Question: P50 - Why bluetooth headphone doesn't show up in t...

My Lenovo laptop is P50 running Window 7 64-bit, when I tried to pair a bluetooth headphone with it, the headphone didn't show up in the laptop's bluetooth device list. Could you please help me out?
Device Manager's Bluetooth Radios has Intel Wireless Bluetooth and Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator.

The iHome headphone's Spec says:" The product is compatible with any bluetooth devices that supports A2DP, AVRCP, Hands-Free, or Handset Profiles"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you connect any Bluetooth Headset or Devices using Audio + Hands-Free Profile with Windows 10 build 10049 Bluetooth Stack, it uses only Audio and doesn't allow Hands-Free use.
I have tested 2 different devices, Windows registers both profiles, but never allows Hands-Free, so it isn't possible to use cortana, teamspeak or any Voip-Application by now.
With different Bluetooth Stacks, I tested Toshiba's, it works, but other issues occur.
Previously used devices may not connect at all, because they seem to be already registered to Toshibas Stack, but not working at all. Any suggestions or ideas?

Ralink Bluetooth 4.0 is the hardware i have (i think?) It worked the first time i used it several years ago, but only provided a terrible sound quality for my headphones. After that first use, it never worked again. Last year I went to best buy to have the geek squad fix it, but that didn't work either. Earlier today, i decided to try downloading updated drivers to get it to work. After spending about 2 hours bumbling around the internet and downloading 3 different drivers, the bluetooth switch in the "wireless" settings screen got annoyed with me and decided to leave completely. Can someone help me finally get it to function? I'm willing to try just about anything at this point. Note: If you need more information than what i've posted below, you'll have to tell me how to get it. I'm not a computer geek to any extent. The 3 drivers i installed:sp65805.exesp63076.exesp63019.exeall of which i got from the official HP support website for my specific computer. After downloading the third one, the bluetooth switch disappeared. Windows 8.0HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n088ca Notebook PCModel #:F0Q62UARSerial #:6CI3493NHB Underneath the wifi switch, there should be a bluetooth switch. It was there before i started messing with things. I haven't a clue what i should do to get it to work.

Answer:Bluetooth does not work (and the switch doesn't even show up...

Hi, Your machine is an  HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n088ca Notebook :      http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03940371 No available information for Bluetooh on the HP Partstore   http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=F0Q62UAR But I believe it uses Ralink Bluetooth. Please try Ralink Bluetooth Software Driver for Windows 8:    http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63001-63500/sp63019.exe Regards.

I have my SL400 upgraded from Vista to Win 7 professional recently. However when I tried to turn on/off radio by using Fn+F5, I can only see the option for WIFI, not Bluetooth. The Bluetooth seems working fine and I am able to connect my BT device to SL400, but can't find controls to turn it off. I tried to reinstalled Bluetooth drive but it doesn't help. What is the proper way to turn on/off BT under Win 7 environment? How can I integrate BT control into Fn+F5 windoes? thanks

Answer:Bluetooth control doesn't show up on Fn+F5 after upgrade to Win7

Did you install the Lenovo Bluetooth driver or just let Windows install it's stock ones?

Hi Guys,

I am trying to buy a new "sports headphone" to be used at the gym. Unfortunately, where I am, I only either have bluetooth 2.0 + NFC or Bluetooth 4.0 (only 1 or 2 options) without NFC.

I am really keen on NFC, as I have a S4 and really keen to try NFC, would really appreciate any feedback on this? Is BT2.0 with NFC a better option in terms of easy of use or a simple BT3.0 or BT4.0 without NFC be a safer bet?

I am not too sure how stable the NFC technology now is, so thats my only concern.

Would appreciate some feedback on this.

Thanks
 

Answer:NFC or bluetooth sports headphone?

Since NFC only works up to a few inches, it must be used just for the setup. The Bluetooth would then be used as the link between the headphones and phone.

