IPhone :: Bluetooth Audio Not Working Since 5.1.1 Update?
May 29, 2012
Since i updated my Iphone 4S to 5.1.1 my bluetooth audio does not work with my pioneer avic930bt head unit. Phone calls work fine over the bluetooth, but i cannot stream the audio to the pioneer. Yet if i take my iphone to my wifes Acura, it streams fine.
Dell BH-200 Bluetooth Stereo headset with mic doesn't work with new ICS (Android 4.0.4) in my Xperia Neo V after ICS upgrade, I am able to pair it and Phone Media works with it but not Audio, I mean to Say, Unable to answer calls using the headset. In Bluetooth Menu it is connected for both Phone Audio & Media Audio also.
Phone Model: SONY ERICSSON XPERIA NEO V Model No: MT11i Build No: 4.1.B.0.587 Bluetooth Headset with Mic: DELL BH200
It is working fine in my Pre Installed Android Gingerbird edition
So ever since I updated to Lollipop in March (I'm with MTS) my Bluetooth audio with my pioneer double din stereo in my truck only works for about it a minute and a half then the signal seems to go weak and it gets really choppy and skips really bad. If I pause the song and wait 30 seconds itll sound fine again but only for about another minute and a half. Bluetooth audio works fine with my little Bluetooth speaker.
Received the 5.1.1 OTA update on 01 August. Most everything is running smoothly. However, since the update, streaming audio through my car's head unit via Bluetooth has stopped working properly. The music has a slightly increased tempo, and it skips every few seconds. There's also some static in the background. Listening to music (with Play or stock App) on headphones works fine.
Before updating my iPhone 4S's software to 5.1 the Bluetooth connected to my vehichle's Bluetooth radio and worked perfectly. Now if I receive or make a call, the Bluetooth connects and rings through, but I can't hear them and they can't hear me. Also, my music will no longer play through the vehicle (which worked perfectly before the update). The song title shows up on the vehicle's radio but no audio. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the bluetooth but nothing seems to help.
PS On a side note, this update made an amazing difference on my battery life on my iPhone 4S. I used to charge my phone every night and have about 40% remaining at the end of the day...now it's about 85% left at the end of the day with the same amount of usage!
I was prompted to have a software update by PC Companion with build no. 4.1.B.0.587 and it was successfully installed in my phone. However, I noticed that I am unable to listen to music, I can't hear my phone ringing, The receiver of my calls cannot hear my voice (low sound), No sound on notifications, no sound for the alarm and slower wifi connection. I can only obtain sounds if I connect to an earset. For your information, volumes settings were checked and found to be set at almost 80% max level. Is there a change in the sound settings?
As we all know, the iPhone can TRANSMIT audio via bluetooth, but is it possible for the iPhone to also RECEIVE audio? Particularly from a TV or computer (assuming they also have BT)? Any know if this is possible, and if so, how to do that?
I'm having audio issues with my 3gs when bluetooth is turned on. I'm running 3.1.2 and jailbroken. My BT device is a Jabra Stone.
When in the car I connect my 3GS to the car and let my headunit control the audio. After about five minutes of playing music the music will stop playing from the car and start playing through the BT earpiece. I can still control the play functions through the car's headunit. If I turn off the headset the audio returns to the car speakers. I can't find a setting on the phone to NOT play music through BT.
On all my Windows Mobile phones in the past you could select which services to associate with BT. Seems with the Iphone it is all or none. Anyone know a workaround?
My iPhone 3GS used to work well with a Motorola H700 headset and the bluetooh in my Lexus. All of a sudden, I could connect with the H700 or the Lexus and place a call but there was no audio received or sent even though the screen in the Lexus said it was being sent/received. I have checked all settings; I have removed and re-setup the iPhone on both devices and to no avail. Is there something I am missing? I know the bluetooth system in the Lexus works because i can connect my Morotola SLVR to it and get audio both ways.
iPhone5 drops audio (music) playback to the handsfree built into my car.Â This happens about 40% of the time and after a few seconds.Â I have to disable bluetooth, wait and reenable.Â I've seen it drop after longer, but typically it's seconds into connecting and starting playback.Â Before upgrading to iOS 7.1.1 this never happened.Â Phone is placed in cup holder in center console so signal strength should not be an issue.Â
Not sure if the phone's handfree part would still work.Â I am suspecting that it does not.Â
I have updated my phone and since the update bluetooth does not work, i.e you press turn on bluetooth and it shows the "turning on" but then it just returns to the turn on bluetooth screen in wireless and network settings.
I am unable to connect iPhone 3GS to car audio system via Bluetooth. When I turn in bluetooth in settings (in iphone) the icon appears on the top bar, but as soon I turn away from settings screen the bluetooth icon disappears. I have been trying to connect to my car audio system via Bluetooth which used to work properly a few weeks back.
