    My Blackberry 8700c does the same thing. the problem with the posted solution is that in order tp load new firmware, the device has to fully power up and that is the problem we are having....the device will not power up long enough for device manager to recognize it.

Hi Sam,

It is normal for Blackberry to load all its applications which takes few mins. However in your case the BB shuts off. I would suggest downloading the latest Device Firmware from www.Blackberry.com, and update your device with that firmware to your Device using the Desktop manager on your PC.

If not firmware then, check your device battery..

I hope this helps,

Thanks.

That's all my blackberry does anyone got an idea how to fix it?


If your BlackBerry stays powered off with a black or white screen, follow the instructions below. The only indication of life might be the blinking red LED light in the top corner. Nothing seems to wake it up and Desktop Manager doesn't recognize any device is connected.

1) Make sure you have Blackberry Desktop Manager installed.
http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/
2) On your PC, go to Start > Run and copy and paste the following line exactly (meaning with the quotation marks):

"c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader\loader.exe" /nojvm

3) The Application Loader Wizard will appear -- click "Next."
4) In the "Connection:" drop-down menu, you should see "USB-PIN: UNKNOWN". Click the "Next" button.
5) You should then see a list of applications ready to be installed for your Blackberry. Hit Next and Finish and you are well on your way to getting your Blackberry back to life. Congrats! Just don't disconnect anything and let the lengthy process finish completely.

NOTE: If you do not see a list of applications mentioned in step 5 and instead see the message "The Blackberry Desktop Software does not have Blackberry Device Software for the device that you have connected to the computer. Contact your wireless service provider or system administrator," then you must download Blackberry's Operating System for your carrier and device.

Just select the appropriate carrier and network type, select your Blackberry model from the list and download the latest version. Install this download and follow the above steps again and you should be on the right path.

It has a white screen and saying app523


Follow the below steps to get rid of this error message: 1. Take the battery out and put it back in after 30 seconds or so
2. While the device is rebooting (or while the hourglass is still spinning), plug it into the PC
3. Then open the application loader and remove the 3rd-party application that's causing the issue
4. Worst-case is when you need to wipe the device using JL_Cmder.

Hi , i bought a curve 8520 3 weeks ago and it has been brill ,however last night the screen went white wiv the hourglass..i hav took the battery out for several hrs..and then replaced it...and my phone...


Hi,
The BlackBerry has the feature on auto-start. When you insert the Battery, the device will automatically boot-up. It'll be showing an hour glass while loading the settings. But if it is longing for more than 10 minutes, there might be some error in the OS. It's better to contact a near-by authorised Service Center.
