    7100 is dead please help

    Advertisement



    Hoping someone has encountered this or has a suggestion... Last night my 7100r shut off and since then I have been unable to get it to turn back on, I have tried removing the battery and SIM card as well as plugging it in to the charger and also to my computer. It turns on and the little hour glass comes on for a minute or so and then the thing just shuts right off Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Time for a replacement. I don't think there is anything else that can be done unless you have another battery and can charge it from that.

    Thanks, still doesn't seem to be working... I've ordered a new battery should be sent to my office tomorrow, if that doesn't work this could be the excuse I was looking for to upgrade to the 8700

    Nothing better than an excuse for a new nifty 8700.

    ~~Posted via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~~ well I'm just a new comer to this site, but I might happen to know a thing or two about 7100i's. You should try to remove the battery while its plugged into your computer... When that is completed, then hold down the power button for 30 seconds... When that is completed then place the battery back into your BB and it should start back up again... U might want to use the BB software to keep it on line and officailly back up any data.

    Would that be some type of internal reset?

    ~~Posted via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~~Yes, that is sort of like an internal reset.
