Sidekick 3: System crash and big X, won't start up

When I turn on my phone it reads:

SYSTEM CRASH @10007F54: EVT1 and earlier versions are not supported.

This shows up on the icon screen and won't move past this. There is also a big red X through the screen also.

I have tried a hard restart and taking the battery out. I have called the techs at T-mobile and I do not have a warranty.

Please help!!!!

HOW TO DO A MASTER RESET ON A SIDEKICK 3 NOTE: Performing this will restore your device back to factory defaults, meaning you'll loose everything on your sidekick!
1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device. 2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad. 3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET. 4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted. 5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device. 6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factory settings.

My Yahoo Messenger hangs then it would say (not responding...). What can i do to fix this? Help me please?


Few sugesstions :

1) Check whether if your windows is installing new updates, sometimes YM does crash when window is updating. If you are using Win7, then just go to:
--> Control panel/ System & security/ Windows Update/ Change setting. In the setting panel, you will see " Important Updates " box selection. Change it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them". Restart your pc/laptop, then try log in to your YM.

2) *This step won't be necessary but won't do any harm too, go to:
Control Panel --> System & Security --> System --> Advance System Settings. In the " Advance " tab, click "setting" at the " performance " column. Select " Data Execution Prevention ", select " Turn on DEP for all programs & services except those i select", Insert your YahooMessenger.exe (C:/Program Files/Yahoo!/Messenger/YahooMessenger) into the add list. Restart PC/laptop & try to log in to YM.
3) If those won't work, uninstall your current YM, restart your pc/laptop, then try installing a new one.

** If it still crash, then your internet connection might be the problem, & also, Yahoo! can be down sometimes too.

check t-mobile support for firmware update.

If you can't get one from tmobile support you will most likely have to send this one in for service.

I was playing need for speed and it kicked me off. it always kicks me off at at the same part of the game. this is what it says: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: Speed.exe...


need for speed game
how was it installed. (off CD or off Steam or other service for games?
if yes, contact them and ask.
or is this a internet streamed game
try tell what you have first then ask a question.
what are you playing it on, AND HP computer>
if yes which one, and model full name.

my guess the above is crash dump (system application crash no a car crash)(haha)
and what OS, operating system?

the 3 causes of this are.
1: bad hardware the system even bad memory.(more..)
2; bad software system (OS, video drivers, etc or viruses)
3; bad game code, get the latest version or your game
or then reload it toatally if no newer version reload what you have,(unstall , install)

Crash


When firefox crashes, it creates a report that explains the crash and possible causes. If your firefox can open the point where you can enter addresses, you could type - [about:crashes] to access these reports. pick the report that is similar to your crash and you can send it to Mozilla Firefox for clarification.
However a series of known issues could be causing your browser to crash; For example, if you have old version of the Google tollbar installed in your firefox broser, it could be the cause behind the crash. Also, if you have the vlc media player plugin installed, your browser might crash when you try to play videos that would play with Windows Media player by default. In addition, if you have Yahoo Messenger installed, trying to aces yahoomail could cause the broswer to crash. And the list goes on. So the thing you could do is try and remember what plugins you could have installed or updated, what software you installed prior to your firefox crashing and uninstall them, or even simply disable them for a bit. In addition, check and make sure your Anti-Virus is really up-to-date and that A full scan happened most recently. Malwares are prone to causing random computer behaviour

Sidekick 3 system crash


ok the exacct same thing happened to my phone... what i did was i kept taking out the battery, and seeing if my phone would work. there r few things that can happen everytime you take out the battery aand put it back in:
-it will show the menu button (the bottom left button on your phone) in black and white
-itll show the red x again
-the backlight might or might not turn on
-itll start up and work normally
these things will happen everytime u restart ur phone affterwards, and, usually, ur phone, even if it starts up, will go really slowly and eventually freeze, forcing u to repeaat the battery cycle.

after a while, it became worse, but, after fdoing thte battery thing over and over, it finally started up, and took me to a reboot screen, where it showed me a tiny clip art pic of a sidekick with a =P face that was broken. then it showed me the reboot screen, asking me if it wanted me to reboot, and, afercliking yes, it starteed working again

Emulating a Hard Reset
The Sidekick 3 now will commit memory-resident DataStores to flash memory when the device is powered down or rebooted normally. This greatly reduces the incidence of "hard reset" resyncing of the device which enhances user experience, however it makes it more difficult for developers to test this functionality on the device. You can simulate a hard reset on the device two ways: 1) Yank the battery out of the device without shutting it down. This will force a hard reset of the device, but it's not recommended as this can also potentially corrupt files on the miniSD card if they're being written when this happens. 2) (recommended) Follow the steps below to clear the datastores off and simulate a hard reset:
- Reboot the device by pressing @+1+0
- IMMEDIATELY press and hold the 'R' key on the keyboard. Continue to hold the 'R' key down
- The device will reboot, and when the initial boot screen (the 4 face buttons animation shows) displays, the screen will clear and the device will reboot again.
- Let go of the 'R' key at this point, and the device will reboot with no datastores, and force a resync.

Sidekick 3 has big red X on screen


You can try hard reset to see if that will clear it. With the unit powered on, pull the battery out.
