All of a sudden my phone started heating up and battery would drain 100% in like 4 hours ! :/ and then after i restarted, i just can't turn my wifi and bluetooth on. If i try to turn bluetooth on, the phone wuld just keep on restarting untill the system closes down the process "com.process.bluetooth". I repaired the phone using Sony Bridge, the phone doesn't restart now, but it still heats up and I can't use Wifi and Bluetooth.
just wondering how the warranty works. as title says i live in ireland but bought my z2 from amazon.de and it needs to be sent back to the factory because i cannot turn my wifi or bluetooth on after a complete update and factory reset. rang the support and she said she would email me instructions but its an hour ago and still not received anything. does it matter if the phone was bought in germany? what sort of receipt do i need or do i even need one?
After couple of months running on the latest 5.1.1 system, neither WiFi nor Bluetooth turning on to connect to any network. Both only display "turning on" but after seconds they automatically turning off.
I recently upgraded my Ray to version 4.0.2.A.0.62. Since the upgrade the Bluetooth doesn't turn on at all, just says "Bluetooth turning on" then reverts to an off state. Prior to the update it worked perfectly. Upgrade was done using PCC, no errors, but even so have tried several repairs since and still doesn't solve the problem. Have tried factory resets, rollback to the original version, Sony Update Service instead of PCC?
So I updated to the latest software available on my Z3 from Sony a few days ago (23.4.a.1.264) then on Friday the WiFi and Bluetooth completely stopped working, I couldn't connect to my pebble and my data started to get eaten up.
Since then, I plugged it into the computer, backed up the data then ran a system repair through Sony PC companion to no avail, and booting into safe mode does nothing either.
I just picked this very nice phone up yesterday from Point Roberts in Washington State, where I have an address box I use to get packages that can't be shipped to Vancouver, BC, Canada where I live. I got it from Amazon.com.When I got home and tried to connect ot my wi-fi net work it would say turning on wi-fi, and then it would turn off wi-fi! I called SE customer support and spent an hour on the phone with customer support and did the software upgrade to android 4, which they said would solve the problem. It didn't. When I click on wi-fi it still says turning on wi-fi, and gets no further. The scan and add network buttons don't function. The bluetooth does the same thing, won't turn on. They told me to try to connect to another network, but I told them it doesn't even turn on wi-fi so how can I connect to a network?I've tried the repair function and updated the software several times, but nothing changes, it always says wi-fi and bluetooth are turning on and get no further.
I found others on here who solved the problem with software, so I'm sure mine can be solved, just wanna know how. I've even tried using it with and without a sim card in it, but always the same result. WI-FI WON'T EVEN TURN ON!SE said it is defective and needs to be either returned to the store I got it at, which is in NY, or send it in for service. I just got it, it was brand new unopened and doesn't work. Before I bought it I did an online chat with them to make sure any unit bought in the USA would still have warranty service in Canada and was told yes, any SK17A had USA and Canada warranty regardless of if it's bought in Canada or the USA. Now of course after I bought it, the supervisor at SE customer support says he thinks it won't be covered under warranty in Canada because it was bought in the US!I also didn't realize that the headset connector is OMTP and not CTIA, which my Klispch S4A android earset is and won't work. I asked Sony if they make an adaptor between OMTP and CTIA and they said they don't, later on with some googling I found out they do!
I might have to buy the Livesound earset, since it gets me compatibility and adds remote functions. Problem is I don't know if the sound will be as good as my Klipsch, which are terrific. I like the phone, obviuosly just want it to work. If it does, I will probably buy the Livesound earset.Brand new phone is apparently defective. Was not told this wi-fi issue is a common problem and is posted all over the internet.When I called back today, they said they had no record of me in the system and I didn't actually call them yesterday! Sony is now doubting Canada warranty for USA phone they previously said was covered before I bought it.I might have to pay to send phone back to store, even though it is defective out of the box.OMTP headset plug is poorly indicated on Website. I would probably not have bought it knowing it is not CTIA compatible without adapter.Being not told the truth about headset adapter availablity.
My Z3 is acting up. My Bluetooth and Airplane mode will turn on automatically and when I turn my phone on, sometimes my messaging will be open with words like: awsdt jgtuio gods. Also, today my Facebook opened on it's own and was going to post letters like above on it.
