    Pearl is dead?

    Advertisement



    Yeah, my phone dosent turn on. I have left it to charge over night, still nothing. Took out battery, put it back in, and still nothing.

    When I charge it the red light comes on for 5 seconds then leaves, I disconnect it, plug it in again and red light comes back for 5 second then leaves.

    Help, thanks

    Sorry to hear you are having troubles. Sounds like it could be a dead battery (we hope) Have you tried a different charger or to charge with your USB port on your computer?

    Otherwise did anything happen?....dropped, water damage, new software?

    That's exactly the results of a malfunction in batt/chrgr. My wm device did that when I got a bad batt.

    vista killer,

    Sorry but I cannot understand what your current issue is. Does your device work now? Any error messages you can tell us about? What update or install did you attempt?

    Can you please repost with a few more details?

    I´ve a Pearl 8100 fro t-mobile in Germany (sorry for my bad english..)
    in the past 6 month i installed many free progs for my bb and so i found many probs (DesktopManager and Vista.... broken downloads... and more...)
    many times bb run to install a prog... and run, and run .... an nothing happend...

    So find out how to do a "hard reset"
    Battery out - waiting -replace... than start bb - an the intern security-software resets the bb and the device will operate quick and easy !!!

    Than last month --- bb wont to start - no light - nothing to connect via usb to pc
    i´m bored...
    a friend told me thats a prob with the battery every time your power is less then 5% (the original bb-battery is not the best !!!)

    And so i only took the battery out, replace it and connect via usb an then:
    do nothing (!!!!) only wait ca 20 min.

    After this time - uuups - my bb ist blinking an the battery charges -
    whow... bb is still alive :-)

    30 minutes later everything is ok and my bb 8100 Pearl works fine....

    a (sorry) great **** is: you are not warned that the batt is empty... so you have a prob if you not load every day...
