Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
It's possible that a quick power cycle might help you.
Take the battery out of the device, press the power button 10 times and on the 10th time, hold it down for 10 seconds. This will drain all remaining power that still exists in the Blackberry.
Place the battery back in and attempt to boot the device to its normal state.
Was the device damaged in anyway that might cause this problem? If dropped in water or dropped on the ground from a notable height, you should definitely have a technician take a look at it. You can find a technician at one of your service provider's device support centers. Or, if you don't want to have to go anywhere to troubleshoot, you can contact Blackberry Support on a different phone and they should be able to help you.
Also, if you have a warranty plan, this would be cause to utilize it.
I hope this helps! Feel free to reply if you have any further questions.

Take your battery out for a minute and put it back in...it will reload on its own.

App Error 523 usually happens after loading incompatible 3rd
party software. Did you load anything
lately? You should be able to connect to
the device while it's rebooting (spinning hourglass) with application loader
and remove the offending 3rd party application.
Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help
