    Default Beats wireless not connecting

    Hi, i got my Samsung Galaxy S5 yestetday. I tried to use my Beats wireless, but they're not connecting. They work great and connect to my S3. Blue tooth is turned on on the S5, the beats are flashing red, but the phone can't find the beats. Any suggestions?

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. It's not showing up in the list when it's scanning. My Beats pill works fine, however that is NFC.

    And it is set to pairing mode, not connected to anything around already? Might not go in pairing mode if connected to another device?

    do you still need help? i was just having the same problem but solved it. go to your settings and click bluetooth and you have to check the box where it says only visible to paired devices and it will switch to visible to all nearby bluetooth devices for 2 minutes and then at the bottom press scan and then hold down your button on the pill and it should pop up.

    Hi KillerKlown. I just got a pair of Beats Wireless. So, what you are doing is simply turning them on into pairing mode. This is when the red light flashes slowly. What you need to do is turn your headphones off, and then hold the power button for about 5 seconds. Hold down until you see the LED blinking fast between blue and red, kind of like a police light. Then, it is in scanning mode, and your phone sould pick it up no problem.

    Call and Music Audio should both be checkmarked in the GS5 Bluetooth settings for the device. This should be the default settings though if I remember correctly.
    I have LG Tone Infinims and there is an LG app in the store that gives me more options on my headset like reading text messages, announcing the caller and such. There could possibly be a Beats app for more functionality though I've not personally checked.

    Make sure (sync) is marked as enabled.

    Excellent instructions. Thanks XanderonG. My Beats by Dre have been sitting up for the last 4 months collecting dust. I had to resort to some cheap Target Sony joints. When those went bad (over time the wiring gets loose and eventually you lose the connection, typically last about 2-3 months going to gym 4 days a week) I had tried one last ditch effort with the Beats to no avail until I came across this post and reply. Once again, thanks XanderonG for my Beats have risen from it's coma.

    It helps to know where the power button is. It is not on the "pill" it is on the left ear bud. That worked! Thanks!!
