Blinking red light of DEATH!!
Hi guys!
In advance, thanks for your help! :smile:So here is my problem and I hope you guys can help a young gal out! I dropped my blackberry and it hasn't worked since. It wont turn on but it will for a few minutes, then will randomly shut off and blink like 2 times in a row in perfect intervals. After it turns off... it will not come back on no matter what. I have tried a different charger and even bought a new battery to put in it... But nothing has changed. Its still the same red light! PLEASE help me... Is there anything I can do that I haven't tried, before taking it to a repair shop and spending a bunch of money for them to tell me they can't fix it?!

Re: Blinking red light of DEATH!!
You seem to be contradicting yourself. In one sentence you say "it wont turn on" but then you say "it will for a few minutes". Which is it?

Regardless, it's probably a gonner. Electronic devices don't like to be dropped. If you know someone who can take a look at it for cheap, it might be worth it, but you should consider a new purchase.

Good Luck

If it is reconized by DM you may be able to reload the OS. who knows maybe the drop interrupted something but as devnull said it may be gone.
