My blackberry pearl screen is not comin on the keypad light is not comin on but a redlight is blinking on top[


A blinking red light usually indicates a battery problem. If possible is there any way you can test the battery?

My blackberry pearl 8100 wont turn on. The screen is black and the red light blinks 4 times and then stops!


Your Blackberry probably just needs a firmware restore. Here's a guide on how to restore the blackberry firmware, the website is at : Restore Blackberry to factory settings. Download the Blackberry Desktop manager and run the application loader. If it asks you for a password, you can enter it 10x wrong and that will wipe the blackberry as well.

My palm centro began hot syncing by itself and I could not cancel it. It coming back. I took the battery out and waited a few minutes. Now it does not turn on at all and the red light stays on.


The problem is from the connectors on the bottom getting wet, slightly moist, oily from your hands touching it or just plain dirty. This sends an incorrect signal to the phone that makes it think the cable is attached and requesting what ever action is initiated by pressing the button on the cable, which is set by default to initiate hot-sync.

Two things can make this problem bearable or even resolve it:
Clean the bottom connectors to resolve the incorrect request for action being sent and/or reprogram that cable button action to do something different, like go to the phone's home screen instead of initiating hot-sync.

I take a packaged alcohol pad like they use at the doctors office (not a cotton ball, the fibers get stuck in the grooves and deposit too much alcohol in the phone) and wipe the bottom connectors down really, really well. then let dry. two or three times of doing this _always_ fixes the problem for me. I let a lot of alcohol get in there but the pads don't contain all that much extra which is why you should use the pads to keep from damaging you phone! (they are cheap at wal-mart.)

In the meantime, reprogram what the phone does when it receives (or thinks its receiving) a signal from the cable button press. On the centro, go to Preferences --> Buttons --> HotSync, then set the app you want to activate. I use "phone" so when the problem reoccurs, my phone keeps sending itself to the keypad, not the long long process of activating and canceling hot synch.

You will have to manually launch the HotSych application from the home screen when you synch if you keep that button the same or you can just change it back to the default when resolved.

Hope that helps!

Red blinking light


On certain models the blinking red light means you have a message. On others it is because you don't have service.

If yours has service and it is not blinking I would wait to see if it starts blinking when you get an email or message of some type.

While charging my O2 atom exec, the LED (Flash light) does not glow red ?


I have the same problem. What I did several time is to actually shut down the phone, remove the battery and leave it like that for several hours (3 to 4 hours). Then, I put the battery back in the phone, and it would charge again. However, due to the long time with no battery, the phone's clock would be reset to January 2007.

I found no other work around right now. However, I have to do this more and more often, almost once a week ...
