Blackberry Pearl, JVM Error 547

Last night my pearl kept lagging and then the next time i looked at it, it had started turning on and off to a blank screen. I took the battery out and put it back in but it had no effect on my problem. it says to reset and i have pressed the reset multiple times, however, it only restarts to the same screen

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 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 :]

White screen on my blackberry curve that's reading jvm error 547 flash write failed what does that mean

That you will probably need to reinstall the OS. Try doing this through the Desktop Mnager. If it works great. If not then you will need to wipe your phone (try using JL Cmndr) and the reinstall the OS.

Jvm error 547 blackberry 8320

try running app loader again but before you connect your phone up to the computer pull the battery out, then connect the phone, then put the battery back in. A lot of times it will force the connection to get established and then you should be able to run app loader.

Unfortunately to fix this JVM 513 error you will need to either restore a full backup via desktop manager, or download and reinstall the Blackberry handheld OS from your carrier. If u have found the solution, give me a good rating. Thankyou
