MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth Not Working - Pairing Unsuccessful To IPhone 5 Or Headphones
Dec 3, 2014
I am having trouble with the bluetooth on my MacBook Retina Display (software is up to date). My MacBook will not connect to my iPhone 5, nor will it connect to the bluetooth headphones I just purchased (Sony MDR-XB950BT). When I try to pair the devices to my MacBook, nothing comes up in the field of recognized devices, except for other laptops around me. Sometimes, my iPhone will show up quickly but then it will say the pair was unsuccessful. My headphones have never appeared on the devices list. However, I can connect my headphones to my iPhone perfectly fine.
I just received my 13" mbp and its amazing but I am having trouble pairing it with my ipod through bluetooth. In bluetooth settings they are both on and are both discoverable so I'm not sure what's going on.
like a lot of mac lover him having trouble pairing a clone copy of mac aluminium bluetooth keyboard. on a pc under xp no problem and no pairing number required. with my mac osx snow leopard. i was able to paired twice switching from keyboard pairing where my code is accepted with the enter and the second way is where you have the + and - and the list of your bluetooth device listed. i get to the point where i have to enter the paired code but the enter never work. so by switching and closing and trying to pair with both method at the same time i was able to have my keyboard working. Until i reboot or mac goes to sleep. If i had no sucess i would give up, but i been able to make it work twice,,, i don't get it. I have experience bluetooth a long time ago. And usually bluetooth is very easy specially with bluetooth 2.0. him using the 78 keys aluminium top and white plastic bottom with 2 AAA battery. report as vk bluetooth keyboard.
I have a Macbook Pro 13" (Mid-2009) running Windows 7 32-bit via Bootcamp. I was trying to figure out how to get my Motorola S805 bluetooth headphones to work in Windows 7, and the difficult part was that Windows 7 doesn't include the necessary A2DP bluetooth profile in the stock bluetooth stack. You're supposed to get it from your bluetooth adapter vendor, which apple doesn't seem to include in the Bootcamp drivers.The solution was to install the Broadcom/Widcomm bluetooth driver version 126.96.36.19900. I found a number of websites with this driver, but I wasn't sure if they were reputable or not. I eventually found the driver I needed from Gateway, which I was willing to try
I have a late 2007 24" Al iMac, 2.4GHz, with a BT Mighty Mouse. Tonight, for the first time ever, I got two separate dialog boxes titled "Bluetooth Pairing Request", one from Ana and one from Lydia. Neither of these are my names. I recently moved into this apartment complex. Could the pairing requests be coming from a neighbor?
To answer myself, I think it is coming from a neighbor. I just went into the BT menu and clicked on Set Up Bluetooth Device. It didn't find my MM, but it did find a couple of mobile phones with the above names. Anyway, I rejected those two original pairing requests. I also have Airport turned off. So I don't think anyone can access my iMac.
I have a Power Mac G5 made in 2004 that has no bluetooth hardware installed. I have ordered a D-link DBT-120 USB Adapter that is supposed to work with Mac computers. Also i have the OS 10.5.8 running. My question is, are there any instructions for pairing the mac wireless keyboard with the D-link or will it connect automatically?
I have an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (aluminum). Right now it's paired with my MacMini + HP LCD.
Sometimes I connect my Macbook Pro (MBP) to the HP LCD.
Whats the easiest way to transfer the keyboard pairing to the MBP (and vice versa). Or is there a way to share pairing between the Mini and MBP, so I don't always have to un-pair, pair, un-pair, pair, etc. ?
I often run into pairing problems when switching the keyboard between the two macs. For example, sometimes my keyboard will refuse to pair with the MBP.
It's simple, I want to print wirelessly via bluetooth, no USB dongles!
I have the HP Bluetooth card inserted into the printer so there's no problem with that. Everything was setup smoothly but for some reason, the two won't connect.
The devices were recognized and setup, then I went to pair them and they wouldn't connect. Suddenly they did connect for about 30 seconds (I could see the Bluetooth sign with the three dots in the middle, indicating that a device was paired; and yes I made sure all other Bluetooth devices were disconnected to avoid any confusion)
I used to have all my data on my MacBook and since I bought the Air I started transferring everything to it. Everything was fine until I tried to hook my iphone on the usb and sync it. The iphone drops the connection with the itunes and the whole syncing progress cancels. I've tried every possible advice I found in other forums but nothing worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, I tried installing earlier version of itunes, I restored my iphone (on my other mac), I manually deleted some itunes program files before reinstalling the new itunes....nothing nothing nothing. I keep getting error messages like:
"ITunes could not connect to the iphone because the pairing record is missing" "Application AppleMobileDeviceHelper quit unexpectedly" "ITunes could not connect to iphone because an invalid response was received from the device" And every time i try to restore iphone from the air i get an error(6).....
While everything works great on the old Macbook, the Macbook Air seems to have problems connecting with the phone. The funny thing is that even if the connection between iphone and itunes drops, I can still manage to "see" the iphone from "iphoto" and import pics on my Air. I really don't know what's going on here and there seems to be no one that knows what I should do. Furthermore, when i plug my scanner on the air, it doesn't respond at all. It's as if the usb slot ain't powerful enough to connect with those devices. The scanner also works great on my old Macbook.
First off, I'm doing this on a MBP bought in June of '08, running Windows XP in VMWare fusion off of my bootcamp partition. Also, my Logitech MX Revolution mouse pairs up perfectly fine.
