    Do that and let it sit a while. Are you getting anything (like a backlight or led)?

    Are you plugged into the charger? If the battery went down too low the pearl will not come back up right away.

    Suggest you leave it on the charger for a while and see if that helps.....

    This sounds like what happened to my first Pearl the weekend of Spring Break when I was not able to get to a PC with a USB cable. I had to wait until I was back home to backup, wipe and restore the OS. It didn't last long as I had to eventually replace the entire device less than 3 weeks later.

    As mentioned by Cherri, if you have installed any apps before this happened that could have caused your device to malfunction. I guess re-installing the OS is the only option you have mate.

    This happened to me when I first put in my 2gig mem card. It was not compatible with my OS and so it would only show a white screen and a blinking red light. Did you get a card or intall any new programs?

    well I just installed a few new themes...from this site actually. .alx files which all have worked fine before I turened it off and it just stayed off. at the time it happened I had about 90% of the battery still.
    Well I just went to cingular and they filed a warranty claim so I have to wait a couple days to get a new one. Express mail is the option I chose because I need my BB back quick afast and in a hurry! But until then... I guess I just have to deal with it!
    Should I get the curve?!?!? I'm upset!

    Did it happen just after loading the themes or did it take a while?
