iSync failure

Q. I've been syncing my Symbian smartphone happily to my Mac for over a month, yet all of a sudden the iSync has started failing, with error: “[Nokia N97 mini] Connection to the phone failed. Please make sure that your phone is turned on.” I'm tech savvy and have tried power cycling both phone and Mac. What's next?

Broken thumbnails

Q. When I go to Photos on my new N97 it shows the icon of one picture I took a few weeks ago (all others have all been transferred off onto my PC). However, when I tap the icon to open it, I get the broken image icon and a 'General system error' when I try to delete it. The picture isn't visible in Windows Explorer when my phone is connected to my PC. How do I remove the broken image completely?

That's one very large file!

Q. I have recently been doing a clean up on my microSD card and have come across a very large file in one directory: /private/101ffc31/glxmdstn. My PC doesn't recognize it and it isn't visible in my phone's file browser. The file is a whopping 140MB. What purpose does it have? Is it safe to delete it? Maybe it's obsolete data?

Proximity Puzzle

Q. I'm utterly bamboozled by the way the screen of my Nokia touchscreen phone goes black and unresponsive when I make or receive a phone call, giving me no chance of switching on speakerphone or entering tones. I've tried updating the firmware and resetting it, to no avail - the moment a call is made, the screen goes blank immediately. And then returns to normal after the call. Can you help?

Frustrating tabs

Q. I've got a Nokia S60 5th Edition phone and have a wierd problem. Everything works fine apart from dialogs which have tabs in them. Here, my taps on each tab have no effect and I'm effectively restricted to just the first tab. Very frustrating. Any ideas?

Ghost Music entries

Q. Music player on my old Nokia smartphone seems to have developed a few glitches. The main problem seems to be that some 'albums', synced across from Windows Media Player have duplicated track entries. If I try to play these ghost tracks I just get an exclamation mark and Music player skips ahead to the next one. How can I clean things up?
