Bluetooth printing from Phone

  Curio 19:56 22 May 2006

Having discovered I can download photos from a Bluetooth phone on my HP 8250 printer, I purchased the relevant HP Dongle. Software was installed and Dongle plugged in. Dongle immediately started flashing indicating ready for transfer. Printer did not recognize Bluetooth phone and phone indicated No Bluetooth device found.

Checking Device Manager confirmed Dongle installed and indicated device working correctly.
HP online helpful and Advised to check passkey was correct, Security set to low and also Visible to all. Passkey set to default 0000. File type was also confirmed as OK. Still nothing works. Bluetooth in Control Panel on PC indicates Bluetooth Device not found.

Just to rub salt in the wound, son came down with his phone and Anonymous dongle, plugged in and immediately printed off a photo from his phone to my printer.

Have reinstalled in effort to resolve matter, but no joy. Can anyone give any pointers as to further checks I can make? Thanks in anticipation.
