BT Shield doesn't enter pairing mode.


I have a BT Shield attached to an Arduino Uno with no pins jumped or attached to any external devices. I am running the sample “slave” code and when I do so, the device never enters pairing mode. I say it doesn’t because I don’t get the red led blinking - just the green one. Also, when my computer searches for bluetooth devices, it doesn’t see it.

Is there some sample code that initializes the board to a known state? It worked once before and I would like to get it going again.

Is there some sample code that polls the state of the board so I can see what is happening. I have seen reference to the BTSTATE stuff, but I have no idea how to get that info from the board.

Thanks for any help.
