Question how odd

Please Login to Remove!

well, i've had my bb for well over two years now, and i've been able to figure out all technical difficulties
except for my current one
heres the story:
my bb pearl was low on battery today, so i decided to turn it off
when i tried to turn it back on, the red LED flashes,1-2 seconds pass, then the white screen+hour glass thing pops up, lasts for about 5-7 seconds, then the bb shuts off. repeat ad infinitum
heres what i've tried:
plugging it into the charger-----> same results
plugging into charger w/o battery---->this thing appears (no battery)
_
|\ |
| \|
plugging into charger w/o battery, then inserting battery-->same results again

any ideas?

Battery going bad?

2 years may be time for a new BB.

Maybe try a wipe with JL_CMDER and reload the OS

Agreed, start with the battery then if that is not the issue reload.

I would do the same.

How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

Good luck!

i think i have to get a new bb
because it won't stay "on" long enough to even connect to the computer, so that eliminates wiping it =\

no, you can use that, or the FAQ listed just underneath that one on the main FAQ page.... "What to do if Jl_cmder will not connect"
