I have an issue where my bluetooth randomly cuts out, like so:


I have read some existing Ask Ubuntu posts on this issue.

I followed this post: Bluetooth randomly cutting out in Ubuntu

and ran sudo apt install -y linux-oem and restarted my computer, but I'm still having the error.

I also looked at this post "No Bluetooth found Plug in a dongle to use Bluetooth"

but the output of rfkill list all was:

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

What other fixes are there to this problem?

  • I have a similar problem. It used to worked correctly and then I put "turn off" and now I can't switch it back again. – Agustin Barrachina Sep 12 at 14:37

First, run this command for switching on devices

hcitool dev

After that run this

sudo systemctl restart bluetooth

for checking status of your, Bluetooth run this

systemctl status bluetooth
  • Did not completely fix the issue for me, but at least it helped me get closer as i now have a non-dead output returned from systemctl status for the bluetooth.service. – petobens Apr 29 at 21:20
