Bluetooth Manager

by dljf341e / May 7, 2005 9:01 PM PDT

I purchased an HP IPAQ in October of 2003, and I'm just now getting around to trying to install the Bluetooth that I got at the same time. I have everything on the PC green across the board, but when I try to go to The Bluetooth Manager on my PPC, I get "The Bluetooth Radio failed to turn ON due to insufficient driver memory available. You must perform a normal reset before you can turn ON The Bluetooth Radio." I've tried soft and hard resets, I've been to Ambicom's site and redownloaded the correct driver for my device, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Bluetooth several times and I still get the same message. Do I need a memory card, or am I just doing something wrong? Oh and also my PPC wants to use inbound COM port 8 and outbound COM port 5 and will not let me change it. (dunno if it's because I cannot access Bluetooth Manager or not)

My IPAQ died. Thank God for the 2-year service plan I had on it. Soon I'm going to get the updated model though and I might still need help.

Bluetooth manager Ipaq 2210 and Tom Tom Navigator 5
by pfabbio / July 2, 2005 4:37 PM PDT
In reply to: Bluetooth Manager

the pockep PC doesn?t connected with the GPS Bluetooth. The Bluetooth manager starts, but, few seconds after it stops itself, speaking that the Bluetooth must be activated. And the Bluetooth is activated. I use Tom Tom 5, and choosing the NMEA don?t change anything. It?s always absent the connection beetwen the pocket PC and the GPS Bluetooth.
I have read in an internet forum that Tom Tom (3 or 5) blocks the port com5. The com5 is the port that Bluetooth use for connection. In Tom Tom 3 the problem is been solved, taking away some dots to a particular file. In Tom Tom 5 I haven?t read anything in term of solutions, but only as problem.

Identical Bluetooth error
by Robmo / December 22, 2005 2:51 AM PST
In reply to: Bluetooth Manager

I get the same error on my iPAQ H1940 (Windows Mobile 2003 with built-in Bluetooth). It worked perfectly for 6 months, so there is no compatibility problem (and no recent software installations), but I get the error opening the Bluetooth Manager even after a soft-reset.

I decided to do a hard reset and, before restoring any data, I tried to open the Bluetooth Manager - same error. There was nothing in memory besides the OS, so I'm sure this isn't a memory issue.

Any help would be appreciated!

Did you swap out the PDA or card?

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
