Re: Finger Print Scanner

There is either one of two problems... 1. if you got it from a garage sale the user has to delete his account from the finger print scanner by putting his finger on the scanner and then pressing reset. 2. Your device is not compatable with the fingerprint scanner

If you did a "hard" reset and it doesn't work, it's a hardware problem... Send it in for repair.

What does JUM error 102 mean on my blackberry?

1. According to rim, the jvm 102 error is caused by a hardware issue....(a suspected 3rd party chip in the ptn)....simply loading hh software is a temp fix. it WILL reoccur again and again, sometimes in only days.

take it to service and repair, once verified that this is the jvm 102 error, they (the s&r dealer) are supposed to give you a refurbished or new ptn. if they have to ship one to you it is supposed to ship within 24 hours. they are also supposed to waive the normal exchange fee of $45.

if they dont do this, call bb supprt from the store and the rep from tier 2 will talk to the dealer and set him straight for you....
2. To fix this error, you will have to simply plug your BB into your PC and run the application loader.

If it is asking you for a password, the old user may have set this via security settings. If you do not know the password, entering it 10 times incorrectly with reset the BB to factory defaults

Not Loading Up

You may be in need for a ROM update/reinstall. It is pretty easy to do that. You can either go at HP's web site and download a ROM update for your specific model. Make shure you select your operating sistem rigt. Or you can browse the internet for a specific ROM update for your model. I recomand the HP site, and if you have problems regarding the ROM update process, or the ROM and OS version you need, please reply here and I'll guide you throught. Good luck.
