If you have the newest Desktop Manager you can attempt a recover with that. When the DM is up, connect the failed blackberry, at this point you would get a message that says unable to connect to the blackberry. Try hitting the "Update" button and see if this can recover it.
That method recovered a bricked Blackberry Playbook I was working on for one of my users.
