Hello I just set up a quick test using the 9530 and it runs ok using setInterval function.
Here is my test page that I ran on a 9530.
I would suggest you do as Xandrex suggested and work up from the bottom, get the most basic function working first then build it up.

In the code you posted you are missing a " from the script line.
I don't know if that will help, but the BB browser is very delicate! :-) and something like that will cause problems.

Many thanks for your two posts. I've changed several details of my script, none of which seem to matter in IE and FF:
1) a missing "
2) changed ' to " in the line for setInterval
3) added a ; in the line for setInterval
but, it still won't run repeatedly on 9530.
How do I get exception reports from the simulator to help identify problems ?
How do I keep the simulator screen from going dark after a few seconds of inactivity ?
Does your script also run on the 8330 ?
If there aren't any timer functions for 8330, what is the workaround to provide repeated updates (of images) ?

Which version of the OS are you using? Is it v4.3?
navigate to - OPTIONS - ABOUT
to find documentation - http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/docs/subcateg
and select the version you are testing.
Are you able to give me a link so that I can test it on my simulator?

Thank you again for your reply.
Here's a link to a script that works fine in IE and FF, but not on either 8330 or 9560:
It should update once per second (ms = 1000).

You don't have a choice using the simulators but you can upgrade the OS on the actual BB devices.
The documentation explains this.
Goto - OPTIONS - ABOUT
This tells you the version.
check out this webpage out on your 8330 simulator
It is an example of how setInterval works. This works on v4.3 - 8330 simulator.
Have a look at the code in IE to get an idea of how it works.

Here are my test results:
1) 8330 -- runs your test script ok. Says my script is running but does not update my images.
In both cases, I checked the MDS-Simulator DOS window and I see where it downloads only one image.
I can't find "Goto - Options - About" on either of the two device simulators.
How can I get an error report from the device simulator to find out where the problem is ? Have you been able to run my test code ? Does it update ?

My test script runs fine on both the 8330 and the 9350 simulators.
Send me an image of the "Browser Configuration" page for the 9530.
Navigate to a webpage in the blackberry browser - click the "Menu" button (7 small circles, select "Options", select "Browser Configuration"
To get the version click the "Menu" button (7 small circles) - then click "Options" (spanner) - then click "About"
I couldn't test your script as the link has only worked once in IE. I get a Network Timeout error all the time now.
