Welcome to Fixya. The first thing - try battery pull. When device is on remove the battery, wait a minute and turn the battery back to the device.

If it won't help then wipe the device memory via the following steps:

1. Backup all sensitive data from usb-connected device via BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

2. Wipe the device memory.

3. Restore the data you saved on the step 1.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya

    Do you have thge BB desktop manager on your computer. What i mean to wipe the device memory is to remove everything that is saved specially the clip that you have downloaded. Thats why you need to back it up.

Why does my blackberry 8520 show(app error 532) when its switch on

Hi there.
That error message generally shows up when the is an application that is installed on your phone that has gotten corrupted or isn't compatible with your device. the first suggestion that RIM suggests is to do a reset. This is done by pulling your battery out for afew seconds and putting it back in. If that doesn't help and you can still use your phone try deleting the most recently installed apps and resetting after each uninstall. If you cannot use your phone then you will have to reset it to factory default and reload the software. There are many methods to do this. Some however and easier than others.

Every morning I wake up and look at my blackberry and a white screen has appeared saying " App Error 532 " then " restart " . How do I fix this problem? Thank you .

Hi arisa2005 Listen you have what is known as a application crashes on your bb. 1 arep to fix this is to load the bb desktop manager on your computer if you have not done so already. Next step is to plug your phone into the desktop manager. This is improtant for you to do. must back up the data on your phone ad the application restore wipes out the phoen and then put is all the information back on the phone. If you don't backup your information it will wipe out your entire phone and you have to restore all your contacts. If your are on an enterprise server you will not be able to do this because your company has the phone lock and they will need to do the reset for you. this whole process could take 2 hours . hope this help

I experienced the same problem sometimes last week,and a simple master reset restored my BB back to a normal working condition but unfortunately after trying all the solutions i laid my hands on,but, i was unable to get all my applications back.

It sounds absurd,but the only solution now is to download all your applications again from the blackberry sites,believe me it didn't take much time as i sorry.

Good luck!!!!

Device error 400

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.
