    Why is this assumed to be a printer issue? The mouse hourglass icon indicates an application is performing a task. More details are required for diagnosis. When does it appear, etc.?

I too have this problem and I have found how to correct it. It worked for me and hopfully it will work for you and others. Turn off your printer. Open the scanner cover. Turn your computer back on. That is what I did and it fixed it for me for now. Please send me an E-Mail if it fixed it for you. I have a sneaky suspecion that it just started working again and me opening the scanner cover was not the fix. Thanks, Wayne

My monitor has a hourglass screen and not a full screen please help


Look in your monitors menu screen. You will see a setting to change that. On mine it is labeled "Pincushion", it bends the middle of the screens image to compensate for the curve of the glass

Frozen hourglass symbol on mp4 screen


If you are using Mac, you must use USB to connect to connect to itunes. If you are using Windows you MUST use Firewire. I don't know why this is but each system won't recognize the other's connection medium. Make sure you are using the correct cable. If my wire connection doesn't work then it is reversed. Try it the other way around. The only other thing I could think of is that you are trying to upload an MP4 that the system doesn't recognize. try a format converter if this is the problem, they can either be demoed or bought four 20 bucks or so.

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
