Default Blackberry Pearl Flashing Error - Can't Start

Please Login to Remove!

When I woke up this am and went to pick up my phone, the screen and keypad are both flashing white every couple of seconds. The white screen has the hourglass icon. The red message light is also flashing. I cannot get into the phone to turn on and it constantly flashes. I tried taking out the battery but that didn't do anything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

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

if that doesn't work then try this:

What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

You will need the Desktop Manager and the Handheld OS installed to your computer. There is a sticky thread at the top of the 8100 forum for the latest OS with instructions on how to load it.

Thanks for your response. I tried both of these options. It wouldn't recognize for option 1 and for option 2, It took about 4 hours to "erase applications," and then I got a communication error and it stopped doing the next 4 steps. The blackberry isn't recognized now and there are now 2 quick flashing red lights. The on and off flashing white with hourglass on the screen is gone. Screen is just black. Any other suggestions for troubleshooting? Thanks in advance.
