Re: unable to perform bluetooth operation

Hi ngozito_david,

 

Welcome to the Discussion Boards!

 

Could you please give us more details ? What phone and what Bluetooth device are you trying to connect to each other ?

 

Kind regards,

Re: unable to perform bluetooth operation

[ Edited ]

@ kingblueModerator -

Having the same problem on my Nokia 5800xm. When I try to Activate BT in the phone it says 'Unable to perform Bluetooth Operation'.. some of the threads mention that if the Bluetooth Device Address is displayed when *#2820#  is dialled then its a Software problem ..not a Hardware issue (IS IT CORRECT ???) . As its being displayed on my device..thinking that the issue is only Software related, I Re-installed the previous version (v 52.0.007) without success. Even the latest firmware update (v 60.0.003) is of no help..

P.S. when the problem started a few days back.. the BT got activated after a FEW tries 2-3 times.. but after that no luck..-

Re: unable to perform bluetooth operation

Hi guys,

 

Those couple of occasions where I've seen this same message were caused by hw issue (even *#2820# showed the BT address) so, could be worth of letting Care point to check the devices.

Re: unable to perform bluetooth operation

Most probably its an Hardware issue, that needs to be corrected by Nokia care..

Re: unable to perform bluetooth operation

If you search this Forum or even Google for the issue.. There is no ONE sure shot solution. There are most wierd suggestions posted with posts that follow saying "That worked for me".

So, search the Forum, try one by one and see if something works for you. If nothing works, visit Nokia Care...

Check if the phone has the latest Firmware .. If its already with, then re-install the Firmware using Nokia Suite ..If this doesn't work, most probably its an Hardware issue that needs to be checked by Nokia Care technician ..

Since it is irreparable by NCC, you may ask any other Mobile repair shop as the phone must be anyways out of Warranty by now. I had the same problem on my Nokia 5800xm and was told that it will cost Rs.1200/- by mobile repair shop ...

Re: unable to perform bluetooth operation

My N97 shows the same error. If the hard reset doesn't work, your Bluetooth IC is displaced or damaged. Mine is displaced as when I shake my phone real hard or tap it, Bluetooth starts working. Up till now, this is working for me... :smileyhappy:
