Bluetooth: Cellphone/PC connection issues

Question: Bluetooth: Cellphone/PC connection issues

Hello all,

I have a Motorola Rizr Z3 that I am trying to connect via Bluetooth to my computer. I bought a Bluetooth USB dongle and plugged it in, which shows as having installed with no conflicts.

In the devices menu, I selected Add Device, then set my phone as findable. Once Windows recognised my phone, I selected it, then selected to pair it with with a code. I've tried both automatically as well as creating my own pairing code to no avail. I get the system error below.






Quote:
Adding this Device to this computer failed.

Adding the device failed resulting in an unknown error. The reported error is 0x0004005.

Contact your device manufacturer for assistance.


Does anyone have any idea or suggestions in regards to this one?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I just tried doing the same thing on my laptop, which has a 64bit install of W7 RC, and it's the same thing. So, I'm willing to guess it's not hardware related, as least as far as the computers go. The cellphone itself may be another story.

On the thinkpad, the bluetooth device is present and "working properly".  The wireless switch on the front of the machine is on (green light).  When I click on the bluetooth icon in control panel, the cellphone is not listed.  When I go through the menus on the cellphone, it tells me no bluetooth devices have been found, so it seems like the cellphone bluetooth is working.  It appears that the thinkpad bluetooth is not working; do I need a bluetooth adapter as well as my bluetooth device (RICOH OHCI Compliant IEEE1394 Host Controller)?  When I check the drivers, there are 2 - a windows one (1394bus.sys) and another (ohci1394.sys).  Is it possible that the former driver is being used when the correct one is the latter?  How would I make sure the correct driver is being used for this device?

Hi
Surprise surprise, issues with bluetooth headset.

I've got mine to connect, but when I tried to do it for my partner, all seems to fail. The main issue I have is to make the microphone to work. The laptop seems to be able to recognise, but not use.

Here are some screenshots I took.


This is a screenshot of the bluetooth headset being recognised by her computer as it appears in the bluetooth device settings.

This is a screen shot of the bluetooth recognising the bluetooth microphone in the recording devices menu on my laptop.
This is a screen shot of the same bluetooth headset not being connected to her laptop in the recording devices menu.

If there are any suggestions, please feel free to post.

Thanks

Hello. I just bought Dell laptop and I'm trying to setup internet connection through my cellphone. My cellphone is Nokia 5530 XpressMusic. I followed someone's recommendation to get Nokia Ovi Suite: I downloaded it, added my device, successfully browsed files on the phone, browsed the internet, but after I reboot computer Nokia Ovi Suit says to connect my device, and browsing files/internet doesn't work anymore. Am I doing something wrong, or maybe there's some easier way to connect?

Thank you in advance.

I want to use my Palm Treo cingular connection to access internet through my laptop -- new Lenovo x60.  How can I do this?

Answer:laptop internet via cellphone connection?Help.

I guess it depends partly on which Treo?  Look in the manual, under "modem".  Many phones have an infrared or bluetooth connection which you can use to hook them up to your PC/laptop.  Browsing the web this way can be quite expensive though!

Hi.I've been lurking for a bit and have had most of my questions answered and issues solved bythis fine community. Thank you!My problem is that I can add my bt headphones (I've tried two different sets) in the "add device"option, but once I shut the bt device (headphones in my case) off and then turn them back onagain the sound continues to come from the tablet or stereo speakers (which ever I'm using atthe time) and the sound won't switch to the bt headphones automatically. I must manually go theSound settings in Control Panel options and select the bt headphone to use them again. As ofright now I've got a shortcut to the Sound options on my desktop. Now this isn't a deal breaker forme, but there's got to be an easier way! LOLS!Any suggestions?Thanks!And for the record I have no wifi issues and I've upgraded to 8 gigs of ram so I'm keeping this!!!

Hello, I am an IT Technician for an electric cooperative. I am having a very odd issue that I can not seem to resolve and I am in need of assistance.

We have 4 Dell Latitude notebooks all running XP and we also have some very high end GPS units made by Trimble that we are going to be using to stake out points on a map. Whenever I connection through bluetooth with the GPS I am able to pair but the GPS control software never recognizes it when I chose the COM port assigned to it. Whenever I connect it directly through a cable(serial to usb) it never detects it either.

