    Thumbs down 7230 cannot poweron or connect to PC

    Advertisement



    hello,

    I am a total newbie, I got a 7230 handset from a friend but have no software or chargers or cables etc... the device will not switch on. If I connect to my PC using a standard USB cable, the red light on the device comes on for about 3 seconds then goes off.. also the PC recongises that I have a RIM handheld (sometimes), but does not install, there is no device in device manager.
    I dowloaded BB destop manager, but it could not detect the device.
    Any help will be very much appreciated ?

    Im not sure who your Provider is but you can go here from a PC and download the OS(Handheld Software) for your 7230:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    After the download finishes install it on your computer.
    If cingular is not your provider you will need to do a search on your computer for "vendor.xml" and delete it.

    Now that you have done that follow the steps here:
