If you have a problem establishing a Bluetooth connection with a particular device, try pairing another device. If the connection is successful, it means that there is a compatibility problem with the first device. So try to change the device or ask the technical support center for help.

Restart the device

If a device faces a problem, restarting or restarting is the simplest solution.

  1. First, press and hold the power button for a few seconds. The device will vibrate.
  2. After that, the phone will restart.

Now make a new Bluetooth connection.

  1. First, access the list of applications on the screen. Choose "Settings".
  2. Then select Connected devices.
  3. Now go to Connection preferences> Bluetooth
  4. Activate Bluetooth mode.

Now try to pair the Bluetooth device and the Google phone:

  1. Go to the 'Settings' icon and open it.
  2. Click on 'Connected devices'.
  3. Activate Bluetooth by clicking on it.
  4. There is an option to pair a new device. Click on it.
  5. In the list of devices, select the one with which you want to create the connection.
  6. Then check whether the pairing was successful or not.

If the problem is not yet resolved, continue to the next step.

Software update

It is really important to keep the software up to date. It will bring new features, but not only. It will also come with bug fixes and improved phone performance. To update the software:

  1. Go to the "Settings" of the phone.
  2. Below you will find System. Click on it. Then go forward.
  3. Tap System update.
  4. If a software update is available, it will appear here.
  5. Download and install it.

Safe Mode Option

Sometimes, if a new application is downloaded to the phone, it may cause a Bluetooth connection problem. When the phone is in safe mode, only the preinstalled applications are run and nothing else. So if there is a problem with an external application, putting a device in safe mode will help you figure it out. If Bluetooth is working properly in Safe Mode, one of the third-party applications is causing the problem. You can install the applications one by one until the problem is resolved or you can choose to reset the factory data (see explanation below).

  1. When the phone is on, you must press and hold the power button. When the power off message appears on the screen, release the button.
  2. Now you have to keep the device off for a few seconds. Then a message 'Restart in safe mode' will be displayed on the screen.
  3. Finally, click on OK.

Resetting the phone and Bluetooth connection in the car

  1. First, go to the "Settings" of the phone.
  2. Click on 'Connected devices'.
  3. Then go Bluetooth.
  4. Press the "Forget" option.
  5. If your car and phone have already appeared, select the name of your car and click on "Forget". All previous connections will be deleted from the phone.

Once everything is finished, try to establish the connection again.

Perform a factory reset

A factory reset is the last step when the other steps do not work. Before performing the reset, make a backup of all important data.

  1. First, go to the "Settings" of the phone.
  2. Then find System and click on it.
  3. There will be options for 'Reset'. Tap that.
  4. Click on 'Clear' to delete all data.
  5. Finally, give permission to go ahead with the 'Reset'.
  6. Enter your password or PIN code. Confirm it.
  7. It will take a few moments to complete all of the steps and the phone will restart.
  8. Once the reset is complete, you will need to set up your phone as a new device.
