Hi,

I am seeing this problem for a while - Bluetooth not available and along with that whenever I change my settings it returned to old setting when I restart my Macbook Pro.

Anyone please!

Thank you.

What do you mean by "not available"? Are you not able to turn it on? This could be a variety of things, worst case would be a defective bluetooth module. Did you already try doing a PRAM reset?

First, it would sure help if you told us what model MBPro you have and what year it was made -- and what version of the OS you're using.

Suggestions and thoughts:

Open System Information (utilities folder) and click "Bluetooth" (upper left).
What does it tell you on the right?

It should show -something there-.

If it just gives you something like "Bluetooth not available", it could be either:
- hardware (not sure if the MBPro has a removable BT module or not)
OR
- software (drivers for BT not loading at bootup, or perhaps they're missing).

Poki's suggestion about a PRAM reset is a good one.

Hi,

I am using Macbook pro 13" early 2011
OS: High Sierra

So far I tried following ways till now but nothing worked out.

1. PRAM that is shutdown and restart by pressing command + option + P + R
2. SMC restart by pressing Shift + control + option then power.
3. Deleting com.apple.bluetooth.plst file from library

Weird thing is when I delete the 3rd step file completely and restart computer it again appeared there.

This happened after upgrading OS to High Sierra

Thanks

Since it happened after updating to High Sierra, doing a fresh install might be a good option (don't forget to backup your data!).
