    Can Anyone Help With This Bluetooth Issue Please?


    Hi Guys n Gals
    I have a problem connecting Bluetooth headphones to my main Windows 10 (x64) PC. I’m using a Bluetooth USB adaptor in my PC. It shows as present in the device manager, and with the correct drivers installed. After going through the ‘pairing’ procedure, Windows Settings shows the headphones as ‘paired’ but I’m getting no output through the headphones
    Going through the same procedure on my other Windows 10 PC, everything works just fine. I’m very confused (not hard lol).

    Any ideas or suggestions welcome

    Dougal,

    Lots of other users have praised the 3rd party utility described in this post - bluetooth toolset It will allow you to remove all traces of your first attempt and so hopefully it will all work correctly next time.

    Do note that you do not want to just see Paired in the Settings, Devices, Bluetooth list as that just means what it says [the setting up has been done].
    You want to see Connected.

    There's a similar long-running discussion in the Microsoft communities that I recently came across: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...5-93e96c47f7ff
    Working from the signature provided by LFLFM, I came uip the following PowerShell code, which removes devices that have paired incorrectly so the can be re-paired. Just copy & paste into PowerShell -- no downloads required!

    Code:
    $Source = @"
       [DllImport("BluetoothAPIs.dll", SetLastError = true, CallingConvention = CallingConvention.StdCall)]
       [return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.U4)]
       static extern UInt32 BluetoothRemoveDevice(IntPtr pAddress);
    
       public static UInt32 Unpair(UInt64 BTAddress) {
          GCHandle pinnedAddr = GCHandle.Alloc(BTAddress, GCHandleType.Pinned);
          IntPtr pAddress     = pinnedAddr.AddrOfPinnedObject();
    
          UInt32 result       = BluetoothRemoveDevice(pAddress);
          pinnedAddr.Free();
          return result;
       }
    "@
    
    Function Get-BTDevice {
        Get-PnpDevice -class Bluetooth |
          ?{$_.HardwareID -match 'DEV_'} |
             select Status, Class, FriendlyName, HardwareID,
                # Extract device address from HardwareID
                @{N='Address';E={[uInt64]('0x{0}' -f $_.HardwareID[0].Substring(12))}}
    }
    
    ################## Execution Begins Here ################
    
    $BTR       = Add-Type -MemberDefinition $Source -Name "BTRemover"  -Namespace "BStuff" -PassThru
    $BTDevices = @(Get-BTDevice) # Force array if null or single item
    Do {
       If ($BTDevices.Count) {
          "`n******** Bluetooth Devices ********`n" | Write-Host
          For ($i=0; $i -lt $BTDevices.Count; $i++) {
             ('{0,5} - {1}' -f ($i+1), $BTDevices[$i].FriendlyName) | Write-Host
          }
          $selected = Read-Host "`nSelect a device to remove (0 to Exit)"
          If ([int]$selected -in 1..$BTDevices.Count) {
             'Removing device: {0}' -f $BTDevices[$Selected-1].FriendlyName | Write-Host
             $Result = $BTR::Unpair($BTDevices[$Selected-1].Address)
             If (!$Result) {"Device removed successfully." | Write-Host}
             Else {"Sorry, an error occured." | Write-Host}
          }
       }
       Else {
          "`n********* No devices foundd ********" | Write-Host
       }
    } While (($BTDevices = @(Get-BTDevice)) -and [int]$selected)
