Hi there and welcome

Is it multiple devices it does not connect to?

And what is the message you get when it fails to connect?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am trying to connect to my new fit bit and the icon just keeps spinning, for hours with no message but does not find it.
I am now trying to connect a sure sense monitor but it can't find that either?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Thanks

Can you hold the home and power buttons for 10 seconds until you see the Apple Logo then release.

Then let the phone restart and tell me if it now pairs please

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

is this with the Fitbit?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is not finding either device. I can go to the fit bit set up and try and ask it to reconnect again
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

I want you to factory reset the Fitbit, it will remove all your data and return it to new but this we have to do.

  1. Plug your tracker into the charger, and make sure the other end of the charger is plugged into a working USB port.
  2. Press and hold the button for approximately two seconds.
  3. Continue to hold the button while removing the tracker from the charging cable.
  4. Continue to hold the button for an additional seven to nine seconds, then release the button and immediately press it again.
  5. Your tracker will advance to a screen that says ALT immediately followed by a white screen. These screens may come up quickly and you might miss seeing one of the screens.
  6. Press the button after you see the white screen to advance to a screen that says VIBE. Your tracker will begin to vibrate.
  7. Press the button again to advance to the Error screen.
  8. Press and hold the button until you see the “Erase” screen, then let go of the button.

The tracker will now turn off. You can turn it back on by pressing the button again or by plugging the tracker into the charger. You'll know the reset happened if the time on your tracker is 0:00.

Then try to connect to it please

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Go to Start , then select Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard, and then move the slider under On-Screen Keyboard.

You see it appear?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, now click on option and click Turn on Numeric Keypad

Then click on Numlock on the onscreen keyboard

Tell me if it then works on the keyboard itself please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. It worked onscreen and added s keyboard to the end ok
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

This computer came with windows 7 correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Correct but it updated recently
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

it is a compatibility issue, there is nothing else that can interfere with this.

You would either need to revert to 7 again if its within 30 days since you did the upgrade else you would need to see if Sony produce an update for this (I checked by saw no plans yet from then about it sorry)
