Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

2 Answers

Multiple Blackberry problems on the same phone! Please help!

My Blackberry pearl 8100 is doing multiple strange things.

There are 3 major problems:

1) The blackberry is stuck on lock. Clicked the trackball, it did not respond in anyway, not even displaying the "Keypad is locked" message. Tried to power off, but the phone did not respond. The screen will go to black (like when you go too long without pressing a button) but then flash back on without me pressing anything or rolling the trackball.

2) After multiple battery pulls, I finally got it to unlock and enter the main screen. Now, however, anytime the trackball is clicked, the camera inexplicably turns itself on. I can back out of the camera, but anytime i try to do anything (use an application, read a message) the camera turns back on.

3) After even more battery pulls, a new problem occured. After rebooting, the camera will immediately turn on, and stay on. No button will turn it off. After a few minutes, a message will come up that resembles the save picture prompt, but it says the file system is full. The phone is now stuck on this message. Sometimes it will take a picture all by itself.



After multiple battery pulls and troubleshooting attempts, the phone continues to cycle through these 3 problems. I have almost 30 unread messages (at last estimate) and I need my phone to be back in working order wery badly.

Please, please help ASAP!

I think the easiest way to resolve as many of these issues is by resetting your blackberry.

Hold down ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys - I'm not 100% sure this works on your model but it is soft reset.

Go into Options, then select Security Options, then select General Settings, then activate the BlackBerry menu and select the option to wipe the device - Will reset all your personalised settings to default

Strange symbol on screen of my blackberry pearl


Generally rectangular box appears when you are in Roaming. After doing the Hardreset still if you are getting rectangular box in your handheld kindly walk into the nearest service center.
A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
I hope I was able to help you.
Thank you for using Fixya.

My blackberry 8100 can't open


If you are having problems with your Blackberry Pearl 8100, 8110, 8120 or 8130, you might want to wipe all of the data off of it and start fresh. You may want to try resetting the device first by removing the battery from the unit for about 5 seconds and reinserting it. If that doesn’t help things, proceed with these steps to erase all data on the device.
You may want to backup your data before trying these steps.
1. On the Home screen, select Options.
2. Select Security Options.
3. Click General Settings.
4. Press the Menu key.
5. Click Wipe Handheld.
6. Click Continue.
7. Type blackberry.
All the data on your BlackBerry Pearl will then be deleted.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Blackberry Pearl, JVM Error 547


IF YOU HAVE A COMPANY PHONE - CALL TECH SUPPORT
IF ITS A PERSONAL PHONE CALL YOUR PHONE SERVICE PROVIDER ask if there is any special version of software you have to use.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
try a hard reset (take the battery out wait 2 mins then put it back in) if that doesnt work...

BEFORE ANYTHING !!!! use the desktop software to backup your data (because you will be erasing ALL DATE on the device) on the BB (if you can) and save the file to the desktop. next go to https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=577BCC914F9E55D5E4E4F82F9F00E7D4you need to download (use pull down menu)blackberry desktop software 4.6 and the blackberry devicesoftware (FOR YOUR MODEL PHONE) install the desktop software first thenthe device software.. this can take maybe an hour (not including thedownload time) once your done use your desktop software to restore yourdata

GOOD LUCK - Please rate this solution :]
