Default Blue component

Hi all

On the contrary to the last of my postst it turns out the blue component is most likely to be a capacitor..

How long ago have you soldered the connection points together? I realy hope it wil work that way, that would save a whole lot of trouble!!

Thanks for reacting y'all!

I would not suggest putting a "tin bridge" in place of the missing component. Electrical engineers designed and put the original component there for a reason.

Default Component value

Hi

I also doubt the tin bridge is a perfect solution. Therefor I'm looking for a bb 9000 bold that went swimming or fell into an obyss so i can solder the piece off an mesure it, this is the only way to figure out the right value of the component. So if anyone knows anyone with a very very broken BB 9000 bold I would realy like to get my hands on it!

Kind regardssss

solder bridge along the two pads is fine, most general fuse repairs on boards are done this way lol.

Hello everyone!
I'm from Brazil and I have put together a BBBold 9000 that had the same problem. Just soldered the two points where the component was missing. BINGO!
He returned to work perfectly. But let's see how long. I'll post good or bad news as soon as any.
hugs to everyone.

Default Re: BlackBerry Bold 9000 Insert SIM Card and SOS Signal

I have this same problem.

The phone is defiantly unlocked as all the settings on the SIM card are set to "Disabled". I got a brand new SIM card from Vodaphone yesterday, yet it still does not recognize the Sim. I have wiped the phone, done numerous battery pulls, yet to no avail. Would reinstalling the software or updating making any difference? As the phone is unlocked i don't see what else i can do?


The SIM is a 35 p/m contract that was originally bought with a Storm, could it be this that is stopping the SIM working seen as the phone was exclusive to the network?

Default Re: BlackBerry Bold 9000 Insert SIM Card and SOS Signal

I just wanted to say thank you for this thread. I bought the nightmare Blackberry from hell on EBay. It was SIM locked (thank you MML loader ) but I also found it had the no SIM error.

Under a microscope and with a meter I found the blue link was open circuit and a Google search found this thread.

Bridging the blue link fixed the phone 100%. I suspect the link is simply just that a link and not a fuse or a resistor as there are other examples on the board and they have no markings and zero resistance.

I would have thrown this phone back at the seller and made a PayPal claim but I already contested its non arrival and closed the case when it turned up seemingly working. I failed to check it with a SIM which was stupid and as I closed the claim that option is no longer available. Any bridging the blue link saved the day.

Thanks to everyone:

I had the same problem: used a pen to remove the SIM-Card and - by accident - broke the described contact. Error in German (just for the people who search for Blackberry and Sim Karte kann nicht gelesen werden in Google)

A Blackberry Help-Center here in the south of Berlin explained (AFTER paying 40 Euros for that) that it is IMPOSSIBLE to repair the BB while making me the offer to swop the broken BB against a used one for 280 Euros.

So I found this page, bought the special screw driver, made a tin bridge as described and voila.

You are perfect. Thank you for this information.

Just have to stop now because I am getting a call on my self repaired BB
