I am new to the Blackberry fraternity. Having decided to proceed cautiously, I purchased a BB 7290 on eBay. It arrived without manuals, nevertheless I downloaded the manuals but they do not help.
On installing the battery, a red light comes on and goes off then a box appears on the display with 2 lines as follows: " TCU Exception"
the Reset line is highlighted.
Even after installing the SIMM card and charging the battery, this message remains. I took the battery out a number of times and replace it but the message returns after a few a couple of seconds.
