    Can't get bluetooth to connect on Win10


    Hi,

    This has been driving me up the wall for ages - and I can't for the life of me work it out. I've installed the drivers that came with my bluetooth dongle ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/EkoBuy%C2%A.../dp/B01D3Q0228 ) . I've tried their website as well (based on a google search), and it seems they have uploaded a crappy test site with lots of "lorem ipsum" content on it - which is useless)

    Anyway - this is what I see in device manager:

    ....and this is what I get when opening the bluetooth terminal ("bluetooth radio" is turned on). Then alongside it is what I see what I try and debug bluetooth connections.

    I just don't get why it won't recognise it :/ (I had issues with my old Win10 machine, but this one I've not managed to connect it once)

    TIA

    Andy

    Bluetooth Connection Issue - headphones, LE vs regular connection

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forum.

    To have a better clarity on the issue and guide you accordingly, respond to the questions listed below:

    1. Have you tried connecting the headphones to another computer and check if it’s working fine?
    2. What is the make and model of the computer?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest you with few simple steps. Kindly follow the same.

    Step 1: Troubleshoot problems with Bluetooth accessories.

    If you can turn on Bluetooth but are having problems pairing or using a Bluetooth accessory, kindly follow the article which gives you steps on
    Audio troubleshoot problems from - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14169/windows-10-fix-bluetooth-problems

    Step 2: There are two terms regarding Bluetooth: pairing and connecting. Pairing is the introduction of one device to another. Once paired, they will stay in each other’s memory until manually erased. Once a device
    is paired, the headset can then connect to that device to receive audio or voice from the device.

    • Go into the device's paired list and manually select the Bluetooth.
    • You may need to clear your paired list in your headset and re-pair your headset to your device.
    • To clear your paired list in your headset, follow these steps: on the headset, press and hold the call and volume – buttons for 10 seconds
    • The headset will revert to discoverable mode (slowly blinking LED), allowing you to re-pair the computer you want connect.

    We await your response.

    Regards,

    Mala. S
