bluetooth - incorrect PIN

    I bought an inexpensive bluetooth speaker. Whoot!

    When I try to pair with an older tablet (android 4.4.2), I get this message on the tablet:
    "Couldn't pair with 14:15:EF:56:28:2A because of an incorrect PIN or passkey."​

    What does it mean? Is there a way to fix this?

    There are no controls on the speaker to set a PIN or passkey. The tablet does not ask for it.

    fyi. I was able to pair the speaker with a newer phone, though the speaker instructions say the bluetooth name will be 'T-speaker', but the actual name on my paired list appears differently as 'T-sperker'.

    Does the Android 4.4.2 tablet pair with other Bluetooth devices OK, like headsets? Maybe there's a compatibility issue with the tablet?

    Sounds like there's a typo in the BT speaker's firmware. I have seen that before with cheapo devices from China.

    yes, I had previously paired the tablet with a different speaker. And just now, I paired the tablet with my phone (it did ask for a PIN)
