Hello Vivek_230!

 

Welcome to the Support Forums! Smiley Very Happy

 

In the Control Panel window find Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices section and open it. Then select the Sounds and Audio Devices. A new Window should open, select the Audio tab (top line of buttons) and click on it.

In the Sound Playback section: from the drop down menu, are your Bluetooth Speakers listed as the audio output device?

Thank you for being a part of the Lenovo Family,

Catie

Thank you for posting a reply.

 

I don't see my Bluetooth Speakers as audio output device in the drop down for Sound Playback.

 

I can pair them using the bluetooth dongle but dont see in the drop down. Please can you help me know how to get it fixed and working.

 

Thanks.

Vivek

Sorry Vivek,

 

I was away for the weekend. What exact model of T61 do you have? please do not post your S/N. The machine type can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the unit.

 

Are the bluetooth speakers you are using A2DP compatible?

Hi Catie,

The machine type sticker is torn out. I can try to find the machine type if it is absolutely necessary. Let me know pls.

But yes, the bluetooth speakers are A2DP compatible.

No problem, What bluetooth dongle are you using? I want to check the specifications and make sure it is compatible with the SW50. Not all bluetooth devices/cards/dongles have the A2DP capabilities. Since your Bluetooth pairs the device but does not play the sounds, I am thinking this may be the issue.

Thank you for being a part of the Lenovo Family,

To find the Machine Number you can go into the BIOS by pressing F1 as the computer starts and its a 7 digit number ****-***.
