Bluetooth issues
 
Hi, I am at my wits end with my bluetooth on my 12" G4 powerbook.
it is running 10.5.5 and is very reliable with no issues at all except that one day my bluetooth preferances vanished from system preferances, the icon is there but just opens to an empty box.

I can use bluetooth no trouble to get online/isync with my phone and can add new phones etc by using the dropdown box under the bluetooth thingy at the top of the screen. I can't delete/remove any tho as i need prefs to do that.

Is there a simple solution? Ideally i would like to get the preferances back but at least just get rid of the phones already listed to start again. I don't really want to do a reinstall due to the hassle of reinstalling everything else.

Thanks in advance

Here are several suggestions from rebooting, resetting PRAM and NVRAM. Good luck:-
