7 Ways to fix Bluetooth not working in Windows 10

Bluetooth is a wireless network experienced within the short range. The idea was initiated to exchange the files in a more organized way with a least tangled mess of wires on the table. Remember the time when we used Bluetooth just for sharing and receiving files? But now it seems like Bluetooth is playing one of the important roles in the system. Especially, in the new Windows 10 PC where Bluetooth is used to:

  1. Play music on Bluetooth speakers and headphones.
  2. Use speech on PC.
  3. Share files with multiple devices
  4. Use a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard.
  5. Track fitness by using fitness sensor.

And what not!

And when our device doesn’t pair or work (even after connecting!) we tend to give up on our task because we aren’t able to find the problem. There’s no need to feel irritated and dishearten anymore! Here are the possible problem with your Bluetooth and THEIR SOLUTIONS!!

PROBLEM 1: COMMON BLUETOOTH PROBLEMS

To automatically fix Bluetooth problems in Windows 10 (version 1703) use the Bluetooth troubleshooter.

STEPS:

  • Select the Start button, then select the Settings> Update and security> Troubleshooter

                 OR

  • Under Find and Fix other problems, select Bluetooth> Run the troubleshooter.

PROBLEM 2: UNABLE TO TURN ON THE BLUETOOTH.

  • Firstly, check device manager to make sure you have the latest drivers installed.
  • In the search box, type Device Manager, then expand Bluetooth in device manager.
  • Press and hold, the Bluetooth radio, then select Update driver> Search automatically for the updated driver software.

PROBLEM 3 : BLUETOOTH DOESN’T WORK AFTER UPDATING.

If the device contains a customized Bluetooth profile, the device might not work after your PC is updated. The Bluetooth device needs to be paired again.

But if, the device contains a supported Bluetooth profile, then it should still be paired and work properly.

PROBLEM 4: DON’T KNOW THE PIN?

Often, the PIN for the accessory is “0000” or “1234”. If not, then check the documentation for the accessory.

PROBLEM 5: WHEN DEVICE SHOWS AS PAIRED BUT DOESN’T WORK

If the Bluetooth device isn’t working, remove the device and try pairing it again.

Bluetooth device that’s paired and not working> Remove the device> Yes.

  • In Windows 10, the status changes to connected when the device is actually in use. Whereas, the device isn’t being used, it will be shown as paired.
  • If the Bluetooth doesn’t connect even after you select Connect, go to Fix connections to Bluetooth audio devices and wireless display

PROBLEM 6: BLUETOOTH DOESN’T APPEAR IN DEVICE MANAGER AFTER UPDATING.

            Bluetooth might not appear in Device Manager if the existing Bluetooth driver isn’t compatible with Windows 10. 

  1. In the search box on the taskbar, type Device Manager, select it from the list of results, and then expand Other devicesin Device Manager.
  2. Select the unknown device, press and hold (or right-click) it, and then select Properties.
  3. Select the Detailstab, and then select Hardware Ids from the Property
  4. Look for the hardware ID for the Bluetooth radio. The hardware ID typically looks like this, where {ID}is a series of numbers and/or letters: USB\VID_{ID}&PID_{ID}
  5. Press and hold (or right-click) the hardware ID, and then select Copy
  1. Search on the web for the hardware ID you copied to try finding the name of the Bluetooth radio manufacturer. After that, visit the Bluetooth hardware or your PC manufacturer’s website to download a Bluetooth driver that’s compatible with Windows 10.

PROBLEM 7: MUSIC DOESN’T PLAY ON BLUETOOTH SPEAKER:

  • You device maybe paired but not connected. Firstly make sure that your device is connected.
  • Go to the right side of the taskbar, press and hold the volume button, then select the playback devices.
  • Playback tab, select the Bluetooth speaker, press and hold and select connect.
  • Select the Bluetooth speaker, then select Set default.

BLUETOOTH TIPS

  • Always turn off your Bluetooth when not in use. It will save your phone’s battery.
  • Disable the Bluetooth's discover ability, it will help in avoiding unwanted invitations.
  • Disabling Bluetooth when not in use also improves security, as a system cannot be hacked when it’s off.
  • Remove the paired accessory devices which may have been stolen to prevent the thieves from accessing your device.
  • Use anti-virus system to keep the hackers at bay.
