How to Fix Bluetooth Pairing Problems

Bluetooth is a popular method of wirelessly transferring data between two devices such as your phone and your headphones, your media player and a speaker, or your iPad and a keyboard. It’s one of the most widely used wireless technology in the world, according to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. More than 4.6 billion Bluetooth products are expected to ship this year alone, and that number will likely increase to more than 6 billion per year by 2024.

Bluetooth is all great when it works. But if you’re someone who likes to play around with these kinds of connected gadgets, you know it can be frustrating when there’s a hang-up pairing the two. Here are some common causes of pairing problems as well as advice on what you can do about them.

Why Bluetooth pairings fail

Bluetooth depends on both hardware and software to work properly. So if your devices can't speak a common Bluetooth language, they won’t be able to connect.

In general, Bluetooth is backward compatible: Bluetooth devices supporting the Bluetooth 5 standard should still be able to pair with devices using, say, the ancient Bluetooth 2.1, launched back in 2007.

The exceptions are gadgets that use a low-energy version called Bluetooth Smart, which works on a different protocol than older, or "Classic" Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth Smart devices are not backward compatible and won't recognize (or pair with) older devices that support Classic Bluetooth. (For example, an old Sony Ericsson phone sporting Bluetooth 3.0 won't be able to connect to a Bluetooth Smart device.)

However, if a device supports Bluetooth 4.0 (in some cases), 4.2 (in most cases) or 5.0 (in most cases), it should recognize both Bluetooth Smart and Classic. Bluetooth 4.0 devices will be officially labeled Bluetooth Smart Ready. In the case of Bluetooth 4.2 and 5, it's expected.

Gadgets that commonly use Bluetooth Smart include personal health gadgets such as fitness bands or heart-rate monitors. These gadgets will only pair with a smartphone or tablet that also uses Bluetooth Smart – or are Bluetooth Smart Ready.

Most smartphones are Bluetooth Smart compatible. That includes iPhones running iOS 7 and newer, Android phones running 4.3 or newer, Windows Phone 8.1 devices, and all BlackBerry 10 devices. Ensure your phone is running the latest version of its operating system – but if your device isn't new enough to run relatively current software, you may not be able to pair it with that fitness band.

Devices also come with specific Bluetooth profiles. If Bluetooth is the common language connecting devices, you can think of a profile as a dialect associated with a certain use. For example, you probably aren't going to be able to connect a mouse and a camera because a camera doesn’t support the Human Interface Device Profile. But if both a mobile phone and a wireless headset support the Hands-Free Profile, you should be able to pair them.

However, if the pairing failure is a matter of user error, there are steps you can take to get your devices happily communicating with each other.

What you can do about Bluetooth pairing failures

1. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on

You should see the little Bluetooth symbol at the top right of the screen if you have an Android device. For iOS and iPadOS, you'll need to go into the settings to enable and disable Bluetooth. Windows users will find Bluetooth in Settings > Devices > Bluetooth (or you may have a shortcut on your taskbar). Mac users will find a Bluetooth status icon on the menu bar.

2. Determine which pairing process your device employs

The process for pairing devices can vary. Sometimes, for example, it involves tapping a code into your phone or computer. Other times, you can just physically touch your phone to the device you want to pair it with (you'll see this option with phones and devices that have NFC, or Near Field Communications, as a feature. It's commonly found on Android phones). 

If you’re not sure how to pair a device, refer to its user guide; you can usually find one by searching online.

3. Turn on discoverable mode

Let’s say you want to pair your phone with your car’s infotainment system so you can enjoy hands-free calling, texting and navigation. First, go into your phone’s settings and tap on Bluetooth; doing so makes the phone visible to the car. Then depress the buttons on your car's infotainment system, usually on the steering wheel or center stack, to get it looking for the device.

Once it finds your phone, the car may ask for a numeric code that you'll need to confirm or input on your phone. After you do so, the devices should be paired. Keep in mind your phone or your car may only stay in discoverable mode for a few minutes; if you take too long, you’ll need to start over.

If your device is new, it will often be in pairing mode when you first turn it on. A good indicator that a device is in pair mode is if it blinks. If the device has been paired with another device, you'll need to turn on pairing mode. 

