| | Same issue here with 7290
Hi, just a quick question. Have you managed to do a restore of the device software?
My blackberry 7290 is in the same state, a double red LED flash every few seconds and the screen is blank. I have tried to re-download the 4.1 release of the software but it does not seem to be able to talk to the blackberry in this state. I beleve that what ever has happened, the double red LED flash means that the very low level firmware or bootloader in the blackberry is in a state that cannot be recovered.
Does any one know what the double red LED flash means?
I answer to your last question. When I changed the device software when my blackberry was working, it wipes all the service books, settings and everything else on the device. The only way to restore them is to be able to do a device backup and restore. If you cannot do a backup using the desktop software, then the information on your blackberry is gone. I would sugest that you contact your supplyer if it is still under waranty, they may be able to extract the data from the blackberry by some other method.
