Bluetooth Telephone Nuting


Recommended Posts

anyone help me with this?

Have been using bluetooth happily since new to me about 6 weeks ago.

Suddenly all incoming and outgoing calls are automatically muted, and though i change the screen from Mute on to mute off, it still does not work, and mutes again next time i hear it.

phone (nokia n80) works fine outside of car so i am assuming its a car thing not a phone one.

i figure i must have inadvertently changed something but cant figure what - ideas???

I would suggest you delete your existing pairing and re-establish a new one - could be just a quirk .....

Do you mean that the 'mute on' touch button is shown or does it show 'mute off'?

It is showing Mute On and I cannot hear anything. I can change it by touching it to Mute Off, but still cannot hear anything. Next time I dial out, it still reverts to Mute On and nothing can be heard.

I'm sure, or at least I hope, that this is going to be a 'DOH' when I find out. I will try someone elses bluetooth today to see if it works with that

'Mute on' is normal status. It doesn't mean that the mute is on but it means that if you press it you will turn the mute on.

As for N80, I'm not aware of any issues. I can ask though. If you press *#0000# what does the phone show on its display?

To my knowledge Mute On (when pressed to then show Mute off) means the other party cannot hear you talking in the car, whilst you can hear the other party. It is not a call holding facility. I would suggest you try another phone, if you have one to hand. If it does not work with that, off to the dealer I am afraid ....

Yes, when you press mute on the other party can't hear you but you can still hear them.

BTW

Have you tried re-starting the phone when it does this? Does it still do it?

Pressing the keys I mentioned will show which FW version it is. There may well already be a later FW available which would fix this issue for you.

Thanks for help - now sorted. My phone's battery went completely dead (useless n80) , I replaced it with a new charged one and lo and behold the bluetooth is working fine. So it was a phone problem not a Lexus one after all. The Mute On/Off was a red herring - now it is working i can see that this is a 'switch' as opposed to an indicator of current status.

My only clue as to why this might have happened was that I had to switch my phone to silent shortly before it went faulty. Although I switched it back to general (and the phone itself received and made calls fine once away from the bloothtooth range), it somehow confused the cars bluetooth facility.

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
