pearl flip flashes red and wont turn on, please help

I have a Blackberry 8230 that won't turn on. When the battery is charged, the red light flashes very slowly (about 10 seconds on, 10 seconds off). When I plug the USB cable into the computer, I see the BB hard drive for a brief second or two, then it disappears. It will appear briefly again about 20 seconds later, then disappear again. Is the battery shot? Or could there be something else going on? The phone was on the charger all night.

have you tried checking if the Device Software on PC/mac detects the BlackBerry plugged in?

Honestly I am not so sure either. If it appears could you try to click restore when it appears? Tell me if it works!

Your best bet would be to take it to a local service center :smileyhappy:

Re: pearl flip flashes red and wont turn on, please help

You will need to use BBSAK or JL_Cmder to wipe the device and subsequently load the OS to the device. Follow the instructions here:
http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/How_do_I_wipe_the_BlackBerry_using_Jl_Cmder%3F
For BBSAK, here is the link: http://bbsak.org/

 

Once you get the device back to JVM Error 507, you can then reload the device operating system.
