Bluetooth multifunction headsets available?

Q: Bluetooth multifunction headsets available?

I'm looking to purchase a multifunction Bluetooth stereo headset with a microphone. I'd like to use one device to listen to music and online broadcasts as well as use interactive tutorial programs and the online telephonic services, e.g., Yahoo Messenger. I've been using a wired stereo headset and a separate wired mic with success but too much wired hassle. Any suggestions for such a Bluetooth product? I've seen the Kensington Bluetooth Stereo Headphones with microphone, but nothing descriptive enough to assure me it will function as I wish on my Toshiba Tecra 5-M5332.

Thanks...Larry

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.

I'm trying to connect my Bluetooth headset to a Windows 7 PC so that I can receive and make Skype calls. The headset seems to have successfully paired with and connected with the PC, but I can't get anything to play through it.
How do I check what is going wrong?
If I look in Devices and Printers, I can see the headset there.
If I right click on it and select Properties, and then look in the Services tab, it says that the headset is enabled for Audio Sink, Handsfree Telephony and Headset.
If I look under the Hardware tab, I see Bluetooth AV, Bluetooth hands-free and Bluetooth Headset.
If I look in the Sound control panel, under the Playback tab, the only device I see is Speakers. Should I see the headset here, if it's connected properly?
If I look in Sounds under the Recording tab I see Microphone (default device), Line in (currently unavailable) and Stereo Mix (currently unavailable). Is this correct, or should I see the headset here too?
How do I tell Skype to use the headset and not the speakers or the built in microphone? If I plug in a wired headset, it automatically switches off the built in speakers and microphone, and any phone calls that I then make will use the headset - why doesn't this happen with the Bluetooth device?

How do I debug all this stuff? How do I see how the headset is connected? How do I see what profile the sound applications (Skype, Lync, Media Player etc.) are using? How do I see what messages the answer button on the headset is sending?

I have kind of an amusing problem. I rescued an exotic bird that crashed into the glass of my workplace, and he has been part of the family for about 3 years. He loves to sit on my shoulder while I work on my computer. Recently he has taken a dislike to the wire coming from my headphone and microphones sets ( on 3rd pair currently). I have therefore decided to look into a set without wires. I do not know the difference between the two Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and of course sound quality is bottom line. I am looking for a pair around the $200.00 Mark give or take.

This article http://mikebeauchamp.com/misc/sennheiser-hd-555-to-hd-595-mod/ says that the $ 150.00 difference between these headphones is the maker just put a piece of foam in them to cripple the exact same innards. He further proves a point with digital cameras, The software is all identical just crippled to make a lower cost unit.

So I need some advice I don;t want to pay $150 for some foam , I just want a good headset with a microphone, To listen to videos and music I am not a gamer.

When I was on the search for my wireless headset (mainly to use for voice chats and listening to music), I started to search on Amazon.com. From there, I checked the reviews, prices, etc. I wanted comfort as much as good quality. I ended up purchasing a Plantronics headset. Love it so far. My fiancee uses a Sony and he loves his too.

I must say I'm a bit surprised that I can't seem to find a definitive answer as I would have thought they'd be plenty of people in my position.

I simply want to connect two bluetooth headsets (would they have to be identical?) to my laptop at the same time so that my wife and I can either listen to music or watch movies together.

I've seen a couple of answers on the web stating the Bluesoleil software will do it but they might be just saying that get me to buy the software. There also seems to be a device that you plug into the audio port (3.5mm) although not popular and that's not using the onboard Bluetooth chip.

Obviously this can be done using wired headsets but I just want wireless.

Thanks very much and hope you can help.

I always thought of Bluetooth as such a simple act of connecting as speaker wire is to a speaker, when your friends thought "Aren't you afraid of electrocution?"

Well at the moment, I would welcome a good life ending jolt, just to complain to my maker that Windows and Bluetooth are not working as "A TEAM"

I recently obtained a pair of headphones that work great as a hands free solution to driving while listening to music and then taking a call, all controlled by a few buttons on the right earpiece. Unfortunately you have to leave one ear off when passing a cop, otherwise it looks like you have your parents headphones hooked up to a boombox, and you will get pulled over.

So I thought, well they have such great fidelity for the price, like getting Bose for $20 American, I'll just pair it with my Sony Vaio Win 7 64 laptop, barely 2 yrs old.

