Please Help,
I have had my Pearl for a couple of years now. I have never had any problems with it until now. I recently let my fiance use it and now, after one week, there is no lights, including key pad light, trackball light, or screen backlight. You can barely tell that there is any thing on the screen. it makes the click noises when I scroll the trackball, but doesn't respond to clicks nor does it scroll the selection. The time still advances, but cannot receive or make calls. I got a new battery,I did a wipe with JL Cmnder(and successfully reinstalled the OS) and still nothing. It is now stuck on the option to run the "Set-up Wizard".
She claims to not have got it wet or did anything abusive to my Pearl. She is trustworthy and I believe her. She is just "Bad Luck" with anything electronic.

Took Pearl apart, cleaned it, reassembled, still no luck. When I connect pearl to computer without battery, THERE IS LIGHT on the screen but with the "no battery" icon. Leads me to believe that the lights still work, just not properly. What now?

Again, Please help, and Thanx, in advance.

Please purchase a new device, and do not allow your girlfriend to use it.

She fskced it up alright. You can try re-loading your OS and see if that helps before going for a replacement. Worth a shot since it's free.

My response was the best: No Light, No Respond/Dead LED

You didn't like the answer:
