Please Login to Remove!

I have a blackberry torch 9800. I have determined that the phone is bricked. (light goes on for 3 second goes off for about 10 again and again, also connects and disconnects from computer.) But i need help on how to undo the brick. Please help me it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Steven.

Did your brick get dropped or did it get wet?
Did it ever work properly?

Steven, it is best to not dribble out the relevant information with successive posts. It complicates troubleshooting and generally irritates the people trying to help.

Also, my advice is that it is very unlikely anyone here or on any forum is going to be able to tell you exactly what you did and how to fix it, or be very effective at troubleshooting this problem from a distance.

Who knows. Maybe you zapped a chip with static, which I am only assuming is a possibility. As I say, the possibilities are numerous.

Just curious. Was the screen you used the exact same p/n as the original screen?

Look for markings on the parts and then compare to part information from vendors....but that was a rhetorical question to illustrate a point. Trying to troubleshoot your issue is a game of 10,000 questions with no hope of fixing the problem. Throw the thing away and chalk it up to experience. Next time research and plan the job first.