However this is the odd part, when I test this on my desktop I am able to connect just fine with the exact same method.

Any ideas?

My keyboard won't stay connected to the Bluetooth. Windows disabled the Bluetooth and gave this messge: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)." What is this and how do I fix it? I can't get my Logitech K810 keybaord to stay connected. It pairs, and works for awhile, then disconnests, even though it says it is connected. Driver update says the drivers in place are the right ones. I've also tried Bluetooth dongles to connect with, but I get the same problem -- connects for a while and then disconnects.

Hi,

I really had not this 'Bluetooth connection' before.
But, I really don't know that pairing my Nokia Bluetooth with my HP Laptop Bluetooth would add this Bluetooth connection or NOT.
I really guess this Bluetooth Connection was listed there when I connected my Lapotp Bluetooh with Nokia Bluetooth.
Thus, I will really not have any problems if I deleted it. But I am asking you what benefit of that Bluetooth Connection.
This is below was not here:

Finally Could please let me know how to use this Bluetooth Connection.(How to benefit from it)? I really use an ADSL Internet subscription, and not Dial-up connection. Also, I am connected wirelessly to a Modem-Router. Thus, what password and username should I type in the fields in the above screen shot?

Answer:'Bluetooth connection' is shown in my Network Connection suddnly.

Pairing a mobile phone will create such an entry and there's nothing to worry about. I don't think you can use it to go online since as you said you are using ADSL and if you want to go online via your modem with your phone just use the wifi connection

I am trying to sync my mobile phone(Nokia) with my pc. I have the software and installed it but on first installation was asked to select a connection type. I selected Infrared, but later found that bluetooth is better, so bought a bluetooth dongle instead. I have installed the bluetooth correctly, but on starting Nokia software, I only have the option of infrared for initial connection before I can run the program for the first time. I tried uninstalling then re-installing the software, but have since found out that the software stores a file in the computer to "remember" the first connection method I selected. Therefore, even after system restore followed by re-installing the software, it still asks for an infrared connection. Can someone please tell me how to delete this/these files so I can start afresh using bluetooth because I don't want to buy infrared hardware just to start the program so I can switch to bluetooth!
Can someone please help a very frustrated numpty?!?!

Bluetooth usually takes awhile to connect, due to the fact that Windows has other services and processes that load during log in, prior to bluetooth devices being detected and connecting. What's the make and model of your bluetooth mouse?

Evening One and all, I purchased a cheap laptop at the weekend, and ran a network cable downstairs to it to enable internet/e-mail and lan connection, after a couple of initials problems (resolved here of course :-) )this worked well with full net access plus access to the shared files on the three desktops.Today, it seemed that the opportunity to purchase a bluetooth setup at a discount cost was too much to resist. The access point is a Belkin (no specific model number), and the laptop connection unit is a Belkin usb adaptor. After the initial install, I could access the net via a 'BluetoothNullConnection' modem in the dial-up settings of IE. This is stable enough, but at 115kbps is maybe a little slow as it has a 600k connection available - still it works.The problem is that I cannot access the other pc's on the lan. The standard local area connection quite rightly states that the cable is missing, as did a bluetooth lan adaptor which also appeared. After an uninstall/reinstall, I again have the net access, but still not the lan access - and now the bluetooth lan adaptor is not there either. Given that I can see the router at the 'far end' of the network, can someone suggest how to take this a step further and see the other pc's?If I run the network wizard, the bluetooth adaptor is not available to select as the required connection.The laptop is running xp home, and the pc's xp pro. Also, the desktops are connected via cable to the router (Linksys BEFSR41) as are the cable ... Read more

Hey guys!

Just recently purchased the Big Jambox, and I want to connect it via bluetooth. I connected it to my phone and Ipod, but it won't connect to my computer? I am trying to install drivers, but I just can't find the right one. I have an ASUS G55VW, and I can't connect to it! Thanks.

Answer:Bluetooth Connection

Are you sure the laptop has Bluetooth? It's listed as an option on the Asus website and if it came with Bluetooth you shouldn't need to install any drivers as it would have come with them already installed from Asus.

