    8100 death?

    Advertisement



    So I my phone died last night (battery ran out of charge). I left it charging all night and this morning I try and turn it on and nothing happens but I saw that the led was lit up red (not flashing, solid). Also when i connect my phone to computer windows runs new hardware wizard even though I have desktop manager 4.2 which previously worked on. is this the death of my phone?

    Have you tried a battery pull?

    try connecting your bb to your desktop manager without the battery installed. when the phone gets recognized by you app loader pop the battery in and run it.
