    Help! Calling All Bb 8100 Pearl Guru's!!

    Advertisement



    Blackberry Pearl Guru needed to help me!
    Hi,

    I have a 8100 that just has the trackball and led indicator light on (Red)

    I have tried to reload the SW and the operation keeps telling me that the "operation cannot reconnect during a multistage load"

    Once this happens, it fails.

    Does anybody have any ideas oh how to fix this, or do i get rid of this device and sell it as is.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Place the pearl on a table and use a hammer to make the red lights go out.

    I know you said you tried to reinstall the OS, but have you tried this way:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...vice+connected

    Sometimes when I cant get a device to load the OS I do it that way.

    And have you tried JL_cmder to wipe the device then Reload the OS?

    Thanks, I have tried that, still does not work, it seems to stall when it is trying to initilaize the device.

    Any other thoughts, otherwise, this is going on ebay for $1 starting bid.

    Thanks,

    Mine did the same thing when I upgraded. First it stalled initializing. Then I got the dreaded 504 Error. Then I called tmob and he held my hand and it worked perfectly.

    Are you sticking the battery back in when you are in the process of reloading the Operating System? If you do NOT put the battery in, it will not reinitialize the device at all. If the battery IS in, then you prob have a jacked up battery.

    Mine did this when I dropped it in water. It didn't work for a few days then after drying out and replacing the battery it comes on but the trackball light stayes red.

    Which brings up another question I should have asked:

    What caused this? I mean, it apparently didn't come out of the box that way. But was it an application that was loaded or a theme that you tried to install? That may help a little bit in troubleshooting....

    Oh, and if you can't fix it, I bid $2.00

    We got a batch of these, so these might be carrier returns.
    So we dont know what happened to this one.

    We might just use it for parts.

    Thank for all the help.
