Bluetooth won't turn on

I have read and tried various advice found in this forum and the arch wiki (Bluetooth page) and I can't find a way to activate bluetooth in my laptop.

The point where I get stuck is bringing the bluetooth device up:

# hciconfig hci0 up
Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)

Other errors that appear:

# systemctl status bluetooth
● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service

The device is not soft or hard blocked by rfkill:

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

same here

Failed to set mode: Failed (0x03)

not rfkill blocked

using 4.2.5-1-ARCH kernel, also tried lwfinger's drivers (from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new)

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

Is it paired yet?  How did you try to pair it?

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

can't pair. can't scan.

# hciconfig hci0 up
Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)

i believe it has to do with driver for the rtl8723be wifi/bluetooth combined chipset.

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

So, what happened when you ran bluetoothctl  ?  Were you able to do a  power on command?
What happened when you ran the scan on command?

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

Last time I tried, I couldn't input anything to bluetoothctl. I have tested it right now and got this

$ bluetoothctl
[NEW] Controller DC:85:DE:C6:01:10 carlos-msi [default]
[bluetooth]# power on
Failed to set power on: org.bluez.Error.Failed
[bluetooth]# scan on
Failed to start discovery: org.bluez.Error.NotReady

Running the command as root doesn't change anything. I have added myself to the lp group.

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

Oh, hi smile Welcome to Arch Linux.  I know this is your thread, but I did not think you were around.
I kind of expected to here from markovic.milan.   

I did not expect to see that in response to a power on.  Did anything interesting show up in the journal as a result of that attempt?

Re: Bluetooth won't turn on

This are all mentions to bluetooth in my journal. There are attempts for two days. If it adds anything to the problem, I'm dual-booting with Windows 10.
