led is flashing and that is all it does.

Dear People,

 

I've got a Bold 9780- t-mobile for about 5 months now that will not come on. The led indicator flashes red  1 pause 2,3,4 fast flashing and then pause  5 and over again. That is all it does. I've been searching every where but I can't seem to find what it means.

I got home and have put it on the recharger worked like a charm. After an hour used it for a text message, not a problem. Went to sleep for about an hour and when I came back the screen was black and all it did was flash 1-234-5 over and over again. I have taking the battery out waited ten minutes put it back in and 1-234-5 just the flashing. My phone will not start up. The screen stays black. The flashing is like I never seen before starts with a 1 flash then an interval of 1or 2 seconds then 3 quick flashes again a short interval and another flash. This keeps on repeating. Even when you take the battery out wait for ten minutes or longer it just flashes the same sequences

 If you link it to computer the computer doesn't reconize him as well. I'm totally lcked out of the device.

Flashing is all it does.

 

Does anybody has an idea of what's going on?? Because I'm clueless :smileysad:

 

Is their a forum or a page where the different led indicator flashes are posted.

 

Heeelllllp cause now I'm using a Samsung crappy old whatever hold together with duck tape phone.

Want my bold up and running again.

Hi flashingled,

 

Welcome to the Suppport Forums!

Try going through the following steps to reload your device software when the device is not being detected by the computer.

1. Verify that your BlackBerry Device Software is installed on the computer. You can download it from your wireless provider's website in this list. http://bbry.lv/ad7CII
2. Remove the battery from the BlackBerry. Do not re-insert it.
3. Connect the BlackBerry to the computer with the USB cable.
4. Navigate to the file path shown here for your PC OS. http://bbry.lv/nPyBiQ
5. Open Loader.exe and follow the prompts.
9. When you have clicked Finish and the application load starts, insert the battery into the BlackBerry smartphone.

 

Hope this helps.


-FS

Thanks for the tip.

But I've send it away with T-Mobile.

Thinking it still falls under the warranty so it shouldn't be my problem.

Just hoping I'll get it back soon.

As soon as I get it back I'll have a rapport going with it telling me what was wrong with it.

I'll post it here for future reverence.

 

Thank you

Well I didn't got my Bold back. They've send me a new one. Apperently they could not fix what ever was wrong with it.

Thank me for backing my files up.

They did and I quote "a Boardswap" what ever that means. I got a brand new Bold so I really don't care

 

Hope this brings light on the subject for everyone.

And if there is any one who cab tell me what a Boardswap is enlighten me please.