Ive been a X10 user for a few months now... I havent had any issues with this phone up until now when I decided to use bluetooth. Everytime I use bluetooth, it works for a small period of time and then hangs itself... It simply disconnects and refuses to pair again... This happens with my stereo headset and also with the Wiimote I use for playing games on the phone... At first I thougnt this might be an issue with the headset (which didnt have the best reception, choppy audio and bad quality, specially for an official SE headset) but I really noticed the issue after I started using my Wii remote to play games on the phone since I know the remote works flawlessly on the Wii itself... The problem is that it stops working, refuses to pair again and when I turn off Bluetooth, it doesnt turn on again, no matter how long I try, forcing me to restart the phone... Only to work again after rebooting and hanging again after some use...
My Samsung Galaxy S5 has an issue with the interaction with Blue Tooth paired with my Ford Escape Hybrid, the Goggle MAPs turn by Turn voice does not function until I disable the Bluetooth on the phone.
I was just wondering if anyone had tested this. Im at work right now and even if I death grip my phone I can't get my bars to drop. But if I'm at home I can get it down to say 2 bars. I know its not a fix but I was just curious to see if that would help out.
I have a torch phone and it will not allow me to turn my bluetooth on. I turn it on and it turns a light blue then when I check to see if it is working it isn't on. I recently did an update to the software and the problem seemed to occur right after this. I'm not sure the software updated correctly and I did reboot.
BB 9650 (OS 6): Bluetooth won't go off after using Bridge connection to Playbook (OS 2). The blue light continues to flash even though Manage Conections: Bluetooth is unchecked - turning the phone off and back on and turning the Playbook off is ineffective. Have to pull the battery and allow the phone to reset!
Also have an occasional problem with headset connection being blocked while using Bridge. Turning the Playbook off does not always restore it? Deleting and re-enabling devices doesn't help.
Bluetooth Connections: ProPlantronics Playbook-D125
The WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities on my LG G3 phone randomly stopped working yesterday and both connections won't turn on. I have tried to enable both connections, but the phone either lags out or does not recognize the command. This isn't the problem of the LG G3 not recognizing networks or finding Bluetooth devices, but both connections won't even enable.
I've tried factory resetting and that did not remove the issue at all.
My LG G4 (H815, T-mobile) has suddenly started shutting off Bluetooth within 6-8 seconds of turning it on. I've tried power cycling, removing the battery, booting into Safe Mode, clearing the BT cache, clearing the entire cache partition, no joy.
It's running Android 5.1. I thought the phone came with 4.4 (I got it about 3 months ago), so maybe an OTA got pushed to the phone last week? I really don't want to factory reset and hope that works.
I love my IPhone but can't believe there are so many steps to turn on and off the bluetooth. Leaving it on kills the battery to quick so I shut it of when ever I'm not using it and am annoyed by how many steps I have to go through to turn it on and off. Apple plans so many features so much better than everyone else, I really feel like they got the bluetooth wrong.
Whenever I turn on bluetooth on my iphone 4S, it keeps searching for devices. No devices found and the searching does not end. It is just in a hang state. Switching off and on the iphone does not help. What else can I do? The iphone is new.
I can't get my Bluetooth to turn on. I have a 9700 BB Bold . When I go to the Manage Connections from there down to Turn on Bluetooth, then it will have a check mark in the box on the lift side but on the right side it will say (RED X) it will NOT go (green check mark).
Can't turn Bluetooth off. Normally do this when it doesn't connect with my Nissan Navara & then turn it back on & its done the trick. Been trying all day to turn Bluetooth off,unticked Bluetooth under manage connections but but a circle is just going round & round at the side of the On symbol.
Rooted Nexus 5 running stock 4.4.4 . Until now I've had Bluetooth turned off to save battery but I now want to use it in my car. However it is grayed out in the phone settings and will not turn on. If I select to turn it on in settings, it switches to a grayed out "on" (see screenshot) and 2 seconds later goes back to off. I've checked my apps such as xprivacy, etc. and cannot find a reason for this.
BT eats batteries fast in all devices. I like the flashing blue light to let me know it's on when I want it on. Is there a faster way then me going into options, blue tooth, and disabling BT from there? I have a BT icon and when I choose disconnect from there, it seems to just disconnect the device, but leaves BT enabled.
my 4gs works fine, except.... the wi fi in general settings is not able to turn on. the icon stays light gray and does not respond to touch the bluetooth shows 'off' and then sits & 'spins' when i tap it. ive re synced, re set, etc
Today I tried to pair my Atrix with my PC for the first time and was unable to pair the devices. After several failed attempts I noticed that the Bluetooth on the Atrix would not restart either from the Widget or settings menu. Turning the phone on and off repeatedly still would not get the Bluetooth to turn back on. Previous to this attempt at pairing with my PC the Bluetooth on my Atrix has been working just fine in my car.
