Re: blackberry problem

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

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!

Re: blackberry problem

I'm sorry, I do not understand. Were you able to get into Safe Mode or not? If so, then what you would do is remove the app you installed just before this problem started. But from your post, I cannot tell if you were able to get into Safe Mode or not...note that I did say it may take you several tries to find the proper sequence to get your BB into Safe Mode.

 

Also, if after you succeed in getting into Safe Mode and removing the app, then when you reboot into normal mode, if the problem continues, then there will be more drastic steps you will need to attempt.

 

Another thought -- is there any chance that this BB has become wet in any way? Moisture intrusion into a BB can cause strange behaviors such as this, and the timing of having installed that app may be mere coincidence...

 

Good luck and let us know!

Yes, do keep trying, as it is the least drastic method of attempting to cure this problem.

Actually, the results from water intrusion are completely unpredictable...any result at all could be expected, including that which you have. But, at this internet distance, there's no way to truly diagnose that.

I have no way to know if it will solve the problem or not...remember that I'm at an internet distance, and have only your words here to guide me as to what the problem might be. Plus, if you can't use that key, how will you perform an on-device WIPE anyway?
