Clearing the cache means erasing any stored Bluetooth data from your device, such as pairing history and connections. This will remove any damaged data causing the Bluetooth function to malfunction.

Fix 04: Turn Off the Battery Saver

When the battery saver is on, your device will limit the resources that it uses and this can block the Bluetooth from connecting.

In this case, turning off the battery saver will allow your device access to the resources it needs to establish a successful Bluetooth connection.

To turn off the battery saver, follow the steps below:

  1. Swipe down the notification bar.
  2. Tap on the power saving mode icon to turn if off.

If the battery saver is off and the Bluetooth connection is still not successful, there could be the other device you are attempting to connect to is not compatible with the Bluetooth version.

Therefore, you need to try connecting to another device to rule out any compatibility issues. And we will show you how to do that in the next section.

Fix 05: Try Connecting Another Device

If you have another Bluetooth device, try pairing that device with your Samsung Galaxy S22. If the pairing is successful, that means the Bluetooth on your Samsung Galaxy S22 is functioning properly.

However, if you are unable to connect any device with your Galaxy S22, then it is clear that you need to troubleshoot your device further by following the next fixes.

Fix 06: Reset Network Settings

All the Bluetooth configurations are falling under network settings. So if there are any misconfigurations causing Bluetooth to not function, resetting network settings will revert those changes you have made to factory values, fixing the problem. Also, this will clear out any temporary glitches that may be interfering with the connection of the device. 

To reset your Galaxy S22’s network settings, do this:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap on General management.
  3. Then, tap on Reset.

  1. Head over to Settings.
  2. Tap on Battery and device care.
  3. Tap on Software update.

Fix 08: Reset All Settings

If you’re still experiencing Bluetooth not working, resetting all settings is what you need to do. This is because if there is any setting, features such as battery optimization, or privacy settings blocking the Bluetooth from functioning, you can quickly fix them by resetting settings.

This won’t delete any of your personal data. Therefore you don’t need to take a backup before proceeding.

To reset all settings:

  1. Head over to Settings.
  2. Go to General management.
  3. Tap on Reset.
  4. Tap on Reset all settings.
