  1. Bluetooth Connecting Help - Headphones not showing up.


    Ok so, firstly this is my first post, so hi everyone, and now onto the matter: About 3 days ago, I shut down my laptop for the day, no updates or anything and put my headphones away. When I opened it the next morning, my headphones were connected but kept disconnecting and going back to 'Paired'. I thought nothing of this and continued, until they just stopped working, so I tried turning everything off and on again, and it still wasn't fixed. I thought this was a problem with my headphones, so I charged them again, and it worked with other devices(my iPhone). I know it is not a problem with the headphones, as they work on my computer, and my work and home iPhones. I tried updating drivers and software, and the problem was still happening. Please can someone help me, those are my only headphones, and I need sound to listen to music, videos etc. Also my Windows Version Number is: Windows 10 Home Version 20H2, OS Build: 19042.985 Thanks, and bye.

    :)

    Cannot connect to bluetooth headphones after upgrade to Win10


    I upgraded my Lenovo W530 running Win7 Pro 64 bit to Windows 10. After the upgrade I can no longer connect to my bluetooth headphones which worked before the upgrade. The bluetooth radio is on. When I click Connect in the Action Center it shows that the headphones are connected but they are not. The headphones (actually my hearing aids) play a notification sound when a bluetooth connection is made and I never hear that sound. If I play music the sound goes to the speaker, not my headphones. I have removed the headphones and repaired them. I have checked that all of the bluetooth device drivers are up to date in Device Manager. I would really appreciate any suggestions to solve this problem. Thanks.

    Bluetooth Connecting Help - Headphones not showing up.

    Windows 10 says bluetooth headphones are connected but also not connected

    This is one of those nightmare issues where it seems to only be a problem between one computer and one device. The headphones connect just fine on other windows 10 machines, and other bluetooth headphones connect just fine to this computer.

    Details:

    Upon adding the device in bluetooth, windows says the headphones are connected, but the headphones do not indicate they are connected. The headphones are listed with three separate entries in the bluetooth settings window, under input devices, audio, and unspecified, but this is also the case on the computer where the headphones work just fine. In playback devices, the headphones are listed, but show as disconnected. Selecting "connect" does nothing.

    In Devices and printers, the headphones show as connected and troubleshooter finds no problems. If the devices were paired by selecting the available devices listing that the headphone instructions say to select, the right-click menu does not show the "control" option. If paired by selecting the other listing, the control option will be there, but the only option will be to use the device as a proximity lock. Also pairing this way will cause the default windows 10 bluetooth settings window to minimize instantly whenever opened until the device is removed.

    Steps already taken:

    Used both device manager and a driver utility to check for for driver updates, uninstalled bluetooth devices and drivers and reinstalled, ran sfc /scannow, restarted pc and re-paired headphones numerous times.
