Default 8100 Bricked with Flashing Red LED

Please Login to Remove!

I put my ATT Blackberry Pearl on the charger. The next morning there was a flashing red LED (about 3 seconds on, three seconds off), and the unit wouldn't turn on. I've reloaded ATT's version of the OS-- DM reported successfully-- but once the program finished, the Pearl just went back to the flashing red LED routine again. (During the relaod, the keyboard and screen actually lit and the screen indicated that files were uploading from the computer). Tried JL_Cmdr to wipe or reset to factory, but no go; I'm dubious it connected, because I logged no info on deviceinfo, and got an "unable to open port" message on eventlog.

Also bought and charged a new battery. No change.

Can anyone help, or should I just toss the Blackberry?
