Event notification sounds playing for no reason

I have a Blackberry 9320 and for the past 4 days my phone has been making the event sound that when you plug in or  out usb and charging it keeps going but it is not even being unplugged or used. it is very frustating as it does it randomly and also in the middle of the night. Please help

Re: Event notification sounds playing for no reason

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

Best!

Re: Event notification sounds playing for no reason

Hi

I know about the Reboot for the Blackberrys and I have done this almost every day to try give it a jolt or something but yet it is still doing it. I also clear the cache every week and reboot to make sure my memory isnt overloaded. So this doesnt seem to be helping. It work by doing that a while ago when it did it before but it has not worked yet this time round and it is so frustrating.

I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:

  • KB17877 How to start a BlackBerry smartphone in Safe Mode

It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens.

 

If the behavior ceases, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.

 

If the behavior continues in Safe Mode, then you may need to consider more drastic actions -- WIPE, OS Reload, BBSAK Wipe/Reload, etc.

Good luck and let us know!
