MacBook Air :: Bluetooth Not Working - How To Re-establish The Connection

Mar 13, 2010

I have Logitech MX5500 bluetooth keyboard and mouse connect to my Air via Steermouse.

Past week, the bluetooth is acting weird. When waking from sleep mode, sometimes they connect, most of the time, they won�t. I click on the bluetooth logo to manually connect, but the bluetooth option pop up 30 seconds later, not instantly.

I had to restart my Air to re-establish the connection. Anyone else encounter similar issue?

MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth Stopped Working After Crash?

Apr 13, 2012

So I was on Windows 7 via Bootcamp on my Macbook Pro and it suddenly gave me a blue screen after starting to watch a youtube video.  

I use both a Apple Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, and after the crash neither of the accessories seem to work anymore on OSX or Windows. What's strange is the hardware is still accessible in the bluetooth menu, it just doesn't function at all. The hardware also turns on still, but the light just blinks and seems like it's not detected. 

I'm really hoping I didn't mess up the bluetooth in my machine somehow o.O

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.

MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth Randomly Stops Working / Magic Mouse Does Not Respond

Jun 26, 2014

bluetooth on my 2013 MBP. I have a magic mouse and it randomly stops responding. At first I thought it was a problem with the mouse itself. I changed the batteries,To solve the problem and to get the mouse to work again, I have to actually restart my computer.  

Then I realized that when my magic mouse acts up, if I open the Bluetooth preferences, in the spot where the name of my computer should be is this weird message that says "do not localize, name not available" So I've finally realized that the problems I'm having aren't with the mouse but actually the Bluetooth in the computer, either it's a hardware issue with the Bluetooth hardware or the driver is defective. Again, when I restart, I'm able to use my magic mouse again. And when Bluetooth is acting up, when I do try to open Bluetooth preferences, I get the beach ball and everything starts to hang.  

I'm attaching pictures of what the Bluetooth preferences screen shows under normal operation with the name of my MBP and showing the mouse is connected and a picture of what the Bluetooth preferences window shows when it's acting up.  Is the Bluetooth defective?

Software :: Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Stopped Working / Itunes Stopped Working

May 13, 2009

I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...

Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...

OS X :: Bluetooth Interface Not Working After Upgrade?

May 14, 2009

I have an iMac with 1.6 PowerPC G5 and am running OSX 10.5.7. I just received a notice to upgrade OSX and did so. Now I have lost my wireless keyboard, and when I put my mouse on the header of the desktop to open anything all I get is the dreaded beach ball. I can't open my airport, bluetooth, volume control or anything on the desktop header. I tried to go through System Preferences (which I could open) but when I try to open bluetooth there all I get is the beachball and have to force quit.

Hardware :: Bluetooth Mouse Stopped Working

Jan 8, 2010

I just bought a MacBook Pro about a week ago, and installed WinXP SP2 through Boot Camp. Everything has worked fine up until this morning when my BT mouse suddenly stopped working on both Mac OS X and Windows.

I fixed the problem on the Mac OS X by trashing a preference file, and the mouse now works perfectly.

It still does not work on Windows, though. When I try to install it, it locates the mouse, connects, but the system tray displays the following message: "A problem occured during hardware installation. Your hardware might not work properly".

I have a feeling it is a software problem. I tried reinstalling the Boot Camp software, but it didn't work.

Mac Pro :: Bluetooth Module - Keyboard Not Working Properly

Feb 23, 2009

I have had my Mac Pro for a few years now, and I rewired the bluetooth module when I first got it. I then had Airport installed about 3 months ago, and had to rewire it again because the "geniuses" at Apple didn't know the wires were labeled incorrectly. I just moved my computer downstairs and my Apple Bluetooth keyboard is not working correctly. It lags, repeats letters, etc. Upstairs on one desk, it worked fine. Down here, on a different desk, It's acting up. My keyboard is on the left middle of the desk, and the computer is on the floor on the right side. Total distance is less than three feet, with a file drawer inbetween. It works if I put it in my lap, but not on the desk. I just opened it up to check the wires again, and they are tight, and right.

Hardware :: Bluetooth Keyboard Quits Working

Aug 19, 2009

I did the OS X 10.5.8 update recently and now I can not get my Rocketfish bluetooth keyboard to work. I hit the connect button on the keyboard and select connect in the bluetooth menu on my desktop; the icon shows that it is connected, it even says it is, but no response. I've tried restarting, turning the keyboard off and on...nothing. Fault of the update? Fault of Rocketfish and it just ironically quit working after the update? The model I have is this one. [URL]

OS X :: MS Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Not Working In SL?

Sep 12, 2009

did a clean install of Snow Leopard on my 2007 Macbook, it appears all went well. However, my MS Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 will not connect via Bluetooth. Based on a search elsewhere I installed the SL compatible MS Intellipoint software for the Mac but it will not work. It is "on" and "discoverable" but will not connect.

Anyone else have this mouse (or another BT notebook mouse, even) and get it working?

OS X Mavericks :: Bluetooth Sound Output Not Working?

Aug 24, 2014

I have a mid 2009 13 inch MBP and am trying to output sound through a bluetooth device. 

The bluetooth device is a BCK-08 Slim AD2P Stereo Bluetooth Receiver


Once connected as a device, nothing shows up in sound output though. 

