Unable to remove BT serial port

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
In Bluetooth Serial Utility, there's a port I can neither delete nor edit b/c "the port is in use". There are no BT apps running, BT is turned off and I still can't change the port. I can set up, edit and delete other ports, but not this one. I've reinstalled Panther and upgrades, run fsck, but no luck.

I'm on a 12"PB, 867mhz/640ram, running 10.3.3.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Open terminal and type:-


    killall blued

    Then see if you can delete the port. Then reboot to start the bluetooth daemon (blued) properly.
