I found a fix to this very frustrating problem. Li
Please comment and reply if this works for you so
Thanks and ENJOY!
I would like to add a comment regarding this. I bought the jambox about a month ago and it seemed to be working fine when paired with my macbook air in lion. Yesterday I started having the dreaded bluetooth error and now it won't work. I've tried numerous techniques to get it working properly but no joy.
This is unacceptable and I expect Jawbone to do something about it. This is their product and it is touted as working with OS X.
Thanks in advance for your help.
there are some options, things can get frustrating but as we speak i have muzic pumping through mine through BT. Because you get the error message (probably within the first 5 seconds you try to connect) you are in the green area. These are your options imho
- clear parameter ram
- pair and re-pair (i do this almost 5 times a day)
- run the mytalk and change something (anything, it doesnt matter what, could be the name), try clearing the list of devices it knows in the last option
- check in 'Topright Bluetooth menu -> Jambox -> sound options' if output as well as input is set to jambox
- if you have the app 'Boom' installed it might interfere with all soundoutput
let me know if this cleared the issue for you, have a nice day
Thanks for the advice, I'll give those a try, but I really shouldn't have to re-pair it five times a day to get it working. I've got better things to do. For now I'm just plugging it in through the cable. Gets rid of the latency issue too. Hopefully a firmware update or an OS update will sort things out in due course.
Peace and thanks again.
Just adding my voice to those with Bluetooth problems on Lion...
Unpairing/re-pairing the Jambox is the only thing that works for me. I find that I have to delete the Jambox in the BT settings in our Mac mini and erase the Mac mini connection in the Jambox in the MyTalk panel --- only then do things start to work again.
I like the Jambox, but this gets tedious and frustrating.
I've had it with this product. Unfortunately I bought it a little over 30 days ago and so can't get a refund through Amazon in Japan where I live. The bluetooth doesn't work and when I plug it in through the cable there's an intermittent high pitched buzzing sound. Not loud, but enough so that it's noticeable.
This is the worst product I've ever bought. It's not heavy enough to use as a doorstop unfortunately.
Having the same issues as everyone else on this forum. Device is not working and don't want to go through the rigamarole of constantly depairing and other work arounds. Feel like I've spent way to much time on this already. If you have any advice or other updates please let us know, otherwise I won't wait to return the Jambox. Too bad, was really excited about getting it but the convenience was a major selling point and it's provided just the opposite. Look forward to your response. Thanks.
