Default Bluetooth will not turn on :-( - 10-06-2010, 01:10 PM

Good afternoon everyone,

I have been given a HTC Bluetooth headset to use with my Streak so I went to pair it this morning and the Bluetooth on the Streak will not turn on!?

I've tried with the widget on the home screen, within the settings screen and within the bluetooth settings screen.

Every time it says it's turning on Bluetooth but after 10-12 seconds, just goes back to showing as off.

Has anyone else had an issue with Bluetooth not turning on?

I have used it in the past to pass files to and from my laptop and as an audio gateway (as Android 1.6 and 2.1) so I know the bluetooth works.

Very confusing

Many thanks,

It may sound obvious, & you've probably already tried it, but off & back on (no i'm not in IT). Usually sorted most my glitches... temporarily! Try taking the battery out for a few minutes too.

Check all your settings associated with wireless etc.

Did it begin happening after you installed an app?

Some apps change settings without letting you know, or shouldn't change settings but do!

Other than that, the bluetooth part of the phone is duff or the software has gone pear shaped for no particular reason.

Have you tried reinstalling a backup?
