Are you experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues on your Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 4G, Redmi Note 9 5G, or Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G device? Is the Bluetooth not working properly or unable to connect to other devices?

Don’t worry, we’ll provide some tips to help you troubleshoot and fix any Bluetooth connectivity problems on your Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 series device.

Tips to Fix Redmi Note 9 Bluetooth Issue

1. Turn Bluetooth off and back on

Sometimes the Bluetooth system on your phone can temporary freeze due to a minor software glitch. This can be easily resolved through a simple Bluetooth toggle. To do this, turn the Bluetooth off and then back on again. Doing this will help clear the glitch and reset the Bluetooth connection.

To turn the Bluetooth off and on, here’s how to do that:

  • Swipe down from the top to bring up the Quick Settings panel
  • Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn Bluetooth off
  • Tap the Bluetooth icon again to turn Bluetooth back on

2. Toggle airplane mode on and off

This is a simple procedure that is known to fix most network related issues. The Airplane Mode trick works by temporary disabling all network connections and then turning them back on again. This action allows the device to reset all its network services and clear any errors that may be present in the phone’s network system.

To perform the airplane mode trick, follow these steps:

  • Swipe down from the top to bring up the Quick Settings panel
  • Tap the Airplane mode icon to turn it on for few seconds
  • Tap the Airplane mode icon again to turn it back off

3. Remove and add Bluetooth device

If your phone is currently paired with other Bluetooth devices, it can cause conflict and prevent your phone from pairing a new device. Try removing or unpairing all connected or saved devices from your phone and then try pairing them again. Doing this will help clear the conflicts and allow your phone to initiate fresh connection.

To unpair Bluetooth devices, here’s how to do that:

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on Bluetooth
  • Under Paired devices, tap the device to remove
  • Next tap Unpair to remove the selected device

Once you’ve done this, try pairing the Bluetooth device again and see if it works. If it doesn’t, try the next solution.

4. Use another Bluetooth device

Sometimes the problem could be with the Bluetooth device itself. Try pairing with another working Bluetooth device and see if it works. If it does, your primary Bluetooth device could be defective. On the other hand, if the issue still persists, continue troubleshooting further.

5. Force reboot the phone

Sometimes your phone can experience a minor system glitch and cause the Bluetooth to stop working temporary. A force device reboot can help resolve the problem by allowing your phone to refresh and clear itself of the flaws that may be affecting the device’s Bluetooth system. Once you have rebooted the device, try pairing again and see if the issue clears. If it doesn’t, proceed on to the next solution.

6. Reset network settings

This is another simple solution that can help clear errors caused by network settings conflicts. A network reset will restore the network settings on your phone including the Wi-Fi connections, mobile networks and Bluetooth to their default configurations. After the reset, try pairing your phone with the Bluetooth device again and see if it now works.

To reset network settings, perform the following steps:

  • Open Settings
  • Tap on Connection & sharing
  • Tap on Reset Wi-Fi, mobile networks, and Bluetooth
  • Tap on Reset settings
  • Type in your passcode if prompted
  • Then click OK to confirm the action in the popup

7. Update software

If there is some bug causing the Bluetooth issue, updating software can solve the problem. To check and update software, follow the steps below.

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on About phone
  • Then tap on System update to download and install the update

8. Reset the phone

If the above solutions do not work, you could reset your phone as the last resort but before you do so, back up all your important data as the procedure will erase them completely. To reset the device, follow the steps below:

  • Turn off the device
  • Now press and hold the Power and Volume Up keys for few seconds
  • When the device logo is displayed, release the Power button but continue to hold the Volume Up key until the Recovery menu appears
  • Use the Volume Down key to highlight and select “Wipe Data
  • Press the Power key to select the option
  • Make sure Wipe All Data option is highlighted
  • Press the Power key to proceed
  • Use the Volume Down key to highlight and select “Confirm
  • Press the Power key to confirm and proceed
  • Your device will now begin the reset process
  • After the factory reset completes, you will see the recovery menu again
  • Select “Reboot” and press Power button to proceed
  • Select “Reboot to System” to restart the device
