Question Z2 bluetooth problem pairing with headset

Hi all,

I recently got the xperia z2 and have been having trouble getting the z2 to identify my sony ericsson mw600 via bluetooth. I know i can pair the phone with my laptop and other devices so i dont think its a internal problem. I also know my mw600 headset works with my old phone. Any idea why the z2 might not be seeing my mw600 on the bluetooth screen?

Im not familiar with the headset but some times devices can only be synced with 1 device at a time, does it need to maybe be unlinked then linked with a new device?

I am quite sure the sony ericsson mw600 allows you to pair multiple devices, and besides i broke my other phone so wouldn't be able to unpair it.

the must go into pairing mode first, then use the z2 to scan via bluetooth and connect it.
bluetooth handfree device doesn't require to unpair just pair with another device to overwrite it.

Thank you for someone to notice it and I have the same issue with my DR-BTN200. It shows connected and music plays from external speakers and if it successfully connected then every single notification you get the phone keeps disconnecting it from the headset and plays music from external speakers and then connect it back to bluetooth headset.
HUGE BUG

Don't know if this helps but i have the smart wireless headset pro - mw1 and that works fantastically well. Had some trouble before with my Xperia V but they are all gone now with the Xperia Z2. Just put the headset in paringmode, made the phone visible, erased my old Xperia V from the MW1 and all was good.

Hi all,

Thanks for the input! I managed to solve it. My samsung s3 never needed the mw600 to actually go into pairing so i had no clue the mw600 even had a pairing mode! After some checking I found out i had to hold the power button for 5 seconds for it to go into pairing. After that my z2 picked it up fine and works just like before.

Thanks again to everyone that replied!

All bt devices need to go in pairing mode before they can be discovered. For your S3, I am guessing it is the first phone you paired with the headset brand new? Cause most devices will go straight into the pairing mode when turned on for the first time, hence that's why you didn't know or need to activate it.
