My Device: Blackberry 9000 I think

Blackberry Bold is dead please help.

Have Blackberry bold on Telstra Network. SIM is currently removed so I can use it on a working phone.


When not plugged into power there is nothing. No LED no nothing. Plugged into lap top or power I get LED but no screen just black. The Phone does not try to go through a start up.


I use both windows seven and windows XP. I have OS 5 and BDM


When plugged into laptop the USB noise happens like normal. No response from the phone though and BDM will not connect the phone.

What BDM does do when I connect the phone in windows 7 is place a little icon in the tray.  When I click the icon it brings up BDM properties, which then tells me there is a Blackberry 9000 connected. But that seems to be the only recognition I can get.


After uninstalling and then re-installing desk top software it goes through the install new hardware when plugged into the lap top. The BDM still does not connect the phone.


I have tried running Installer.exe using the UNKNOWN USB process. No Luck after following directions in places i found. Will not detect the phone.

I have tried LJ_cmder (or whatever it is called). No Luck. Will not detect the phone after many attempts to do it quickly.

Installed BBSAK. It will not detect the phone.


I don't care if I lose everything off the phone but i can't afford $500 buckazoids for a new one.
