I'm trying to connect my bluetooth headset to a MacBook Pro (my work laptop).
(It's an Anko/Kmart neckband with earphones and mic, which is working perfectly with all other Windows/Android devices).
On my Mac, I can see the headset in System Preferences > Bluetooth.
When I hit Connect:
- "Not Connected" changes to "Connected", the headset appears briefly in System Preferences > Sound, while I hear the "connected sound" in my headset,
- immediately followed by "disconnected sound", while the "Connected" changes back to "Not Connected", and the headset disappears from System Preferences > Sound
It won't stay connected for more than a second, often less than a second.
Any idea how to fix this?
But this time I can't see it in System Preferences > Sound at all, and therefore no sound through the headset.
After more tries (ie. cliking like crazy), it stays connected and the device stays in System Preferences > Sound. Now it works perfectly!
I guess my question is now, is there any way to make this connecting process more reliable? (Or an auto-retry so I don't have to click it 100 times before it stays connected?)
