Contacts button and Start menu item not responding

Periodically, my contact button ceases to work. At the same time the "Contacts" item in the start menu does nothing when I clcik on it. Nothing solves this except a soft reset. I have no clue what is causing it. It appears to be random.

Since "Contacts" on the start menu fails at the same time as the button, it is more like that there is a software problem, and the button cannot open the applet that is failing. If you want to ensure that you do not have a hardware problem, try remapping the button to open another application. You can do this by going to Settings/Buttons. You might want to try using the Task Switcher, which you can turn on in Settings/System. When you encounter the problem with Contacts, then click on the Task Switcher and see how many programs are open. Use the Taks Switcher to close all the programs, and then try Contacts again and see if it works. Most applications do not close, and if you have many open applications, then it will degrade performance.

How to transfer contacts from iphone to bluetooth

You can transfer contacts to iPhone with Bluetooth. However, you can make it with Airdrop between Apple devices. Just follow below steps to do that.

1. On your iPhone, you need to swipe upwards to navigate to the "Control Centre" and turn on the feature of "AirDrop". Connect your iPhone to good Wi-Fi network for preparation. After that, you need to choose "Contacts Only" or "Everyone" as you like on iPhone.
2. On your Mac computer, you need to go to the interface of "Finder" and select "AirDrop" from the left-side column to enable the Wi-Fi function. You need to make sure both your iPhone and Mac computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
3. In the "Finder" interface, you need to move to the option of "Allow me to be discovered by" and choose "Everyone", "Contacts Only", or "No One" in the light of your demands. I recommend you use "Everyone".

4. On your Mac computer, you need to kick off the "Contacts" app and then locate the certain contact you want to transfer to your iPhone.
5. Find the "Share" button at the lower right corner of the window to click on and then choose "AirDrop" as the sharing method.
6. Select your iPhone device in the AirDrop available lists, and then start transferring contacts from Mac to iPhone with one click. Thus, you can go to your iPhone to click on "Accept" to receive the AirDropped contacts from Mac.

There is a small green board underneath the buttons that has silver contacts underneath them that allows the buttons to activate. These silver contacts wear out over time which is why your having to press the power button more then once to get it to respond. That small green board with the silver contacts on them would have to be replaced.

Sub titles wont turn off

It may sound simplistic but many times when a remote starts to act flaky, replacing the battery (or batteries) will cure the problem.
They don't last forever.

Another possibility is that the Closed Caption feature has been set in the menu so a check of basic settings might help.

Finally, the contacts in most remotes consist of small carbon buttons and fixed contacts on a printed circuit board.
The board contacts were once flashed with gold plating but - well, we know what has happened to gold lately, so manufacturers have pretty much ceased to use gold and some don't even bother with nickle now but just depend on the tin-lead solder to last beyond the warranty.
This latter material does oxidize over time and becomes a lot less conductive.

If you can crack the case (sometimes there is a concealed screw or two- be careful) it can help to gently run a pencil eraser over the board contacts to restore their shiny surface.

Problem with finding contacts on handheld

I suspect you have a Filter "on". If you see a bar right under the "Find:" prompt, that has a name in it, not a contact name, but rather a filter name, then this will be the reason the "P" search is not finding anything because a "P" record doesn't exist in this filter group.

Click on the Menu button (the one immediately to the left of the track ball, scroll and click on the Filter menu item just under the Help menu item. Scroll through your list of filter groups and make sure none of them are "checked". If one ore more are checked, un-check them all and retry your steps from the beginning.
