    Re: Dead Pearl?

    What is the last thing you did with your Pearl, did you recently install any 3rd party apps?
    Are you getting anything at all on the screen?
    If not, can you connect it to your PC and start DM (Desktop Manager) and does DM recognize the BB?

    If not, try this thread:

    Find the vendor.xml and rename or delete the file. Then try again.

    Also make sure if it gives you the option during the application loader, DO NOT select to auto back up and restore. It can/will cause connection issues during the process. Patience is key with this issue.

    The same thing happend with my pearl. So I took it apart all the way. Where the battery connects to the circit board.there is little gold squares. They are labeled with a + and - clean them with a little piece of sand paper so you get a good connection. Then put it back to gether. My pearl has worked problem free scence then. Good luck.
