    Bluetooth Headset Not Showing Up As A Playback Device


    I just got a new LG HBS-SL5 bluetooth headset that connects to my PC but the PC does not seem to recognize them as an audio device. I cannot use them for audio or as a mic. I have tried updating the driver, unpairing and repairing, and rebooting both the headset and PC. I need to use the headset for virtual meetings but I can't get it to work. The headset works just fine when paired with my iPhone. It shows a Microsoft driver version 10.0.18362.1 and date 6/21/2006. Is there some sort of trick to this that I am missing?

    :)

  2. My bluetooth headset isn't listed in the playback devices list.

    Original Title: Bluetooth device in playback devices list Windows 10.

    I want to connect my Bose headset to my computer. The Bluetooth device list show them as paired. However my headset isn't listed in the playback devices list; so, I my computer can't send sound to my headset. How can I get my headset added to the playback
    devices list?

    Getting sound with bluetooth headset

    HI, I have bluetooth Samsung Gear Circle headset and a SoundBlaster Jam bluetooth headset. Both pair fine, both connect fine. No sound. They do not show up in "Select Device Playback". (Speakers and USB headphones show up in that list). I know that
    they both worked at one time or another, but not this time. Am I missing a step?
