I use several Bluetooth devices with my phone. Today I tried to pair a new one and was shown this dialog:
Bluetooth pairing request Device NWP-F110 Type the pairing code then press Return or Enter Cancel Pair
No keyboard pops up. If I tap around inside the dialog, nothing happens. If I hit
Cancel the pairing fails. If I hit
Pair the device is registered in my Bluetooth system settings, but the app that works with it is unable to access it. According to the manufacturer, a passcode is necessary and apparently Android thinks so too, but I'm unable to enter it.
If I continue nonetheless and try to setup the device, the app searches endlessly. I'm never asked for the pairing code again until I manually forget the device in the system settings, yet no device is able to work with it.
Googling only shows me how to add the device as a trusted device, I'm unable to find any similar problems for Android 5 (although it might be because the OS is so new). Any tips?
I've confirmed that this is specific to my Nexus 5 running Android 5 - my Samsung S3 pairs with the device almost instantly and without trouble.
