Bluetooth suddenly decided not to work anymore..

Mon Jun 24, 2019 5:25 pm

First, let me say I don't have any programming/coding skills, I'm just starting out with raspberry pi, and my main reason is for retro games.
... oh, and hello!
Yesterday, I was playing with my raspberry pi 3, and gave using the Bluetooth feature a try.. found some write ups on how to set up the connection, and got it to work! Both of my 8bitdo mod kit controllers were connected and I was playing each game I had just put on. I was satisfied, and packed everything back up and worked on other things.
Hours later, I hooked it up to play a little more before bed... and they suddenly weren't able to connect to the pi!
I've gone through the settings, thought maybe I needed to update the controller firmware, (there are no current updates for the 8bitdo diy kits)
Has anyone else had this or a similar problem? I could use a hand please.
