Why doesn't my Windows 10 Bluetooth headphone Hands-Free Profile connect!

Question: Why doesn't my Windows 10 Bluetooth headphone Hands-Free Profile connect!

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?

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.)

I have just purchased a HP iPAQ Handsfree Headset and a BElkin Bluetooth USB Adapter. It does not work

I followed the Install inst for the Blue Tooth adapter and found it works OK it also picks up the Headset when I Pair them together. My Blue tooth device manager states that the Adapter is working properly and was auto detected by windows XP. However I am trying to run Dragon Dictate and it cannot pick up the mic. So I tried to record a quick file with windows sound recorder and it did not work at all. Any thoughts.
 

Answer:Bluetooth Hands-free headset

Well, if the mic is not muted, I might suspect a bad unit.

Hello,I have a W530 (2438.2HU) and lately I noticed that the Bluetooth Hands-free Audio driver is disabled. The Device Manageer section for this driver states that "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)" I went to the Lenovo driver download site; but couldn't figure out which driver to download. Could someone, please, tell me exactly which driver I have to download to fix this issue? Thanks in advance.Regards,bostjanv

I have a T60 running Windows XP SP2 wih all patches and BT driver 5.5.0.4300. I want to configure the Cisco IP Communicator 2.1.2.0 to use a BT headset. I have both a Motorola MotoRokr SD-9 and a Jabra BT2040 headsets. The headsets pair and connect. However, none of the Bluetooth device types show up in the IP phone headset choices; only the SoundMAX HD Audio.When the SD-9 is paired and connected, I can get it to play music through the headset because it insists on making it an "audio gateway". I can't get the Jabra to do anything. I don't know if it is installation order, activation order, or a setting I can't find. Any suggestions? 

Answer:Bluetooth Hands- free Audio not a choice for Cisco IP Phone

As far as I know the Cisco IPC will only accepct sound cards for input output. If you go into the sounds control in control pannel is the BT device listed their as a sound card?

The hands-free feature is not working on the Lenovo Ideapad U310 with the Microsoft Food & Wine application.  I have performed all the troubleshooting steps with Microsoft as well as an outside consultant.  For some reason, the application is not allowed to grab the built-in camera to allow hands-free swiping of pages. Has anyone else experienced this problem.  Possible solutions? Moderator Note; subject edited.

Answer:Ideapad U310 Hands Free Operation Windows 8.1

hi PJsinSJ,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Were you able to use the Feature before or with some other application?
I tried checking the U310 hands free feature like Motion control in yoga, but I can't find any references.
 
I don't think this feature is is available in U310 on default.

Hi I'm trying to get the hands free mode working in the food app on windows 8.1 It was working at some point but I removed permissions across the board and even disabled my webcam (in a mild fit of paranoia). Anyway I've re-enabled the webcam And the camera app works perfectly fine,I opened the food app and allowed it permission to access the camera and it still won't pick up the camera in handsfree mode. All that happens is that the GUI changes but the camera doesn't switch on (judging by the light) and motion doesn't work. Oh and it says hands free mode is off. What's up? How can it enter the GUI and not be in hands free mode?

Thanks

T61, Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse.In spite of everything I've done, I don't get any response on the machine to the movement of the mouse.I've turned on the Bluetooth broadcast (I can see the little light turned on next to the little light for wifi which is also turned on).At some point, something happened because I got the usual popups about new hardware found but this was almost certainly the activation of Bluetooth.There is a button on the bottom of the mouse to turn it on. I turned it on. There is another button on the bottom of the mouse to make the mouse discoverable. I pressed it (and, as expected, the light on the top of the mouse started flashing).If I go in to Control Panel and select Bluetooth devices, I get the popup and in the tab "Dianostics", it says it's active and working properly.Suggestions and guidance much appreciated. Thanks.

Question: hands free :)

hi

I use msn messanger to talk long distance, but is killing me that I have to sit in front of the computer to talk, and I can't move freely around the house, like I do with my handset portable phone.

Can some one tell me a way I can get around with this so I could walk around the house and do stuff as I talk with others throught my computer.

thanks

Alex
 

Answer:hands free :)

I never used MSN, but im assuming you can transmit voice over it. The only logical thing that comes to mind is some kind of wireless mic and headphone. Where you could put the base by the computer and walk around with the wireless headset.

I haven't used one that had the port as a combined unit but I would assume you would need a headphone set with mic that has combined wiring, such as sets used for cell phones and such. You can also purchase an adapter that will split the port into 2 ports for mic and headphones.
Hope that gives you an idea

I recently bought a Nokia Lumia 530, and I had purchased a headset with it. I used it for one day successfully, but it hasn't worked since. Thinking it was just the headphones, I got another set, but they don't work on my phone either. I made sure they were in working condition. Why can't my phone recognize these headphones?

Answer:Why won't hands-free headphones work on my Nokia Lumia 530?

It worked once... It should stay working...
Try a Soft Reset. Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about ten seconds). This will clear out system memory. Then delete whatever pairing you had under Bluetooth and Soft Reset again.
Make a new Pairing.

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.

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..."

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.

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!!!

