Blackberry Storm LED blinking

Hopefully some one can help me here. I was working on a Storm and then left my app running for 30 mins whiole on lunch. I came back and my app was frozen and the handset was completely unresponsive. So I pulled the battery, and now all I get is the red LED flashing 1 times, then 4 times in a repeating pattern over and over again. I tried connecting to it through the Desktop Manager to re-flash it, but the computer cannot detect the handset. I also tried invoking apploader directly, and it doesn't detect it either. Any help????

if I were you, I'd take the official charger and charge your device for several hours.

I have had it charging for a few hours now. The blinking is not the typical low battery blinking, nor the solid charging blinking. It is a pattern, 1 blink, small pause, 4 blinks, longer pause, repeat.

Re: Blackberry Storm LED blinking

Any ideas? I have exactly the same blinking sequence with my Storm now and never saw this before on a BlackBerry device

Re: Blackberry Storm LED blinking

No fix was availsble. Had to order a new Storm from the carrier. Sorry that I couldn't provide better news.
