How to fix LG G7 ThinQ Bluetooth issues
Many people completely forget do try the simplest things. Even though simple, tricks like these are often all you need to do. In this particular case, all you need to do is head to Settings, turn off the Bluetooth, and turn it back on after a couple of seconds.
Toggle Airplane mode
If toggling Bluetooth didn’t give any results, do the same with the Airplane mode. Go to Settings, and find Airplane mode. Enable it. Leave it on for 20 seconds. Turn it off. Now try to pair your devices.
Restart your phone
Now it might be a good time to restart your phone and give it a sort of fresh start. This may help you get rid of some minor bugs and it will also boost the memory and performance of your phone. Press and hold the power button, and then tap Power off. Once your phone shuts down, again press power on and turn it back on.
Restart your Bluetooth device
Perhaps the issue lies in your Bluetooth device and not your phone. Restart your Bluetooth device as well. Also, make sure your Bluetooth device is charged.
Delete prior pairings
If none of the things previously listed didn’t make a change, now it is the time to head over Settings > Bluetooth and delete the prior pairings. You can do that by tapping on each pairing. Do this for all the previous pairings. When you are done, restart your phone and try pairing it with your Bluetooth device all over again.
Reset network settings
You can try to reset all network-related settings back to the factory defaults. This can be a bit of time-consuming, especially because all the Wi-Fi networks and passwords will be deleted, so you will have to connect all over again. However, it can be very effective. So, it is worth trying. Here is how to reset network settings on your LG G7 ThinQ:
- Go to Settings
- Tap General
- Next, tap Restart & Reset
- Tap Network Settings Reset
- Tap Reset Settings
- Again tap Reset Settings
- The message saying “Network settings have been reset” will pop up showing you the resetting for settings is completed.
Software updates fix bugs and issues. It also introduces a new set of features. When the software update becomes available, a message usually pop-ups. However, you can manually check for updates. Here is how:
- Go to Settings
- Tap General
- Next tap Update Center
- Tap System Update
- Finally, tap Check for update.
You will see if an update is available. Just follow the on-screen instructions to download and install it.
If nothing seems to be working, you should consider a factory data reset. It is a bit more radical step as it will delete everything on your device (not the files on your SD card), and it will also restore all the settings to factory defaults. Before moving to the steps of factory reset, create a backup. When you are done with the backup, do the following:
- Go to Settings > General
- Tap Restart & Reset
- Now tap Factory data reset
- Tap Reset phone > Delete All
- Finally, tap Reset.
