Before you do anything technical, check if your Bluetooth is enabled. Sometimes we are so frustrated with the problem we overlooked simple things. If you do not see a Bluetooth symbol at the top of the smartphone screen, then it is disabled. The device is connected to your phone when the Bluetooth paired icon is displayed in the status bar.

Wrapping up

All of these solutions should help your Bluetooth to function properly. If you have any questions please comment below.



  1. I go this cell phone: LG-H873. My son use it for a wild. But for a reason that what with don’t know. The link with his beats headphone and his cell phone, doesn’t work anymore. I try all those up suggestions. But nothing works.

    I call the compagnie and the ask me 300$ plus taxes to repair it. What a crap!

    Somebody have others suggestions?

  2. The strange thing with my lg g6, connected with my Kenwood car audio is that making calls doesn’t work (receiving calls, phonebook, etc all works fine). Note:with the lg g4 I could make calls.
    Any suggestions? Thx!

  3. To fix this issue you need to rename each connected device from the original name. You do this while the device is connected to phone. My Subaru bluetooth device name was renamed to “Car 1”, same idea for any device such as speakers or headphones.

  4. Trying to clear my bluetooth cache. None of your steps match any items I have on my phone- home screen? apps manager? Apps drawer? I can go into settings and look up apps, but there is no bluetooth option and if I just go into settings I can turn bluetooth on and off, but there are no settings nor any menu that allows me to clear a cache.
    Photos would be helpful so I know where to go.

    1. I was having bluetooth issues with my lg g6. The bluetooth function should be a system app. Check in your app manager for additional options to show different app categories and select system apps

  5. My G6 was fine until the Oreo update. Now I get the bluetooth no longer working error regularly. The error occurs even when no app is open or using bluetooth. I have unpaired and repaired, amongst other fixes, with no luck. Help!

  6. My G6 was working just fine until i was forced to update to Oreo 8.0.
    Now, when using bluetooth with either my earbuds, or my car, it all works ok as long as I don’t double tap the screen to wake it up.
    When I double tap the screen , or if I single press the main button on the back, then the bluetooth turns off on the phone.
    I have talked to Verizon several times, have done a system data reset twice, they even sent me a new refub phone, and it does the same thing (after it updated to Oreo 8.0).
    My wife has the same phone with Oreo 8.0, but doesn’t use bluetooth, so i tested her’s , and it does the same thing.
    That’s 3 phones with the same problem.

    There is a broken update file.
    Verizon doesn’t know what the problem is.
    LG says it’s Google’s driver.

    Here’s a clue:
    When doing a System Data Reset, then it reboots, and then you sign in with your gmail account, for about 10 minutes the bluetooth works just fine.
    I can turn on/off the display and bluetooth stays on.
    After about 5 or 10 minutes, the problem starts to happen again.
    During the setup, the phone is downloading files.
    I believe one of the files is not compatible with Oreo 8.0.

  7. Recently upgraded G6 to Oreo on bell Canada. Serious lag on Bluetooth connect instantly fixed with unpair/pair as recommended.


  8. my LG K1000 2017 sometimes does not connects to my car bluethoth and I can’t force it to connect/ I did a fectory restart but didn’t help/ Any idea??
