My bb screen is all white and I cannot turn it off as well. Please help


Hello

First of all what you need to do is to perform a reset on your BB by hitting ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL your blackberry will reset itself. It will go black for about 2 to 4 seconds then you will see the famous blackberry hourglass. Be patient and in about 2 to 5 minutes your blackberry will reset.
ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL can be used for continuous hourglass issues, JVM Error 200 "White Screen" to name a few.

If that does not work then you should perform a battery pull by just pulling out the battery out of the phone while it is on this is also a reset option.

Go to your service providers website, download the software from there, and then install it on your pc. Once done, delete the vendor.alx(xml file) file, open Desktop Manager (DM), connect the BlackBerry, and follow instructions

The screen whites out n only way to get it back is take battery out n let it start back up


Hi there

Whenever your screen goes white again just hit the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL your blackberry will reset itself. It will go black for about 2 to 4 seconds then you will see the famous blackberry hourglass. Be patient and in about 2 to 5 minutes your blackberry will reset.

Try freeing up some space on your blackberry by deleting some unecessary files and do not run too many applications at once.

Hi , i bought a curve 8520 3 weeks ago and it has been brill ,however last night the screen went white wiv the hourglass..i hav took the battery out for several hrs..and then replaced it...and my phone...


Hi,
The BlackBerry has the feature on auto-start. When you insert the Battery, the device will automatically boot-up. It'll be showing an hour glass while loading the settings. But if it is longing for more than 10 minutes, there might be some error in the OS. It's better to contact a near-by authorised Service Center.

Regards

If the flipping hourglass stays for longer than 2 min our Blackberry may just need a firmware restore. Here's a guide on how to restore the blackberry firmware, the website is at : Restore Blackberry to factory settings.Download the Blackberry Desktop manager and run the application loader. Make sure you check to delete old applications in advanced tab. Carefully all you datat will be wiped.

Blackberry curve won't turn on...


Wipe it to start over. Sometimes when you change or add something like a THEME or a download it HOSES the BB completely. So delete what was on there and don't download a theme or any other wacky add-on.

To Sanitize or Clear out all the information in a Blackberry Device
Scroll to select the OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY and press [Trackwheel] to select.
On some units you may have to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the security.
Scroll to select the WIPE HANDHELD and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select CONTINUE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Type blackberry on keyboard to confirm the action press <-| key.
System responds with ERASING INFORMATION.

My blackberry 8700 will not come on completely. first - white screen comes up, following with the hourglass., then black screen comes up and LED ligt flashes red and then shuts off and then...


Hi Sam,

It is normal for Blackberry to load all its applications which takes few mins. However in your case the BB shuts off. I would suggest downloading the latest Device Firmware from www.Blackberry.com, and update your device with that firmware to your Device using the Desktop manager on your PC.

If not firmware then, check your device battery..

I hope this helps,

Thanks.

Constant hourglass symbol-draining battery


Hi, this is called the hourglass of death, the device is stuck in a reboot cycle.

You will need to reload the applications, but you can't use Desktop manager because the device resets and the connection drops.

First make sure the BB is unplugged, then go to Program Files > Common Files >Research In Motion > AppLoader and run loader.exe. Click next, it will say port : COM PORT 1 now is the tricky part you have to plug in the BB and COM 1 will change to PIN: UNKOWN , when this happens you have to quickly click next before it reboots again, then it will ask for pin and now has an connection with the device so you can go ahead and re load all the apps.

Good Luck