You may be able to get the optional Bluetooth module from Asus or Ebay or where ever but it would probably be easier and less expensive to get one of the little USB Bluetooth dongles like this: IOGEAR GBU521 Bluetooth 4.0 Micro Adapter - Newegg.com

Here is the step-by-step way to connect two laptops using Bluetooth.

Software and Hardware Requirements

In-built Bluetooth device on laptopBluetooth dongle (optional)Bluetooth drivers (optional)

Important - Since Bluetooth use short wave radio frequencies for data transfer, devices using radio waves should not be placed within 100 meter radius. Bluetooth signals weaken if the devices are placed more than 100 meters apart. Also before connecting the two laptops using Bluetooth, make sure that neither of the laptop is infected with any sort of virus or malicious program. They can easily get transferred from one laptop to another without your knowledge.

Step 1 ? Determine the Type of Bluetooth
The first step is to determine the type of Bluetooth device your laptop has. Refer user?s manual of your laptop to determine this. If it has inbuilt Bluetooth, proceed to step 3, else, proceed as follows:

Step 2 ? Install Bluetooth
Purchase a Bluetooth dongle from market (usually costs $10) and insert it in one of the USB ports. Windows XP or higher versions of Windows do not require any sort of driver installation, however, if it?s Windows 98, install the drivers. All types of Bluetooth also come bundled with control software, which should also be installed at this step.

Step 3 ? Switch on the Bluetooth
Switch on the Bluetooth of each laptop. A bright blue glowing light indicates that the Bluetooth has been switched on and ready for connectivity.

Step 4 ? Assign Status

We can try to briefly check these with the following methods, or use stronger programs if required..

There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. This gives a preliminary reading, and clears your Antivirus/Antimalware programs.
You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
If using Windows Vista, 7 or 8 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
A black DOS box will briefly flash for a minute or so, and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.

Question: Bluetooth issues

So I purchased an HP Elitebook 2760p recently. It had previously been upgraded to windows 10. I have attempted to use the bluetooth and it doesn't want to work. I am under the impression that this computer has bluetooth based on other threads and forums, but I don't even have the option to turn bluetooth on or off. I have also searched for a bluetooth adapter in device manager but I can't seem to find it in there. Is it simply a software issue or what?

I've managed to go through all of the steps needed in order to set up a connection, but the problem is that I cant get the tablet to "see" the Bluetooth signal from the phone in order to actually use it. On a brief occasion I can, when in "discovery" mode from the phone, get a pairing to occur, only to then loose it. I cant, on most occasions when trying to get the computer to discover the phone, even find the phone when it's sitting right on top of the USB adaptor!

This same phone easily pairs with my PDA running Windows Mobile 6.5.

My wife's phone easily pairs with the computer, and I'm even able to send files back and forth (I can do this sometimes with my phone), however her phone does not support tethering so I cant see if I can connect that way.

The Bluetooth control panel in XP does not offer much in the way of help, so I'm stuck.

If anyone has any advice on how to get this going, I'll be more than thankful!
 

Answer:XP And Bluetooth Issues

Did the adapter work straight out of the box or did it come with a CD? If yes to the first and you didn't bother with the CD for that reason, it might be worth using it now.

Question: bluetooth issues

hi everyone. i have a wifi+bluetooth antenna(s) screwed into the back of my computer. I'm not sure of the antennae model #.
there are 2 ports in the back of my PC, and I screw in the two antennae. the antennae have long(ish) thin cables that are flexible and sort of like wires, so I can move the antennae wherever I want.
i play Rocket League (the game) a lot, and I use a PS4 controller wirelessly to play it (or wired if it needs to charge). I use DS4 (a program) to make the computer recognize the bluetooth signal of the PS4 controllers.
the DS4 program tells what the controller's latency is, and it's often pretty high. it's not supposed to be over about 2 ms, but it goes above 10 sometimes. this makes it hard to play rocket league, even though I sit a foot away from the antennae.
I want to know, are there any GOOD antannae out there that would make my controllers not lag? If I buy a quality bluetooth dongle, how would I make the dongle recognize my PS4 controllers instead of my bluetooth+wifi antennae?
Thanks

Answer:bluetooth issues

I've had latency issues with my DS4 on my PC as well when trying to connect via BT. In the end, I ended up just keeping a long (6-8ft) USB cable plugged in, and just plug into that if I want to use the controller for something.

