Bluetooth DIsconnect Problems?

No matter how many times I rebooted/upgrade, systemctl restart bluetooth, off/on bluetooth back and forth connect attempts repeatedly w/intermittently stopping of bluetooth on the phone. Still, no bluetooth connection sticking (with previously setup and working well bluetooth headphones).

When I viewed systemctl status bluetooth in terminal, I found this (MAC OUI left as is):

Code:
Dec 10 17:03:03 mobian bluetoothd[485]: sap-server: Operation not permitted (1)
Dec 10 17:03:07 mobian bluetoothd[485]: Endpoint registered: sender=:1.30 path=/MediaEndpoint/A2DPSink/sbc

Dec 10 17:23:06 mobian bluetoothd[485]: src/profile.c:ext_connect() Headset Voice gateway failed connect to FC:58:FA:X:X:X: Connection refused (111)
Dec 10 17:23:06 mobian bluetoothd[485]: profiles/audio/avdtp.c:avdtp_connect_cb() connect to FC:58:FA:X:X:X: Permission denied (13)

Since this has happened to me numerous times (seemingly completely random), a simple fix is to completely remove the previously setup bluetooth device on the Pinephone, and then readd it from scratch:

Code:
bluetoothctl

In bluetoothctl I entered:

Code:
remove FC:58:FA:X:X:X

After removing the device completely, I was able to reconnect by starting the pair over again from scratch.

I used bluetoothctl (there is also a "Remove Device" under Bluetooth settings in Mobian).

I don't know if this helps anyone or not, but I am sharing in case it helps someone shares the same frustrating problem. Outside this Bluetooth has really improved in functionality (besides the weak connection mentioned in another thread).

To add: I am really happy with the noticeable progress (to think, just a few months ago, no bluetooth headphones were usable, now I rarely experience problems).

Great progress. Now I can listen to Podcasts without a problem (tip: set podcasts to use Lolipop to prevent sound cutouts on 'blankscreen').
Thank you to all contributors! Big Grin
Thank you for this, I have been using VLC for podcasts and I get the random bluetooth disconnect. It is with the screen off and is anywhere from 5 to 7 minutes. When I turn the screen back on the sound emits from the speakers but plays, stops, plays, stops, etc. I will try Lolypop, do you also use gPodder?