Well, my MX Revolution used to work on my XP partition a while ago, but I hadn't booted up directly into Windows for a while and was just using VMWare Fusion. I recently installed a new game on my XP partition and used bootcamp to directly boot up into it, but it wouldn't work.
I kept trying to use the Bluetooth Devices program in the Control Panel, which kept leading me to using the "Add Bluetooth Device Wizard." I keep using "Don't use a passcode" and it tells me it pairs (when I press the connect button on the bottom of the mouse), but the mouse does not work.
I then kept searching for updates for the Apple Bluetooth drivers, but everything was up to date.
So I decided to go into control panel and go into Add/Remove Programs and tried manually uninstalling that said "Bluetooth Drivers." Unfortunately, I may have screwed something up here haha. I can't find anything to replace those drivers I uninstalled now. I think I've created more problems than I've solved...
Also, when I try and use Logitech SetPoint and use the connection wizard, it just tells me "Please connect Bluetooth USB device" so it's obviously not recognizing the internal Bluetooth receiver (and I made sure it's connected in VMWare, AND I've tried it booting directly into the XP partition!)
I got a quick question about bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse. For some reason I need to pair 2 of each to my iMac. I know I can not pair 2 IR remotes, I learned it the hard way now I have an extra remote laying around.
I guess the keyboard and mouse would work since they are bluetooth but if anyone did it before it would be great to know.
im going to be buying a macbook pro in a couple of weeks and wanted to pick up a set of bluetooth headphones to go with it for when i listen to music and online radio stations on my ma i dont wanna break the bank on this but i want something that will last with pretty good sound
I have a bluetooth remote presenter. It has the usual keys (next, previous, volume, play/pause, start default music player) and it also has a small touchpad / trackpad with left and right buttons, scrolling buttons.
The remote is great and it served me well under Windows and OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. Now since I bought a new machine with Maverics, I can't pair it. The bluetooth utility looks different on Mavericks. Certain things missing, such as making Bluetooth discoverable or not in the way of simplification of things or oversimplification of things, where there seems to be no access to Bluetooth device details and no way to add device without pairing code.
The remote is recognized as mouse with keyboard, which makes things worse, there is not only no code on the device, even if there is one (or if it would except 0000, 0000000, or similar), I have no way to enter it.
Unfortunately Maverics made things simple but useless for some bluetooth devices. It's unnecessary.
Seems like I will be stuck with Snow Leopard on one of my machines forever.
When I look in console on SL, here is what I see:
2014-06-28 8:23:11.268 AM System Preferences: [establishKernelConnection] Received an error from IOServiceOpen() - 0x10000003. NULLing out io_service_t.
There is an entry like this every time I try to pair.
The Bluetooth manager window says -- "Pairing failed"
When I go to Options, it shows the field to enter code. No matter what I enter there or if I leave empty, I won't be able to pair.
Otherwise BT works fine on Maverics, I have Apple keyboard, Logitech kayboard, Apple and Logitech trackpad and audio device connected, no issue.
The Remote presenter works also fine and I tried to re-pair it with other non-Mavericks machines and works fine too.
I have a pair of Bose on-ear headphones [URL], and am interested in using them with the A2DP from the iPhone 3GS. Is there some kind of bluetooth receiver I can add on the end of the headphones to make them pick up my iPhone's signal?
I can't seem to get my Macbook Pro 13" 2.26Ghz (OS 10.5.7) connect to my iPhone 3G (OS 3.0) via bluetooth. In the Bluetooth Setup Assistant the macbook sees the iPhone 3G, but they don't connect after I accept the connect on the iPhone 3G. The codes on the Macbook and iPhone are the same and, therefore, should connect.
I've searched the Apple Discussions (support) but there is no answer there.
I could answer this myself tomorrow morning by trying it out on my fianc�e's new MBA but it's in the bedroom and she's asleep. Chances are I'll forget by tomorrow so I figured I'd ask here.
My Unibody MacBook Pro (Rev A) can use the microphone in my iPhone headphones when they're plugged into the audio out port. The volume controls on the headphones also work. Is this also true for the audio out socket on the MBA?
If yes then it should be pretty easy to make a mono audio input source by hacking an old set of iPhone headphones. I'll probably just get some kind of USB audio in adapter but this could always be an option.
Is there any way I can use my Motorola HT820 headphones with my PowerBook G4 17" ? When i try to pair it, it tells me "The device set up process was interrupted" or "Failed to set up the headset. headsets are not supported on your Bluetooth hardware."
When i listen to anything with headphones and then want to unplug the headphones and listen to whatever im listening it.. it wont work.. it never does.. i have the older version of white macbook.. got it in september.... Anyone know how to fix this?
As the title states, is anyone having trouble using headphones using windows vista under boot camp? I've tried 3 different pairs and none seem to work....the sound menu states that headphones are plugged in and working however all sounds are still coming out of the speakers, which are also not loud even if turned up to the max.
the sound on my macbook stopped working yesterday. I tried rebooting it and nothing changed. There is no red light in the headphone slot either. The sound doesnt work with headphones or without. What could be wrong with it?
my MacBook Pro audio from the headphone jack just decided to stop working. The weird thing is, in system preferences, the computer is detecting that I've plugged in headphones. I can even control the volume and click play/pause from the control on the headphone wire, just no audio.
I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.
i am using macbook air and i wanna sync my iphone 3g by using bluetooth. But it seems i cant connect it. From Iphone , how do u send a pictures or music using bluettooth to my MBA or other mobile phone?