I can't use my bluetooth headphone and wired earpiece simultaneously. whenever I connect my bluetooth headphone to my laptop, the wired earpiece stops working.I'm having Dell XPS L501X with Realtek High Definition Audio.Is there any way to make them work simultaneously?

Answer:Can't use bluetooth headphone with earpiece!!

I don't think there is because usually when you plug in a headset or turn on a bluetooth headset it disables the speakers, so I suspect that bluetooth essentially does the same to your wired headset - probably nothing that can be done about it unless you happen to find a setting in the realtek control panel that disables the 'feature'."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

Are you using vendor's bluetooth drivers? If so, remove it, reboot and let your system install the Microsoft bluetooth stack. You may have to uninstall your hardware manually too (from device manager)

I have a Insignia bluetooth wireless headphones that I want to use to listen to my Viso VO37L flat screen TV. So I put a Soundblaster Audigy soundcard in my spare computer and connected the TV headphone jack to the input line of the soundcard. I can now have the TV audio playing through the computers speakers. The problem is that no matter what I try I can't get the signal to the headphones. I have WIDCOMM bluetooth 5.1.0.3900 software installed on the computer and it works fine ,I can hear all Window XP sounds as well as the media player and other software audio. I tried using a few recording software programs thinking I could use the monitoring feature to hear the in-line input, but even though I could record the input and hear the replay I couldn't hear the monitor. This whole Idea seemed so simply but not I am thinking that "you can't get there from here". If anyone knows what I am missing I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

I own a macbook pro and runs windows 7 by bootcamp. The headphone is JBL e40bt.
I tried to use my bluetooth headphone it had always failed and it said there was no driver for "bluetooth peripheral device."
I then downloaded the ASUS driver thing from here: Can't find drivers for bluetooth headset - Windows 7 Help Forums
And the problem was solved.

But now when I connect my headphone, it is only good immediately after I connect it. As long as I play something continuously the headphone won't switch off by itself and nothing's wrong. But if there's no audio input from the computer to the headphone for like a minute and then I start playing music, the audio is skipped. I have to reconnect the device for it to return normal.

Please help me. It is quite annoying. It's okay if I am playing games and stuff but I when I'm playing music I can't let it stop.

In Device Manager, there are three listings for it (Aukey model EP-B4). Each listing says there are no drivers installed. Have tried updating each and all but after an age for Windows searching for drivers I had to use Ctrl-Alt-Del to close it.

I didn't know where to put this, or what kind of problem this is.
I have a pair of Bluetooth headphones and an ASUS bluetooth USB adapter.
When I turn on the Bluetooth headset, I have to manually go into the Sound settings and change the "Default" to the Asus Adapter.
Though ZId love to know if there is a fix to this, it's easy enough to live with. The thing I cant stand though, is when I do switch any default device in the Sound settings, I also have to close all programs that were open when making the switch. Otherwise, the programs (like iTunes and Media Player Classic) will contiue coming out of the computer speakers, or whatever the previous default was. Ive only had the ASUS Bluetooth adapter, and havent been able to try another adapter, but I have used different bluetooth Headsets/Headphones, and they all react the same. The program also exhibited on Windows 7, so I doubt its OS specific.
Is there any way to fix this, because this is absolutely annoying.

Answer:Problem: Have to restart programs when connecting bluetooth Headphone.

Did you ever find an answer? I just found this post and I'm having the exact issue. And agreed; very annoying.

Edit: Just found this page on reddit. It works! Swich the audio playback in iTunes to Direct Sound rather than Windows Audio.

The sound quality on paired headphones is terrible. There is a background, high pitched whine being transmitted that makes it unbearable to listen.
A wired pair of headphone works fine. The headphones work fine when paired with my Note 4 & Sony TV. A second pair of bluetooth headphones exhibits exactly the same problem, so it is 100% definitely the laptop that is the problem.