4. Make sure the two devices are in close enough proximity to one another 

While you wouldn’t think someone might try to pair an iPad with a keyboard if the two weren’t sitting right next to each other, it’s probably worth noting that you should make sure any devices you're trying to pair are within five feet of one other.

5. Power the devices off and back on

A soft reset sometimes can resolve an issue. With phones, an easy way to do this is by going into and out of airplane mode.

6. Remove old Bluetooth connections 

If you're having trouble pairing your phone with the speaker, it could be because the speaker is trying to connect with another phone, laptop or tablet. Some older speakers and headphones are very simple; they just try to connect with the last thing they paired with. If your headphones or speaker were previously paired with another phone, laptop or tablet, turn off that other device or Bluetooth. And if you are no longer planning on using your headphones or speaker with that device, unpair it to prevent future issues. In iOS settings, you can remove a device by tapping on its name and then Forget this Device. In Android settings, tap on a device’s name, then Unpair. After removing a device, start at step 1 on this list.

Some speakers and headphones can store pairing for multiple devices. However, there is a limit to the number of devices' pairing information that they can store. If you're having trouble pairing headphones or a speaker that have been paired to many devices in the past, you may need to reset your headphones or speakers to clear out all of the pairings so you can start fresh. Search "reset" and your device name for instructions from the manufacturer on your specific model.

7. Charge up both devices you're trying to pair

Some devices have smart power management that may turn off Bluetooth if the battery level is too low. If your phone or tablet isn't pairing, make sure it and the device you're trying to pair with have enough juice.

8. Delete a device from a phone and rediscover it

If your phone sees a device but isn’t receiving data from it, sometimes it helps to start from scratch. In iOS settings, you can remove a device by tapping on its name and then Forget this Device. In Android settings, tap on a device’s name, then Unpair. 

If you're deleting the device from your car, you may need to turn off your car after deleting the device, open and close the car door, and wait a couple of minutes before trying to pair the device again.

After removing a device, start at step 1 on this list.

9. Get away from the WiFi router

Another potential obstacle to successful pairing is interference from devices that use the same spectrum, such as your Wi-Fi router. Wi-Fi has been designed to cope with this, but it might not be a good idea to have your devices directly on top of the router.

10. Move away from a USB 3.0 port

Interference from USB 3.0 is also possible. Newer laptops, for example, often have the higher-speed USB 3.0 port, so if the connection isn't happening, try pairing your Bluetooth gadgets away from the computer.

11. Make sure the devices you want to pair are designed to connect with each other 

Whether it’s a headset, speaker, mouse, keyboard, camera or something else, your device has a specific profile that spells out what it can connect with. If you’re not sure, check the user manual.

12. Download a driver

If you’re having problems pairing something with your PC, you might be lacking the correct driver. The simplest way to figure this out is to do an online search for the name of the device you’re trying to pair along with the word “driver.”

13. Update the hardware’s firmware

Some automotive audio systems have been known to not pair with phones because the Bluetooth drivers in these systems didn’t work with Bluetooth 4.0. If you’re not sure how to get the latest firmware for your hardware, check with the device manufacturer.

14. Limit data shared between devices

Android and Windows devices let you choose the information you share between devices. So, for instance, you can choose to share phone audio, media audio, contacts and text messages with your car. If you don't need to share all of the data, deselecting one or more of the types of information may enable the devices to pair. 

For Android 10 devices, go to Settings > Connected devices and select the device. If there are options to select, they will appear. For Windows, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers > right click on the Bluetooth device in question and select Properties. Then select the Services tab to choose which types of information to share.

15. Clear the Bluetooth cache

Sometimes apps will interfere with Bluetooth operation and clearing the cache can solve the problem. For Android phones, go to Settings > System > Advanced> Reset Options > Reset Wi-fi, mobile & Bluetooth. For iOS and iPadOS device, you'll have to unpair all of your devices (go to Setting > Bluetooth, select the info icon and and choose Forget This Device for each device) then restart your phone or tablet.

Not all wireless devices use Bluetooth

Keep in mind that not all wireless devices use Bluetooth. Alternatives include the Wireless Gigabit specification, Wireless HD, ANT+, ZigBee, NFC as well as Wi-Fi Direct. These other technologies typically won’t work with your phone, tablet or PC without some kind of additional hardware.