I haven't tried using a Bluetooth headset with Windows, but check: 1.  Right-click on the sound tray icon, select Playback devices.  Does it show a 2nd bluetooth headset device in addition to Speakers?  If so, left-click on it and try the "Set Default" dropown menu on the bottom to make it the Default device (or some other option that works better). 2.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933144 3.  http://www.computing.net/answers/hardware/making-bluetooth-headset-default-audio-device/87178.html

I've recently bought a Bluetooth USB Dongle for my Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop so my wireless headphone could connect to it. The dongle connected and installed fine but when I pressed "Add a device", it saw it as a keyboard and when it tried to install the driver for it, it gave me a "No driver found" for Bluetooth Peripheral Device. It is a Ciberspeed Sports Bluetooth Headphone and it has worked for my iPod so I'm not sure if that's the issue. I appreciate any help.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW290J laptop with built in bluetooth (Broadcom Widcomm, Alps, something like that, some drivers had the former name, others the last one). I use Windows 7 x64 Professional and it seems that the bluetooth doesn't work. After the fresh install (few months ago) it worked. Meanwhile, I didn't use it because I didn't need it. But today I tried to use it but it can't find my device (mobile phone). I tried with many device, but it seems that the bluetooth doesn't scan for devices. I can't also see it from other device (my phone doesn't see it). I tried three driver versions but none of them does anything more than what I have described above. The install does all good, but after that, nothing work. I see the BT icon in tray, near the volume icon, but if I click on it, it appears an empty page scanning for new device forever. Neither adding a device, nor opening the settings worked. The "Allow new device to connect" is blurred gray, so I can't click it. If I uninstall the driver, Windows uses its own driver, but this does also not work.
I think it's not a driver problem, but a Windows one, since it worked some time ago. I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I have a USB Bluetooth Dongle. I use this with XP sp3 that I keep fully updated. I did an update today, and following this my bluetooth dongle does not work.

I have used the windows update site to look at my update history and it tells me that one of my udates was this:

iAnywhere - Other hardware - ISSC (EDR) Bluetooth USB Adapter

I think that if i remove this and try again my bluetooth dongle should work.

edit: I should add that I am unable to find this program to remove it - which is why I am posting.

I have already tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver and it doesn't seem to do any good.

Does anyone have any ideas please?

Hello, Since I have installed WIN 8, Bluetooth doesn't run. Except Keyboard and mouse. Can I re-install Bluetooth driver's WIN 7 with WIN 8 ? Or anyone can give me any suggestion   regards John (In french Jean) 

Answer:Ideacentre A320 and Windows 8 - Bluetooth doesn't run

hi JeanLev,
 
Upon checking the parts, you have the BCM92046 bluetooth module. If you see the bluetooth module on the device manager but can't pair / send / receive files from devices, you probably don't have the bluetooth stack installed.
 
You can try to install the Windows 7 drivers as it also include the bluetooth stack software (link below):
 
Broadcom Bluetooth Driver
Windows 7 64bit / Windows 7 32bitID3BTH25WW5.exe156 MB
 
if it gives you an error, try to install this driver directly from Broadcom.
 
 
Let me know your findings
 
Cheers

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.

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.
Does anybody know how the fix this please?

Also, when I try to detect my computer with my mobile phone, itīs not detected.

The Bluetooth device seems fine as it already detected your keyboard and mouse. However, your phone seems not supported with the current Bluetooth device and you might need to take another look.

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

I have inbuilt bluetooth in my laptop (running win7 ultimate) with HP/widcomm drivers installed. I have Sony HBH-DS980 A2DP capable stereo bluetooth headset. I want to use it with my laptop as stereo headphones (listening music) + internet telephony headset (voice chats, skype etc). First of all it was pain to connect the this headphones with laptop. It took me many many many tries to pair this correctly. Now that its connected, I cant get it to make a connection between laptop and headphones. I tried pressing the button on headphone to initiate a connection, and also tried to make connection by pressing the connect button in headset's bluetooth control window with no results. However it does connect once in a while (I would say less than 10% of the times). The same setup used to work fine when I had vista. What is wrong with Windows 7? I tried going back to a previous version of drivers that HP released before current ones, and even tried formatting/reinstalling windows 7, but same result. I checked headset's properties; under services I tried selecting/deselecting Audio Sink, Handsfree telephony, Headset, Remote Control, Remotely Controllable Device, but same result. I Any ideas or tips? I am just so frustrated I cant think of anything else to try..

Answer:Cant connect bluetooth headset to Windows 7 laptop..

But Im using a Dell D630 Laptop running Windows 7 Enterprise with the Dell 355 Bt adapter.

I've also had trouble getting it to connect. I used to have to force it to connect in XP. So I tried everything I can think of to force it in Win7 through the bluetooth settings dialog, and using the headset itself. Randomly it would work.

Eventually I found that if the headset is turned off, the computer rebooted, and the headset turned on, they just connect automatically without me doing anything. Which was great till something (like my cellphone) connected to the headset and then I couldn't get the headset to reconnect otthe laptop with out rebooting. Yuck!

Anyway this rebooting thing gave me an idea... What I do now, is right click on the bluetooth icon in the tray and turn off the bluetooth device in the computer. Then I power off the headset. Then I re-enable the bluetooth in the same menu. Lastly I power on the headset, and it pretty much works all the time - Though I had one time when it connected but I had no sound.

I love this headset with Win7 much better than with XP, the play pause, track forward/back even control WinAMP! It's cool!

Connecting used to be such a pain, I used to just load my music on my phone and listen from there. but now I can get my music, games, web audio etc. all ,mixed through the same headset. And it still switches to my phone when calls come in and returns to the computer when they're done. It's great!
