What happens if I feel my bounty question is still unanswered but someone has answered it, but that answer is not the correct one and the time expires?

    The bounty expires. It may be auto-awarded. That's it. – Martijn Pieters Nov 7 '14 at 13:32

    @Lance: why the reopen? The automatic award system is described in the linked question, I'm not really sure what more could be added. – Mat Nov 7 '14 at 16:12
  • The question isn't about the technical specifics of how the bounty system works, but is looking for input on what someone could do next once it hasn't worked for them. It's really a discussion question. – Lance Roberts Nov 7 '14 at 16:19
  • you start farming rep to prepare for next, usually 2X larger bounty – gnat Nov 7 '14 at 16:27
  • Sorry that your question got closed, some people close questions because they don't really understand the site or empathize with new users. Hope you're able to solve your problem. – Lance Roberts Nov 7 '14 at 16:48

You then will need to do what's necessary to draw attention to your question, which probably includes editing it to be better and offering another bounty on it. Here's a question that addresses a lot of that.