After upgrading to 5.1.1 - my handsfree kit connects with iPhone still fine, but it has become impossible to hear any calls through it?! Whereas, I used to have an option to "choose audio output" (iPhone, speaker, or handsfree device), there is now only the standard built-in speaker option - as though no Bluetooth were connected. The handsfree device (Blueant S4) is connected and contacts synced, and still allows me to make calls - and yet, the audio of the phone calls can only be from the iPhone itself.
My iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1.1) no longer displays the audio source selections after successfully connecting via Bluetooth in my car. It appears that the Sources button has been replaced by a FaceTime button that I have not activated. Any suggestions for correcting this so I can talk hands free?
handsfree bluetooth completely not working after the Gingerbread update? I have an 08 Titan with the built in bluetooth and everything worked perfectly on Froyo. Since the OTA update, I can pair and connect but can't actually hand the call off to bluetooth. I try selecting bluetooth on the in call screen and it seems like it tries but I get no audio at all and it just kicks back to normal phone call mode. Speaker works.
I just got a new phone about a week ago. Today I was texting noticed that it was having shortages in the clicking. When I played a game the sound wasn't working. Later that day my dad called and the phone wasn't playing my ringtone. Now it will not work at all with any sounds. I have reset all my settings on my phone and turned it on and off multiply times. It doesn't seem to be working. I did try putting my headphones in and turned my music on and it was playing through the headphones but when I took them out it wouldn't play.
I have paired my HTC One "AT&T" with my 2012 Toyota Highlander. During the process I setup it up as a phone plus audio device. I can receive and make calls just fine without issue.
The problem is when I try to play pandora. No audio at all. Whats strange is thats its actually paired, i see the music symbol plus the connection strength bars on my console. It does not display any artist info or songs. When I play a song in pandora no audio on either my car or phone. Whats even stranger is I can use my car to skip songs in pandora but still no sound.
I have checked everything. Made sure bluetooth audio is setup in pandora. I have deleted my phone from toyota and the connection from my phone and repaired back up. Rebooted my phone.
I've seen hundreds of topics about this, but they're all very old and possibly irrelevent given the state of the android platform. My G1 is running Cyanogenmod 5.0.8 with firerat's AnySPL patch. I bought a bluetooth headset(Wireless Blue) hoping to listen to music and play videogames with it, but then I tried it and it wouldn't give the desired results. After a little research, I found out about A2DP. I'm aware that this mono bluetooth headset does not support A2DP. Is there any way to get audio output to my bluetooth headset without A2DP?
i bought my nokia c3-00 two weeks before, i have connected my phone via bluetooth to my car audio (ford figo), there is no problem in connecting the phone, i can make calls and receive and use all the features of the phone, but i coudnt play my music /mp3 files via blue tooth to the car audio. earlier i was using samsung star 3g, and there was no problem in it.
I can not get music to play via bluetooth in my cars. When I go to the bluetooth setting there is no option for media audio. I have a gs5 with lollipop. The cars I am trying are 2010 Chevy Traverse and a 2012 Chevy Cruze. Is it the car bluetooth? I found on my search where it looked like others have been able to do it on these vehicles.
I just bought my first smartphone , a Galaxy S5. While I new to smartphones, I am not new to tech. In my car ( a 2015 Subaru Forester) I was powering my S5 with the USB cable plugged into the car's USB port. I had the phone playing Pandora. I sort of assumed that I would get the music signal on the USB line but found that the enabled BT was overriding the USB so I was getting the music with my radio set to BT-A. The problem was that the every few seconds the volume would drop and the phone would make two beeps. If I disconnected the USB cable and ran off battery, this issue went away.
On further inspection, I noticed that on every volume drop with beeps, a USB connection notification was appearing in the notification lists. I just wanted the USB for power but it seemed to be trying to connect over and over and each time, the notification was interfering with the audio. I could not find a setting to stop the S5 from trying to connect to USB data.
I have 9 9550 and it will not Send audio over my Bluetooth connections. I have deleted and added Several times but No luck. It does Work when I Connect those devices to Other receivers. Must be a Settings in the Phone or something is Broken.
I have a new iPhone 6 with IOS 8.1.2 and have the same problem that affected my previous iphone 4S with IOS 8.1.1: when audio is turned off using the hardware switch on the left side I am still able to play audio from my video library or other apps like whatsapp or similar. Even if I go into settings >> sound and look at ringtones they are able to play (also with earphone). Furthermore it happens that recording videos in silent mode doesn't record the audio but only video.
I'd like to use my E71 for streaming music via Spotify and I have been using a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter with various speakers and headphones, but the sound quality is always bad. The sound quality is equally as bad when playing high bitrate mp3s via real player, so I don't think it's just Spotify.
There is also some hiss produced, but this can be mitigated by having the E71 volume turned up to maximum and using an inline volume control on the headphones to turn the volume down. But the audio quality is still bad and seems to be missing a lot in the mid range.
If I were to get a Bluetooth headset or a Bluetooth to 3.5mm adapter so that I could use my own headphones, would this improve the audio quality as it bypasses the 2.5mm plug on the device completely, or is the audio still going to be bad due to some underlying problem in the way the E71 decodes MP3s?
