Default Bold 9900 Unresponsive Plus Flashing

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I have a Blackberry Bold 9900, and am experiencing a fairly serious issue.
I left it plugged-in and charging last night, with the alarm set for the morning. The next morning, the alarm had not gone off, and the phone was - and is - unresponsive. I've tried taking the battery out for a few hours, plugging it in to the laptop (I don't have my Desktop with the Blackberry software with me at the moment), and pressing buttons. No matter what I do, none of the keys do anything, and it isn't getting any response when plugged into my laptop.
What is more interesting is that the red light at the top corner is continuously flashing, but very slowly. It comes on for about ten seconds at a time before going off, then back on for another ten seconds.

Thank you for your time, and help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you dropped it or had it near water or moisture?

What was the last thing you did tot he device before this happened?

Have you let the battery run down past 20% on a regular basis?

Will the battery charge using a wall charger?

No, it was not dropped, nor was it near moisture.

The last thing I did before it happened was leave it plugged in (via wall charger) with an alarm set for the morning. At that point it was working fine.

No, I usually start charging it around 40%, and leave it plugged in longer necessary (via computer cable).

Yes, it receives power via wall charger. If I have the battery in, it does the same lack of response with the slowly flashing light that I described. If I remove the battery and leave the phone plugged in via wall charger, there is no change, so it is receiving power from the wall charger.

Try wiping with Jl_cmdr (see the FAQ) and reloading the OS (see the sticky at the top of the 9900 section).

Any ideas that don't involve losing my data, since I can't create a backup with it like this?
