View Full Version : 8830 Locks Up

12-18-2007, 09:48 PM
I have the VZ 8830, and have a very strange problem with it. About once a day, for no apparent reason, the flashing LED, which normal is green, turns red with a very long cycle of on/off flashing. At that time the screen blanks out and nothing will bring it back. The BB itself is locked up. The only thing that will resolve this is to pull the battery. Our BB "expert" at work has no idea what is causing this.

Any suggestions?

by any chance you have auto on/off set??? (options=>auto on/off) if not backup data and try reinstall device OS see if that fixes it

good luck

It's still doing it after I wiped the device clean and reinstalled the latest OS. Verizon is sending me a new (refurbished) unit, and we'll see if that fixes the problem.
