Cheers Enrique.
I cleaned it just now with a microfibre cloth.It looked clean enough.I will see how this goes.If the problem re-occurs I will try the alcohol,as you suggest.
I must say: the pencil eraser method sounds interesting!
Thankyou. John.

Re: "No Sim Card"

Cheers Gerry.
I did this last year, when I had a similar problem. I suppose it could need re-cleaning. Will do it.
Thankyou

Re: Opticians

Thanks Wicksey. I know "Ole".They are too expensive for my specs,but it may be worth my wife seeing them for her contact lenses,as she is not too happy getting them from Soloptical. I would be happy to try them for my specs,except that I'm concerned about their expertise When we went there...

Opticians

Can anyone recommend, please, an optician ; between T.Del Mar & Nerja?
Although we like Specsavers, we're fed up of driving to Fuengirola.If we could get someone as reasonably-priced,that would be a bonus.

I use BB4S.
It's working OK here.( Had a couple of drop-outs yesterday watching BT Sport 1.)
Their offices are not open on Sunday, so no contact.

Re: Youtube on Android Phone

Thankyou Spanish Lad. I'm sure it's not an internet problem. We have excellent connection. When I googled it I found that it was a problem between the "Client" & the "Server" and that the response code "499" is not the fault of the device. I cannot pretend to unders...

Re: Youtube on Android Phone

Thanks Mark. Cannot delete the app as it is a "System App" When I open the app, I can still do a search for videos and I can still access my library. The only thing this error does, is kill the home page. As a stop-gap I have put a link onto the home screen to the Youtube website. It actua...
