  1. Wireless headphones not showing in playback


    Hi I have updated my windows to new version 1603 but unfortunately I m dealing with so many issues with this new update.

    I m trying to connect my wireless headphones to my hp laptop but unable to hear sound from it.My bluetooth device is connected but not playing any Audio nor it is showing in playback also. I tried doing audio sync in devices and printers but still dealing with same issue. I tried updating my Realtek hd audio driver to the current version compatible to windows version, Still the issue persists. Same headphones are connected and playing audio into an older version of windows. I am badly frustrated after doing all the things. Kindly suggest me something. Better if you are suggesting installing with driver then kindly share the driver link for audio and bluetooth. Waiting for response

    :)

    Wireless headphones not showing in playback

    Computer Won't Auto Change the Playback Device When Headphones Plugged In/Out

    Hi Michael,

    I understand your concern and will be happy to assist you.

    Is the issue specific to only Headphones/ Does External Speaker play when plugged in?

    I suggest you to try resetting the default device as shown in the steps given below and check if the issue persists.


    • Plug in the Headphones in the machine.

    • Go to Start and Control Panel.

    • Select 'Hardware and Sound'.

    • Click 'Change system sounds'.

    • Click 'Playback' tab. (It should then show you your headphones in the list).

    • Select your proper Headphone device from the list, then Click 'Set Default'.

    • Now unplug your Headphones and select speakers from the list, then Click 'Set Default'.
    Hope it helps. Please reply for further queries on this.
