Question about Radio Communications

Open Question

I have a set of iWorld WMEGA bluetooth headphones. The device will not do anything while disconnected from the charger; however, when connected to a charger (I've tried 3 different micro USB's), 1 of 3 things will happen. 1. The red LED indicator will blink on for a maximum of about 3 seconds then turn off. From here the device is unresponsive. 2. If the red light does not blink on, I can hold down OR press the power button 8 times and the red LED will come on for about 3 seconds. Then the blue LED will blink 3 times while the red stays on. Half a second after that, the red light turns off and it is again unresponsive. 3. The device does nothing and is unresponsive. The reactions are seemingly random and are not specific to any of the chargers. At this point I've nearly accepted that the battery is just bad, but if anyone knows what the light sequence in 2 means, maybe I can fix it. I've already tried every combination of button pressing I could, and honestly the only reason I'm still trying is because I've spent 2 hours messing with it, so I'm hoping I didn't do that for nothing. Thanks in advance.

Why cant i get my computer to dicover my auvio pbt200 bluetooth speaker?

  1. Try playing other audio files. Ensure that audio can play fine from the same audio device when using a headphone.


  2. If Step 1 is not the case, try listening to audio by connecting the speaker to the Bluetooth device using the Aux-in cable. This will isolate if it's a Bluetooth connection issue or not. Remember to disconnect/un-pair the Bluetooth connection first.


  3. If the issue only happens when connecting via Bluetooth, do the following:
    1. Adjust the distance between the speaker and the Bluetooth device.
    2. Reset the speaker to its factory default settings. For instructions on how to reset your speaker, go to the product's support site to view the relevant knowledgebase article.
    3. Clear the current pairing entry from your Bluetooth device. For instructions on how to clear the pairing entries, consult the user's manual of your Bluetooth device.
    4. Try re-pairing the speaker and the Bluetooth device. For instructions on how to pair the speaker with the Bluetooth device, go to the product's support site to view the relevant knowledgebase article.
    5. To further isolate, try pairing the speaker with other Bluetooth device.

  4. If the issue happens when connecting either on Bluetooth or Aux-in, please contact Creative Customer Support via email.
Note: Creative Bluetooth speakers do not need any driver to operate. You may need to update the Bluetooth driver of your computer's built-in Bluetooth adapter or your USB dongle. To determine whether your computer or USB dongle is updated with the latest Bluetooth driver, please refer to their user's guide or website for information.

Conecting wireless headphones LC195L9A

How Wireless Headphones Work and How to Connect Them jabra_revo_wireless_image_1440x1440px_08.jpg?h=204&w=204Wireless headphones are headphones that connect to a device, such as a smartphone, stereo speaker, television, gaming console, computer, or other electronic devices without using a wire or cable. Wireless headphones work by transmitting audio signals through either radio or IR (infrared) signals, depending on the device.

From call centers to fitness centers, wireless headphones are used by millions of people every day for work and play. For example, wireless headphones are popular with gamers, since it frees you to move around without having to worry about a cord. People doing a workout at the gym or in front of their TV in the living room love the freedom of wireless headphones. They are also perfect for people who want to watch late-night television without disturbing others.

Wireless headphones work by connecting, or pairing, with the device you want to use, through a radio or infrared signal. Many devices use Bluetooth technology to make connecting easier for the user. Devices with Bluetooth technology can connect and exchange data over very short distances using radio transmissions.

A product with Bluetooth technology has a tiny computer chip inside that contains the Bluetooth radio, and software that makes connectivity between devices possible. So when Bluetooth-enabled products, such as a cell phone and headphones, are in close proximity to each other, they connect, or pair. This enables you to talk on the phone or listen to music without wires.

Connecting a wireless headphone differs depending on the device you are using, but it's easy once you know how. Here is a list of the most popular devices that people use with wireless headphones and how to connect them.

