Passcode of device when connecting via Bluetooth,

I wanted to connect my laptop (sony with windows 8) with tablet GPS (lieca CS25with windows7) but the system requires the passcode (attached).


I couldn?t figure out how to find out the Passcode of the GPS (lieca CS25with windows7)? Can this be found by windows 7?

Thank you

Best

A:Passcode of device when connecting via Bluetooth,

If you read the link it mentions:Double click the device you want to connect to and wait while a connection is established. You will be presented with a passcode that you must either verify as being the same on the other device (most likely if you are connecting to another computer), or enter the code on the device you are connecting to (most likely in case you are connecting to a phone).

The directions look easy enough but I personally haven't had a chance to work with Bluetooth so I can't test this out myself.

I have a Belkin USB Bluetooth adapter that uses the Broadcom's WIDCOMM manager, and I've installed it in Windows 7. I have bluetooth a device with has no visual output nor alphanumeric input, so I've added it with no pairing.

I have it connected to COM3, but when I try to send/receive information I get a warning that a bluetooth device is trying to connect, and asks me for a pairing key

How can I really have the device connect to a serial port, without having to pair it every time I want to transmit data?

I couldn't figure out which sub forum to put this in so I just picked the one that is for my PC's OS. What I'm wondering is if it's possible to connect my PC's wireless adapter to a Bluetooth device, such as a speaker, and use it to play the computers audio through. I recently had my speakers stop working and had to throw them away. Since then I've been using ear buds to hear but I'd really like to have a speaker. So I have this Bluetooth speaker but my computer doesn't have a Bluetooth adapter. So I'm wondering if it's possible to use my wireless adapter instead. Probably a dumb question, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

Hello! I recently bought a Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse. It's pretty good so far, but I've been annoyed by the fact that it's Bluetooth. This might make it handy when connecting to a laptop but that also means that I have to pair the device again every time I use it in another computer.

I am looking for a way to connect the mouse without going to settings then unpairing and pairing again the device. Could all that be done by a shortcut in the desktop (so I could assign it to one of my keyboard's macros)? Or just a faster way to connect again (through some type of utility perhaps).

Android is a good example of this. I put the mouse in pairing mode and the click on the mouse in the Bluetooth settings. No unpairing and pairing again. Really fast as well.

Thanks in advance!

I went and bought a vista compatible USB bluetooth (bluesoleil), I also have a Nokia Mobile phone, and I needed to get a pic from my phone to my PC.

So I reinstalled Nokia PC Suite, updated it to the latest version. Plugged in my USB bluetooth, the drivers for the bluetooth were found.

But I kept getting error messages, please see attached zipped file of screen dumps and jpg's.

I managed to successfully copy the file from my mobile to my PC, but these error messages have me stumped.

Any ideas?

I have similar problem of non-connectivity thru BT on my HP Probook. The laptop came with built-in Bluetooth. It connects to my Nokia E-72 thru the Windows BT Manager. But when i try to connect thru PC Suite, it does not. The PC Suite works fine with E-72 when i connect thru USB cable. Same was the story with Ovi Suite.

Connectivity of PC Suite was a convenience on Windows XP (my older laptop).

If anyone's got a solution, please let me know.

I'm trying to upgrade Win7 to Win8. The compatibility checker flagged the Atheros BT Suite as follows: "Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 8."

I removed it using the program uninstaller. It appeared to finish cleanly and prompted to reboot. Then, Win8 says it's still installed and has to be removed manually.

Yup, the uninstaller left behind its program files, driver and numerous registry entries.

So, how do I manually remove the bluetooth suite?

A:Atheros BlueTooth Suite Won't Uninstall

Safe mode, regedit, manually search for everything Atheros related- you'll probably have to 'Take possession' of some of the keys, and you might run into the dreaded 'Trusted Installer' block.. hit the web for instructions to disable/modify that one. I had to do it just to clear out some extra cursor fluff I didn't want.

