    Pairing New Bluetooth Speaker BREAKS pairing w/ old BT speaker


    Greetings,

    I got a new BT speaker for the wifey. Wanted to test it on my laptop first. Worked great. Removed pairing, gave her the speaker. I went to repair my old speaker, it pairs, but disconnects if SLEEP or REBOOT happens. When it tries to reconnect -- fails. In Action Center you can watch that speaker name momentarily TWITCH in and out of view.

    I've tried unpairing/repairing. I've tried throwing out all Bluetooth drivers and rebooting. I've tried a BIOS update on that Lenovo. I'm certain the hardware didn't magically break in coincidence with the pairing of the other speaker.

    Am I missing something? Did an SFC, did a troubleshooter. Nada pinata.

    Sometimes I have a Bluetooth device that is paired but does not want to connect. What works for me is to select the device and then select Remove device. After I do that I can re-pair again. Then the device will connect again.

    Hello @The Pool Man,

    Run the following commands to see if anything stands out. Copy ALL the below AT ONCE into a Command Prompt and press Enter . . .

    Code:
    
    powercfg -DeviceQuery Wake_Armed
    powercfg -DeviceQuery Wake_From_Any
    powercfg -DeviceQuery Wake_Programmable
    PowerShell.exe powercfg -GetActiveScheme
    powercfg -LastWake
    powercfg -Requests

    Post the results.

    I hope this helps.

    Correct. And that's usually my solution. The problem (this time) is I must do this EVERY TIME. Which suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

    The discussion has EXACTLY the same scenario, as described here --

    "My symptoms:
    - Previously working bluetooth speaker (UE BOOM 2 in my case) stops connecting
    - Windows 10 'Bluetooth and other devices' menu shows the device as Paired
    - Pressing connect makes it attempt to connect but fails then it goes back to Paired
    - Remove device hides the device from the menu, but as soon as you turn bluetooth on and off, or restart the computer, the device comes back
    - You pull your hair out."

    So there's hope.

    (I wonder if that person did what I did first. That they paired a different speaker. The un-paired it. And the hidden issue is that it actually doesn't unpair at all but create a conflict. That's where my hunch is.)

    Hey Peeps,

    I wonder if this is a simple-ish system cache scenario? As in I force clean a certain area of the cache?

    NEVERMIND.

    I tried to do a restore and that is going to force me to reinstall Windows. Sometimes PCs reaaaaaaaaaaally suck.
