How to Fix Bluetooth Pairing Problems

by Suzanne Kantra on December 30, 2022

Updated on 12/30/2022 with USB-C conflict information and additional multipoint pairing information.

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 logo - white logo on blue backgroundBluetooth 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 Bluetooth 5 or higher should still be able to pair with devices using, say, the ancient Bluetooth 2.1, launched back in 2007.

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 your car because your car doesn’t support the Human Interface Device Profile. But a phone and a wireless headset should both support the Hands-Free Profile, you should be able to pair them.

Usually, Bluetooth devices connect with one device at a time. However, some headphones support multipoint pairing – a feature that lets one pair of headphones connect to two devices simultaneously.

I take you through the steps you can take to get your devices to happily communicate with each other. And if you have a multipoint Bluetooth device, check out my tips on solving problems with Bluetooth multipoint pairing.

What you can do about Bluetooth pairing failures

Smarphone and Bluetooth earbuds on a table

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, it involves tapping a code into your phone or computer. Other times, you can 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 to 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. Remember that your phone or 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.

You'll need to turn on pairing mode if the device has been paired with another device. To find instructions search for: put [product name] into pairing mode. We have guides for Jabra, JBL, JLab Audio, Onn, Mpow, and Sony.

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 another.

5. Power Bluetooth off and back on

A soft reset of Bluetooth can sometimes resolve an issue. With phones, an easy way to do this is by going into and out of airplane mode. For other devices, turn off the power and restart them.

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 device. While your laptop, tablet, or phone may be the obvious choices, there are other possibilities. For instance, you may have paired your speaker to your TV or streaming media player.

Some older speakers and headphones are very simple; they just try to connect with the last thing they are paired with. If your headphones or speaker were previously paired with another phone, laptop, or tablet, turn off that other device or turn off the device's 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 (this is different from multipoint when they connect simultaneously to 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. For instructions from the manufacturer on your specific model, search: reset [device name].

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. Move away from the WiFi router

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

10. Move away from your smart home devices

Some smart home devices use a wireless technology called Zigbee. You find Zigbee in smart home hubs, including Amazon's Echo Show and Echo Plus, as well as a wide range of smart door locks, light bulbs, in-wall switches, open/close sensors, plugs, and more. Like WiFi, Zigbee devices use the same spectrum as Bluetooth devices and can interfere with pairing. Move away from your Zigbee devices when attempting to pair.

11. Move away from a USB 3.0 or USB-C port

Interference between Bluetooth and USB 3.0 Type A or USB-C is also possible. Newer laptops often have higher-speed USB-C and USB 3.0 Type A ports, so if the connection isn't happening, try pairing your Bluetooth gadgets away from the computer.

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

Whether it’s a headset, speaker, mouse, keyboard, 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.

13. Download a driver

If you’re having problems pairing something with your computer, you might be lacking the correct driver. The simplest way to figure this out is to do an online search for: [product name] driver.

14. 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 later versions of Bluetooth. If you’re not sure how to get the latest firmware for your hardware, check with the device manufacturer.

15. 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.

16. 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 > Apps > and tap the sort icon (the triple bars to the right of "Your apps."). Toggle on "Show system apps" and then select "Bluetooth" from the list. Select "Storage" and then "Clear cache." For iOS and iPadOS devices, you'll have to unpair all of your devices (go to Setting > Bluetooth, select the info icon and choose "Forget This Device" for each device), then restart your phone or tablet.

Solving problems with Bluetooth multipoint pairing

Multipoint is a Bluetooth technology that enables a Bluetooth device to be actively paired with more than one device at a time. That means your headphones could be simultaneously paired with a phone and laptop, or two phones could be paired to a hands-free car kit.

Even though multipoint has been part of the Bluetooth standard for years, there aren’t many products on the market that support multipoint. So if you’re having issues with setting up a multipoint connection, the first thing to do is double-check that your device supports multipoint by searching for “[product name] multipoint Bluetooth” or consulting your product’s manual. Once you’ve confirmed that your device supports multipoint, try these steps.

Trouble adding multipoint devices

If you’re having trouble adding a second device to your multipoint product, follow these steps to ensure you’re adding it correctly.