When I turn on the Bluetooth headset, I have to manually go into the Sound settings and change the "Default" to the Asus Adapter.
Though ZId love to know if there is a fix to this, it's easy enough to live with. The thing I cant stand though, is when I do switch any default device in the Sound settings, I also have to close all programs that were open when making the switch. Otherwise, the programs (like iTunes and Media Player Classic) will contiue coming out of the computer speakers, or whatever the previous default was. Ive only had the ASUS Bluetooth adapter, and havent been able to try another adapter, but I have used different bluetooth Headsets/Headphones, and they all react the same. The program also exhibited on Windows 7, so I doubt its OS specific.
Is there any way to fix this, because this is absolutely annoying.

Answer:Problem: Have to restart programs when connecting bluetooth Headphone.

Did you ever find an answer? I just found this post and I'm having the exact issue. And agreed; very annoying.

Edit: Just found this page on reddit. It works! Swich the audio playback in iTunes to Direct Sound rather than Windows Audio.

hi huys,
is there any solution for my concern.
my iball pulse BT4 bluetooth headphone is not working with dell vostro 1540

Answer:iball pulse bt4 bluetooth headphone not working with my vostro 1540

Have you tested other BT (bluetooth) devices on the Vostro 1540? What BT device is installed in the Vostro 1540? What operating system are you running? You should check with iball- Chat for support and setup of their product. Assuming you read through its User Manual for troubleshooting steps.

Hi Satellite users,

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones. The symptom of the problem was that the "MDR-XB50BS" device didn't appear in the list of available devices on the Windows Activity Centre "Connect" screen, nor in the Windows Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth and other devices -> Add a device screen. Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

X220 tablet (about 2.5 yrs old, out of warranty) was working completely fine last night; this morning, no sound is coming from the laptop, either through speakers or through headphones (audio jack).  I am, however, able to get sound through a bluetooth-connected speaker. I had hoped this was a software issue.  Tried uninstalling/installing all sound devices, updating BIOS, updating drivers, system restore to previous date, rebooting a million times, etc.  No joy. When I run the sound troubleshooter, it says that no speaker, headset, or headphone appears to be plugged in.  The sound icon has a little red circle/white X next to it.  When I try to plug in headphones, nothing happens -- does not seem to detect the event.  When I press the mute and volume buttons on the tablet, no response. Also, under Device Manager -> Sound, video and game controllers, it lists only "Bluetooth Hands-free Audio" and "Intel Display Audio".  I don't think either of these is the normal X220 audio driver, is it?  What else should be there?  I downloaded the Conexant Audio Software from Lenovo's site (this is what came up when I searched for audio drivers for the X220 tablet), and tried to install it, but halfway through, it said the install failed because it couldn't locate the device for the driver. This sounds like it's a hardware problem -- any way to verify?  Also, which piece of hardware exactly?  Is it the sound card ...

Answer:X220 tablet - sound suddenly stopped working from speakers and headphone (but not bluetooth)

If it doesn't appear in the device manager, it sounds to me like the sound chip (codec) or some support chip has died. I'm not sure how exact you want the answer to be. I think on that model, the codec is a Conexant 20672. If I am correct, the normal fix is to replace the motherboard. Many x220 machines are still under warranty. If yours is, now would be a good time to use it. You can check here:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-service/warranty-status/default.page?

I got a windows 8.1 laptop, and I've been used to a windows 7 one. One thing I noticed is that it doesn't seem able to switch between audio devices without being told to. Is there any way of getting the system to switch to headphones when they're plugged in, and back to speakers when they're removed?

Answer:sound doesn't auto switch from headphone to speker

The sound works the same in Windows 8 as it did in Windows 7. If its not switching there is problem.

Please fill in the "My System Specs". It helps us to try and help you.

Do the headphones work when plugged in, even though the speakers remain on? In some audio chips, such as RealTek there are options for how the speakers/headphones work. e.g. mute the speakers when a headset is plugged in or not mute the speakers.

