hciconfig -a
hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB
04:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

Whenever I try to use bluetooth I always encounter rfkill problems:
localhost ~ # rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
localhost ~ # rfkill unblock 0
localhost ~ # rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

It was working just fine before, this problem is new, not sure if I have provided enough information, so If I have left anything out please tell me
thanks
