  1. Unable to connect bluetooth headset, gets paired but does not connect


    I am unable to connect my Bluetooth headphones to my Windows 10 laptop. It worked fine for over half a year but now the headset gets paired but does not connect. In the Bluetooth setting it shows like this. After some time I receive a notification installing Rockerz 235v2. Then finally I get notified "The installation of this device is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator."Tried a lot of solutions but nothing worked : Thanks for your help !!! Unable to connect bluetooth headset, gets paired but does not connect :D

    :)

  2. Bluetooth audio headset not recognized by Windows - won't pair/connect

    Hi,

    I've run into a problem recently with pairing my wireless Bose Soundsport headphones to my PC. Up until recently, the headphones paired and worked fine with my PC and iPhone simultaneously. I have 2 pairs of these exact headphones, and neither of them connect to this PC. However, they still connect to any other device.

    The problem I am experiencing has persisted ever since I installed a graphics driver update via the GeForce Experience application (version 397.64, released on 05/09/2018). I updated this driver as a result of a few Memory_Management BSOD's and crashes while playing Fortnite.

    Before anyone says, "Have you tried a troubleshooter / reinstall bluetooth drivers / make device discoverable / etc..." , please know that I've gone through the basic steps to solve problems like these. The only thing I haven't done is revert to a previous graphics driver - as I'd rather not do that. From a few hours of research, I haven't seen a problem similar to this.

    What I Am Experiencing:
    - I've paired and un-paired this device many times in the past. So I know the procedure.
    - When I set the headphones to "Ready to Pair", the device name is expected to appear in the device list after clicking "Add Bluetooth or other device" in Windows Bluetooth settings.
    - Instead, I only see an audio device called "Headphone" that, when clicked, will just say "Connecting..." indefinitely (see attached image).

    In the past, the "Add Bluetooth or other device" would display the name of the device (Bose Soundsport), whereas now it only displays "Headphone". Why can my PC only see the headphones?

    Headset pairs but not connecting! N95

    Hi, Hope someone can help. I have a Samsung WEP200 headset that works with other phones, but will not connect to my N95. The headset is found, paired and authorised but just "gets unable to connect" error.

    The Bluetooth symbol also has the () symbols either side when the headset is on.

    Any suggestions would be greatly received. Unable to connect bluetooth headset, gets paired but does not connect :)

    Unable to connect bluetooth headset, gets paired but does not connect

    Bluetooth headset paired, but can't connect

    I am also facing the same issue. Windows 10 has brought nothing but all sorts of problem and issues along with it.. mine crashes now and then and i am presented a beautiful blue screen of death all of sudden losing all of my work. This is really annoying
    and unfortunately there is no support or fixes..

    Coming to your issue, every time i try to connect my Bluetooth headset i have to go through all the sufferings you are facing.

    Suggest removing the device and pair again. It always work for the first time and next time again you have to remove the device and pair again.

    Steps

    1. Go to Bluetooth Settings

    2. Under Manager Bluetooth Devices > you should see your paired headset

    3. When you click that you should see > Remove Device option

    4. Click on remove device

    5. Pair your headset again and it should work

    Next once you disconnected your headset, you may need to follow all the steps again at least i have to do all that every time i try to connect my headset.
