Default Goes Off and Won't Come on

Please Login to Remove!

My BB has suddenly started turning itself off with no warning after 30-90 seconds of use. It will not come back on unless I remove and replace the battery. After this hard reset, however, it shuts itself off again after a minute or so of use.

This auto-shut-down is abrupt: the screen suddenly goes blank and if I am in the middle of a call, I am disconnected.

Advice? Thanks.

Regards,

Konrad

Sounds like you may have a software issue. I would recommend that you backup your data (if you can) and then wipe it and reinstall the os. You can instructions on doing this from this very forum.