I have tried to use a bluetooth dongle to connect my phone to my computer and it tells me I have an outdated driver so I spent $30 to update
all my drivers.  Then I spend another $30 to add an antivirus.  Then I was told that my bluetooth would work.  Not only does my bluetooth not work (which when I
first purchased it it worked fine) my usb with my phone also says my driver is outdated.  I have had nothing but problems out of this piece of BLEEP Windows 7 since day one.  Oh and I tried downloading windows 10 all day and I still have windows

Question: bluetooth issues

Hi, i want to connect a wiimote to my PC with Bluetooth. I have been doing lots of research into this and everyone else can do it except me! and it's extremely frustrating so here's my issue i click "add new device" and it finds the wiimote just fine but when i try and connect it asks for a paring code. Which i don't have. But nobody can help me everywhere else people can click "continue without code" or just click "next" without typing a code but i cant do either and i'm stuck on the code page... I'm really hopeful that someone here knows the code or can fix this or get around it.Thanks in advance.

Answer:bluetooth issues

Did you try entering "0000" (4 zeroes) as the pairing code?  Many devices use that as their code.

See if your notebook has a switch or a button that enables bluetooth. Also, which G62 do you have? It may be your system does not have bluetooth.

I have some serious problems with my bluetooth gear.

1. Connecting my headphones while im playing a game causes windows to crash completely (windows basically freezes) and I have to log out or reboot my computer.
2. Windows refuses to connect my headphones after a fresh install. I have installed the latest bluetooth drivers from broadcom. (This was solved by enabling the background intelligent transfer service in services.msc. I had to browse through hours of useless answers from microsoft customer service to find this. Apparently, windows 10 has the bluetooth driver management service enabled by default, which allows you to pair your bluetooth headphones. But it doesn't have the background intelligent transfer service enabled, which seems to be required to connect bluetooth headphones. So make sure to have both services enabled in services.msc. This is a combination of bad software design and incompetent customer support.)
3. Windows is refusing to let me use my bluetooth keyboard. Windows doesn't find it sometimes when its powered on. After about 2 hours of trying to connect my keyboard, windows sometimes finds it if im lucky, then asks me for a pairing code, without giving me a pairing code. Windows then refuses to connect my keyboard to my computer because windows wants a pairing code without showing what the pairing code is, basically preventing me from using my keyboard. This is insanely frustrating.

Answer:Serious bluetooth issues

You say this has been happening for YEAR'S? If its been going on for that long I would have to think its related to your motherboard. Might be time to get a new machine. Does it do this right after a O.S. install or re-install? Have you tried uncoupling all your Bluetooth devices and recoupling them? Have you updated your BIO'S and/or chipset? You could try a system file check, but if its been going on for that long I really think it's probably organic in nature.

it will sometimes recognise the device when plugged in, add drivers etc, but will not properly show it in device mgr, it just shows it as an unknown device, and although the device is 'flashing' its still not recognised, also if i open bluetooth local com in control panel and go to add new device i get the error message, 'bluetooth manager (Tosbtmng.exe) has not been started, i just cannot find a way to get windows to install it.

I know when xp sp2 was introduced this was when the problems began, because the widdcom drivers are not digitally signed by m/soft

Answer:cellphone

So, you own a Motorola V3 Razr. Odds are you have been roaming around the web reading random sites, getting blurbs about "seems", "flashing", "flexing", and more. You're confused, lost, and ready to pay somebody to do this, or give up. Well, thats what this site is for: to help.
Lets talk about modding the Motorola Razr. First off, why mod the thing at all? Well, lots of reasons! First, its cool. You can personalize your phone (change the outer picture, make it louder, use different fonts, change the look of it all, etc). Also, changing the software on the phone can increase your reception, your volume, the menu speed, and much more.

So how do you mod? And what are all those terms? Ok, here's the scoop. You're familiar with computers a little, I assume, if you are attempting to mod a phone. So, I'll lay it out here.

