Sad to say but being a Blackberry Pearl. It can be a number of different problems.

It can be the battery is fried, the battery pin connector is fried, the OS could be "nuked" meaning it just corrupted it's self. and so on and so on.

Blackberry Pearls have loads of problems.

Try Crackberry.com and visit their forums. They have professionals that dedicate their lives to Blackberry on there with tutorials, and all kinds of help

I'm sorry. I hoped that helped you out

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!

Phone turns into a white screen with hourglass in the middle then shuts off. happens several times a day.


Hi it is because the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone cannot initialize the BlackBerry Device Software or there is a corrupt operating system file.
To resolve this issue, reload the BlackBerry Device Software on the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone.
To perform an installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using BlackBerry Desktop Manager version 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps:
1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 2) Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 3) Double-click Application Loader.
4) Click Start under Update Software to start the installation process.
5) Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click OK.
6) Select Options under Device Software Options.
7) Select the check boxes next to the names of the applications to be loaded, and then click Next.
8) Click OK > Next > Finish.
9) When the process has completed, the message The loading operation was successful will appear.
10) Click Close to return to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
I hope this information will be helpful to you.

My blackberry 8100 is being switched off while charging.


Is it a new phone? If it's less then a month old see if you can return it, otherwise you can try reloading the OS.

So if you're willing to try that, do the following.

First download and install the Desktop Manager from here (4.6 without Media Manager is recommended): https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22

Next you can use the Backup and Restore feature present in the software to make a backup of all the data on your phone.

Next download and install the handheld software from here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp

Afterwards try reloading the OS by connecting the device to your computer, open the Desktop Manager, then go into the Application Loader. This will open a wizard that steps you through reloading the OS onto your device. More detailed steps can be found here:

Blacberry 8100 turns off when i press any key


Hi,

Looking at what you’ve posted, this is more like a battery problem let’s try some troubleshooting;

1.) Try charging the battery again: Keep the battery out for some time & then reload & check.
2.) If it's less than a month old see if you can return it, otherwise you can try reloading the OS.
So if you're willing to try that, do the following.

First download and install the Desktop Manager from here (4.6 without Media Manager is recommended): https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22

please follow the following. Perform a hard reset on the BlackBerry device. If the display is still not working, verify that the battery is charged by trying it in a different BlackBerry device. If the battery is working, download the latest BlackBerry Device Software and install it using Application Loader in BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

How to switch off the green and red LED ?


My wife and I both have Pearl's. I found that the problem on both of them was caused by Color Pearl, an application that allows you to change the color of the Pearl's trackball. It was not a problem until upgrading the Blackberry software to v 4.5. I tried rebooting, removing the battery, etc. The light always came back on after an alert. Removing the application ColorPearl did the trick. Just go to Options>Advanced Options>Applications and delete ColorPearl. Hope this helps someone.
