Default BB 8820 turns on, but stops there.

Please Login to Remove!

So I've had my 8820 for 3 years or so and it has been pretty much problem free until now:

The only way I can get the phone to turn on and off is by taking the battery out or placing it back. When it does turn on, the OS loads and that's it. The phone is on, LED is working, etc., but none of the buttons or the trackball work. Once the screen goes to standby the only way to get it back on is with a battery pull.

I've tried reloading the OS with different versions multiple times and am trying to get a few more months of use out of this phone until the dakota hits. Any ideas would be appreciated.

hat did you do just before this began to happen?

Sounds like a corrupt file.

I would wipe with Jl_cmdr and reload the OS that came on the device. Make sure you are loading an 8820 OS and not one for an 8800 or 8830.
