How to use a service. Error "Check whether the service is registered in the AndroidManifest"

Dear all,
I am a beginner in Xamarin and I am trying to develop my first Android app.
I have to use a third party SDK to connect and receive data from a barcode scanner via bluetooth.
I created a new Xamarin.Forms project and a new Library binding android project.
I followed the poor documentation for the SDK but when I call a function which should search for bluetooth devices, I get this error:

{Java.Lang.IllegalStateException: Check whether the service is registered in the AndroidManifest

}

This is my Manifest, as suggested in the documentation I added permissions and enabled the service.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="-----schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0" package="com.companyname.TestJar.Android">
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN" />
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW" />

  <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="21" android:targetSdkVersion="27" />
    <application android:label="TestJar.Android">
      <service
            android:name="com.bim.bluetooth.BluetoothService"
            android:enabled="true" />
    </application>
</manifest>

Is the error related to the com.bim.bluetooth.BluetoothService service?
Did I register the service in the right way?

I have a test project if you want to see it, just ask me.

Thank you in advance

Fabio
