Bluetooth A2DP Source gives Error 52

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Every time I try to connect my bluetooth headphones (Sony MDR-XB950BT) to my computer, I only get the "hands-free audio" which gives horrific audio quality and not the full capabilities of my headphones. I used to be able to get the full range but due to some driver issue I only get that.

 

I checked device manager and found that the Microsoft Bluetooth A2DP device was giving an error with Code 52 and that should be the source of my error. So I tried to reinstall my bluetooth drivers (I use the built in bluetooth from my motherboard, Gigabyte B450 I AORUS PRO WIFI) and even after going through every version Gigabyte had to offer, I still get the error. 

 

Is there anything I could do from here?

 

Basic Specs - 

Motherboard - Gigabyte B450 I AORUS PRO WIFI (Latest BIOS)

CPU - AMD R5 2600X

Exact same problem. Have been trying to solve it for hours now. The only difference is that mine is a Microsoft Surface Headphone. Has a terrible sound quality when connected to a Macbook Pro Mid-2015 with Windows 10 on it. Works fluently on any Surface device I have tried (even the old Surface 3).

 

Would love to find a solution to this.

Hey guys,

I had the same problem with my Phillips Bluetooth Headphones (only hands-free audio is working). In device manager I also got reported Error Code 52. I traced the error down to a broken driver signature and therefore tried to repair system files with the DISM and sfc tools build in in Windows 10. In order to repair that behaviour you will have to:

 

"Remove the headphones in windows settings in the devices tab and continue with these steps":

 

1. Run CMD as administrator (right click -> run as admin)

2. insert: "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" (of course without ") -> This will take some minutes

3. After finishing DISM you will need to run "sfc /scannow" (also without ") in CMD (also as administrator)

4. Done!

 

After this process, my headphones are working as before. I think in my case the latest update of Windows/or maybe the install of the latest AMD Radeon driver somehow broke the signature of the Microsoft A2DP Driver.

 

I hope the solution is working on your machines too!

 

Sry for my mediocre english..

This fixed it for me. Thanks!


Edit: I will note that i had to uninstall the failed driver and hit "Look for new hardware" in devmgmt.msc to kick back up the working bluetooth.