The Flex
The flex is the files and branding of the phone. It contains all the carrier specific menus and images, like T-Zones for T-Mobile, or whichever graphic branding and text links your carrier puts in the phone.
The Flash
The flash is the part we change most often. By now we have several types, but basically, the flash is the software of the phone. When you change the flash, it adjusts features, menus, and more. Also, things like the way your phone handles reception or menu speed are handled by flashes. Flashing your phone will not erase any of your media or settings. Then there'... Read more

Hi Not sure if this should be in here or the networking forum, but here goes.I am going to buy the Canon Pixma IP6220D printer.

Answer:BLuetooth Printer connection

Bluetooth was designed with interoperability in mind, however there are different versions and profiles. I see the BU-20 explicitly states it is Bluetooth 1.2 and the Belkin adaptor is 1.1 compatible so there is a real chance they wont work but never having tried it.......

I just received a Braven 625s wireless speaker for Christmas.  After updating my Bluetooth driver on my machine (which now reads "ThinkPad Bluetooth 2.1 with Enhanced Data Rate II") and re-adding the device, I finally got it to work wirelessly.  However the Bluetooth connection will not persist consistently.  It originally went off after about 30 minutes.  I saw another post on this board that said to uncheck the ?Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power? box under the Power Management tab of the Bluetooth device in Device Manager, so I did and that allowed the speaker to work for about an hour before it went silent again.  It remained silent for about 10-15 minutes before the sound came back on.  The sound remained on for about an hour, and then went off for about 20 minutes, then back on for 15 minutes, then went off and remained off for over 50 minutes before I manually disconnected the Bluetooth connection.  During the other times of silence, I am not manually doing anything with the connection or the speakers- the speakers remain on and the Bluetooth connection remains Connected.  Even in the Playback Devices section, I could see my Bluetooth device look like it was working (the green bars would bounce up and down as if they were playing the music that was still ?playing? off of my Lenovo), but no sound was coming out of the speaker.  Can someone help on why this is happening?  I als...

Answer:Bluetooth connection not working

Hi, heath
 
What is the machine type and model of your ThinkPad, and what is your operating system? Also, when the event described in your post happened, were you using the computer actively, or just something like playing music or watching a film? And what version is your Bluetooth driver? 
 
My first recommendation would be to make sure that your BIOS is updated, as an older BIOS can sometimes be responsible for odd issues. You can find the latest BIOS for your system here. Just select your machine type and find the driver associated with your operating system.
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes

It might be that when you installed XP again you have not installed the bluetooth drivers.

Answer:Bluetooth connection problems

I don't know anything about your laser measuring device. But usually, for bluetooth devices, the first time you try to connect with the computer through the USB adapter, you need to "pair" them by inputting any combination of numbers (both on the computer, and on the external device). The set of numbers can be anything you want. It's just to make sure that you're connecting the right bluetooth device. If there's a keypad on the laser device, just enter any PIN, and do the same on the computer when prompted.

hello again. Jst a few hours ago I bought a usb bluetooth dongle, I think it's class II, and connected to my computer. It is recognised and seems to work. The only bluetooth device i have is my Pocket PC, a HP iPAQ h1940.

My computer can find it and set up a connection, and my PDA can find my computer. my problem starts when I want to do anything useful. My PDA doesnt find any services that I recognise as useful (OBEX File Transfer, most importantly). it only finds something (a so-called service) called "P" and the icon is a pair of cogs with a question mark over it. It doesnt do anything.when i click on it on my PDA, it just says "Connecting ...." for ever and doesnt actually connect. what's wrong with it?! This happens with my PC and my laptop.

I've connected to a computer with my PDA and transferred files before so i know it's possible, and should be much easier than this, but i dont know what's going wrong now.

I bet the problem is really obvious :-S. anything that might help?

ok, still not solved the problem, but I discovered on the disc that came with the dongle there was Bluesoleil 1.4 which i installed. But for some reason it crashes the comp everytime I put the dongle in while the program is running. I get BSOD with reference to USBOHCI.SYS which is apparently a problem a lot of people have had but not one person seems to know the soluton too, or maybe i'm just missing it... WHAT DO I DO?!?! I just wanna transfer some files!

