Help my Bluetooth has dissappeared!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

I had the problem where the bluetooth icon has the zig-zag line through it, so I rebooted but now It seems i have no bluetooth!! I've tried resetting the SMS (or whatever its called). I've also tried booting up without the battery.

Help!! I need to fix this because i'm not sure what else to do because I usually use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard as my MacBook is plugged into a monitor.

Thanks
Chris

The Bluetooth module might be broken. It's been known to happen:

If it's under warranty, it will be repaired by Apple. If not, you can get a micro-USB bluetooth adaptor like this:

You'll probably get one cheaper than that though.

Replace the bluetooth module. It is probably faulty. You can find out more on Apple Support too.

Hope I've helped.
