These steps help identify and resolve the underlying cause. After completing each step, test to see if the issue is fixed. If not, continue to the next step.
Does the device you're pairing with support the same Bluetooth protocols as your LG Optimus S?
If not, you won't be able to connect to that Bluetooth device.
Be sure your Bluetooth device is compatible with Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP 1.2, AVDTP, AVRCP, DUN, FTP, GAVDP, GOEP, HFP 1.5, HSP 1.2, OBEX, OPP, PBAP, SDAP/SDP, SPP, and Stereo Streaming.
Note: Refer to the Bluetooth device's user manual for compatibility.
Bluetooth may be turned off on either the LG Optimus S or the other Bluetooth device. Be sure Bluetooth is enabled on both devices.
Is the Bluetooth device in range?
The Bluetooth communication range for most devices, including your LG Optimus S, is about 30 feet. Be sure your devices are in range.
A soft reset deletes any temporary files that may be causing the issue.
Removing the pairing, restarting your LG Optimus S, and then re-pairing the Bluetooth device refreshes and updates your connection.
Note: To optimize device performance, be sure your LG Optimus S is running the most recent device software. Check for software updates.
