    Question JBL Go 3 speaker not connecting to Ubuntu 20.04

    Hi!

    I acquired a new laptop some months ago and have happily been using Ubuntu 20.04 but I've encountered a recent problem... My JBL Go 3 speaker is not connecting to the computer through bluetooth. I've read that I could disconnect the Wifi and it did help but now it doesn't connect at all. And when it does it works fine for a while but all of a sudden the sounds begin to be all choppy (as if the connection was not good) even when the speaker is right in front of the computer. If I disconnect the device there's not way it will connect again.

    Can anyone guide me on what's actually going on and if there's a way to fix this? The speaker is not the problem at all, it connects fine to my cellphone and my work computer. Other devices are not connecting through bluetooth either

    Thanks in advance for your help! Let me know what you need from me.

    Hi carega , I had a similar thing happen with a JBL GO2. I finally solved it by installing
    Code:
    sudo apt install rfkill
    and using the command
    Code:
    sudo hciconfig hci0 reset
    Once rfkill is installed you will be able to see if a device is locked with the command
    Code:
    sudo rfkill list
    If you see that a bluetooth device is locked enter the locked number at the end of the following command e.g.
    Code:
    rsudo rfkill unblock 7
    in case number 7 is locked.

    Nice weather.
