Hi deviousdevil and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


To clarify, since dismissing the alarm, the BlackBerry Z10 LED has not stopped blinking?  Do you have any apps installed which modify the LED notifications?

Re: Blackberry Z10 led blinks red 5 times

I have the same problem, my phone is on this morning because it doesn't have the auto sleep mode (on and off), I was accessing a web page and had to access my contacts but the app would not open, I did a reboot by holding the power button and selecting the restart BB option and then kept getting the 5 blinking LEDs... 1 long pause followed by 3 short blinks and then 1 blink wiht a long pause. Tried battery pulls, removed my SIM card and SD cards and inserted again. With battery inserted does the same flashing LED.


Tried to access device from BB LINK, but the program doesn't recognize my BB, the Device Manager recognize a BB device but the Z10 (STL100-3) would some how disconnect and shows 0 connections.


I run stock BB OS with the recent OS update, which was supposed to be stable.


Does BlackBerry read these messages, a lot of people is experiencing this issue. I've read the CrackBerry forums and a lot of people is experiencing this as well.
