Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Be very careful as you proceed...you only get a maximum of 10 attempts (it could be less, depending on how you configured it when you created the device lock password) to get it right before your BB wipes itself clean. If, when you connect via USB, you can get your PC display to prompt you for the password, then you can enter it via the PC keyboard...that will reset the counter (it's the same counter regardless of entering the password on the BB keyboard or via the PC keyboard when connected via USB).

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, 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.

Good luck and let us know!
