Bluetooth issue. Today I connected with my soundbox to play

Resolved Question:

Bluetooth issue. Today I connected with my soundbox to play some music from youtube. After one song my connection is no longer. My tablet tells me it is paired with my soundbox but nothing happens. Earlier it was telling me they were connected. They are no more than a few feet apart. I also bought a keyboard for my tablet but it will no connect and this is not the first time it happened. It was purchased in December 2013 and I brought it to a Samsung repair centre in Dundrum, Dublin last year. They did a bit of tweaking but the Bluetooth issue has persisted. I was putting it down to bluetooth being a fit finicky at times but now it has become a severe irritation. I just have no confidence in my Bluetooth connection between my tablet and other devices

After a bit of a struggle they are now connected. What do you think the problem might be
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
The Bluetooth Stack or system process was corrupted, so we needed to clear this so the unit could recreate it, which it did. It should be ok now.
I marked the question to never close though, so any issues at all, at any time, let me know here.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
