Unhappy screen backlight stopped need to recover passwords

Please Login to Remove!

The screen stopped working on my 8100 and all I need is the passwords from the password keeper app.

I am able to do a backup so I have that but can't find anyone with a blackberry and it's been a few days.

If I hold the phone at the right angle in the light sometimes I can barely see something on the screen. Do you think there's any way I could take the phone apart and use a flashlight to see enough to read what's on the screen?

Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Default Re: screen backlight stopped need to recover passwords

I've tried BBScreenStream and another one I can't remember the name of in hopes of being able to see my blackberry on my computer screen, but for some reason neither one accepts my password to access the device.

The Blackberry Desktop Software accepts my password no problem.

Anyone know how to get BBScreenStream to accept my password?

I might call a local shop that sells blackberry parts and see how much they'll charge me to restore my passwords on a blackberry and let me borrow it to write them down.

Nobody has any other ideas?

Thanks.

Wink Solution:

Of course.

Got the Blackberry Simulator running and restored my backup to that.

Voila.
