Default Re: Phone won't turn on, flashing red light sequence, PC won't detect it

Please help! my Curve froze on me. It started today, there was a call coming in and it didn't let me answer, I kept pressing the keys and it wouldn't work, like it completely froze! Then i took ou the battery and it froze at the startup page where you actually see the upload line underneath the word Blackberry. It won't turn on. I tried taking out the battery several times today, I connected it with the wall charger, I let it lay without battery for 2 hours and tried again, nothing then I let it sit there for an hour to see if it was just slow in turning on, and NOTHING. I even tried connecting the USB from laptop to it and see if I could turn it on by going on to the Blackberry Desktop Software. and still nothing. The battery is fully charged and there's not been any damage done to it at all, no water or hasn't been dropped. Please if someone has any clue please help! P.S I have no insurance on it and the warranty has expired,

I have a Blackberry Bold 9000. It had been working fairly well, besides the odd time that it froze up and I had to restart it. Yesterday it was working normal, until around 5:00pm. I looked at it and it had a black screen and basically was off. I tried to turn it on, and after a while it did come back on. However, almost instantly it turned off again. Now the whole phone looks dead, except for the red LED in the corner that flashes once and then again three times, in that sequence over and over again.

I've looked around on the internet and it appears that it may be a problem with the operating system(?) I've tried taking out the battery and reinserting it. Didn't work. I left the battery out over night and reinserting it. Didn't work. I had the battery out all day today and then reinserted it. Didn't work. I have Blackberry Desktop Manager on my computer but my phone won't connect to it. I open the program and it just says "Before you begin, verify that your current Blackberry device is connected to your computer." However, it won't connect at all. It won't let me even access the "Options" button in the corner. I've tried reinstalling the DM with no success.

I have also tried to go straight to the AppLoader. It won't work either. I open it, press "Next", it goes to the page "Communication Port Selection". Yet, I can't select any connection or press next because the phone isn't being detected AT ALL by the computer. It's as if it's not connected, even though it is clearly connected through the USB port.

I've seen a number of steps that other people have used to try to fix their dead phones. However, they always seem to have some process to do with AppLoader or the Desktop Manager (which are not working for me).

Hopefully someone out there has some sort of trick or suggestion, or knows something I may be doing wrong or have overlooked in my frustration. Thanks a bunch!

Red face Re: Phone won't turn on, flashing red light sequence, PC won't detect it

Hi guys, i have a similar problem but a little different. My bold doesn't want to start up also. I get a "PING" sound when i plug it into my computer, but it gets the disconnect sound shortly after, instead of a series of on/off's from the led i get a steady 6-8second long on-light, then it disconnects and shuts down. Sometimes the phone will look like it's going to boot up but goes to a blank screen and then shuts down shortly after without getting past the blank screen. I tried the process shown on the second post, i downloaded the OS, i got into the app loader and found my phone as an "unknown pin", ive even gotten far enough to select the OS and applications to load, then i'll get about half way through the install until i get to the "wait for device initialization" where it says "reconnecting to JVM" then i get a connection prompt that says "application loader was unable to connect with your device, please reconnect etc"



its also harware problem in my time try to resolved pimic(pts) ic the resolved.....

I have a BB 9000. I have the one red three red phone dead problem too. I have tried all of the solutions offered, but the com port still will not give me any connection port. It will not even let me check detect communication port. I have even tried it from the DOS backdoor, as suggested in an earlier thread. It flashes with the battery in, or the battery out. Plugged in to an outlet or cable to the PC. It shows nothing when unplugged. I've unstalled software, I've reinstalled software, I have rebooted the PC, I have tried everything.
I don't want to have to buy a new phone. This one was perfectly fine before it went red, space, red, red, red, dead.

Default Re: Phone won't turn on, flashing red light sequence, PC won't detect it

help! i have a non-booting bold 9000 getting the same 4 red flashes then a pause (which after a while becomes 1 red flash, longer pause).
bb tech support tells me it's a hardware failure - nothing to do, that reloading the op system won't help.
even if it would, that means a hard reset ie erasing all data first.

either way, MY TOP NEED IS TO RETRIEVE THE DATA first. (my last backup was 3 weeks ago and i have impt new contacts and memos.)(i know, i know....)

does anyone know a way to get the data off a bb in this condition into a retrievable form (such as a backup file i could restore onto a new device), or know a resource who can do it at some affordable cost?

urgent, and desperate - and grateful for your help! thank you!

If you cannot boot the device you are not going to get your data off of it.