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. If I could, I would just delete the registry keys but I can't (remember, corporate domain PC). Any help from you brilliant people would be great. Thank you!

I was just working happily when my Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse just suddenly stopped working.
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.
The Device Manager now has "Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed" where it did not before.
Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.
I've tried:
uninstalling the device and rebooting
installing the latest updated chipset drivers from the dell website
windows updates
pretty much all of the advice here: http ://troubleshooter.xyz/wiki/fix-usb-device-not-recognized-device-descriptor-request-failed

So in desperation I just went into BIOS settings to see if there are any BT settings that may have become disabled. I didn't see any, and I didn't change any other settings.
After rebooting, BT and my mouse is now working again.
Something seems to be really flaky here, but hopefully this will help others with the same issue.

Hi, all.
I have a desktop and a Compaq laptop both using Windows XP Pro SP3. I would like to connect them both using Bluetooth so I can transfer files between them. I don't care about sharing the internet connection. I hoped to buy an Ethernet crossover cable but I couldn't find any, and I've been using a USB stick to very, very slowly transfer files across.
I turned discovery on on both the PCs and used both to try and find the other to "add a device", and they do; and also turned "allow Bluetooth devices to connect" on, as well, but they are unable to connect for whatever reason. I tried using a custom key and letting it choose one for me but neither worked. As clever as Microsoft is it doesn't tell me what the actual problem is. All it says is there isn't any more information about it. I also don't want to not use a passkey.
Again I don't need to share the internet connection, merely transfer files between them. I also tried with a small test file and it saw the other PC but then chose to fail. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi, I recently got this new WLAN Bluetooth Combo Adapter so that I could have the option to use bluetooth devices with my laptop. I'd connect my Sony MDR-XB950BT bluetooth headset and use it to talk to friends on Skype. When I look in my sound devices, there are normally two devices my headset connects with: "Headphones" and "Headset". The headset option is what lets me use my mic. However, now "Headset" displays as "Disconnected" and right-clicking then pressing "Connect" doesn't help. When I unpair then re-pair the device, it takes forever to download it's drivers, then I see that there is no "Headset" option in my sound devices at all! It reappears upon restart, but again as "Disconnected". Also, now when I connect my headphones, the "Headphones" option also displays as "Disconnected", but unlike the "Headset" option I am able to right-click and press connect and it will then connect. All my drivers are up-to-date and when searching for my new WLAN Bluetooth adapter I was told by an HP expert (who was a great help by the way) that this one was indeed compatible with my laptop model. It worked at first, but now I'm having these issues. There is no answer anywhere online that works for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

My Bluetooth device is turned on and has been connected to my cellphone and speaker.  But I can't get my bluetooth to connect to my laptop. Any advice?  

A:Trouble connecting bluetooth

Hi: I see that your notebook originally came with W8 from the factory, so that means that you upgraded to W10. I also see that there are no W10 bluetooth drivers for the model wireless card your notebook has on the support page. Accordingly, the only suggestion I can offer (assuming you have not done so already), would be to install the W10 bluetooth driver for the Ralink/Mediatek bluetooth radio your notebook has.... 11.0.761.0 Rev.A  Jun 18, 2015 This package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek Bluetooth in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71572.exe Restart the PC after installing the above driver and then try connecting via bluetooth.

Hey all,

I have a Windows 7 32bit Enterprise.
I bought a bluetooth speaker Anker SoundCore this week, but it wonīt connect. I installed the drivers needed, but when I click on "estblish connection", nothing would happen.

I tried reinstalling the drivers, my speaker as well as the computer are both visible, all bluetooth processes start automatically.
My computer connects normally to my old phone, but when I try to connect to my new phone and to play music via itīs speaker, it wouldnīt work as well, so I guess that computer is the problem.

Can someone help me, please?

hello all.

Ive been having trouble with my bluetooth connection. Whenever i attempt to double click my phone icon in the devices menu to view its bluetooth connection options, i get a message saying:

"an error occurred when initializing this operation. Try restarting your computer and/or the Bluetooth device. "

so, what i see so far:

-the phone successfully pairs with my computer
-each device can see each other

but they cannot interact.

the phone however will connect and interact with other bluetooth devices.

ive double checked many times, my drivers are all there and up to date.
(also used driver genius to check this)

also, whenever i start my computer, i always get the message: "ERROR: unable to start bluetooth stack service"

any ideas what's going on here?

thanks.

my system specs:

dell studio 1555
windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, build 7600

phone: verizon samsung intensity

A:need help connecting pc to phone via bluetooth

Sounds like an error with the bluetooth stack and or drivers... check Dells website for the latest versions.

Hi there, I'm having problems connecting to my bluetooth headphones.  My computer will pair with them and connect the first time no problem, but afterwards it won't recognize that it's available to Connect (it won't connect automatically and it won't show a "Connect" button).  The only way to get it to work is to Remove Device, adn re-pair it, which is very annoying. Any help would be appreciated! I've tried re-intalling the drivers with no luck, and checking for Windows updates but I'm all up to date. I have an Aspire TC-603 desktop. Thanks!

Hi all! I have problems when i try to transfer files between my PC and other devices (mobile phones, PC's) via bluetooth.

I can send files normally but i cannot receive them. When I try to receive, the connection just fails. Do you have any idea what might be the problem and how to solve it? Could it be something to do with serial ports? At the moment I am using different serial ports for sending and receiving (COM23 and COM24). How can I change the serial ports so that they would the same for sending and receiving..?
Or has it anything to do with serial ports?

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and my bluetooth device is Generic Bluetooth Radio manifactured by Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.

Br,
John

I have a Sony MDR-10RBT bluetooth headset that used to work with my HP ZBook 15 G2 laptop. I'm not sure what happened, but it no longer works.I can pair the headset, and it shows up in the Devices and Printers window.However, when I double click on the headset's icon and get the window where I can click on Listen to Music or Forward VoIP Calls to Handsfree, they are both greyed out. If I look in services:Bluetooth Media Service: not started, automaticBluetooth OBEX Service: not started, automaticBluetooth Support Service: started, manual If I try starting Bluetooth Media Service, I get an Error 1053. I have updated the Intel Bluetooth Driver for 7260/3610 WLAN (American, International) to 17.1.1504.518 Rev.A29 Jun 2015. I'm not sure what that replaces, since when I look in the Device Manager, under Intel Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter, it still says 17.0.1401.422. Any suggestions of where to look next would be appreciated.

hey

I've been having a lot of problems trying to use bluetooth on this computer. I use an HP Pavillion DV6000 and I haven't been able to use bluetooth since I got it. I have a motorola v3 and i've had the same phone for awhile, with my last laptop I had no problems connecting to it and sharing files, but there seems to be a problem with this laptop, because the cellphone works fine with another devices but i just cant connect to the laptop. Under bluetooth devices whenever i click on allow this computer to be disvoreableI get an error message saying "an error occurred while Windows was saving your settings. The Bluetooth device might be unplugged. The following settings were not saved: Discoverability settings / Connection settings." I don't really know what to do, i went online looking for answers but there isn't really any.

I love my Sony DR-BT101 bluetooth headset. It would connect fine with my PC and worked beautifully. Unexpectedly, it suddenly stopped connecting and every time I tried to pair nothing would happen. I've been able to add the device, so the PC recognizes it. However, it won't connect with the PC and the device does not show up as an option in the playback tab in the sounds menu.

So, I tried following this link:

http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-networking/24580-make-your-bluetooth-devices-work-windows-7-a.html

Still nothing. I'm not even sure what the Mobile Device Center is meant to do as the headset is not a mobile device like a handheld. It said I should see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device' - which never was listed.

My headset is not on low battery, and has never had connection issues in the past, or even problems with playback. I haven't messed with any of the PC's services or changed anything on my adapter.

If someone could help me out that would be great, or share similar attempts to solve this problem.
