Im trying to pair a bluetooth speaker to my laptop and its not working. It seems to connect and it shows up in "devices and printers" but I cant play sound out of it. Any suggestions? I tried 2 different speakers and they do the same thing. It says its connected but no sound. It keeps playing sound from my laptop speakers.

I look in sound in control panel and the speaker is not listed.

In the 'devices' screen, if you double-click on the device (PH-BT1000), is there an option to 'Play' or 'Listen'?

If you right-click on the volume control icon on the taskbar, is there a "Playback devices" choice?   [There should be]

Normally, you just do that, and select the device you want as the default.   You have to select it (click on it to highlight it); then click on "Set Default"; then click on "Apply" .... and it should then be the playback device.

See if there is an update for the bluetooth hardware on your computer. Or even if you have the latest, try reinstalling.
