X230 Cannot connect bluetooth device

Q: X230 Cannot connect bluetooth device

I have a Lenovo X230 2324-3XU, and I cannot pair my bluetooth headphones to the computer. I can turn on the bluetooth with the Fn+F5 function, but the bluetooth icon doesn't appear in my icon tray, and I can't use the Add Device to discover the headset. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

welcome to the community. if you have system update installed, has it offered you any updates lately?if you don't have system update installed, you can find it in the x230 driver matrix here:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT073834the specific link to the win7 32/64bit version is:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS012808you should also compare su to the matrix as su can sometimes lag behind the matrix in showing the most recent driver versions. hth.

Hello,

I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Surface Pro 3.  I'm able to turn on Bluetooth and connect to some bluetooth devices.  I also have three "Bluetooth Smart", or BLE, devices.  I believe this stands for Bluetooth Low Energy.  Windows
8.1 is supposed to support it.  Typical BLE devices are sports accessories like heart rate monitors and bike speedometers.  My device manager shows that I have the Microsoft Bluetooth LE Enumerator driver and LE Generic Attribute Service installed
correctly.

When I try to connect to two of my BLE devices, I get a message that says, "That didn't work.  Try again and make sure your heart rate monitor is still discoverable.
The closest I've found to troubleshooting is this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020785

I downloaded the hotfix but when I try to install it, it doesn't install and says that the fix does not apply to my computer.  I'm not sure this is my problem anyways, because the symptom "After you confirm the error message, all discoverable Bluetooth
devices under new Windows UI disappear." does not happen with me. I just get the error message with no ability to pair the device.

I'm wondering if anyone else has any ideas, solutions or experience with this problem.

Hi,

The initial pairing work they both identify each other and simultaneously send a confirmation passkey (6 digits) and I just press the OK button on both devices , mobile and PC (is it supposed to be that way ?).
After that the connection is initiated for a few seconds and then it's lost and the device appears as disconnected

Hello!

I have searched through Bluetooth articles and couldn't find any relevant answers. I have a HMDX Jam bluetooth speaker and cannot connect it to my Sony Vaio W7 HP (2012) laptop via Bluetooth, although it connects with the line-in cable no prob (screenshot 1).

The speaker connected instantly to my Android tablet, so I know the speaker is functioning correctly.

The problem seems to be in 'pairing'. When I connected the speaker to my Asus tablet, it asked for the pairing code, which I entered in, and the combo were up and running.

When I attempt to connect the speaker to my laptop, it is recognized but I am not asked for the 'pairing code'. I also see that when I right-click on the bluetooth icon in the taskbar, that 'Allow a Device to Connect' is greyed out (screenshot 2). I presume that is why the pairing code dialogue box is not opening. As you can see from the screenshot, I have ticked the 'Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer' tick-box.

When I double-click on the speaker icon in Devices, I get the message that the operation failed to initialize (screenshot 3).

Also, when I took screenshot 1, I firstly tried to send it via bluetooth from my phone to the laptop, it failed. The devices are 'paired but not connected' and after three attempts I gave up and got the cable out.

I have attempted to put as much relevant info here as I can think of. I would also like to add that I have virus troubles at the momernt and am in the process of posting... Read more

A:Bluetooth speakers: 'Allow a Device to Connect' greyed out

Hi again,

Well its been a couple of days since I posted the above. In the mean time I continued to search for help elsewhere, and in fact have been able to resolve the issue.

It turns out W7 is not very well adapted to Bluetooth. I found a few other similar posts, reading through the replies the concensus seemed to be that W7 is good for keyboards and mice but not much more. As I say I'm only going on what I've read as replies to similar problems.

The solution appears to be to download Bluetooth driver software from the following link, Bluetooth Software Download | Broadcom

I tried this and Bingo, works straight away. Have to say that it's not ideal, still haven't got the devices to pair, so it's a manual connection each time. But at least I can now use the speaker as intended. Edit: I was wrong, after a reboot I switched on Bluetooth and the speakers connected immediately. So I'm very happy!

