red light flashes twice then stops then flashes again

Hi, I am an **bleep**, who thought it was fine not to check my pockets before washing my jeans. Unfortunately, as well as my money, it had my blackberry in it. So my phone had a lovely 1 hour wash, and came out smelling lovely. I dried my phone out as soon as I found it, but it doesnt seem to be alive. Its on charge and is just flashing with a red light twice, then stops for a few seconds, then flashes again, and keeps repeating. So im just wondering if there is any way of saving it, or if its time to start looking for a new phone :/ My curve 8520 has survived 2 hours in the sea, so I dont know why my 9315 I think it is shouldnt?

 

 

Any help would be brilliant Smiley Happy

 

Thanks xoxo Smiley Happy

Hello Shinade,

 

Take it to a technician's hardware.

Re: red light flashes twice then stops then flashes again

If you're certain it is completely dried out you can try reloading the OS.  Here are some instructions:

 

1. First locate your carrier and the OS file you wish to use.

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp

2. Download the OS file from step 1 to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.

4. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml." Also check the following locations for vendor.xml files and delete any instances of the file:

On Windows Vista/7 navigate to C:\Users\YOUR_USER\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML (Where "YOUR_USER" is your username)

On Windows XP navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USER\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML (Where "YOUR_USER" is your username)

4.  Use BBSAK from BBSAK.org and wipe the device (after doing a complete backup) then after you get the error 507 (no OS installed) then proceed to next step.

5. Plug in BlackBerry and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
