first sorry for my simple English.

Now I try explain my problem: My bluetooth headset Philips SHB7150 not working (propably accu) and Philips service exchange it for new one. Now when I connect the new headset with other computer with windows or android, everything is fine. First pairing and connecting was good, icon my headset show up in sound menu and I can select this as sound source. I hear sound in both mode: A2DP and HSP(mono). But when I reconnect headset I don't hear any sound in any mode. Additionally when I change HSP sound mode on A2DP system automatically unselect my headset as sound source. Until after many trails only when I set sound mode in HSP before disconnecting headset and reconnect I hear sound in both sound mode.

I have different headset (Motorola S305) and this one work perfectly. I can reconnect without any problems.

Any idea why?

Can I somehow delete any info about Phillips headset in ubuntu and do fresh start?

I hope I explained my problem well.

Having the same problem, I found this python script who seems to work for everyone.

It will disconnect the device not working, update the profile to the good parameters and reconnect the device.

It's working fine, but I'm still waiting for an update of bluez.
