    Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    I have Google Nexus 7. I am having problem connecting it to my wife's Galaxy S II. It keeps telling me "paired but not connected". I have reset it to factory setting, but still no luck. I tried connecting with my laptop, but getting same problem. Please tell me what is going on with my tablet?

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    Hi friend,

    This problem may arise due to problem with the Bluetooth Drivers of your Google Nexus 7.

    >>Just update the drivers of your Bluetooth.

    And also there may be chance of problem with the bluetooth of your Wife's Galaxy S II.

    So, to check that just try to connect both of your devices to some other device one by one.

    The one which shows problem in connecting has the fault.

    Then just take that to nearest Service Centre and get that repaired.

    BEST OF LUCK

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    Hello dear,
    there is no problem with your device..
    And also there is no need to restore your device....
    Enable the pc Bluetooth ..and also in your device...
    Then click on the Bluetooth icon in your pc
    then click on the SEND OR RECEIVE FILE...
    then send or receive files from the device or from the tab...
    To remove the security then click on the Bluetooth icon and then go to settings ...
    THEN MAKE YOUR DEVICE DISCOVERABLE BY ALL DEVICES...
    BUT THERE MAY BE SOME PROBLEM DUE TO UNAUTHORIZED USERS...

    THANK YOU.......................

    HI BUDDY,

    Just enable your Google Nexus 7 bluetooth and try to connect to your PC bluetooth.
    If the connection is not established then make your device discoverable by all devices or simple just change the bluetooth settings to default.

    You are done.

    hello friend,

    Samsung Galaxy phones cannot be connected with anyone's bluetooth device unless it is made visible to them , problem is not with your nexus nor with galaxy s2 , just go to the Bluetooth settings in samsung galaxy s2 bluetooth settings and click on enable bluetooth , after that you can transfer files...

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    hello friend,
    As you said that bluetooth is not working in your device..
    it means that some files of bluetooth is missing in your device..
    to cure out this problem you need to reinstall the bluetooth driver in your device..
    then try to connect it...
    if it is not connected yet it means that there is some circuit problem in your device.. to solve this problem you need to contact to the service center to solve this issue..

    thanks..

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    i am appreciated of your help but all comment above are useless

    yes, we know how to find and discover device,

    the problem is , although the device is listed, it is not possible to connect to it,

    even though before it was working like a charm.

    in other forums, there was listed an issue regarding BT and Nexus 7,


    is there any way how to rewinstal BT driver ? or any help in that matter?

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    sorry boyzz ..again...

    I appreciate your enthusiasm to help, but read the problem again.

    We know how to find BT device, we know how to turn it on and how to pair it.


    The problem is, on the Nexus 7, there is apparently bug, which doesnt allow to reconnect BT device for the second time.
    Nexus can discover BT device, but doesnt want to connect to it.

    The question is: Is there any way how to reinstal BT driver ? or some .apk that will reset BT ... whatever ?

    thanks for comments.

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    hey
    1. check your bluetooth visibility is on or not through settings option if not turn it on.
    2. delete some existing pairing.
    3. pair with the device with whome you want and transfer your data.



    thanks

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    To work Bluetooth properly

    • First check weather there is any virus present in your device by using the antivirus software.
    • If there is no virus then check for updates if find any then update your device driver
    • The updating the drivers will solve this problem
    • In Google nexus 7 almost all the users facing this problem.
    • Then update version may solve this problem
    • If you want to use the Bluetooth you can also downgrade the device to 4.1.2 from 4.2
    • Then the Bluetooth will work fine. in this version.

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    Hello friend,


    I will help you to solve your problem,don't worry just follow as i say.

    1.Firstly try to do the opposite work that is if you are trying to send the apps.

    2.Now try to receive the files by making your device to 'Discoverable' tab.

    3.If still facing the problem then it is the hardware problem of your device

    4.So try to take it to the nearest service center so that they will change the defected part and install the new one.

    All the best...........................

    Re: Bluetooth is not working on the Google Nexus 7

    Hi, I had a similar problem whereby my nexus 7 could see my other paired devices but would not send or receive files.
    The way I sorted the problem was to
    1. delete all my paired device's,
    2. Ensure both devices were discoverable
    3. Select the file you want to send and then click send via Bluetooth
    4. Search for available devices and select as appropriate
    5. On the receiving device click accept file.

    Note. Ensure you hasn't paired the device as this seemed to be the cause of m my problem
