Default 7290 will power off ... but not power on!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

Just got hold of a Blackberry 7290 on eBay and, quite interestingly, while it nicely accepts to power off - there is no way to power it on the 'normal' way, i.e. by pressing the power button. Only solution is to go for a hard reset (removing the battery) every time.

I have reformatted the Blackberry (javaloader -usb wipe) and reinstalled the latest version of the OS, but it did not help.

Any brilliant ideas would be highly appreciated at this stage. Thank you.
