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 '19 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 '19 at 21:20
