    BlackBerry device does not turn on and the LED flashes

    BlackBerry device does not turn on and the LED flashes

    Doc ID : KB04596
    Last Modified : 2006-11-15
    Document Type : Support


    Environment
    • BlackBerry® device
    Problem

    The BlackBerry device does not turn on, and the BlackBerry device light-emitting diode (LED) flashes twice and pauses, flashes twice and pauses, and so on.

    The repeating pattern can also be described in the following ways:
    • flash flash pause pause

    where flash means the LED is on andpause means the LED is off.
    • 1100

    where 1 means the LED is on and0 means the LED is off.
    This behavior indicates that no applications are installed on the BlackBerry device.

    Cause

    BlackBerry Application Loader removed existing application programs from the BlackBerry device, but failed to install new applications.

    Resolution

    Complete the following steps:
    1. Verify that BlackBerry Device Software is added to the computer. For instructions, see KB03295.
    2. If the BlackBerry device is connected to a laptop computer using a docking station, disconnect the docking station from the laptop computer and connect the BlackBerry device directly to the laptop computer.
    3. If a third-party program (such as a virus scanner) uses the same communications (COM) port as the BlackBerry Desktop Software, close the third-party application.
    4. If you use a universal serial bus (USB) adapter to connect the BlackBerry device to a serial port, temporarily connect the device to a USB port.
    5. In the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, double-click Application Loader.
    6. Follow the application loader prompts to install the BlackBerry Device Software.

    Hi,
    Plug the blackberry into your wall charger for a minimum of 24 hours. If the device still will not work after this, you may be up for a new battery.
    Kind Regards,
    Greg Myers

    Ensure you are using Desktop Manager 5.0.1 or above and then connect your device with the battery removed. When Desktop Manager detects the device it should promt you to update and the firmware (please note that this option will not be able to backup your device). During the update process when you see Desktop Manager displaying "Waitomg for the device to initialize" you need to insert the battery.

    Hi,

    I recommend that you nuke the device and do a fresh reload of the firmware. Please note that the “close other applications and try again" error can be caused by firmware or a physical fault with the camera hardware. Let us know if you help with these steps.

    Thanks,

    Gary
