    I found some info:
    https://plugable.com/2014/06/23/plug...#comment-49409
    opensuse 42.3, bluez 5.41 , pulseaudio 11.1
    fw-0a5c_21e8.hcd must be renamed to BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e8.hcd
    why this name ?
    because kernel says loading “BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e8.hcd failed , not found” if the patch get another name.
    thus read boot.log or dmesg to know what name is the good one for your case.
    now
    – when starting pc dongle is not activate (no blue light), we get bluelight only if we activate bt with bluedevil plasma dialog
    and if we unactivate bt with bluedevil plasma dialog then blue light switches off.
    – with hfp/hsp
    sound is well driven to the headset speaker
    but
    – with a2dp and Plantronics BBTSENSE
    we still can’t record this profile as the default one when connected.
    if we do this then when connecting headset the profile “off” is the default one

    This might be an issue of locking of the device. Do
    Code:
    sudo zypper in rfkill
    than run
    Code:
    sudo rfkill list
    and post the output here, between CODE tags, the # in the editor layout ribbon.

    Meaning "spontaniously" or did some action change things? Would be nice if you let us know, for the sake of others meeting the same issue.

    Default AW: Direct firmware load for brcm/BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e8.hcd failed with error -2

    I think. downloading and installing the Firmware was the final action.

    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...5.1.noarch.rpm

    or

    HI Deano,
    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm a little out of my element here, but I think I read that the likely fix is to install the bcm20702a1-firmware-12011012-5.1.noarch.rpm
    fix from Sauerland's repo. However, that link returns a 404 error. Any suggestions?

    You should reply in the thread you started ie keep the discussion in one place.
