You’ve just left your partner, and all you want to do is go home and pick up your phone and check your voicemails. But your Bluetooth connection keeps dropping out, leaving you frantically searching for your phone. The problem is, that your smartphone doesn’t usually need to be on to connect to your Bluetooth speakers and headphones. But sometimes, your Bluetooth won’t connect to your smartphone. What might be the problem? Let’s take a look at why your Bluetooth keeps disconnecting.
Why Does My Bluetooth Keep Disconnecting?
The first thing you should check if your Bluetooth keeps cutting out is the battery. A weak battery can cause constant drops in connection. If you are using a smartphone, make sure that you have replaced the battery and that it is charged to at least 50 percent.
If your Bluetooth keeps cutting out, then there is a good chance that your device is defective or faulty. If this is the case, try to take it back to the store where you purchased it and request a replacement as soon as possible.
Connecting issues with other devices.
It could be that you have accidentally connected your smartphone or tablet to another device, which will result in constant drops in connection when trying to connect with that device again for further use either through the computer or through another phone/tablet/laptop/etc. This can be easily avoided by un-pausing all applications on both devices and then connecting them again after some time has passed (for example 5 minutes).
The device itself is faulty or broken:
If none of the above solutions help you with your Bluetooth problem, then there could be something wrong with your device itself such as an internal problem (e.g., broken motherboard) or a malfunctioning button/switch (e.g., broken Bluetooth receiver). In this case, contact the manufacturer of your smartphone to see if they can fix any issues with their product so that you can continue enjoying your device.
It’s a software issue:
If none of the above solutions helps you with your Bluetooth problem, then there could be something wrong with your operating system (OS). There are a number of apps that can fix this type of problem, for example, BlueStacks and Bluestacks. If your Bluetooth keeps cutting out, try to install one of these programs on your phone so that you can troubleshoot and fix your Bluetooth connection.
The device is not properly paired:
Ensure that you have paired both devices properly before trying to connect them again (e.g., the smartphone should be paired to the computer with which it was initially connected). If you are using a smartphone, make sure that you have registered the device before trying to reconnect it to another device.
The device is not properly set up:
Ensure that both devices are properly set up before trying to connect them again (e.g., pairing the smartphone to the computer with which it was initially connected). If you are using a smartphone, make sure that you have registered the device before trying to reconnect it to another device.
If none of the above solutions helps you with your Bluetooth problem, then there could be something wrong with your usage. For example: try connecting your smartphone and computer using different USB ports on your computer so that the Bluetooth connection can be made directly from your computer without any interference from other devices (e.g., Bluetooth speaker or wireless keyboard). Try turning off all other wireless devices when attempting to connect these two devices for further use (e.g., turn off/unplug all mobile phone chargers and other similar devices). Ensure that there is sufficient distance between both devices for appropriate signal reception (e.g., ensure that there is no obstruction between both devices e.g., a wall). Make sure that you are using the correct version of Bluetooth software for your operating system so as not to create any issue while connecting with the device (e.g., Windows 10 should be used if you’re on Windows 10, otherwise try installing BlueStacks on Windows 7 or 8).
The device has been powered down/removed:
If none of the above solutions help you with your Bluetooth problem, then the last solution is to power down/remove the device and then power it back on. If you are using a smartphone, turn it off before powering it back on. If you are using a computer, make sure that both devices are powered down/removed before powering them back on.
How To Fix Bluetooth Connection Issues?
Check the Connection Quality:
If the problem is in your phone, use your smartphone to check the connection quality. You can do this by going to Settings and then tapping on Bluetooth. Tap on the name of the device and you will see a screen that shows you how much data is being received and how much data is being sent. If you see an error message, this means that too many data packets are being sent to or received from that device.
Check the Device:
If there is a problem with your phone, try using another device to connect it to your computer or other Bluetooth devices. If you are using a laptop, try connecting it with a USB cable instead of a wireless connection. If you are using another smartphone, try connecting it with a cord instead of wireless. Also try connecting it with another phone if both phones have similar operating systems and OS versions (For example, Android 4 and above will work fine).
Update Your Bluetooth Drivers:
The drivers for your Bluetooth devices may be out of date or corrupted which can cause issues when saving files from one program over others (See Issue #4 below). The best way to fix this issue is to update your device’s Bluetooth drivers with new ones from the manufacturer’s website or through Windows Update.
Check if You Are Connecting to the Right Device:
If you are trying to use a Bluetooth device that doesn’t support a file transfer, you may be connecting to the wrong device. For example, if you are trying to connect your computer with a mobile phone, try connecting it with another mobile phone instead.
Make Sure Your Bluetooth Device Is Set Up Properly:
If you are using Windows 10, make sure that your Bluetooth devices are set up properly in the Settings app (See Issue #6 below). This will ensure that your devices are connecting properly and provide a stable connection for all of your files and data transfers. If you have Windows 8 or earlier versions, go through the steps in this article: How To Set Up Bluetooth Devices on Windows 7 and Earlier Versions.
Your Bluetooth connection might be frayed or even gone. However, there are a few things you can do to try to resolve the issue. If your Bluetooth connection keeps dropping out, it might be time to take your smartphone to the repair shop. After all, your phone is bound to get abused over time, regardless of what you do. If your Bluetooth connection keeps dropping out, it might be worth looking into the following issues: incorrect phone location, phone not on, and old phone not supported by newer Bluetooth technology.
What causes a Bluetooth connection to drop out?
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to communicate with each other. It uses radio waves to connect devices that are within the range of the transmitter (usually about 30 feet) and receiver (usually about 10 feet). The size of the range depends on what type of Bluetooth device you have, how far away they are from each other, and whether or not your devices are set up properly.
What can I do if my Bluetooth connections keep dropping out?
If your Bluetooth connections keep dropping out, this may be because it’s time to update your drivers or try connecting with another device. This can be frustrating when you’re trying to transfer files between one program and another. However, updating your drivers might solve the problem for good.
