Bluetooth is not working (maybe reconnecting ...)

by ViktorR   Last Updated October 09, 2019 14:12 PM - source

after update, on my MacBook Pro 15 inch mid 2015, from 10.14.5 to 10.14.6 my bluetooth stoped working. All of my 5 devices were listed in the System preferences -> Bluetooth, but I could only see their addresses (12 letters). There was no button to connect to any of my device.  

I tried:


  1. Removing .plist files (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist, ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/ com.apple.Bluetooth.XXX.plist)
  2. Resetting SMC
  3. Resetting  bluetooth module + Removing all devices 
 But none of them helped to solve my issue. In 10.14.6 when I clicked on Remove all devices (Bluetooth Debug option) I didn’t see any device in System preferences, but when I restarted Mac I did see them (addresses).

I hoped that this bluetooth problem would resolve Catalina, but it doesn’t. Bluetooth is still not working, only change is that after I removed all devices and after restart I didn’t see devices (addresses).

In Catalina I can only see my bluetooth mouse and when I click on connect button, I can see how it is trying to connect, but not successfully (changing text from Connected to Not Connected repeatedly ... this problem I didn't have in 10.14.6). I can only see that mouse, any other devices are not shown. 

Do you have any ideas how it could be fixed? Any idea would be very appreciated.


Thank you
