Bluetooth headset stops working suddenly

My Bluetooth headset stops playing audio after about 15-20 minute and I can't get it working unless doing a reboot. First it stops playing audio but it's connected, and after disconnecting and trying to connect again, it won't connect till the reboot. I also noticed if my bluetooth is turned off I can't find/connect to the headset!!!

I checked dmesg, journalctl and systemctl status bluetooth.service but there's no related error in there. I also turned off USB auto-suspend feature (by adding usbcore.autosuspend=-1 to /etc/default/grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root rhgb quiet") but it didn't solve the problem.

I had Kali2 before fedora 23 and I didn't have any problem with Bluetooth. I think the problem started after a kernel update or something, I'm not sure.

I have a Lenovo ideapad G580 laptop with a creative Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset.

  • Make sure that your headsets are not muted.
  • Make sure the volume level of your system should be not set at low.
  • The sound/audio drivers that you are using are properly updated
  • And also don't forget to change the sound settings from speaker to headphones.
  • Last and best option is to use hacks given in Lenovo G580 Laptop Manual to troubleshoot this issue.
