BT Graphite 1500. When I press the "Open Phonebook" key, nothing

This answer was rated:

BT Graphite 1500. When I press the "Open Phonebook" key, nothing happens. After several presses I get a saved number but when Ipress the green dialling button nothing happens. I know some problems can be solved by taking out and replacing batteries but the cover on the back of the handset seems jammed (it has never been off before)

It is either residual power causing this, or the memory is faulting.

I know the cover on the back is jammed, but we really need to remove the batteries to remove residual power as the cause of the problem.

It will come off, can you try removing it with a cloth to get better traction?

Yes, it was the residual power that was the problem Kenneth, we had to do this step.

It will be ok now.
