    I have a fairly cheap bluetooth headset : Tecnix-BO31, I have had this connected to my laptop before, I recently “forget” the headset and now I’m trying to re-connect but to no avail, I have tried resetting as per suggestions but this has no effect. I am connected to my phone but cannot connect to my laptop. I have switched my phone off so as to not to interfere with my laptop, do you have any other suggestions.

  6. I didn’t turn up my volumn on my tv when i paired the headphones to the bluetooth transmitter so now i can bearly hear any sound coming though headphones how can i fix my problem i have GOGROOVE BlueVibe 2TV bluetooth headset

  7. I have the Willful MX BT 5.0 headset. I use it primary for video calls on my Windows 10 computer (Lenovo). I’ve used it for about 7 months without any lasting trouble although I have had to reset it a few times. I do not connect it to any other devices because I don’t want to “confuse” the bluetooth connection. Now suddenly it will not reset to the computer. I have followed the instructions here, have restarted the computer and the headset, gotten to the flashing-red-and-blue pairing stage and waited for MX Headset to appear … but the computer finds only the MICROPHONE version of MX, NOT the audio input. I need to receive audio via the headset! Any help?

  8. I have Pioneer SE-S3BT and would like to factory reset it since my device couldn’t detect it even in pairing mode. What can I do to reset it?

  9. I have a pair of COWIN E7 bluetooth over the ear noise canceling headphones. Recently, they stopped working with my Android box and my Samsung TV. It says they are paired but I cannot connect with the devices. I love these headphones, they have a great sound with deep bass. I keep getting a message “cannot connect with E7”.

  10. I have a Vtech IS6100 Bluetooth headset which used to be paired with my old Vtech landline phone system. I inadvertently discarded the landline phone system without first deregistering the headset. I purchased a new AT&T landline system (which I believe Vtech actually manufacturers and should be compatible with the IS6100 headset), but I can’t seem to register the IS6100 with it because it is still registered to the old (now discarded) Vtech landline system. How do I deregister or reset the IS6100 so I can pair it with the new AT&T system?

  11. Can you help with SODO MH5 headphones?

      Highlight the chosen device and press the Options function.
