I recently followed the instructions listed in the following link to get my
RT3290 bluetooth working on my laptop. These instructions have yielded the most progress I have had in the year I have had this laptop. My machine now sees my bluetooth, I can scan for and see devices, and other devices and see my laptop, but pairing continually fails.
04:00.1 Bluetooth: Ralink corp. RT3290 Bluetooth
rfkill list reads
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
dmesg | grep Blue reads

Any one have any thoughts or ideas I could try? Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
