Issues Finding Bluetooth Bee in Blueterm

I am trying to set up a Bluetooth connection with an Android tablet and an Arduino using a Bees Shield and a Bluetooth Bee. I am currently using BlueTerm and this sketch:

#include <NewSoftSerial.h> //Software Serial Port #define RxD 9 #define TxD 10 #define DEBUG_ENABLED 1 NewSoftSerial blueToothSerial(RxD,TxD); char incoming; void setup() { pinMode(RxD, INPUT); pinMode(TxD, OUTPUT); setupBlueToothConnection(); pinMode(4, OUTPUT); pinMode(5, OUTPUT); pinMode(6, OUTPUT); pinMode(7, OUTPUT); } void setupBlueToothConnection() { blueToothSerial.begin(38400); //Set BluetoothBee BaudRate to default baud rate 38400 delay(1000); sendBlueToothCommand("\r\n+STWMOD=0\r\n"); sendBlueToothCommand("\r\n+STNA=SeeeduinoBluetooth\r\n"); sendBlueToothCommand("\r\n+STAUTO=0\r\n"); sendBlueToothCommand("\r\n+STOAUT=1\r\n"); sendBlueToothCommand("\r\n +STPIN=0000\r\n"); delay(2000); // This delay is required. sendBlueToothCommand("\r\n+INQ=1\r\n"); delay(2000); // This delay is required. } //Checks if the response "OK" is received void CheckOK() { char a,b; while(1) { if(blueToothSerial.available()) { a =; if('O' == a) { // Wait for next character K. available() is required in some cases, as K is not immediately available. while(blueToothSerial.available()) { b =; break; } if('K' == b) { break; } } } } while( (a = != -1) { //Wait until all other response chars are received } } void sendBlueToothCommand(char command[]) { blueToothSerial.print(command); CheckOK(); } void loop() { // get character sent from Android device; // decide what to do with it switch (incoming) { case '1': digitalWrite(4, HIGH); blueToothSerial.println("pin 4 HIGH"); break; case '2': digitalWrite(5, HIGH); blueToothSerial.println("pin 5 HIGH"); break; case '3': digitalWrite(6, HIGH); blueToothSerial.println("pin 6 HIGH"); break; case '4': digitalWrite(7, HIGH); blueToothSerial.println("pin 7 HIGH"); break; case '5': digitalWrite(4, LOW); blueToothSerial.println("pin 4 LOW"); break; case '6': digitalWrite(5, LOW); blueToothSerial.println("pin 5 LOW"); break; case '7': digitalWrite(6, LOW); blueToothSerial.println("pin 6 LOW"); break; case '8': digitalWrite(7, LOW); blueToothSerial.println("pin 7 LOW"); break; } delay(100); }

However, whenever I try to search for the Bluetooth Bee in Blueterm, the device does not show up.

Earlier on, I accidentally put power and ground connections in the ‘GND’ pins on the Bees Shield board (I don’t remember since I removed the wires immediately). This caused part of my circuit to smoke, but I couldn’t determine where it was coming from. The power light on the Bees Shield is still on, and I switched out the Arduino, but I still can’t seem to establish a connection.

I’m sure that everything is set up correctly, jumpers are in the right place, etc. Did anyone else have any problems setting up this kind of connection? Will I have to replace some parts?