Connect Wireless Headphones to a TV

First, make sure that your base is plugged in and the headphone batteries are fully charged. Ensure that the headphones and television are in close proximity to one another. Turn the headset on. Go into setting on your TV and turn on Bluetooth. Find the headphones under Bluetooth devices in your TV and you should be able to hear the television.

You will need to highlight the "Yes" option and click the "X" button on your controller. If the pairing was successful, the device will show up on the screen.
  5. Next, you will see a screen that says "To register (pair), you will need to prepare the Bluetooth device. For information on preparing the device, refer to the instructions supplied with the Bluetooth device."

My hed set not sapprt

Headphones are a convenient way to experience audio-rich entertainment on your own terms. Headphones allow you to customize your listening level without disturbing other people in your general vicinity. Headphone cables can be a hassle, however, so many new headphone models feature a wireless connection. PCs tend to be wire jungles, so eliminating one wire from a potentially jumbled mess can be an intriguing feature of wireless headphones. Connecting wireless headphones to your PC allows you to take advantage of the benefits of listening to your movies, music or games through headphones without the struggle of the headphone cable.

Charge up or place batteries in your headphones and transmitter. Wireless headphones require power to function. Many wireless headphones come with a charger base. You need to charge your headphones before you attempt to connect them to your PC. Some wireless headphone models require batteries, which you must install before you connect the headphones to the PC. Connect the transmitter to your PC. The transmitter may connect via the PC's headphone jack or USB port. If the transmitter connects to the headphone jack, plug it in and check your headphone's user guide to verify how to synchronize the headphones to the transmitter. If the transmitter connects via USB, you will likely need to install software to use your wireless headphones. If your wireless headphones are Bluetooth-compatible, continue to the next step. Pair your headphones via Bluetooth to your PC. If your PC is not Bluetooth-equipped, you will need to install a Bluetooth USB dongle. Turn on your headphones and open the Bluetooth software on your PC. Scan for Bluetooth devices from your PC. Your headphones should appear. Select the headphones and follow any further instructions to complete the pairing process. Test the headphones. Pick out a song or a video and play it on your PC. Connect your wireless headphones and verify that you can hear the audio. Find the volume controls on your headphones and adjust them to make sure the volume changes correctly. If your headphones are not functioning properly, verify that the headphones are turned on. If the headphones are on and you do not hear anything, verify that your transmitter is functioning properly and that you have your volume turned up on your PC. Recharge your headphones when you are finished using them. To ensure that the headphones are ready anytime you need them, you must always place them on the charging base when you are finished using them. If the headphones are battery-powered, be sure that you always have spare batteries on hand. Hope this helps.

How to connet bluetooth on nokia 5230

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to communicate via high-frequency radio signals. Bluetooth headphones are just one of the many devices designed to work with portable music devices as well as ordinary phones. With Bluetooth headphones, you can listen to music as well as make and receive calls--all from the same device. Connecting them is a snap.

1
  • Turn on your cell phone. Enable Bluetooth by accessing your phone's general or network settings. Your phone will search for Bluetooth signals in the area--they are usually denoted by a small icon displayed on the screen. If you don't know how to turn on Bluetooth or aren't sure whether your phone supports Bluetooth technology, refer to your phone's user guide.

  • 2

    Turn on your Bluetooth headphones while near your cell phone. Turning on a Bluetooth-enabled device will usually put it in pairing mode, meaning it is actively searching for a device to connect to. Since your phone also is actively searching for a Bluetooth device, it should find it right away and prompt you to connect to it. It may ask for a password--refer to your headset's user manual for the default password and how to change it.

  • 3

    Test your connection. Once your headset is paired, the phone will usually start sending calls and audio to it without any additional configuration. Some phones may prompt you and ask which device to use. Try making calls and/or playing music. If you hear music from only one ear, your phone may not support stereo Bluetooth. If you don't hear anything, re-pair the headphones. Power off your phone and headphones, then turn them back on and repeat steps 1 and 2.

    T Mobile Wing bluetooth and music help please

    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.

    Sincerely,
    Gina, Communities Connection Manager