1. Pair with the first device the way you would with a single-point Bluetooth device. (If you’re having trouble pairing your first device, consult the list of tips above.)

2. Turn off the first paired device and pair the second one.

3. Once you have successfully paired with the second device, turn on the first device. For some products (like the Lenovo Smart Wireless Earbuds and JLab GO Work and PlayPro headphones), that’s all there is to it. Other products (like the Sony WH-1000SM4 headphones, Bose QuietComfort II Earbuds, and Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro earbuds) require installing an app and turning on the ability to connect two devices.

If you can’t connect to a previously paired multipoint device

Multipoint Bluetooth devices can connect to two devices simultaneously but can be paired with many devices. If your multipoint Bluetooth product isn’t automatically connecting to your usual two devices, it may be paired with a third device.

If you use an app to select multipoint devices, go into the app and toggle on the two devices you want to be simultaneously connected.

If you don’t use an app to select your multipoint devices, you will need to re-pair the device that has lost its connection. Follow these two simple steps.

1. Use your multipoint device with the Bluetooth device that is still actively paired with multipoint.

2. Re-pair the device that has lost the connection.

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, and Wi-Fi Direct. These other technologies typically won’t work with your phone, tablet, or computer without some kind of additional hardware.

I hope this guide has helped you with your Bluetooth pairing problems. If you know of any tips I've missed, share them in the comments below!

Bluetooth headphones won’t pair with iPhone

From Shadow Quander on June 09, 2021 :: 8:34 pm

To pair headphones that aren’t listed under Bluetooth on iPhone but they work elsewhere, power off headphones and turn power back on holding down power button for several extra seconds to force pairing. This worked for me on two different brands and two different iPhone models.


Bluetooth not turning on

So my JBL headphones wouldn’t connect to my bluetooth on my desktop but on my old laptop it worked…I had tried everything on my pc but today when I upgraded my bluetooth adapter from that crappy targus usb to a proper one plugged into the motherboard it worked straight away. So in summary targus bluetooth usb dongle sucks.


Earbud issue

From Jerry Mabe on July 08, 2021 :: 8:52 am

Only one of my right Beats earbuds provides sound.  The left has sound but is very very low or weak.  The right has proper sound.


Here are a couple of ideas

From Josh Kirschner on July 08, 2021 :: 10:55 am

Try forgetting the Beats earbuds on your device and then re-pair them. If that doesn’t work, you can try resetting your Beats earbuds. Here are the reset instructions for each Beats model:

If neither of those things work, do you have a local Apple store you can take them to for evaluation and/or replacement?


Headphone Paired with TV

From Joan on July 14, 2021 :: 10:42 am

I have a TV that is not a smart TV so I have a blue tooth transmitter connected to the TV and my headphones are paired to the TV. However, I need to get new headphones as I accidently broke the headband on the headphones I am using now.  What do I do to unpair the headphones that I broke so I can pair the new headphones, when they arrive, to my blue tooth transmitter on the TV? Will just turning the broken ones off work?


You shouldn't need to unpair

From Josh Kirschner on July 21, 2021 :: 5:35 pm

You shouldn’t need to unpair the old headphones to get the new ones to work. Just put the new ones and your transmitter in pairing mode and go from there. If you have issues, your transmitter likely has a reset button on some sort that will clear out any older paired devices.

I have two signia pure

From Ron Weaver on August 05, 2021 :: 1:54 pm

I have two signia pure charge&go; x hearing aids that I’m trying to pair with my iphone 11.  The audiologist paired them, but for some reason they quit working.  When I try to follow the directions to pair them, I never get the little pop-up that says pair or cancel.  What am I doing wrong?


Try these instructions from Apple

From Josh Kirschner on August 05, 2021 :: 7:08 pm

I’m not familiar with pairing hearing aids, which go through a different pairing process than standard Bluetooth headphones. However, follow these hearing aid pairing instructions from Apple and see if that helps you out.


