Hi there!

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.

BlackBerry Curve 8520 signal swing


#1 Your BlackBerry does not have sufficient Power
Check the battery charge level as shown by the battery icon on the top left of the home screen. No Power - Battery Charge Indicator does not show a charge or is very weak. The battery icon may be red. Charge the battery.
#2 You are Out of Network coverage area
Check the Signal Strength Indicator on the home screen. (1 to 5 bars, as shown below, indicating signal strength). If there is no signal, you may be out of range of the network.
If you are sure you are in range of the network, but show no signal strength, press Alt-Right Shift-Del at the same time. This will cause the BlackBerry to reacquire a network connection.
The process for this procedure is:
  • Press Alt-Right Shift-Del (The Del key is also the Backspace key.)
  • The screen will go blank, and an hourglass will appear. Wait for the hourglass to go away.
  • The startup screen will appear. Wait for it to go away.
  • A screen that says Verifying Security Software will appear. Wait for it to go away.
  • Check the Radio Tower icon.
If you are in Coverage Area of your Service Provider, You will get the network.
#3 Your Data plan is switched Off.

App error 523 on blackberry curve i cant fix


Hello

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

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.

Blackberry curve won't turn on...


Wipe it to start over. Sometimes when you change or add something like a THEME or a download it HOSES the BB completely. So delete what was on there and don't download a theme or any other wacky add-on.

To Sanitize or Clear out all the information in a Blackberry Device
Scroll to select the OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY and press [Trackwheel] to select.
On some units you may have to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the security.
Scroll to select the WIPE HANDHELD and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select CONTINUE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Type blackberry on keyboard to confirm the action press <-| key.
System responds with ERASING INFORMATION.
