    Water damage/ Error 507

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I drop my BB in the lake on the weekend. I dried it out and took the battery out. Tried turing it back on but all I get is error msg 507. How can I reinstall the OS even though the Desktop manager can't detect it?

    water is never a good thing. ive heard of many people trying to turn on their phone right after they drop it in water and thats a sure fire way to ruin your phone. you took the right steps by taking the battery out right after and letting it dry out

    Install the desktop manager and device os. Do a search on your computer for vendor.xml. Find it and delete the file, then follow the directions in the link.

    No, it doesn't need to be in the BB. But it will if you want to use data or phone services if you get the software reloaded. Just follow the instructions in the Linked thread very carefully.

    Re: Water damage/ Error 507

    In the instructions it requires me to "1. Install the desktop software." and "2. Install the handheld software.". I'm not able to find "handheld software.", where would I be able to find that?

    Thanks everyone for your help.
