Pearl 8100: A similar "Blinking Red Light" Problem :-(
Hello everyone--like a handful of other people it seems my blackberry may have crashed. With the battery in all I get is RED *blink blink blink* *pause* *blink blink*...so five total blinks with a pause in between the three and two series.
I saw the guide to restoring the OS without connectivity to Desktop Manager...but I don't think I can do that because I did not back up the contacts before this happened. Is there anyway to still back up the contents of my Pearl? Desktop manager does not seem to see the pearl (which makes sense). If not...I ran a search for any .IPD files (BB backup format?) and I found one from last year...is there a way I can check to see if that file is indeed the backup file before I wipe everything in an attempt to get this baby back in action?
Thanks for all your help in advance!
doesnt that mean you have a message
Hi--sorry I probably wasn't clear. When I say the red light is blinking...that's all that the phone will do. It will not power up. No hourglass. No lighted screen...just the blinking light. The pearl seems to be completely dead.
man...I miss my pearl! This is the longest i've gone without having it!
Problem: 2 red blinks, pause, 3 red blinks --the phone will not turn on, no hourglass, etc....nothing...just the red light.
I've followed the guides with the exception of the JL wipe because the phone has contacts in it that I must have (didn't do a backup --
Is there ANY WAY to get the contacts off somehow?