TomTom sat nav to android 'phone - Blutooth problem

From Auxillis2017 on August 17, 2021 :: 12:38 pm

I have an android phone, which I can connect to my tomtom sat nav so it works “habds” free.
“Suddenly” my ‘phone is not recognised by the TomTom.
I notice that the ‘phone shows a diagramatic picture of a headset and annotates it GO 6200 (my sat nav). It appears that the ‘phone is “mis-recognised” and so will not pair. Any help welcome.
King regards, Steve


Lost device

From Jamal Alsouz on August 23, 2021 :: 10:29 am

My bluetooth speaker is paired with a cellphone that I no longer have, how can I unpair it without having the old cellphone?


You shouldn't need to unpair it

From Josh Kirschner on August 23, 2021 :: 11:21 am

There shouldn’t be any need to unpair your speaker from your old phone. Simply pair it to your new phone and you will be good to go. Some speakers due have a maximum number of devices they can be paired to, so if you’re paired it to a bunch of phones and now you can’t pair any more (unlikely, but possible), you should do a reset on the speaker. Check with your speaker manufacturer on the reset method for your device.

poor instruction re: finding bluetooth code

From Charlotte on October 28, 2021 :: 1:42 pm

Your instructions say that you may need to confirm a code (or something) but you don’t tell us where we can find that code.  Think again if I am driving and that message pops up, if I ignore then a different code pops up.  And I am supposed to know what to confirm while keeping my eyes on the road?  BTW this doesn’t always happen.  Just enough to be annoying.

Connect to Audio receiver

From frank on November 11, 2021 :: 6:01 pm

I have windows11 and had an issue of not discovering my receiver(yamahaRX-V385) I had to go into control panel by pressing Windows and S then type control panel. Click on hardware and sound. Click on devices and printers. Click add device and then on the receiver go into settings select set up, Bluetooth and setup in order for the computer to discover the device. The simple discover menu as you would use to connect to your phone to either of the two did not work. The computer did not see the signal and the receiver would quit too soon. Windows downloaded drivers once the device was discovered and needed to connect in devices menu once icon appeared.

Which bluetooth driver am I using?

From Don on December 29, 2021 :: 6:54 pm

Thanks so much for this great article.

I have a bit of a different twist.  I just downloaded a new Bluetooth driver from Intel that has the AptX capability. 

I’m using ITtunes for playback and Windows 10 is my operating system.  When I open Device Manager and look under Bluetooth, I see the new Intel driver but I also see several other types of Bluetooth.  These are:

1) Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI)
2) Bluetooth LE Generic Attribute Service
3) Bluetooth LE Generic Attribute Service (listed twice)
4) Intel(R) Wireles Bluetooth(R)
5) IOATAVX BT01 (this is my stereo amp)
6) IOATAVX BT01 Avrcp Transport (again for my stereo amp)
7) LE-Bose QC35 II (headphones)
8) LE-Bose QC35 II Avrcp Transport (also for my headphones)
9) Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator
10) Microsoft Bluetooth LE Enumerator
11) RevCB_A1

Please note that I want my IOTA VX amp to use the Intel Wireless Bluetooth(R) driver through ITunes.

I’ve also got my ITunes playback set to:

Play Audio Using - Direct Sound
Sample Rate For Audio - 192kHz
Bits Per Sample for Audio - 24

Does the computer automatically use the new Intel driver with AptX to send the music to the IOTAVX amp?  Or is there something I need to do - for example, uninstall some of the drivers in Device Manger.

Thanks so much for your advice!

Unwanted Bluetooth Pairing

From Jane Peters on August 25, 2022 :: 7:52 pm

I have an old, inexpensive treadmill with digital display. It is picking up bluetooth from a transmitter I bought to connect sound from my TV to headphones.

I can’t seem to unpair it and it is dreadfully loud also.

Any ideas?


Reset your treadmill

From Josh Kirschner on August 26, 2022 :: 9:44 am

I’m assuming you paired these in the past? Otherwise, your treadmill wouldn’t be able to pick up that Bluetooth signal. There must be a way to reset your treadmill Bluetooth settings. If you Google the treadmill name along with user guide, you can probably find instructions on how to do that for your specific model. Else, you can hard reset your TV transmitter and then re-pair it with your TV. If you don’t have instructions for that, take the same Google approach.
