BB 9000 wont turn on - red light flashing

Hello and thanks in advance for any assistance,

 

Basically my blackberry bold 9000 (OS 4.7) has been having issues over the last couple of weeks where the battery would suddenly lose its charge and the BB not turn on until next connected to a PC.

 

Now the BB wont turn on at all (light flashing) and does not appear to be connecting to my computer correctly...

 

 

Basically I am out of ideas as to what to do next so would be grateful of an help

 

 

Things I have done thus far. (I have both a mac and PC so will try to separate what on what as best I can)

 

MAC (10.6.2 Mac Mini)

Plug in the BB via USB

Mac detects a blackberry (shows in 'About this Mac') BB desktop manager launches and searches for device until fail.

Red light goes solid for about 1 min then begins to flash 4 times (1111)

 

Tried and without orig battery + new battery

 

 

Windows (XP sp3 pro Mac Mini Bootcamp)

Plug in the BB via USB

Windows detects blackberry and installs driver.

BB Desktop Manger does not detect BB 

BB Device Manager does not detect BB

 

Tried running Apploader directly - get device unknown and it stalls on searching for ARM device

 

Tried JL_Cmder v1.9.0 - select any option - com error

 

Tried Blackberry MCP - detects device as 'PIN 0' but cannot perform any task on it (get the equivalent of cannot connect)

 

Also Tried

 

Charging both the original and new battery overnight via the mains charger

Anything else you can remember... moisture or water damage?

 

Did you really load OS 4.7 on the Bold 9000, or is that a type, you meant OS 4.6?

Re: BB 9000 wont turn on - red light flashing

my apologies, on a recheck it was indeed 4.6

 

I am very very sure there was no water damage.

the file systems of the blackberry do not mount on windows nor the mac (neither the bb itself nor the mem card)

Try doing a connect to the PC with the Media Card completely removed.

 

I'd always recommend a fresh reboot of the PC as well. Can't hurt. I've seen it connect after that.

yes, prior to its demise, it was  regularly connected to both the Mac and XP 

 

I was able to take backups and the like and the device was fully functional (praise be to backups :smileywink: )

Try this -- for the heck of it, rather than something more drastic -- at this point.

 

Remove the battery for a couple days. Remove the Media Card for now.

 

Now after a day or two, reinsert the battery and see what luck you have.
