Re: bh-501 and vista

The program "Blue Soleil" has the necessary drivers ... but its not free :smileysad:

I am in the process of using it to allow me to connect my BH-501 headphones to XP (laptop) and Vista (destop)

Let me know how it goes ...

Cheers

Hi..

For Pair the device.. follow the below steps.

1. Switch off the Bluetooth headset
2. Then Switch it on by hold both the Volume up key and the power on key together and press it untill u see the blue and red light glowing, once the red light glows.. it means your headset is ready for pairing.
3. search for the blue tooth devices from your laptop or PC, locate it and pair it.

4. If it is still not pairing or working. check out whether latest Bluetooth audio drivers are installed in your pc.
you can check this by going to the Device manager & Expand "Sound,Video & game controllers" and check out whether Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers are installed.

5. If the drivers are not installed kindly and install it and try your luck..

Re: bh-501 and vista

hi van,

can you goto the control panel/sounds and make sure that your BT headset is the one selected... and then make sure it is not muted, fine at 1st boot will sometime be at mute...

Re: bh-501 and vista

Was there any sulotion to this problem because i have the same problem.  I have the BH-501 and have paired it with my laptop (Vista 32).  Under bluetooth devices i see the headset.  the headset is on but when i play music the laptop speakers play not the headset.
