Logitech X50 is paired but won't connect to a Laptop. Have tried uninstalling, turning on and off, speaker close to laptop, fully charged, Win. 10 updated. It used to work about once in every three attempts but now doesn't ever connect. It may be a co-incidence but on a couple of occasions wiggling the plug seemed to cause some static followed by a connection, it's only been used a few times indoors.

Could you be a little more specific as to "the plug"?

If the device is not outdated it should work normally assuming a Wi-Fi environment is not overriding the Bluetooth radio. If the Bluetooth device on your system, whatever it is, has a strong signal and compatible you should be able to go to Settings-devices-Bluetooth and pair the device, which you say it is.

Once it is paired, a compatible device should connect automatically when it is in range. If it doesn't connect automatically, the selecting the device and using the "Connect" button should reconnect.

Make sure you are not trying to pair with more than one device.

It's a 3.5mm auxillary plug i.e. as an alternative to a Bluetooth radio connection. Today I moved the computer and speaker away as far away from any metal or electronic devices and it worked a couple of times for a couple of seconds and then stopped so it's looks more and more like a faulty speaker. Another oddity is that on recent occassions when I've removed and re paired it the icon appears with a partly correct title i.e. X50 but the word stereo is added and the icon shows headphones and a microphone which again suggests to me that there is a fault in the signal coming from the Speaker. Will attempt find another Bluetooth enabled device and see whether it works with it.

I will have to test but I don't believe a Bluetooth device, when run as a wired device, will connect. So don't leave the wire plugged in during testing.