Interestingly, on the Sony own Youtube video on how to connect your Bluetooth device to a Vaio laptop, the 'Allow a Device to Connect' command (when you right-click the Bluetooth icon in system tray) was greyed out as well, so it appears its not a settings issue as I suspected.

I think the real solution it to get in touch with Sony support and/ or HMDX Jam, which I'll do in the near future. At the moment I'm happy to have the speaker play via Bluetooth so I can get on with more pressing issues.

Thx, Chig

I spent many hours trying to figure out how to connect my two Windows 7 64-bit PCs to my Bluetooth stereo audio device (the Motorola S705) and so I thought I'd post my solution in case it helps anyone else.

SYMPTOMS:
A Bluetooth-capable Windows 7 PC can pair, but can?t connect, to a stereo audio device (like the Motorola S705 SoundPilot) via Bluetooth. The PC and the audio device may pair, but then Windows 7 provides the following error messages: ?Device driver software was not successfully installed. Bluetooth Peripheral Device. No driver found.?

It may be worth noting that I had no problem connecting my Bluetooth audio device to my cell phone or Windows XP PC. And the Windows 7 PC was able to connect to other Bluetooth devices, such as mice or keyboards.

CAUSE:
Even though the Windows 7 PC may have a working Bluetooth driver that connects to some Bluetooth devices (like mice or keyboards), the Windows 7 PC does not have the necessary A2DP & AVRCP (audio-capable) Bluetooth software & drivers installed. This software deficiency may occur, especially if the PC has been upgraded from an earlier version of Windows or the PC maker has simply not provided the latest driver update.

SOLUTION:
If the PC has an add-on Bluetooth adapter/dongle, download & install the latest driver directly from the Bluetooth dongle maker?s website, if possible.

If the PC has Bluetooth built-in, download & install the latest Bluetooth driver directly from the PC manufacturer,... Read more

Sony DR-BT101 Headphones - (Microsoft says they're compatible)

PROBLEM:
All BT devices successfully installed and appear to be working. I can even find the A2DP device if I show all hidden devices in Device Manager. The headset pairs with no problems, Remote, Headset, Handsfree Telephony, and Audio Sink Services are available under device properties. However, non of the headphone services are available under "Playback Devices" or "Recording Devices".

When I right-click on the Bluetooth system tray icon and select "Open Settings" then click on the "Audio" tab I can see all of the active services from my headset. All services show "disconnected" below them. When I right-click on a service (with the headphones on and in connectible mode - steady flashing blue) I can select "Connect" (the only place in Win7 I've found the connect function). When I try to connect, it shows "Connecting" for a minute or two then goes back to "Disconnected". The headset never appears to respond.

I paired Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse to my Windows 7 Professional x64 HP ZBook 14 which is connected to my company's corporate domain. Everything worked beautifully until they had to re-image my PC to resolve a disk encryption issue. That issue is resolved, but I have had bad luck getting my keyboard and mouse to pair and remain connected ever since. However, that's not even the problem now. After troubleshooting my Bluetooth issues by installing different driver versions, pairing and un-pairing my keyboard and mouse, changing settings in Bluetooth Support Service and more, I now have two Bluetooth Peripheral devices that always appear in Device Manager. I believe these are remnants of previously paired devices, but I can not get rid of them no matter what I try. These devices do not show up in Devices and Printers, they become Bluetooth Low Energy HID Devices when I install the computer manufacturer's drivers... As I typed this I thought of installing the Intel Bluetooth drivers I had previously installed to see what would happen... Ok that made things worse. Now there are three random Bluetooth Low Energy HID Devices and none of them are actual devices that are paired to the PC. And pairing the devices does not help.

The Bluetooth settings page says "Bluetooth is turned off" and there are no options on the settings page or the system tray to turn Bluetooth on.

Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.

uninstalling the device and rebooting
installing the latest updated chipset drivers from the dell website
windows updates

Hi all,

I have a Samsung series 7 laptop with 2 usb3 ports and 2 usb 2.0 ports. On the device manager i can see the installed driver Intel usb 3.0 root hub and intel usb 3.0 extensive host controller.

I also have purchased a Samsung 64GB sdxc card SDXC UHS (I), that according to manufacturer it can reach speeds "Transfer Speed: Up to 80 MB/s Read and up to 40 MB/s Write". I have enclosed this in a USPEED USB3 card reader, so that I use this as a 64Gb usb3 flash drive.

My problem is that everytime I connet this flash drive to my laptop's usb 3 ports, I get the message "This device can perform faster if you connect it to a superspeed usb 3 port" (!!) so I dont get it! What is wrong??

Actual writing speeds, when i copy large files (eg movie) this is done at 28 - 30 MB/s while speeds when copying many small files (folder with many smaller images) is done at 10 - 11.5 Mb/s.

Hi Dionisis , I have a couple of USB 3.0 flash sticks that give me the same message even though I have them in a USB 3.0 port.
In your case it may be due to the fact that an SDXC card isn't really a USB device, I'm not sure on this. someone else may have a better explanation.

You can run comparisons using the same files and copying in the 2.0 and the 3.0 ports to see any difference.

Running Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1.

Problem:

I am hearing the Device Connect, Device Disconnect, and Failed to Connect sounds at random times, sometimes 2 minutes to 10 hours apart. No error window pops up when this event occurs, nor do any event logs record anything out of the usual when these events occur. It does not appear to be connected to any specific program or application that I run.

I have scanned my computer with multiple virus scans and malware scans. I have observed firewall connectivity and it appears that whatever is causing it is not trying to connect to the internet. I have full confidence that it is not an infection. I have also reinstalled the OS and applied the updates, but the problem is still there. I have done a driver check on all the hardware and all drivers seem to be in order.

To me, this is truly a phantom problem that has driven me to wits end. I apologize if the information seems lacking, but to be honest it's pretty much all I konw about this problem. I would be greatful for any comments or suggestions.

A:Device Connect/Disconnect/Failed to Connect sounds

What do you have connected to your USB ports?
What are the settings in your Control Panel to control the activity of the USB ports (in particular, any settings that sleep/disable that device when it's not being used).

The easiest thing to do is to disconnect all your USB devices and only connect them when using them. Also, follow the Safely Eject Hardware protocol when removing them from the computer.

Hi all!

I had a bluetooth device on my laptop. On vista it worked properly. I just installed Windows 7 and i wanted to use my Bluetooth to connect to my phone. But sadly, it didn't work. So i tried to install drivers, but i can't find the device at all in devicemanager. Do you have any sugestions what to do? I don't remember the name of the device, so i can't search online for drivers..

So what drivers did you try to install, and is the bluetooth service running in services?

I have an X230 i5 processor with a 1 TB SSD and I recently picked up a X230 with a i7 processor and a much smaller hard disk.  Can I just swap my big SSD into the new X230 (moving that version of Windows 7 Pro) and then install the smaller hard disk (with its version of Windows 7 Pro) into the i5 machine. (Will be swapping the memory so the i7 has the 16 GB and the i5 has 8 GB).  I know that if they were completely different computers this would not work, but since both are X230 will it work?  I'd rather not have to restall all the programs if I can avoid it!

So a few months ago I replaced my wireless card and started having problems with my bluetooth drivers randomly just shutting off and not working.a I tried back in January to get help on the forums for the problem but I didn't really get any answers. This is my new wireless card. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/dual-band-wireless-ac-7260-bluetooth.html At least once a day I get "Code 10" Device power failure. The only way to correct this is to either use the intel driver tool to repair the driver or restart my computer. There is also random time intervals between it happening. It could be twice in an hour or once in a period of 8 hours.  A fix that I tried that didn't help was I did a repair install of windows because I thought when I swapped out the cards maybe something got corrupted but that has not helped in the slightest.
