Headphones Bluetooth pairing but no sound

Hi Guys,

Happy New Year!

As in the title my Bluetooth headphones pair with my laptop but no sound at all. I tested the headphones with the phone so I know they work. Any ideas?


PS Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section.

1. Turn on and pair your BT headphones

2. Go to : Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Under Playback > select the bluetooth headphones/device, right-click and set it as the Default Device.

3. Apply > OK

4. Test the audio output

Thanks...its strange because my headset does not show up in the playback options for me to select. Also in the network box it shows that my Bluetooth network connections is not connected.
