Question:

This question already has an answer here:

update:

$ lsusb  Bus 003 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp.   Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub  Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub  Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04f2:b3aa Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd   Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0489:e062 Foxconn / Hon Hai   

I cannot get the same Bluetooth message in terminal as Bluetooth Broadcom 43142 isn't working

The Raw Question:

I'm a newbie for Ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu 15.10 on my Sony SVF15316SCW (Vaio) computer. Everything is OK but my bluetooth is not working.I cannot find any bluetooth device in my bluetooth list though I open the BlueTooth switch.

And when I try to open BlueTooth again, I cannot get any response though I take on the bluetooth switch.

I tried to search solution and print some messages.