A simple tip

From User on December 19, 2019 :: 4:26 am

If your device (for example, earbuds or speaker) isn’t discoverable, try to press and hold the on/off button for at least 5 seconds. That often fixes the probelm


Logiteck bluetooth keyboard won't pair

From tj gtes on December 21, 2019 :: 2:04 pm

No matter how many times I try every suggestion my bluetooth Logitech keyboard will not pair successfully with my new iPad. I have tried every suggestion I can find on internet and it absolutely will not pair. I used to work with my old iPad mini but that is no longer used and is turned off. Turned off all other Mac devices and still won’t pair. frustrating to say the least!


Connected... but not?

From Janna on December 28, 2019 :: 4:32 pm

I have an Altec Lansing bluetooth speaker that automatically connects to my Windows 10 desktop when I turn it on, but it always connects as “voice” only. Then I just disconnect it, then reconnect and it connects as “voice and music”. Any idea how I can make it connect correctly the first time and every time?


Galaxy Tab A not pairing with Fitbit Versa

From sacdman on January 02, 2020 :: 2:04 am

Have an old fitbit One. Syncs beautifully with my Galaxy Tab A. I need an expert opinion. Bought a Versa, downloaded thet set up and set up went fine.

After that, simply could not sync the fitbit to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A.

Now, is syncing a fitbit Versa to a Galaxy Tab A just not gonna work? Must I use a cellphone? I do not use a cellphone. Period. I want some detailed responses as to why my Tab A would not sync with the fitbit. I can certainly install the fitbit app, but from there, after I have set it up, its a dead duck.

I did try to remove it and re-add it, but it only synced for a moment.

Am I required to use a cellphone with a fitbit? Is this a must?

Thanks for your time.

Bluetooth headphones will not pair with TV transmitter

From Bob Horn on January 05, 2020 :: 4:10 pm

I have a MEE tv transmitter to use with my JBL Bluetooth headphones. I hook every thing up as stated by manuals. I cannot get my headphones to pair with transmitter. I use the optical out output.


Can I link a Bluetooth Transmitter with a Bluetooth Receiver

From Geoff on January 05, 2020 :: 4:44 pm

My application is this - I want to take output from my TV via an owned Video Capture device which feeds to a USB output. I then want to get this output to my computer, 10 metres distant in another room. Will a separate bluetooth transmitter, paired to a separate bluettoj receiver device do this? Then I would hope data would pass from TV to Video Capture, via USB connector to the bluetooth tranmsitter, to bluetooth receiver, via USB connection to my PC. Will this work please? I see small Bluetooth Transmitter devices and Bluetooth Receiver devices for sale on eBay.


One side of Bluetooth earbuds will not work

From Samantha on January 13, 2020 :: 10:08 am

I have Amorono bluetooth earbuds that I got for christmas and the left side has completely stopped working. It will not charge or turn on. The right one still works perfectly. They did pair to my phone and computer but all of a sudden the left completely stopped doing anything. I just tried resetting my computer which didn’t help. I don’t know what else to do/try with them any more.


Return them.

From Josh Kirschner on January 13, 2020 :: 3:58 pm

Since you just got them, I would return/exchange them. Sounds like a faulty product issue.

Please Help

From Adriean Rivera on January 28, 2020 :: 9:14 pm

When i hold down the power button on my headphones, they do not turn on. Ive tried clicking it once, holding it down really long, and combining other buttons. It just won,t turn on. Unless i plug it into the charger. My headphones only turn on and connect while they are on the charger. I have tried to connect it on the charger and then unplugging it to see if it stays connected, but it just turns it off. I’ve tried leaving it to charge all day. It still won’t turn on. I have been searching everywhere and it just tells me gow to connect the bluetooth. It doesn’t tell me how to turn it on. I hope that someone can help because it sucks listening to things with cored headphones that aren’t loud enough. Thanks for your time.


ONN Earbuds Not Recognized by Alcatel 3V Phone

From Ricky Moore on February 03, 2020 :: 7:12 pm

I have a pair of ONN Earbuds that pair fine with every other phone and blue tooth device I have. I also have a nearly identical set which also work with everything I have.

