    Post Pearl wont turn on, tried everything!

    Advertisement



    hi guys

    this is my first post on pinstack so go easy on me!
    i recently bought my first blackberry, i got an 8100 pearl and oh my god ive been missing out on so much using crappy old nokias and what ever, i love my blackberry and have been using it for near two weeks now and last night i picked it up to check what time it was and saw the screen had an hour glass on it and red led flashing.

    Ive spent 5 hours so far scanning forums, articles and blogs searching for a solution to my problem, hopefully someone here can help bring my bb pearl back to life.

    Application Loader gives an error when it has deleted the contents and will not go any further or allow me to reinstall OS.

    JavaLoader tells me that its unable to open port when i try and wipe the bb on usb.

    I cant take the bb back to the store as i bought it from a seperate company, my carrier is o2 in the uk.

    Please help me out here..
    thx

    Spdev, sorry to hear your having issues with your Pearl. Take a look at the JVM 102 Fix link in my signature below. If you follow those steps precisely, that should get you where you need to be. Let us know how you make out and if you have any additional questions.

    this is the error i receive when trying to use application loader:
    A fatal error has occurred while updating your device's software. Please try again.

    Device communications error encountered. [A:0x0000000E]

    it gets as far as the first step and then throws this error. WHY OH WHY did my bb die for no reason!
