I purchased a Pearl 8100 in Craigslist. I has worked prefectly fine for about 2 ... BlackBerry Pearl forum
Pearl not working (Screen shows hourglass and goes blank and led blinks)
I purchased a Pearl 8100 in Craigslist. I has worked prefectly fine for about 2 months now. Suddenly this morning when I took it out of the holster the screen is dead. (i am pretty sure the phone was not dropped or was exposed to moisture)
I tried to charge the phone but I see:
Step-1: First, the screen is on and shows a busy sign (as happens when it is loading an application) for one minute or so and then stops.
Step-2: Then LED light is on for a min. and then stops. And goes to step-1
This just keeps happening as long as the phone is being charged. I tried to take the battery out and charge the phone without the battery (i read that somewhere in on of the threads) but that did not help either.
When I connect it to my PC via USB, it recognizes the phone for a while and again says cannot be recognized (and the led is blinking this time) and just like charging....it alternates between the two. I do not get far enough to re-install the OS.
Any help Please ?

Reason: first time posting the thread...i am not sure how to !
My 8320 did that and some good folks on this board
said to delete photos or apps.
This reduced the total memory used and worked perfectly!
Thanks wxboss, i will try going through that and see if it works...
bukzin, I have removed the microSD card tried but still it's the same, and i don't have any pictures saved on the device, but i will look at that too... thanks.
