Also, my RIM used to have a code w/ one blink and then 3 blinks and then a long pause before repeating and it would not make the computer do the sound when plugging it up...but now it's getting 2 blinks so I assume something changed for the better (as at least the computer sees something now).
This 6230 was working fine. Started having issues having to reload from a back up one time and then it started messing up (don't recall exact details...it's been months since I've used it. I've only had it for a few months w/ only a month of it actually working...it's been a paper weight since!
This is me to a "T" except I'm using a 6230:
I had this same problem, it wouldn't connect to device manager after I wiped it and showed PIN Unknown. I opened device manager and opened App loader, still said PIN unkown, but I clicked next and it Loaded ARM and erased and loaded OS(PS It didn't show Load ROM image or anything like usual). Then it said it couldn't connect after that, Then I opened up app loader again immediatly and it showed my PIN and I loaded OS sucessesfully. So it loaded something without the PIN unknown that caused it to be recongnized so I could load the OS.
