Won't turn on/critical error

I turned off the phone to charge when I tried to turn it on, nothing, now the next day it tried to turn on and Critical error flashed. All I have done is taken the battery out and put it back in.

    I added new music to my memory stick, and now when I attempt to view the new contents, it says "updating music files" and then freezes, then pops up with the Critical Error CAA5 A1AD and just flashes it constantly..

    I have same problem. Flashing and critical error all the time. Can I find my first FW? I don't know which firmwear was on my phone at first place.

  • Anonymous May 25, 2009

    First, my phone would work, but without the back on.
    Then, I thought I needed to charge it or something, but then the critical error thing came up....so I took out the battery and put it back in like 50 million times.
    Then it started working again, but then it stopped!
    My phone wouldn't turn on, it would just flash Critical Error: CAA5 A1AD!
    But now, I just turned it back on and it worked!
    Then, I just closed it, and it SHUT OFF!!!

The problem with the phone is in the firmware. There are a few websites who will flash the phone for you for a fee or you can take the phone to a repair shop to be flashed. The water damaged one will need to be taken apart and cleaned first. If you have any questions i provide these services my self and i would be glad to help!

After losing my phone in the snow for three days, it had to dry out, it's been working perfectly fine, but here for about a week now, it freezes and wont let me push any buttons. Then I take the battery out and put it back in. Once my phone comes on, it keeps flashing "Critical Error CAA5 A1AD". Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Wow, alot of people have the same problem as i did. You phone is busted, broken. You can't retrieve anything from the phone drive. So all you have is your sim card.

Hello....my phone BLU Life play is completely dead now. The day before thanksgiving my phone was working perfectly find then of course. My battery. Was at 20% so I tried charging it and I notice that it...


Try using someone else's battery in your phone and/or your battery in their phone and try charging it and turning them on. If your phone turns on now, then its something wrong w/ the battery, if not... then its something wrong with your phone. Is there any possibility that it got wet? If so, take the battery out immediately (although its probably way too late after all the attempted charging), pour some rice into a small tupperware or other sealable container, snug your phone into the rice, then bury it completely in more rice and seal the container and LEAVE IT ALONE for at least a couple days. After u take it out and plug it in... go do something away from the phone for a bit... cuz it sometimes will take a while of looking like nothing is happening. I don't know what the notification light is like on that phone. But on mine, after probably 20 minutes of nothing while charging... the charging light started to flash (indicating that it is charging, but not yet ready to be turned on), once the light was solid on, turned the phone on no problem.

Phone in water


Don't turn it on. Take battery off. Put in a bowl or bag of dry white rice, Leave for 3 days. If you are lucky it will be ready to charge and like new after the rice pulls the moisture out.

V3 dead but keypad flashing


I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...