Except my new phone. My new phone will pair with my speakers just fine but it doesn’t even SEE the ONN earbuds. It does not matter what order I turn them on in, what other devices are present, etc. They flat out DO NOT APPEAR in this phone’s Bluetooth setting even though they appear and connect fine with ANY other phone I try. The fact that this is even possible implies to me there is something fundamentally wrong with the way bluetooth wireless is done.

And no, it’s not a backwards-compatibility issue: my earbuds are cheap convenience store disposables (altough they’ve worked for years) and my phone is brand new and cost $200. I always run into this finicky horse-shit with bluetooth, I wish they’d just replace it with something that’s actually plug-and-play and not a mess of errors and security problems.

HELP Deleting phone from Car

From Amy on February 21, 2020 :: 1:35 am

My wife set up her android phone to my Cadillac 2010 DTS.
how do I remove that along with removing her voice And her contacts so I can then pair my phone with my contacts


There are a few ways depend on your setup

From Josh Kirschner on February 21, 2020 :: 4:42 pm

There are a couple different methods depending on which system you have in your Cadillac DTS.

Option #1
Press the push to talk button. Say “Hands Free”, then “Bluetooth”, “Delete” and give the name of the device you want to delete. This should remove the synced contacts, as well. If you don’t know the name of the device, say “Hands Free”, then “Bluetooth”, then “List,” to get the names of any paired devices.

If the system isn’t recognizing your voice for deleting the paired device, one Cadillac owner suggested the following trick in an owners’ forum
Long press the telephone symbol on the mirror for OnStar. A message comes on with options, one option was to change the language. 0 for English, 1 for French, 2 for Spanish. Choose a language and you should get a message that says, “If you change your language all Name Tags will be deleted.” Confirm the language change. Prior devices should be removed and the system should be set to pair with your device.

Option #2 (from Cadillac)
Use your vehicle’s touchscreen to navigate to your vehicle’s “Paired Bluetooth Devices” list (see above). Find the name of the phone you’re having issues with. Select that phone and then delete it from the list of previously paired devices.


pairing Link Dream to GPS and iPhone

From martin johnson on February 21, 2020 :: 10:40 am

I had a LG bluetooth head set connected to my iPhone and Garmin GPS where I could use both at the same time. I just got a Link Dream LC-B41 bluetooth head set. It said you can pair two objects at the same time. When I try to pair both it will only let me pair one at a time. It does work with both at different times. IT says to pair one itum then switch it off then pair the other then switch them both off and then switch them both on and they should be paired. When I do that I loose both bluetooth connections to the ear phone. When it says switch them off does it mean the power . My LG head set worked fine with both. How do I connect my new headset so I can use the both at.

Cannot transfer files from tablet to laptop

From PennyPA on March 26, 2020 :: 10:23 am

I’m trying to transfer files from my Samsung tablet to my Lenovo laptop running Windows 10 but BT keeps recognizing my tablet as a phone.  Is this because they’re both Android?  Anyway, it says the tablet is recognized by the laptop and I get a passcode and they’re the same on both devices but I still get the message “Cannot connect to ...”  What am I doing wrong?


My tablet is NOT a phone

From PennyPA on March 26, 2020 :: 10:37 am

To add to my connection problem…It shows a phone next to the Galaxy Tab A in the “Paired” area (on the Lenovo) but my tablet isn’t a phone. And I get the message “audio, media”.  What’s up with that?


Here's how to transfer files via Bluetooth with Windows 10

From Josh Kirschner on March 27, 2020 :: 6:26 pm

Sharing files over Bluetooth with Windows 10 is a somewhat different process than setting up a Bluetooth device for audio. Here’s how to receive files from your phone onto your PC via Microsoft:

1) On your PC, select Start > Settings > devices > Bluetooth & other devices. Make sure your phone appears and shows as Paired.
2) In Bluetooth & other devices settings, select Send or receive files via Bluetooth > Receive files.
3) Send the files from your phone to your PC.
4) On your laptop, on the Save the received file screen in Bluetooth File Transfer, select the location to save the file or files to > Finish.

