Bluetooth turning on doesn't work

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 60%
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 3.4.0.24
HARDWARE (Jolla1, Tablet, XA2,…): Xperia XA2
UI LANGUAGE: Czech
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): -

DESCRIPTION:

Turning Bluetooth on doesn’t work in UI.

PRECONDITIONS:

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Settings -> Bluetooth
  2. tap to turn it on.

EXPECTED RESULT:

Turning Bluetooth on.

ACTUAL RESULT:

Bluetooth icon still blinking.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Restarting phone didn’t help everytime so I’ve tried to restart bluetooth.service via systemctl restart bluetooth.service and it helped and BT started to work.
I’m going to watch journalctl after it’ll be back, or can I see some log why BT isn’t working sometimes?

Same happened to me once with Xperia XA2 with latest 3.4.0.24. I wasn’t able to turn bluetooth on neither from Settings->Bluetooth nor from top menu Bluetooh button. Luckily reboot helped. Next time It happens, I’ll check Journal as well.

Same issue on XA2
