in the area operate on the same frequency, they would all transmit at the same time unless they all have different sub-audible tones. These tones allow the user to select which repeater on the same frequency will be used. The tones are either CTCSS or DCS type. CTCSS is "continuous tone coded squelch system" and DCS is "digital coded squelch". CTCSS is expressed as a frequency in Hertz and DCS is a code expressed as a number. CTCSS is more popular, since it has been around longer. When programming or tuning the radio, you will need to provide the repeater's output frequency (and the input frequency if the shift direction and amount isn't programmed - often a 600 hertz shift either up or down depending on isn't already programmed is a default value depending on the repeater output frequency) and whether or not the repeater requires a tone. If it does require a tone (most do), you will need to know the type (CTCSS or DCS) and the value (frequency for CTCSS or code number for DCS) in order for your transmitter to open the repeater and cause it to repeat your transmission AND open the squelch on the radio's receiver so that you can hear replies to your call and other conversations. Repeater directories (both printed and online) will provide all the information needed to access a public repeater, including geographical location, input & output frequencies, squelch type and values to name a few.

If you do not have the correct CTCSS or DCS set, you will see the signal meter on the radio indicate traffic - but you will not hear anything because the radio is squelched. Check the manual page 40 for information on how to program the squelch, and page 42 describes the "shift" I mentioned above. Page 64 & 65 details the theory of squelch via CTCSS and DCS and will help you understand it better.

Basically, you have a "standard" squelch - the knob on the radio and a second squelch that is either CTCSS or DCS. Both types must be set to hear anything. Not having the CTCSS or DCS set will prevent your signal from being repeated by the repeater.

If you have more question, please add them in a comment. I hope this helps & good luck!

All bluetooth connectivity stopped with my 2010 Equinox. Icon will not display and cannot pair any devices.


The picture Im sending you is the information on your vehicle based on what I can get from General motors tech website to inform you if your intstructions in owners manual are unable to correct your situation.There really no way to quick fix the issue.here is the page information; Before reading note there are unavailable sections or links because it is pasted from a General motors page unavailable to public.
You are looking at a trip to General motors unfortunately unless you can find a shop with a tech 2 scan tool.

Circuit/System Description
The Bluetooth ® antenna is a small fixed antenna connected directly to the telematics communication interface control module and is used to send and receive signals from a Bluetooth ® enabled cellular phone. The antenna utilizes no cabling and is not external to the vehicle.
In order to use hands-free calling, the cellular phone must be paired to the vehicle. Up to five devices can be paired to the vehicle at one time, but only one can be connected at any given time. To pair a phone, the customer must know how to operate the Bluetooth ® functionality of their phone. The pairing process must only be done one time for each phone, unless that phone’s information is deleted. For safety reasons, the pairing process is disabled while the vehicle is moving.
Diagnostic Aids • The purpose of this diagnostic is to verify the ability of the telematics communication interface control module to pair to a Bluetooth ® device. • Before performing this test, verify compatibility of the cellular phone(s) the customer is attempting to use with the vehicle. Based on the cellular phone’s service provider and the manufacturer’s implementation of Bluetooth ®, not all phones support all available Bluetooth ® functionality. A vehicle and feature compatibility list will be provided via the GM Bluetooth ® website: http://www.gm.com/vc/bluetooth/ • If the vehicle passes the following tests and a compatible device is being used, the concern may be due to a device malfunction or an incomplete/improper pairing attempt. • A Bluetooth ® test tool or equivalent can also be used to verify the ability of the customers cellular phone(s) to pair with another device.

Circuit/System Verification
  1. Verify DTC B2485 is not set.
  2. → If DTC B2485 is set , refer to DTC B2485
  3. Set up a Bluetooth ® test tool or equivalent.
  4. Ignition ON, perform the discovery/search operation with the test tool. Verify the vehicle appears in the list of available devices.
  5. → If the vehicle is not in the list of available devices, repeat the discovery/search operation. If the vehicle is still not in the list of available devices, replace the K73 telematics communication interface control module.
  6. Follow the instructions provided in the Vehicle Owners Manual for pairing a device. Verify successful pairing with the test tool.
  7. → If pairing is not successful, repeat the pairing process. If pairing is still not successful, replace the K73 telematics communication interface control module.
  8. Refer to Diagnostic Aids.