Pairing & connecting..... over & over & over

From Melissa Z. on April 23, 2020 :: 2:25 pm

Ok I have a “Blackweb LED Bluetooth Speaker” that I’ve used many times with my phone. Then all of a sudden over the last few days ~ I’ll be connected to it, I’ll be on the internet and then it disconnects on its own and then goes through the pairing and reconnecting process automatically. And then it can be fine for a while (10 to 20 minutes) then it starts doing it (disconnects- pairing & reconnects) over again…... BUT Non-Stop this time! So frustrating! I have shut off my phone as well as the speaker and basically started the process all over again with the same results. Please please PLEASE help me ~ as I am SO CLOSE to pulling my hair out! And this speaker is ONLY like a month-and-a-half old…... Therefore, I don’t see how it should be doing this?!?


Sounds like interference

From Josh Kirschner on April 23, 2020 :: 2:43 pm

Various devices can interfere with your Bluetooth signal, causing the types of drops you’re describing. Since Bluetooth uses the same 2.4 GHz frequency as WiFi, try to switch WiFi devices to 5GHz, where possible. Also move your speaker away from any power cables, baby monitors, fluorescent lights, microwaves, etc.

Let me know if that helps.

Need Help for iBall with Juarez QY7

From Daniel on May 04, 2020 :: 7:15 am

I had earlier paired the QY7 Juarez headset with iBall Slide. Then I unpaired it by clicking on the option ‘Forget’ in the Bluetooth settings. However later whenever I tried to connect it, it just doesn’t show up in the devices list. I even switched both the iBall Slide and the QY7 OFF and then ON, but to no avail. Could you please help.
BTW, the QY7 is detected by Honor 7x and functions quite well. Also, the Slide does detect the Boult headset after it has been unpaired by selecting the option ‘Forget’.

Restoring Missing Bluetooth Peripheral Drivers

From Clifford Farley on May 11, 2020 :: 9:37 am

Hello I have Win7 64 bit Home Premium.
I noticed after clicking on Bluetooth
in Device Manager, drop down list of 3
peripheral drivers showing yellow marks.

The person who I bought the laptop (Sony Vaio)
from very kindly supplied a recovery disk that
has windows & all drivers for the hardware.

Please advise how to restore these drivers from the disk so I
can pair an iPhone with my laptop to get online.  Thanks.


I would suggest a different approach

From Josh Kirschner on May 11, 2020 :: 3:08 pm

First off, as of January, Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft. There are no more security patches or other fixes, leaving your laptop at much higher risk for malware. I would strongly recommend upgrading the laptop to Windows 10.

If you do keep Windows 7, you should update your drivers from the Sony site so you have the latest versions, not from the recovery disk (which will be years old, at this point). The Sony Vaio may have a help utility to assist with that or you can look up your model on the Sony support site:

It may also be that the drivers aren’t your issue. Usually device manager will provide more information about why a specific component is disabled. What does it say?

I can’t disconnect Bluetooth Jaba

From Keß Darid on June 02, 2020 :: 10:34 pm

I can’t disconnect Bluetooth Jaba now. I can’t make phone calls without it being reinstalled and paired. I’ve even went as far as getting rid of the paring of it. My phone makes the call then hangs up on my wife. Not a good story to to tell her. How do I fix this problem. Bad enough it keeps going into mute mode.


You've tried forgetting it?

From Josh Kirschner on June 03, 2020 :: 1:30 am

If you forget the Jaba (Jabra?) device in your phone’s Bluetooth settings, that should take care of it. The device should never re-pair automatically. The only other way I could conceive of this happening is if there is some Jaba app you identified to control your phone calls and it is able to repair to the device.



From a guy on June 12, 2020 :: 2:59 am

A lot of problems with JBL products. Especially with headphones. This may not fix every problem but you can RESTART them… hold the power buton and the + volume button for 10-15 seconds.

No one ever seems to point this out.

Connecting Soundgate 3 to TV Adapter

From Inacio on June 21, 2020 :: 10:14 am

I use Soungate 3 to connect to my TV Adapter.
Sometimes when I push the TV button of the Soundgate it connects immediately to the TV adapter, even at a distance of three rooms.
But mostly it takes hours to connect even if it is next to each other.
The light at the Soungate blinks and blinks and then stops until I push it again. I must repeat this several times until out-of-the blue it connects by itself.
What can be the reason?


Sounds like it could be interference

From Josh Kirschner on June 22, 2020 :: 9:37 pm

A number of common household devices can cause interference with your Bluetooth signal, such as such as power cables, microwaves, cordless phones or your WiFi router.
