Some Bluetooth devices can be paired to multiple devices at once, but may have limitations on the total number of devices it can be paired with at any given time. You may try performing a factory reset on your Bluetooth device to see if this allows for proper pairing thereafter. Refer to the instructions for your Bluetooth accessory for help with performing this type of reset.

Resetting your device to factory defaults will erase all data, and your Bluetooth device will need to be re-paired with any other devices it was previous paired with. This is something to consider before proceeding with this reset step.
