Default my poor ol 7100t

Please Login to Remove!

Howdy all, i was trying to donate my 7100t to my little bro and when i handed it to him, it was working for the most part. he gave it back to me last night and now its showing device error 322.

So i tried to load the handheld software to no avail, after it detects the pin number, it reconnects to the device as an Unknown pin and then says that it doesnt have the software for the device. I hit add and i browse to the loader files and slelect all the alx files to load...still gives me the same error. So i try with the battery trick and it skips detecting the pin, and goes right to unknown and just stays there.

So i figure id try javaloader...ive tried all versions from 3.7 up to 4.2 and none of them can connect to the device, i usually get this type of error message:

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 3.7\bin>javaloader -usb wipe
RIM Wireless Device Java Loader
Copyright 2001-2003 Research In Motion Limited
Connecting to device...Error: unable to open port

OR

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE Component Package 4.2.1\bin>j
avaloader -u wipe
RIM Wireless Handheld Java Loader
Copyright 2001-2006 Research In Motion Limited
Connecting to device...debug: COM error during Open: (0x80040001)
Error: unable to open port

Others are sometimes more verbose, but its generally the same thing.

My question is, is this thing just a big plastic paperweight or does anybody know of any tricks to get this puppy working again?

If at all possible try from another computer. Make sure the device drivers are loaded and it shows as RIM Handheld in the device manager.

Is the BB listed in Hardware on the PC??

Start Menu >> Right mouse on My Computer >> select Properties >> Hardware tab >> Device Manager

Yeah, i should have posted that in the original post. It is listed, but to be sure i reinstalled the handheld software and removed the device. I plugged it back in and it recgonises it as a RIM Handheld. I also had a spare usb cord and tried that too and it didnt work, so i tried different usb ports too.

Well if javaloader / Jl_Cmdr will not connect to it then it might be time to write a nice obituary for it....

Sounds fried beyond help to me.... But to be careful, try on a different PC before humming taps for it...
