  1. In your mobile go to Settings -> Wireless & network -> Bluetooth settings -> unpair your PC from Bluetooth devices then Scan for devices and re-pair the PC
  2. Follow these steps: www.androidremotepc.com/tutorial/bluetooth/

If it doesn't help you, restart the phone.

2. possible solution

If your server starts after Windows startup immediately (the Remote PC Server's shortcut is in the folder After Startup), it can cause the error: "Bluetooth is not ready". Then when you try to connect with a phone, it'll show the message "Connection unsuccesful". Right-click on Remote PC Server in System Tray Menu and restart the server (Stop server -> Start server).

After Windows startup: Error indicating about "Bluetooth not being available"

I solved this with a little trick: Try in Remote PC Server Preferences check option run server immediately after stopping (it causes that the server won't be ready at first time and then should immediately connect).
