Default 8310 - boot up looping -

Please Login to Remove!

I am proud owner of a 8310 (6 Months)

Last night I noticed my BB whislt on charge was flicking (in Seq).
1st the indicator light
2nd the screen backlight with the little timer
3rd the keybaord lights up
THEN IT REPEATS whole process. over and over and over again

I have tried taking off power.
I have a full battery - still doing it.
I have taken battery out for extended period to effect a RESET but still doing it?

Does anyone have any clues what is happening and why and better still what must I do to fix it ?



PLEASE ADVISE - Your help most appreciated

Downr, welcome to the BBForums.

Use JLcmder to wipe the BB and reload the OS:
