Why is my bluetooth not Working?

I have a black 2.4 GHz (Penryn) MacBook 13"

on the top left on the bluetooth symbol there is a zig zag line over it and when i put the cursor over it says bluetooth not available.

When I search for bluetooth and click on the icon says the following: You can’t open the “Bluetooth” preferences pane because it is not available to you at this time.

To see this preferences pane, you may need to connect a device to your computer.

Any advice how to fix this?

Have you tried reinstalling a fresh copy of OSX? I would try that first. If that doesn't help, you might be looking at replacing the airport card on your macbook. It has an antenna for WiFi and bluetooth as well. Luckily, it's pretty straight forward replacing this card and requires minimal experience. Just look at the repair guide here for your specific machine.
