Holster not recognised

HI all


Out of the blue the holster on my 8520 is not being recognised.  From the screen not dimming on entering the holster to all the profile options not working iro the holster.


Ideas welcome


Thank you

Re: Holster not recognizes

Hi and welcome to the forums!


Check your holster and make sure the sleeper magnet is in place.

The magnet has to be positioned correctly to put the device in standby.

Re: Holster not recognised

Ditto, what Bif said, and also, try facing the 8520 INWARD, towards the belt.
