    Lightbulb Blackberry will NOT turn on!!


    I just got my Blackberry 8100 four days ago, and all was fine until I went to turn it on yesterday. I let it charge, and when I woke up there was a blank screen and the red light was blinking. It blinks once, pauses, and then blinks 3 more times. To top it off, my computer doesn't even recognize the phone when it's hooked up into the USB port. I've unloaded and reloaded the desktop manager, downloaded the handheld software to my computer, still doesn't show up on the computer. I tried the battery pull, leaving it out for 30 seconds or more, and when I replace the battery I still get that blinking red light combination!! I really, really, REALLY don't want to have to get a new Blackberry because I have no contacts saved to my SIM and I JUST got everyone's numbers back.

    Do I have any other options?!? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It sounds like something went corrupt... You will have to reload the OS.

    You can use this thread

    How To: ReInstall OS When Computer Won't Recognize The Device Is Connected

    or this thread

    KB03485 - Run Application Loader when the BlackBerry device does not connect

    Hopefully you had backed up the information from your blackberry recently.
