You need to reflash the OS

When your device fails to start, it show one of these symptoms:

1. Totally dead.

2. Trying to restart, LED activity only.

3. Failed to start, a white screen with an error message.

__________________________________________________ ________

1. Physical damage, water is the worst enemy of delicate electronic device. Try drying it with a desiccant and replacing the battery. If there is no activity, you can still try the last ditch technique, nothing to loose anyway.

2. Your device is not able to start, something has gone wrong and the OS is corrupt.


3. Geeks call this an "Uncaught exception error". That is a polite way of saying, the last thread has terminated, the OS has halted because it is corrupt.

In many cases, the Application Loader can be used from Desktop Manager or Windows.

If that fails to connect, there is one final solution. Go Old Skool ...

__________________________________________________ ________

The good news, starting from scratch, you will be back in service in a couple of hours. keypad wont respond - biggrin.gif

Note: Windows 7 beta is not compatible with these instructions.

1. ...

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

My TI-83 PLUS wont turn on


Remove one battery from the calculator and then press and hold down the CLEAR key while re-installing the battery. While continuing to hold down the CLEAR key, press and hold down the ON key. If this doesn't work, then hold DEL and then ON. If unsuccessful, remove all the batteries, including the lithium watch battery, and leave the calculator like that for a while.

This is documented in the TI-83 Plus Guidebook, but unfortunately, not many people know about it.


If that doesn't work, send it to TI for repair. They probably won't even charge you!

All of a sudden my keys on blackberry curve will not work, side buttons (camera, etc) ) WILL NOT RESPOND, all it will do is boot up, i can scroll up and down but cant click on anything....i didnt get it...


Hi
sinc your side key also not working seems like your phone is moisture damge from track ball area.
IF your keypad lights up that means the keypad is not loose.If not then your keypad connections are loose.
you may have use the track ball with your hand wet that cause this problem.
basically you need to clean your phone from inside.
thank you.

Nothing transfered from the lens (ccd) to the screen/memory card


Greetings Maltheskalle,

Units that experience water damage are normally irrepairable even after drying out. I would take it to a qualified repair center and have them give you an estimate on repairing the unit. You may find that replacing the camera is more economical than repairing it.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

Take the battery out then push some buttons - the zoom buttons or the release button - til the LCD goes blank. This sometimes resets the circuit if there is really no problem. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If the H reappears, there is a problem with your zoom. It'll have to go to a repair shop.
