Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Blackberry Pearl 8100c Screen blank out

Yes, I have Pearl and the other day I was making a quick call. When I got done with the call. My screen on the blackberry went blank to a white screen. I let sit for a moment to see if it goes back to the windows screen. NO.
I take the battery cover out then the battery to see if it would reset my problem. As soon as I put the battery back in it went back to the white screen background. Then, I try to push the power startup button (red button - use for many functions) aka the startup power mode. No it didn't work. Still blank screen.
I use my home phone to call my cell phone. It went to voicemail. Sensing the phone is in off mode. I did get a red flash on my cell phone that indicates that I have voice message. I hold down and press #1. It actually work and my phone talk to me. Good. I couldn't dial numbers since I couldn't see the screen. No sounds could be detected while trying any other functions. Just voicemail.

So my major problem is: How to get the blank white screen back to normal window screen mode?

    I've have the same problem! I have a white screen with the hour glass like it's trying to boot-up.Then the red light comes on and it shuts down for a couple of seconds and starts up and the whole process repeats itself. Let me know what I can do to get it back up running for good!

    I know have the same phone and the same thing happens.

    When i let my phone go to standby mode and then push a button, it might show the home screen but then go blank again within a minute or two.

Blackberry pearl - blank screen - phone will send and recieve calls but the screen shows nothing.

First, pull the battery out while the BlackBerry Pearl is turned ON. Leave the battery out for 5 minutes and then put it back on.

If same problem occur, contact the manufacturer and have them reload the OS/firmware on your phone.

That is the only solution. Thank you!

Screen might need to be replaced. Try CPR in New York City. They are faster than the manufacturer, and cheaper! They have a usual turnaround of 1-2 business days. And if you become a fan on their facebook page, mention it and you will get a 10% discount.
Here is the link to their facebook page, it has all the info you need.

Hope it helps!

Blackberry Pearl, JVM Error 547

IF ITS A PERSONAL PHONE CALL YOUR PHONE SERVICE PROVIDER ask if there is any special version of software you have to use.
try a hard reset (take the battery out wait 2 mins then put it back in) if that doesnt work...

BEFORE ANYTHING !!!! use the desktop software to backup your data (because you will be erasing ALL DATE on the device) on the BB (if you can) and save the file to the desktop. next go to need to download (use pull down menu)blackberry desktop software 4.6 and the blackberry devicesoftware (FOR YOUR MODEL PHONE) install the desktop software first thenthe device software.. this can take maybe an hour (not including thedownload time) once your done use your desktop software to restore yourdata

GOOD LUCK - Please rate this solution :]
