    BB8700 - Red Blinking LED - Nothing Else!

    Advertisement



    Okay; so I have read this forum before with the Red LED Blinking light with no other indication of life to my B 8700. It says to reinstall the OS. I have tried this. This is what I did:

    1. Download desktop Mgr to desktop
    2. Download handheld software to desktop
    3. Connect USB to BB to the Laptop
    4. Launch Desktop Mgr
    *NOTE: Desktop Mgr doesnt recognize the device
    5. Go to connection settings in desktop mgr and try to detect the phone by selecting USB - detect.
    *This is the point where the USB is NEVER detected, no matter how many times I try without the battery in the phone or with the battery in the phone. I never get passed this point and the "how to reinstall the OS..."instructions dont say what to do in this case. Any ideas???? I only had this phone for 1 year. HELP!

    I did follow those instructions to a "T". However, I dont get past the part where the Desktop Mgr detects the USB Pin. Could the phone just be broken?
