Default I need to know what is wrong with my blackberry 8330?

Please Login to Remove!

I dropped my phone and the back came off including the battery and the trackball. when i put everythhing back together and turned on my phone i got the usual red light but no picture or anything, i thought i had completely broken my phone, 2 minutes later my phone vibrates and i am getting texts, so i think the problem is LCD related BUUUTTT My keyboard or trackball does not light up at all and the inside below the battery, a metal encasing is slightly dented and i am not sure if that has anything to do with the problem. Hope someone can help me so i can fix it!!

Can you see the LCD now? Sounds like a really hard drop. You might have damaged connections and/or the circuit board. The good news is that if it is still operational at least you can backup all of your data to place on a new device.

Besides double posting you now get to buy a new Blackberry.

you don't need to know what screen you are on to do a backup

Correct. The only need for screen is to put in your password if password protected. Hopefully you had insurance and if you want another 8330 look in our WTB section of the site.