Well it can pair with the laptop, bur the fun ends there. All the wonderful troubleshooting devices on Windows 7 (that you know have a 1% chance of solving the issue) can't seem to connect. Finally, when Windows gives up, it directs you to Broadcomm or whomever lay claim to the ******* child known as Bluetooth.

Yes I tried all the driver suggestions.

You know what the big Broadcomm fix for Windows 7 does? - Stops after you've downloaded it, and start installing it, saying "an OLD version of Bluetooth has been found, you must remove it before attempting to install this update"

Hey guys,

well I currently have two motherboards ASUS M4A79T deluxe, ASUS P7P55D, Which would be best for a web server running Ubuntu 10.10, Apache and Samba for file server. "Home Use"

I'm thinking the 1055T X6 for better future, but I'm thinking i5 for stability. I plan to have 16GB ram since price for ram is cheap.

I also have 5 HDD's including one VelociRaptor 150GB

what do ya think???
 

A:1055T or i5 760, for multifunction server?

In terms of stability, neither the 1055T or i5 are any different, they're both stable CPUs, and a system running either is not going to offer any advantages in regards to that.

I would choose the 6 core Phenom (because of the two or more additional cores) over the i5 (assuming its a 2/4 thread model) though, but both will be more than fine for a home-server type setup. I would also purchase a good aftermarket cooler for a Phenom setup as well, to help keep it cool if its running 24/7.

16GB should also be absolutely plenty of RAM as well.

Equally important (and not commented about in your post) is ensuring your server has gigabit network connectivity though, especially if you plan to be using it as a data/backup server on your home network. If it was me I'd drop down to 8GB of RAM and then purchase a good gigabit switch and router, and cat 5e/6 network cabling (and gigabit NICs if needed) to ensure your network has the best bandwidth and speed possible. Being stuck on 10/100 speeds across your network would in my opinion waste the performance of your server.

A:Share HP 1510 Multifunction XP / Win 7

Hello diegodiniz,

short answer.
You have to make sure both Windows 7 and Windows XP use the same workgroup name.
Install your printer in Windows 7, make sure it works.
Then in Windows 7, share your printer.
Install additional XP drivers on your printer in Windows 7 (printer properties->sharing tab) , sometimes you need to edit the .inf file of your extracted XP drivers, to make sure the shared printer name equals the printer name in the .inf file. Those drivers are downloaded automatically to your XP machine if you connect to the Windows 7 Printer.

If you need more information, feel welcome in the forum to ask your questions.

Have a nice day!

Howdy All,
This is not a problem per se, I am seeking information. I want to upgrade my multifunction printer to one that uses separate ink tanks as I always use the blue up first then have to replace the whole tri colour cartridge whilst there is still ink in it. I currently use and am very happy with my Hewlett Packard but have been looking at upgrading and the one I like is $400 australian, a little out of my pocket. In my local computer store, there are Epson multifunctions with separate ink tanks for $170 australian but the store just wants to sell me something and isn't too good at answering questions. The main thing I am trying to find out, with little success or maybe I am not asking the right questions in "searches", is whether this Epson has separate printheads with each ink tank, like the Hewlett Packard does. I once had a Cannon printer that the heads died on and it cost me more than the printer to buy a new set. I was a newbie and the store didn't bother to tell me it would be cheaper to buy a new printer than to buy the print heads. I have since found out that not all MFP's have the print heads changed with each ink tank and some just use a built in set, which means it gets more expensive in the long run when changing things over or if you have print head problems.
Hopefully, some TSG members might be able to help me or point me in the right direction for links to find out my answers!!!

Hello Everyone.

I have been looking at the Brother MFC-7820N and the MFC-8460N. On the website and brochures at Staples, the MFC-840N has a "1200 x 1200 dpi high-quality print resolution" and color scanning up to 19,200 x 19,200 dpi. The MFC-7280N has a "laser output" of 2400 x 600 dpi and color scanning of 9600 x 9600 dpi.

I know that a higher dpi = higher resolution but why on the MFC-7820N is the laser out not equal: the x-axis being larger (2400 x 600 dpi)? Is there an advantage to this?

Thanks in advance/

Hi all. I have a Print server currently that is built in to my router, but it doesn't have USB compatibility. So my setup is like this: cable modem connected to wired router, port 1 of router connected to WAP, port 2 connected to desktop PC, WAP connected to laptop with PCMCIA card and printer connected to router with LPT cable. (port 3 and 4 are free).

