1) New to this forums, looking around, found it, and decided to join. Hi
2) Just got a BB Pearl as a birthday present, used by a family member before me, on Rogers.
3) The problem.
It started yesterday, when I took the Blackberry Pearl out of my pocket, and the screen was white. Can't remember if anything was on the screen, but I believe it was plain white.
I tried to shut it off, and that failed.
Then I took out the battery and tried to turn it back on with no luck.
Now it is charging, with a yellow light flashing.
If I hold the power button, the screen stays black, and sometimes the yellow light goes away, and returns later.
Please help me.
I tried getting BB Desktop software to work (installed it only today) and it says it does not have the drivers for the connected device.
I have no idea what happened.
Is it low charge? Or is it dead?
