    Did you get a manual? Toyota has them online. (pdf file). If that link doesn't work, try this one.

    Looks like you should have gotten there returning to the default but I'm no Bluetooth whiz.

  • thanks- have the manual. no mention of how to do that and the manager at the toyota dealer did not get why this i happening. common sense and logic says going to default should work but doesn't. have to wait until the tech people are back to work at toyota. closed today. thanks for trying.

  • On my 14.5 L and 13 XLE, I go to Setup and press Bluetooth. There is a pairing procedure you go thru where you turn on your smart phone and the car system and walk them thru a learning process. Nothing is automatic by using default.

  • Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I'm having the same exact problem with the same make and model car.
  • I figured it out! Make sure to disassociate your phone with the car then connect again. In other words on my iPhone, "forget the network".
  • Thank you deanna301 your fix worked on my new 2016 Camry.

    I deleted the mobile address for the car on my phone then let the Bluetooth in car search again .then it found it and loaded all my contacts from my phone. This was a Windows phone and a 2014 Camry.

    Did you ever figure it out because I'm having he same problem. When i go to detailed bluetooth settings, the option to turn bluetooth on is grayed out.. i tried deleting all personal data and previously paired devices. When i try to just connect and search for my car on my phone or tablet, it can see the car multimedia and connect for a sec, but then it boots off and says device not supported. Ive tried everything, i just cant figure out why it wont give me the option to turn it on in the car
  • I tried everything I could find to make the Bluetooth work. Every blog, every tutorial, even the manual :) Went up the ladder at the dealership (everyone trying the exact same things I had tried) but the option to "Add New Device" was always greyed out and it was stuck on "Bluetooth Is Off". Finally, the Toyota service person tried upgrading the firmware and, failing with that, determined I need a whole new audio unit. I'll be getting that this week or next. I know the other posts here are old but I want to post anyway so when someone new searches, you will see this and realize you may well have tried everything and done everything right and the system is just going to have to be replaced.
  • Hi All,

    I had the same problem. I clicked on “Forget this device” on my iPhone and then tried to connect the phone again from the car. This time it worked and now my iPhone is connected to my Camry 2013 again. Hope it works for you all too !

    Thanks for sharing that baggs88. Amazing how many times things like that work now. Sort of like the standard Comcast solution of restarting the modem :)

  • Having same problem here! Just bought a 2015 Venza (had a 2012 Venza-no problems) and the Bluetooth is off! Bluetooth on my iPhone has nothing to connect to, the Bluetooth in the car is off! Bluetooth on my iPhone is fine and works with everything else I have. The Bluetooth and Phone options on the car screen are greyed out(see attached photo) My iPhone was never connected to the car. I deleted previous personal data, Nothing has worked! How can the Bluetooth in the car be turned back on? Help!
  • I had the exact same problem, but now it’s fixed! I called Toyota Entune customer support and they sent me a link to the software update for my Camry Entune radio. Just follow the instructions and it will work again. https://securedp.toyota.com/download-app/toyota

    I just resolved the issue of the bluetooth being in the off position and would not turn on on our 2013 Toyota. After reading all the above, I turned off the bluetooth on my phone and then turned on the bluetooth on the car. When it was searching for other devices I turned on the phone's bluetooth and it connected. I was able to pair it and it worked. Praise God.

    I have had the same problem with my 2014 Toyota Camry. It was working fine for years. All of a sudden it says Bluetooth off. I did all of the above. I had a friend tell me to clear my cache on my Bluetooth on my phone. I took my phone to store had them clear bluetooth. Reconnected my bluetooth to car and now it works. Hope this helps.

    My 2015 Camry just did the same thing. On the car I hit the setup button then clicked general and from that screen I pushed the default button and then repaired my phone with no problem. This was after forgetting the device on the phone and car and restarting both about 10 times.
  • I have a similar problem. I have a 2013 Corolla with a multimedia that's about a year old. The one that came with the car didn't work so they installed a new one. Bluetooth was working okay with my Android phone, then it turned off and won't be turned back on. Except sometimes it will search and load my phone, read about 2 sentences of my audio book, then shut off. This happens intermittently. I've tried deleting my phone and doing set up again multiple times (when it will let me) but then the page shifts to bluetooth-off.

    Advice?

    I had a similar Bluetooth problem on my 2015 Toyota Venza. Was paired with my iPhone, then today the Bluetooth stopped working. In the ‘Settings’ display, the Bluetooth & Phone links were grayed out, so couldn’t be pressed. Then I found this solution in another Toyota forum, and as crazy as it sounds, it worked! So if nothing else mentioned here works, try this:

    Turn ignition to On, but do not start the engine, and let the radio power on. Then while holding in the "APPS" button, turn the head lights on then off 3 times (Seriously!) This brought up a diagnostic screen. In the bottom left corner, hold down the "INIT" button about 3 seconds and it will say something about personalize data, yes or no. I pressed yes, and exited out by holding in the radio power button, which re-booted the display. The Bluetooth & Phone links in my Settings display were working again.

    This is a genuine fix!
