It sounds like a driver issue.

These pages might help:
https://lothiancaleysweb.co.uk/install-broadcom-bcm43142-driver-on-ubuntu

i tried but it didn't worked :-
i tried these:-

1>sudo pkill -2 rtbt
sudo rmmod rtbth
sudo modprobe rtbth
2>sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth

and i can't able to understand other solutions
help me if you know

When you open the Drivers pane, do you see anything there? Mine looks like this:

and mine look like this '

I would try the first answer given in:
Ubuntu 20.04 bluetooth not working - Ask Ubuntu.

If this does not work, the second answer also seems to work.

Since I do not have a same chipset on my Bluetooth, I am afraid I cannot help you any further than this.

I also would like to add what I know about Bluetooth / WiFi combo card. If it has been designed poorly, those two wireless functions could interfere each other. I had such card in one laptop and ended up replacing it with a WiFi only card, and resorting to an USB Bluetooth dongle to avoid such interference.

i tried both 1st ans 2nd ,
not worked for me ,
i will try updating driver from windows 10

Just one more thing to try:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source

On this page, it is recommended to disable secureboot before running this command.
(I never enabled secureboot myself, so I cannot vauch though).

secure boot is desabled alread
but my wifi is working well , only bluetooth is not working

..like this post if u have ready this @FrenchPress

I hope it is merely a driver issue.
If it were interference, the only option is to use USB dongle for Bluetooth function - just like what I did. Just in case anyone interested in obtaining Bluetooth dongle well supported in Linux, it is CSR8510 A1. Just watch out for counterfeit chips - I once was burned by one of those :frowning_face:
