Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290

1 Answer

Device error 400

Phone is totally locked, no matter what. unable to re-install device software, USB does not identify the phone. Desktop manager will not see the phone.

Pulled battery, waited 10 minutes and put back in. No luck. Is there a way to short out pins, or is there a reset somewhere that I can stick a paper clip into?

Here is what you do, providing you already have Blackberry desktop manager on your computer... do not plug your phone in, but have the cable ready to connect quickly. make sure you are connected to the internet as well. go to the blackberry website or google 7290 OS update, download newest version (4.1 or newer), enter you service provider etc. (you have to do this before it will download), save it to your desktop. install it to your computer, then open BB desktop manager. now with the battery in your phone and the message displaying error 400 reset - push the trackwheel in and quickly connect the cable and select install applications etc on BB Desktop manager. click next and follow the prompts, it takes some time, but it'll be back to new again.

Hi,

Cause 1 If this error occurs while using the application loader tool to install BlackBerry Device Software, existing applications on the BlackBerry smartphone are erased, and new applications are not loaded.
You need to complete the following steps:
  1. Verify that you have the BlackBerry Device Software installed on your computer. Before you use Application Loader to install software on your BlackBerry wireless device, verify that the necessary device software is installed on your personal computer.
    To verify what device software is installed on your computer
    1. In Desktop Manager, click Help>About Desktop Manager.
    2. Click the Device Software tab.
    The Device Software tab lists the device system software installed on your computer. If the tab is blank, then no device software exists.
  2. If your BlackBerry smartphone is connected to a laptop computer in a docking station, disconnect the laptop computer from the docking station and connect the BlackBerry smartphone directly to the laptop computer.
  3. If a third-party program, such as a virus scanner, is using the same communications port (COM port) as BlackBerry® Desktop Manager, close the third-party program to free the COM port for use.
  4. If you are using a USB adapter to connect your BlackBerry smartphone to a serial port on your computer, temporarily connect your BlackBerry smartphone to a computer with a USB port.

Not to worry,
I request you to remove the battery when mobile is turned ON and
wait for few seconds re insert the battery then check If problem still exsists you need to take a back up of your hands set and re-install the operating system of your Blackberry.

To perform a clean installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps:-
1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
2) Click Help.
3) Select About Desktop Manager.
4) Click the Device Software tab.
5) Verify that the BlackBerry Device Software displayed is the latest version currently available from the wireless service provider.

My blackberry powers on but keeps loading


You'll need to do an OS reload on the phone. You'll need blackberry desktop manager, and your data cable. You can download blackberry desktop manager from www.blackberry.com if you don't have your CD for the phone. Once it's installed, you'll have to download the device software. Either from your carrier, or from blackberry.com For VerizonWireless you can download device software at www.vzam.net/blackberry once the device software is also installed, since your phone isn't showing the app error reset screen, you'll be able to do a software update (plug the phone in after the install, blackberry desktop manager will prompt you for the update.) Once updated, your phone should work fine. :)

Device error 400


You can download desktop manager for free from Blackberry.com web site.

If you are able to get this to work, good luck, because I am unable to get the desktop manager to find the blackberry, nor is the USB port reading what the device is.

But you can give the desktop manager a try,and also download the software for your blackberry. I'd suggest you download the 4.3 version of the software and be sure it is in the language that you speak (they have several, look for ENG for english)
