    Hi

    Advertisement



    My fathers BlackBerry hasn't been working for a while so he decided to get a new one, on getting his new one he was about to throw his old one out when I asked if I could have it. He said sure but he doesn't have a clue what's wrong with it.

    Now it is a BlackBerry 7100v. He bought it in the pub a while ago for £30 when he was drunk (lol), it had nothing with it, no charger, no software, no nothing. Now luckily it could be charged with my PSP USB cable that I would connect from my computer to the BlackBerry, when I do this the red light in the top right hand corner goes on Red.

    After a while of charging I turned it on and I got an error on the screen. I took a picture for you.

    The number under the circle says 507.
    (Edit - I cannot post images but anyone wishing to see it, PM me.)

    Now someone told me that it means I have no OS installed. Problem is, I have so software for it. All I have is the phone and a working USB connection. If there is anybody who can help me to resolved this so I can use the BlackBerry I will be truly grateful.

    I want to know if their is any software I can download for it so I can install the BB onto my computer as without the software it won't install via USB.

    So to verify. I have a BlackBerry 7100v. It has a 507 error on it when I turn it on and all I have to work with is a working USB connection.

    Thank you for you're time.

    Sam

    Welcome to PinStack shifty123.

    Check out the revelavant links on the BB FAQ & Guides page for where to get the latest OS for your carrier/device and how to update it. The specific ones you will want are BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites and How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry.

    If the procedure in that last link doesn't work, which is likely but try it first anyway, you'll need to follow the procedure in this thread, How To: ReInstall OS When Computer Won't recognize The Device Is Connected very carefully.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.