I want to puchase a multifunction printer, but the problem with this is that I cannot use it with my current print server built in to my router. I would rather get a wireless router with built in print server, but will the multifunction printer be able to scan on the network as well as print or just print?

The Brother DCP 310CN's review says this...Sharing a printer across a network, whether wired or not, is relatively simple. Unfortunately, sharing a scanner is much trickier. You can't just plug your scanner and share it using Windows. Nor will most print-servers - devices that you use to share printers over a network - allow you share a scanner.

Brother has the answer. Its new multifunction device, the DCP-310CN has an integrated network port. This means you can plug it into your router or hub and share it with all PCs on your home or office network.

If this is true this means that I can plug this multifunction printer into a port on my router, and share it without buying a print server, right? Or does this mean that I have to connect to printer to my wan port (currently has my cable modem on it).

Hi,

I've been trying to install a new multifunction printer. I am using Vista Home Premium on a Dell Dimension E521. I originally tried installing a Brother DCP-130C which is supposedly vista compatible. The installation appeared to go ok until I had to plug in the USB cable. The found new hardware wizard recognised it had been plugged in yet the installation package went no further. I tried different USB cables and different ports. After an hour and a half on the phone to their tech support and checking it worked on a computer with XP we gave up and sent it back.

Yesterday I bought a HP photosmart C4180 again I'd been told by the selllers it was compatible and it came with a CD saying Vista on it. I have had exactly the same problems with that. Another hour on the phone to HP tech support and they couldn't seem to fix the problem so I tried ringing Dell. The ports work so Dell don't feel it's their problem and I should speak to microsoft. Rang microsoft, they'll only help you if you bought Vista from them (mine was pre-installed on the computer when I bought it) so I should ring Dell again!

I'm going around in circles, no one seems to be able to help so they keep trying to pass me on to someone else. This is my last resort.

Please can someone tell me what the problem might be and how I could fix it. I really need a printer that works but I'm at the end of my tether.

Many thanks

I have just purchased the above but the installation has been far more complex than I expected.

Installed from CD using USB connection. There was one error that seemed to come from Windows 7 Pro rather than the install program which stated that PCL had not been installed successfully. Not sure if this is significant?

I have printed successfully from the computer.

Now I want to learn about scanning using the Automatic Document Feeder (Duplex). I initialy want to experiment and scan a multipage document to a multipage pdf file.

The program that came on the CD that would seem to be the one to use is called "Actkey"

I select "Folder" but then get a message "Please check that the device is set to remote PC mode" and can't get any further. What does this mean?

Hello and thank you for viewing this post.

So here's what I need to happen; I require two usb headsets to both function on one PC. I need the sound to be delivered to each individual headset and the microphone from each individual headset to be picked up by the pc.

I connected both USB headsets to the computer. They are both listed within Control Panel > Sound. I opened voice recorder and both mics recorded successfully. I played back my recording, but it would only come through on the default headset. Switch the default headset and the play back would switch as well. Both headsets would test just fine without having to change the defaults.

So is there a way in Windows to deliver the output to both headsets? Or perhaps within Media Player to play to both default and secondary headsets?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, this is my first post. If I make some mistakes don't mind me.

I usually help setting up offices and lately I had many companies buying this printer M26A

http://www8.hp.com/in/en/products/printers/product-detail.html?oid=9365263#!tab=specs

I successfully install the printer on ONE pc (this model has only usb connection) I share the printer and I successfully install it on other 3 PCs in the same office. Since this model is a multifunction printer it comes with a scanner. Is it possible to share the scanner too. The only way I manage to make it is using the PC that the printer is connected to start the scanner and than putting the scanned file shared folder so all other PCs can access it.
Is it possible to use the scanner from the other 3 pcs so they can directly save the file to their pc?

I don't understand why companies want to save 10$ instead of buying m26nw which has wifi and lan connection, they buy the cheaper model wich is much harder to set up.

The XP driver for this was pretty good for a typical cumbersome driver from HP. The Vista/W7 driver works minimally and the control panels look great but:
1. Normal vs. Fastdraft print selection results in terrible low density quality.
2. Can't change the default printer selection.

I have found that W7 installs better drivers than what is available for HP m/f printers. If you uninstall your driver and reboot, with the printer attached to your machine, W7 will load a driver that is compatible.

