Failure to connect bluetooth

Ryan7402Ryan7402 Member Posts: 2 New User
I have an Acer 15 CB515-1HT-P39B. When I first purchased the chromebook I could easily pair my bluetooth headphones. Recently I started receiving a failure to connect when trying to pair them. I checked the headphones by pairing them with my phone and had no issue. I turned the bluetooth off and on with both my chromebook and the headphones and still received the failure message. I also restarted the chromebook and still received the same message. I then did a power wash on the chromebook and the headphones once again paired with the chromebook up until recently when I started having the same failure message. How can I fix this without having to keep power washing?

    These are great ideas and thank you for your suggestions but I have done all of these things already and while the power wash did work it only worked temporarily and then after awhile I started receiving the failure to connect again. I was just trying to see if there is a fix to keep from having to power wash every time I receive a failure to connect message?

    If its working after the power wash and later its not working then its an issue on the update i guess. 
    1. To update Chrome OS, select the Status Tray.
    2. Select Settings.
    3. Select About Chrome OS.
    4. Select Check for and apply updates.