I can easily connect it to my iPhone 5 and output stereo music sound through it so I know the bluetooth device is working fine. 

are there any external tools I can use to assess the situation? I seem to recall the old bluetooth setup assistant would ask what you wanted to use the device for while setting up.

Windows On Mac :: Bluetooth And IR Not Working When Running XP On VMWare Fusion?

Mar 24, 2009

I have a MacBook Pro and sometimes run VMWare Fusion / XP so that I can sync some older Nokia phones I have (that only run on PC Suite).However, my older phones don't utilize can only sync with Bluetooth or IR.I opened up the Control Panel and looked for a "Bluetooth Devices" icon, but couldn't find one.Then I opened up the Nokia "PC Suite" and Connectivity window and it gave me the option of clicking (ie: selecting to turn ON) Bluetooth and IR, but when I did, it said that this function was not available.What am I missing?My MBP obviously has all the Bluetooth and IR whistles, but when running VMWare Fusion / XP, the computer seems to disavow any knowledge that these options/functionalities are installed and working on the Mac side.

PowerPC :: Powerbook G4 17" Bluetooth Modem Is Not Working?

Jun 13, 2009

I have been using my phone as a bluetooth modem on my PB for quite some time now, but today I get an error saying it is unavailable. But it is a different message than when my bluetooth on phone is off. I have a HTC Touch Pro, Alltel (CDMA). The reason I use bluetooth is because I don't know how to use USB tethering (which would be nice as bt makes my phone quite hot). Anyways, If anyone can help with either problem, it will be GREATLY appreciated. I am currently posting this on my phone, as I have a 10hr car ride and no comp.

Mac Mini :: Ir Remote And Bluetooth Not Working / Result Of Bad Repair?

Sep 17, 2009

I have a late 2009 Mac mini that I bought in March. 2 weeks ago I tried to use an apple remote with it and it would not work. Apple change the IR board on the mini. After 10 days I picked my mini up from the apple store and I noticed 4 marks from when they opened the mini. Ripped aluminum gouge marks on the bottom of the case, the back of the case by USB port does not line up anymore. I brought it to there attention but did not make a big stink and left. I have open a few mini's before (not this one)and know how it is easy to mess up.

When I got home I tried to use my bluetooth devices and they would not work, I tried the magic mouse, track pad, KB. I called apple to trouble shoot and they said I have to bring it back in for repair after 20 minutes of trouble shooting.

Intel Mac :: Built-in Bluetooth Suddenly Stopped Working?

May 18, 2012

My iMac's built-in bluetooth suddenly stopped working.  Can I troubleshoot or replace it? It is an early 2008 Intel iMac.  Suddenly the Bluetooth logo changed to the one with the jagged line through it.  Bluetooth no longer shows in System Prefs.  In the hardware list under Bluetooth it now says, No information found.

MacBook Pro :: Disable The Built-in Bluetooth And Enable A Bluetooth Dongle Instead?

Mar 4, 2008

I have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard that I want to share between a PC and MBP via a DVI/USB KVM switch. I think I can do this by plugging a USB Bluetooth dongle into the KVM's USB input.

If I use the MBP's built-in bluetooth then when I switch from one computer to the other via the KVM, the keyboard and mouse will stay paired with the MBP; but if I disable the built-in hardware then the dongle can provide the bluetooth capability and be switched between the computers.

IMac (Intel) :: Unable To Login / Bluetooth Keyboard Not Working

Jun 23, 2014

My iMac recently shows a "low battery" warning on the keyboard batteries. 

The iMac's hard drive had just been fixed by a shop and the OS re-installed. To my surprise I didn't need to do anything to get it to recognize both bluetooth keyboard and mouse - it just worked! Wow. 

Until yesterday. I took out the keyboard batteries, charged them, and put them back in.  

Now I get the login prompt where I have to enter a password. The only problem is, I can't enter a password without a keyboard! And it doesn't recognize the keyboard.  

I tested the keyboard with my MacBook Pro - it works just fine. So I believe that somehow the iMac thinks it's still paired with the keyboard, while the keyboard knows nothing about this. And between those two things it doesn't work. 

I restarted multiple times, and tried to start from another partition by holding down option - the problem is the iMac doesn't recognize the keyboard at startup either.

This isn't directly related to macbooks but if I want to use the bluetooth built into my computer to connect to my non bluetooth printer can I buy any USB bluetooth dongle to plug into the printer ( Kodak all in one 5300) or do I need some specific kind? All the ones I look at don't mention anything about printers just connection between computers and phones.

On my MBP, I have tried both XP and Vista and they work well. I have the Bootcamp 2.1 update installed and no missing hardware/etc. Currently, I'm using Vista64, but XP32 had the same problem.

I pair my Logitech MX900 BT mouse using the BT Control Panel applet and it finds the mouse, pops-up "installing drivers" and everything works well. In the "services" tab for the BT device, it shows a general HID mouse/keyboard.

Intel Mac :: All Bluetooth Devices Stop Working - Configuration Utility Does Not Open

Jun 27, 2012

I've seen 4-5 times where all bluetooth devices stop working all at once, and the Bluetooth configuration utility does not open, so the only solution is to shut down by pressing the power button.Sometimes, restarting once is enough to correct the problem. Other times, I have to do it again and hold down the shift key when I press the power button, and OS X sees the keypress and forces a safe restart.

Windows On Mac :: Getting Motorola S805 Bluetooth Headphones Working In Windows 7

Jul 19, 2010

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 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