I'm trying to figure out how to scan stuff to a computer on an HP LaserJet 3330 scanner/copier/printer/fax. The thing is hooked up to a print server on a 100Mb/s network w/about 7 or 8 computers, and I'm trying to get it to scan to another computer on the network. Any ideas?

I'm not sure if you can make it scan through a genereic print server..
You most certainly need the bloated, huge and slow HP software to do it.

I have recenlty acquired a Ricoh multifunction device (scanner/copier/printer/fax), and it is functioning as the network printer in my Windows 2000 network with a server and four copiers. I would like to use this device as the network scanner. Would you please walk me through setting this device up as the network scanner? There is not much in this specific to the machine (as I understand it) but rather just the general process of setting up a device as a network peripheral device. Thank you. David

Hi everyone,

I am looking to buy an all-in-one colour laser printer. Haven't had one before, so I'm hoping for suggestions??

- Looking to spend around 3 - 400 GBP.

- Would like seperate CMYK toners, rather than just black and 'colour'

- Also something that has good availability of generic or remanufactured toners to keep consumable costs down.

- Wireless would be nice

Any suggestions, or feedback on different manufacturers / models woulld be very gratefully received

Thanks,

Bob

I bought 10 Samsung 3175FN printers for some home office employees last year, and they have been running very well. They seem to be harder to find, though, so I'm not sure if Samsung is about to replace them with a new model or not.

Hi there,

I am looking to buy a Multifunction Printer in the price range of about $200/100 or more.

Any thing to look out for or Recommendations?
 

A:Need Advice/Recommendation for a Multifunction Printer

There is a great search engine called GOOGLE...

With that price range, what are you planning to print, copy, scan and fax? Are you running a million dollar (pound) business?

Hi, I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC connected to a home network with other PCs connected. Additionally, there's a network printer (HP Officejet 6310xi) that available on the network. Now when I had my XP PC on the network, I was able to access the printer's printing, scanning and faxing resources via the control software (HP Solution) which worked fine, but it took a great deal of space and resources. Now I have a Windows 7 system, I really don't want to tie up resources with this control software, however, when I use the device wizard, all I find is the printer resource. I am frustrated with HP's only solution is to install the control program and no other way to scan or fax over the network. Isn't there a way to manually install a network device? I mean, technically, you can manually install a network printer with Windows, but why not a network scanner or network fax machine?

A:Manually add a network multifunction printer?

Multifunction devices require specialized drivers to get things working. Sorry, but that's just the price of doing business. You could probably get the printing working, but the scanner and fax won't work at all without the network drivers from HP. You may be able to do some experimenting and uninstall some of the applications and keep the drivers intact; checking the HP site/forum may help - you might get lucky and find someone that's done exactly that.

I have several computers on this new Brother MFC-8860DN printer/fax/scanner/copier and one of them won't print. I've tried everything I can think of, and even gone through all the troubleshooting steps in the Help & Support Center to try to get it printing. This is the only PC that is having trouble, and I don't knoe why!!?!?! Can anyone here help me?

I purchased a linksys router, notebook card, usb adapter & a print server. The print server is not compatible with my canon f50 multi function printer. I want to know if there is a print server that is compatible with the canon f50 to make the printer part work and if so is it compatible with the linksys router?

I really doubt it if you want to use all the functions. I have an HP PSC-750, but when I was using a USB printer server, all I could access was the printer. Since my server is on all the time anyway, I connected it there, and now I can use the scanner too.

I have one of these Epson Multi function printers.

Epson DX9400 Fax

I am having a problem with the black printing. The other colors are fine (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) and the problem occurs only when I print, photo copies print black just fine which is the reason I am stumped. I recently purchased some 3rd party cartridges to save money and this problem started. Well I thought that the cartridges were defective so I got some original Epson brand and the same results. I've tried head cleaning several times and same thing with both cartridges which I know are good because the copies are just fine. It's only when I send a print to it that the black does not work.. Anyone have an idea on what to look for or is it time to chunk it?

"or is it time to chunk it?"...

I would say yes

The problem is I use the scanning function often and print function occasionally. Hence each time I switch the unit on it goes through a cleaning cycle and uses some ink to do this. The ink cartridges run out even though I may print only 5 - 10 pages. Any way to disable print function with software??
 

A:Epson cx4100 multifunction problem

That cleaning cycle is required to keep the print head from clogging up, which would result in poor or no printing. I don't believe it can be disabled anyway.
