My Blackberry Bold is locked in a permanent loop of "App Error 200, reset."
I tried the two solutions listed here (connect to downloader and reload software) but the "delete all" buttons are greyed out.
I tried with and without the battery in, always got the same problem, so I thought I'd delete the applications I could and see what would happen (mainly games and docs on the go stuff - couldn't do anything with the email app and didn't see the main application).
After deleting those, it just goes into an endless loop of app error 200 and the application loader can't connect to the device anymore. So it seems I've got a brick on my hands. How do I reset this thing so I can get past this problem? The instructions say not to remove your blackberry until the app loader has finished, but it's been 20 minutes trying to connect now and nothing has happened...
For what it's worth, when I tried the battery out approach to the app downloader, the PIN number didn't come through, it was either unknown, or just zero.
Any help would be most appreciated! If there is someway to do a hardware reset, that'd be great, maybe then I can get it to work.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
While I've never had to use them, here are some instructions I came across for dealing with a brick-BB. Hope they help you!

Thanks for that. One of the first steps in that very detailed set of instructions was the clue I (hope I) needed. That was to upgrade the desktop manager. I was using 4.6 (came on the CD-ROM with the device), have now upgraded to 4.7 and it seems to be working... Hopefully I'm underway to recovering my blackberry (after five minutes I'm on task 185 of 445 in replacing all the lost software).
Thanks for your prompt reply, much appreciated!

Yee Haw, that procedure on the linked site worked, but first I had to reboot my computer as the other procedure caused Blackberry Device Manager to hang.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks again for your help, it's debricked, but now I can't figure out how to set it up. I've lost email capability (it worked for a couple of hours, but now tells me I don't have messaging set up). This is driving me crazy!
