Bluetooth suddenly stopped working


hello

I'm using a Lenovo 3000 Laptop with Linux/Ubuntu 10.10 and so far no problems with Bluetooth.

But lately the BT suddenly stopped working throughly, even the Bluetooth New Device Setup doesn't work and it can not be the BT devices, mouse, BT headset all not working it's the Laptop's BT which is not working.

I've tried /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart and still the same.

What could be wrong, what should I do, thanks

Hi aurora72, Welcome to LQ. What does hciconfig say about the device? What kernel version are you on? Any recent updates?

Code:
# hciconfig
$ uname -r
Good luck. ;-)

This laptop 's got several kernel versions appearing on startup. That's so since I updated the Nvidia GPU's driver suit.

I don't think this problem occured after an update or anything. I don't remember making any basic update in between. I might have just installed some application such as Quicktime player, though.

UPDATE: I solved the problem after this: I have removed those mouse and the headset I'm talking about in Bluetooth Preferences section and run Setup New Device for them again and it worked, finally!

Thanks.
