The speaker is recognized as JBL Flip and says ready to pair. I click on it and click on pair. It fails and disappears. The bluetooth continues to search and finds it again... and I get the same results. It works when directly plugged into speaker jack.

Hi! @pancrob, Thanks for stopping by HP forums!
I understand the Bluetooth speaker is not getting recognized by your PC.
Don't worry I'd love to help you out.
Did you make any software or hardware changes on your PC?
Please provide the product number and operating system you are running on your PC to assist you better.
Please try the steps recommended below.
You have to un-pair (or disconnect ) the Flip from the first device.
Press the Start button on the JBL Flip, it will make a warning beep and turn on. The start button will glow blue.
Press the '+' and '-' buttons together, and press the 'Bluetooth' button on the JBL Flip, and keep pressed until the Bluetooth button starts blinking blue. Now the JBL Flip is in pairing mode and can be discovered by the new device.
If the issue still persists, please uninstall the Bluetooth driver on your PC and install the latest Bluetooth driver using HP support assistant.
Go to windows desktop
Hold Windows key + Letter R key.
Run dialog box would open type devmgmt.msc
Device manager window will open.
Expand Bluetooth, Right click on the Bluetooth driver and click uninstall.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Have a wonderful day ahead! 🙂

If you are using Windows 10, consider the possibility that the system is not told to use the bluetooth device for audio output.
1. go to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers
2. find your device and right click on it > select 'sound settings'
3. scroll to your device and select it, then make it your 'default' playback device
Hope this helps,
