    New Fire 8 Won't Pair Wireless Headset

    When attempting to pair SB220 wireless headset to my new Fire8 I get a message "wrong pin". However, it never asked for a pin. I was able to pair an old headset (kinivo) but its battery is nearly dead so I want to use my newer SB220 headset.


    Any ideas on how to get the SB220 to pair?


    Thanks.

    Are you holding the button down on the head phones long enough to pair them, ? Hold it to the fire says" paired"

    Yes, my older headset pairs fine. Only the newer one won't.
    I would give it the typical 0000 pin if it would ask for one but it just states that the pin is wrong without ever asking for one.
    Strange

    Considering the SB220 paired just fine on my phone, my wife's phone, my iPad, etc. I tried to pair it again today to the Fire8. SURPRISE !!! It paired just fine this time. Maybe it just needed to be rebooted which is what I did before trying it again today.

    Thanks for your help Now, I'm a happy camper
