| | 8130 Randomly Turns Off - Blinking Red Light
Please Login to Remove!
Here is my situation.
I bought my BlackBerry 8130 less than a month ago on a 3-year plan. In that short amount of time, it managed to accidentally fall, and since has water damage (from talking in the rain, i assume. there's no other explanation for it...I wasn't aware the device was so sensitive...)
ANYWAY, it worked fine after the fall for a few weeks until yesterday where I was on the phone and it randomly turned off and the red LED began to flash. It wouldn't turn back on! I stressed out.
I come home, take out the battery, let the phone sit for a while, put the battery back in...aaaand no luck. I try this process repeatedly until finally the phone shows an hourglass and turns back on! I was so relieved...
Then, it dies again, in the same way it did before with the flashing LED. I took the battery out again, blow dried my phone this time, let the phone and battery stand separately, re-assembled and it's working again...but I'm not sure for how long.
I'm curious if someone else had this problem? If so, is there an easy way to solve it? Or does the blinking eventually go away? Or will I have to repeat this process forever?
