    Hourglass and constant reset

    Advertisement



    My device turns on comes up with the hourglass for a minute or so, then turns off, solid red LED comes on, then resets to start the process over.
    I already reinstalled the OS twice.
    Anybody have any insight?
    It would be much appreciated, life sucks without a blackberry.

    It sounds to me like it may be shot. Is the phone still under warranty? I'd so I would do an echange. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    More likely it's a software issue than being shot. Have you installed anything new that may have triggered this? I would follow the link that bcbbanga4l posted and try and figure out what may have caused the failure.

    Welcome to the Stacks Govo.

    If you click on the link in my signature (JVM 102 fix), it will bring you through the steps to get up and running again. Have you done a backup recently?

    Good luck and let us know how you make out.

    Re: Hourglass and constant reset

    is there anyway for a mac user to solve this problem? i tried installing a theme OTA but as soon as it was done installing it reset my blackberry, however after it reset it was stuck on the hourglass screen for more than an hour. and it turns off for maybe a few seconds and starts back up with the hourglass screen. these instructions all seem very promising however i'm a mac user and most of them are for PC users.
