    Whats wrong? Keeps restarting??

    Advertisement



    Alright so the problem is as soon as the Pearl boots up, it will "restart" and go to a black screen and the LED will start blinking, 3 blinks, then 2 blinks, and then it repeats the pattern.....I used JL_Cmder to wipe the phone, but even when it shows the 507 error on the screen, a minute later the phone will go to a black screen and start doing the LED thing. Anyone know what the heck is going on??

    I have to do it the way in that guide, I have to take out the battery, then connect it, and then the computer will recognize it.

    Have you tried reloading your OS yet?

    Yup, a few times...same thing happens, it'll boot to the home screen once, and then just start doing this blank screen blinking LED thing.

    My old pearl was missing a pin in the usb port. I would lose connection if the cable moved which would sometimes restart the Pearl like that.

    Send it back to TMobile or Cingular....its defective. I had the same problem, nothing will cure it of its rebooting. Beleive me, I completely wiped/loaded/reloaded the OS about 4 times before I realized it was the hardware and not the software.

    i bet i know what it was...

    the pearl has a few mechanisms in place when it boots up... it checks to see if the screen is connected... etc etc. If one of these checks fails the phone won't boot or sometimes not even look like it has power.

    I have this nasty habit of taking apart my blackberries once a week. tweaking..cleaning..

    Man this sucks. Honestly I don't know what to say. If reinstallin the OS didn't help, wat will... Hmmm sorry to say but I'm afraid this might be a hardware issue.

    I might be wrong thou.

    By the way have you tried a master reset? Just a thought. It might help actually but it might also delete all of your data even if you back it up.

    If your dm doesn't detect it anymore, maybe try goin to options on your dm and then goin to connection settings and try changin the ports or some.
