Hi, I am having issues with bluetooth, is it a replacement or do I need to swap the MB? Thank you

Bruno Albin - Yanıt

When you have ruled out any software issues (tried restart, factory reset, software update, etc) then this is most likely a MB replacement since all the modules are integrated on that tiny thing.
