Putty and Bluetooth Module.

Hi,

I have recently bought this bluetooth module from ebay, and cannot seem to get it to send data to COM5 (Putty for Windows). I have connected TX(Bluetooth) to RX(Arduino) and vice-versa, Gnd to Gnd and VCC to 5V.

I am using Serial.println. Is this the problem?

Thanks, Jack

Have you paired it?

Please don't post the same question in different parts of the forum, it wastes time.

Sorry about the dupe. I thought I'd get an answer quicker.

With regards to pairing it, yes I have. I have done everything I should of done (Pair, get com port no., program, test). I'm wondering if it's either a faulty Bluetooth module, or that putty isn't the right software to be using.

You'd get a quicker forum time-out.

Imagine two people had answered the same question in different parts of the forum. That would be a waste of time, wouldn't it?

Hello Jack,

Have you figured out the solution ?

I am facing the same problem and I can't figure it out. If you have, any help would be appreciated

Thank you !!