I started looking for the Widcomm software but I can't find it at all. any help with that?

oh btw, the dongle is a Silicon Wave, it says here #points at Device Manager#.
My PDA apparently uses WIDCOMM; is that a problem?

Purchased a Yoga 2 Pro a month ago.Noticed when connecting to a bluetooth 3.0 Wireless headset, the signal is relatively weak and intermittently interrupted when walking away from the computer. Wondering is this an isolated issue to a unit?Has anyone tried to connect Yoga 2 Pro with any bluetooth 3.0 Wireless headset? Is it working ok? Thx.

I bought an i& desktop with BT keyboard & mouse. I've recently begun to lose connectivity with the keyboard.

I also upgraded to a Samsung SSD and I mention that as it is the reason I removed a lot of bloatware. Long story short, I call Sony and they cant help naturally except to send a new keyboard. The instrucitons tell me to use a file on C named wconnect.exe to enable pairing of the new keyboard.

And it's one of the files I cleaned out and Sony cant help except to tell me to do a factory restore to get it. I dont have the three days it would take.

Can anyone make any suggestions that would help ? Thanks.

Answer:Sony Bluetooth KBD Connection help

That right there would be reason enough for me to never buy another product from them again.
Using a ridiculous proprietary connection system without allowing the software to be downloaded separately.

On that note does it work at all?
Have you tried changing your power options to always on? (may help keep connection alive)

My iPhone is connected (paired) with my T400 (7417-CT0), but the T400 says there is a problem with the connection. There is an exclamation point on the iPhone's icon in the Devices and Printers window. I want to get photos off the iPhone via drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste. When I right-click on the icon and click Connect using >> Access Point, I get an error message saying "The connection with the Bluetooth device failed." Any ideas what to do?

Hi there, I have a T61p machine with Vista Ultimate, SP1. I have all the latest patches from Lenovo. I have a docking station that I use at my desk. When the machine is docked I used a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth and Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth. Ever since I purchaced this machine (about 3 months ago, with Vista Ultimate) I have been having the same issue. If I have not used the keyboard for sometime (say greater than 5 minutes) the first time I click any key on the keyboard, the machine partially hangs. It will continue to play video or do other non interactive tasks, but for the next 45 seconds to 1 minute, the machine will not accept input from the keyboard, and it won't accept input from the mouse. I previously used the same Bluetooth mouse and keyboard with a Dell laptop and had no such issues (in fact, I still own that laptop, and it still has no issues with this keyboard and mouse) What action should I take?

Answer:Bluetooth connection hangs

Hello, Are there any power management features enabled for the Bluetooth adapter or devices in the Device Manager?  If so, does disabling them solve the problem? Regards, Aryeh Goretsky

Answer:wireless bluetooth connection

Hi, you seem to have done just about everything possible, so one can only guess that the Bluetooth Dongle (that is what it is called) may be faulty.

I am able to send from my pc to my phone and tablet but the pc won't receive from either device. The phone and tablet have no problem going both directions with each other. The paired flag on the pc briefly flashes from paired to connected when I try to send, but then it immediately goes back to paired with an error message on the phone or tablet that the transfer failed.

Toshiba Satellite A200 with Win HP Home SP3

Trying to get a Bluetooth connection to my new Palm T|X

Setting up Bluetooth, I checked &#8220;Turn Discovery on&#8221; & unchecked &#8220;Turn off the Bluetooth radio&#8221; in the options Tab under Bluetooth devices.

When I tried to apply these changes I received the following error message (which Microsoft does not seem to know exists, from my search of their support section):

An error occurred while Windows was saving your settings. The following settings were not saved: Discoverability settings Connection settings

&#8220;Restore defaults&#8221; did not turn on Discovery, but did allow Bluetooth radio. Restore Defaults received a similar message (minus Connection settings)

My Palm does not detect the lap top from 1 foot away, nor does the laptop detect the Palm
 

Answer:Solved: Bluetooth connection

my first suspect would be the bluetooth device attached to your laptop, i would try to use a different bluetooth enabled device to connect to your laptop, try someones mobile phone or even a handsfree headset if you have one
