There are a few things you can try when bluetooth fails. Give these a whirl and let us know if you're still stuck...
Things to check on your iPad (iOS)
Toggle Bluetooth off and on - Under Settings > Bluetooth - switch it off and leave for a few seconds. Then switch on and search.
Update iOS - Make sure you're on the latest update on iOS - Settings > General > Software Update
Force a restart - Switch off Bluetooth (Settings > Bluetooth) then power off the iPad. Turn Bluetooth back on.
Forget Device - Go To Settings > Bluetooth and locate your device. Press the (i) button on the right and tap on Forget this device then Confirm.
Full Network Reset - You can reset your network settings by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Please note: This will take a few minutes, reboot the iPad and reset all Wi-fi, bluetooth and cellular networks - which will need to be set up again. So keep your passwords handy and don't try this during service.