Also, if you are using USB, its a whole new ball game, as USB does not use the PC's sound chip.

I finally got my phone to stay connected via bluetooth and of course I no longer have any hair to pull out.
now I am trying to import my contacts to the phone, which I gather can be done with a bluetooth connection via some sort of PIM that the bluetooth software recognizes. For the life of me I can't find any explicit reference to any particular PIM software that the Windows 8 bluetooth Properties dialog recognizes. Or, have I misunderstood the capabilities here? Do I have to buy and install Outlook?
I am unfortunately using Thunderbird as email & contact manager, but I've exported my contacts via .csv in the past so If I can find the appropriately compatible PIM for Win8 Bluetooth I think I can muddle through.

Any help would be ever so appreciated.

If there is a thread or other site that already deals with this, my apologies and could you point me in the right direction.

Answer:How do I get a PIM to show up in Bluetooth properties?

When I connected my iPhone to an HP laptop with 7 installed, it connected my phone via Bluetooth and all my contacts were right in there. All of my Audio output was sent to the laptop. It was kind of interesting, I was able to call someone from the Desktop and use the mike and speaker to talk.

I believe it saved all of my contact information too, I had to delete the device from the laptop to remove them. I was kind of alarmed at the massive amount of stuff that is on my phone that showed up.

I;ve connected my iPhone to a Macbook running Bootcamp Windows 7, but it was never as complete as I saw it on the HP. Maybe the support was not included in the bootcamp drivers. But on an OEM Windows 7 system, everything was there.

You have to go into Devices and Printers and pull up the properties of the phone. Of course I don't know what kind of phone you are connecting, but my iPhone was completely accessible (as a phone and Audio Device) in that system. It makes me want to get some kind of Bluetooth card for mu Main PC so I can connect my Phone up while I am working and that way I can hold conversations right from my workstation.

By PIM I take it you mean Personal Information Manager, all of your contacts and numbers and email addresses? The Contacts should all be there in the device Property Sheet, just look around.

Basically what I am saying here, is that an iPhone when connected to a Windows Computer via Bluetooth, creates it's own interface, you don't need any extra software ... Read more

There is not! - I cannot do what i need to do (COM Ports) with the Tosh software. I go into the laptop's main help, and type bluetooth. It says something to do with this "Bluetooth Devices" thing, but this time it has a link to it, so i click the link... and nothing... wait for a while... nothing happenes.

I need to get to this before i can set up Activesync.

Before anyone asks, the bluetooth switch on the laptop is set to on.

If you have any ideas, please help me, as this is a 1100 laptop, and i can't do a basic thing, one of the reasons i bought it was because it had bluetooth.

Thanks.

I've tried about every solution imaginable to this, found in tons of threads. I have HP Bluetooth Module in Device Manager, and my headset shows up as a Bluetooth Peripheral Device there too. I have two Bluetooth instances in the taskbar, I have all the settings on for recognizing BT devices and my headset is in Devices and Printers. The other BT thing in the taskbar is "Bluetooth on MYPC" and only has two rightclick options, "Start the Bluetooth Device" and "Bluetooth Device Not Found." If you try to start BT this way it just whines about "Bluetooth Device not found." Even though it shows up in Device Manager. Yes, I've tried it with the headset on, in pairing mode too. At one point I even had an entry for the HP Bluetooth Module in Devices and Printers.

None of this has made a jot of difference - I've never seen the headset in the Playback Devices, not once. Do you only get that when you spend over $100 or something? This is really irritating. This is an HP HPE h8-1220 desktop with a clean install of Win 7 x64 Home Premium, with every update installed. I've used a couple of driver scanners to improve things - no change. Went to HP's website and installed all kinds of junk - no change.

Perhaps your BlueTooth system dont have a2dp protocol (stack), you need this for music transfer bluetooth to wireless speaker. Check your brand of BT chip, and download drivers for your chip. PS Ms Win7 64 do not have the a2dp protocol, you must find by other vendor.

Hello everyone, this is my first post here so pm me if you have questions because I will blow through this quickly: Have you installed/upgraded to win 10? do you have no bluetooth driver or even the option to get it? Well I took 2-3 hours to figure it out so you don't have to! First make sure that bluetooth is enabled in your bios (F1 at startup) the setting is tucked away in there, mine was diabled for some reason. Second install the "universal" win 10 DRIVER from Intel which is NOT ON THE SUPPORT SITE: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25172/eng/WP-BT_17.1.1529.1613_t64.exe Third: Download and install this overlay key crap that lenovo has on thier support site called on screen display (for win 10) can't find it, the site had crashed for me. Fourth: restart computer Fif: launch C:\DRIVERS\HOTKEY\OSD\F5\TpFnF5.exe and use the gui to enable bluetooth A bluetooth icon should pop on your home bar tool tray, led should also come on indicating it is active, and also under devices in windows 10 you should be able to toggle it on and pair devices (you can also get there by double clicking the icon)  thank me now or later, but lenovo's support for windows 10 compliantcy is disgusting. I love my T510 and only this once has let me down. bad lenovo, BAD!

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T510 Windows 10 bluetooth not show...

I'll thank you now. I had them same issue as you on my T510 and figured there's got to be a driver out there somewhere. Couldn't find anything in Lenovo support and no reference to any testing or pending support for T510 with windows 10. Your solution worked. I checked BIOS and found it was enabled for bluetooth. All I did after that was step 2 in your post and got the driver. At that point I thought I'd just give it a go and see what happens. Went to the TpFnF5.exe (on my computer it was in  C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\HOTKEY\OSD\F5\TpFnF5.exe) launched it, turned on the bluetooth radio and was back in business. Connected to a bluetooth boombox and it worked no problem.  I put a shortcut to that file in my task bar so I don't need to screw around with getting the F5 hotkey going. Upgraded to windows 10 5 days ago. So far everything I normally use on the T510 is working properly. Unless the thing blows up tomorrow, I don't know why Lenovo so far hasn't supported it for win 10. Thanks again.

Hello all,

I'm working on a machine that doesn't start up. It just beeps, three times, and restarts repeatedly but doesn't show anything on screen. I opened the case and found that the model of mobo is "msi h61m-e23 (b3)". The installed operating system in 7 but it even doesn't show the mobo's details screen.
Some time ago, I changed the slot of the RAM, that is, I put the RAM into another slot of the mobo. The problem solved at the time, but after these few days this problem appeared again. If the RAM is faulty, so changing the slot should not solve the issue, not?

Now I changed the slot of the RAM again. computer started without any beeps, but it doesn't show anything . I checked the VGA to monitor cable but it seems to be fine.

There are only two slots for RAM! I tested the two, but in neither, the PC shows something.
I put out the RAM, the CPU fan is running and the PC is turned on and works without any beep and again without any display.

Is the RAM faulty?

Answer:PC doesn't show anything

Very likely.
You can check to see if there is dust or hair in the slots or if there is damage or corrosion on the RAM stick.
But if the RAM is not working you will get no video.

I'm working on a machine that doesn't start up. It just beeps, three times, and restarts repeatedly but doesn't show anything on screen. I opened the case and found that the model of mobo is "msi h61m-e23 (b3)". The installed operating system in 7 but it even doesn't show the mobo's details screen.
Some time ago, I changed the slot of the RAM, that is, I put the RAM into another slot of the mobo. The problem solved at the time, but after these few days this problem appeared again. If the RAM is faulty, so changing the slot should not solve the issue, not?

Now I changed the slot of the RAM. computer started without any beeps, but it doesn't show anything . I checked the VGA to monitor cable but it seems to be fine.

There are only two slots for RAM! I tested the two, but in neither, the PC shows something.
I put out the RAM, the CPU fan is running and the PC is turned on and works without any beep and again without any display.

