7 Troubleshooting

1. Why is the Bluetooth icon in Windows tray icon area gray when BlueSoleil starts up?

A: Your Bluetooth radio is not supported by your computer or BlueSoleil, or, Bluetooth is turned off.

2. What does "The Bluetooth device does not have proper license key. Bluetooth cannot start." mean?

A: Your Bluetooth radio does not contain a valid license key authorized by IVT Corporation, so

BlueSoleil will stop working. For more details, please check BlueSoleil online support.

3. What is Bluetooth passkey?

A: Bluetooth passkey is used in the authentication procedure for Bluetooth security purpose.

When a remote device connects to your computer, it has to offer the same Bluetooth passkey as that you input on your computer. Only when the Bluetooth passkeys from both sides are the same, connection can be set_up. A paired relationship is created after a successful pairing, and the passkey is no longer required for later connection. The paired relationship can be removed by any side.

46

4. What can I do if the connection has failed?

A: If the connection fails, the remote device may be in non-discoverable mode. Please make sure the remote device is discoverable and try to connect again.

5. Why may I not send files to my device?

A: Please make sure that your device supports File Transfer or Object Push function, and it has enough space. Some devices accept limited types of files, such as pictures and music only. Please also make sure that your file name does not contain characters that cannot be recognized by your device.

6. Why I cannot add another Bluetooth printer with the same name?

A: BlueSoleil doesn't support multiple printers with the same name. In this case, the Windows

OS cannot tell which printer is the right one. Please rename one of the printers.

7. Does BlueSoleil support Windows multi-session?

A: Yes, BlueSoleil supports Windows multi-session. Different users logged in to Windows can all access and use the Bluetooth function.

8. How do I use Nokia's PC Suite with BlueSoleil?

A: Please first make sure the version of your Nokia PC Suite is 6.5 or later. Here's how:

1. Start PC Suite, and select the connection type in Connection Manager to be Bluetooth

( IVT BlueSoleil ).

2. PC Suite connection wizard will guide you to find your mobile phone, then you can connect your phone to PC Suite via BlueSoleil.

3. Once connected, you can back up phone contents, synchronize contacts, calendar items, notes, write, send and print text messages from your PC, install Symbian and Java TM applications from a PC to a phone, and etc.

Federal Communication Commission Interference Statement

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

FCC Caution: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate this equipment.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

This device and its antenna(s) must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

This equipment complies with IC RSS-102 and FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20cm between the radiator & your body.

OEM integrator is still responsible for testing their end product for any additional compliance requirements required with this module installed (for example, digital device emissions, PC peripheral requirements, etc.).

IMPORTANT NOTE: In the event that these conditions cannot be met (for example certain laptop configurations or co-location with another transmitter), then the IC authorization is no longer considered valid and the IC No. cannot be used on the final product. In these circumstances, the OEM integrator will be responsible for re-evaluating the end product (including the transmitter) and obtaining a separate IC authorization.

20cm minimum distance has to be able to be maintained between the antenna and the users for the host this module is integrated into. Under such configuration, the FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an population/uncontrolled environment can be satisfied.

USERS MANUAL OF THE END PRODUCT:

In the users manual of the end product, the end user has to be informed to keep at least 20cm separation with the antenna while this end product is installed and operated. The end user has to be informed that the FCC radio-frequency exposure guidelines for an uncontrolled environment can be satisfied. The end user has to also be informed that any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user's

authority to operate this equipment.

If the size of the end product is smaller than 8x10cm, then additional FCC part

15.19 statement is required to be available in the users manual: This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

LABEL OF THE END PRODUCT:

The final end product must be labeled in a visible area with the following " Contains TX FCC ID: NLFGUBTC41M " and “Contains TX IC: 4023A-GUBTC41M”.

If the size of the end product is larger than 8x10cm, then the following FCC part 15.19 statement has to also be available on the label: This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
