Re: bluetooth

I know that it is not very helpfull to say this,but you are not alone with this fault which appears to be quite common to the D500.I assume that the same notice appears when you attempt to activate IR as this is usually the case. The only suggestion that has been doing the rounds is as follows. Remove the back and look at the chassis and you will see a square IC unit near the battery connectors. Apply heavy but carefull pressure on this and try the Bluetooth again. This is said to have cleared the fault in at least two cases.

My genio touch bluetooth will not activate. When I tap to turn my bluetooth on it takes more than 30 seconds saying activating Bluetooth then it says ? activating bluetooth failed " please help me what do...

Hi, when a blue tooth takes time to activate,it usually caused by VIRUS on the phone.
You will need to reset the phone or flash the phone to remove the VIRUS. Flashing the phone removes VIRUS from phone.

Reset code:*2767*2878# or you can flash with the below link:
You can use this link to see how to flash your phone

Have a nice day.