Is the RAM faulty?
 

Answer:PC doesn't show anything

When you take out all the RAM, the motherboard should give continuous beeps. If it doesn't, the motherboard is bad...

Question: HD doesn't show up

Hello everyone,

I just installed W7 and everything so far seems to be working fine but for some reason I can't access my second HD. I have my main; a 250gb SATA divided into 2 partitions, 1 for Vista and the other for Windows 7. The second drive is a 160gb ATA (PATA) drive and it doesn't even show up at all in My Computer. Anyone have any suggestions? When I boot into Vista it shows up, but not under W7. I really need to have access to it since it's where I store all my program installation files and music.

Thanks in advance

hi,

my laptop has windows 7 home premium acer 64bit os,model 8950g.

I am having trouble trying to add my bluetooth keyboard:
The bluetooth software is showing,and it finds the keyboard on its own.

But the bluetooth pairing with list of discovered devices does not show anywhere,and if i try to use the "add a device" from printers and devices",it will not find the keyboard.

The laptop is "discoverable" by devices,its just that the pairing and list of devices does not show anywhere!

On win8.1 i need to go to the win8.1 start to find the pairing and list of devices,but there is not that option in wi8.1!

thanks

I recently connected my Bluetooth speaker to my netbook and when i go to my audio properties, its not there. what to do?

Answer:Paired bluetooth speaker does not show as audio device windows XP

Name of speaker would be helpful so we can look for possibile drivers.

Try looking in device manager under;



And have a look and see if there are any errors next to the device, look at attached document for errors.

Have a look in "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties;

Hello, I have an IdeaPad V750 and the Bluetooth option won't show sometimes in the Lenovo Wireless Device Settings. Sometimes I'm able to see it, activate it and use it, but some other times when I turn my computer on is like the Bluetooth device is not installed. It's like I turn the computer on and the Bluetooth is there, then when I turn it off and on again the device is not there,it looks to be random. Anyone have this problem? How can I fix it? Any recommendations? Thanks!

Answer:Bluetooth won't show in Lenovo Wireless Device Settings - V750

hi mnmontero,
 
thanks for posting and welcome to the community. Wireless devices can be a frustrating issue, but however there something I need to clearify with you. You mentioned that you have the IdeaPad v750. I checked our database and however we couldn't locate the Model you mentioned. This is probably a typo error but if you could just reconfirm the model that would be great as this would narrow down on the type of machine you are using. 
 
Do let us know and we'll see how we can assist further with your issue,
 
regards

I just rearranged my pictures from "Whatsapp" folder into different album using my computer but when I opened up the Photos section in my Lumia 920, the pictures doesn't show up and some folder is repeated twice. How do I fix this ? Thanks

Answer:Pictures doesn't show up

First things first, do not delete pictures or folders that you think you have double in your phone.
Here is what i would do.
Copy the content of your rearranged folders to your pc and see what's happened in there.
If everything seems alright in your pc (check, check and double-check) throw away the folders in your phone, reboot the device and copy the folders back to your phone.

When I enter in Computer nothing is shown. The adress bar is loading but nothing happens,there is a search icon on every left item (favorites,libraries,homegroup,computer) and the cursor changes to please wait.
If i type for example c: in the adress bar it takes me there but it looks very weird. Some folders don't even have an icon, it's just a blank space and the rest look default even though i had custom icons for some of them.
Another strange think is that the computer sometimes freezes for 1-2 second without explications and browsing the folders is just awkard, it's sometimes fast and sometimes very slow.
If i restart the computer it works for a while but then it starts acting like above.
Please help

Answer:Computer doesn't show anything

To be able to have any insight into the problems, It is necessary to know a bit more...when you installed to system, did you do a clean install? Sometimes, when an update install has been done, it will cause problems later. When did these problems appear...did it correlate with any particular change or update that was made? If so, going back to a restore point just prior to when this started happening might help.
