Red face dead berry help

Please Login to Remove!

Good morning,

I don't know what to do I have an 8700g that I had as a spare phone since I got my pearl, well I gave it to my 12 year old brother with conditions that I can repo it if I feel he is being a schmuck. Well the lil guy was running late for the bus and my Berry "jumped" out of his pocket. then he said it would flash to a white screen, very random. then last week I was missing the qwerty key decided to use it. I put in my sim card the battery then tried to turn it on white screen then she has been dead since then. I have since tried every thing with my limited tech. knowledge charged it I get a red light, then I tried "wipe" and re-install.
nothing but the red light for about 3-5 secs then nada.

any hope on a bringing the dead berry back??

thanks for any help.

How did you "wipe" the handheld? Try using JL_Cmder to wipe it and then reload the OS if you haven't already. Keep in mind that when the berry "jumped" out of his pocket that may have just done it in. If wiping and restoring doesn't work then maybe disassemble it and see if maybe the screen came unplugged or something simple. Beyond that you may have a dead berry.

Unhappy

I will go through the motions of wiping again. Since I cannot say with a straight face if I used the jml loader. Thing once I have searched and clarified what that is. Then I will pray once I open her up it can be fixed. I am just so sad even though I dumped her
