red blinking light

I have the brand new blackberry torch, basically it won't switch on.  When you hold the turn on button, a red light comes up, then goes then comes back and then goes again and a little sand timer appears. I've tried everything, swapping the battery, charging it up, just everything and nothing seems to work. anyone got any other suggestions?

Hi Arren123,


Welcome to the Suppport Forums!

Have you tried backing up your device via the BlackBerry Desktop Software and performing a clean reload of your device software? http://bbry.lv/bpv7DT 


Hope this helps.
