My 9700 is only 3 weeks old and now the LED Indicator light does not stop flashing blue.I tried... - Turning off the option "LED Coverage Indicator" - Under "Edit Profiles", I turned off LED for every alert - Under "Manage Connections" I turned on and off Bluetooth (I do not have Bluetooth). I also turn of and on all connections. - I removed the battery with the Blackberry on and then removed the battery after first shutting off the Blackberry Is this a known problem with the 9700? Short of returning it, is there anything else I can do?
My LED indicator won't stop flashing a purpley-blue colour. I have an app which means I can change the colours, but the thing I have set to this colour is texts and I definately don't have a new text. My LED is turned off for Bluetooth and I don't know what else it could be! It's been flashing for over 12 hours now!
Is the red indicator message light supposed to go off automatically? Yesterday, I picked up the phone and there was no red indicator light blinking -- however, when I touched my mouse I realized that there had been an incoming message on my BlackBerry Messenger sitting there for about 3 hours. I did not pick up my BlackBerry sooner because I did not see any red light when I walked into the room during that 3-hour period. What can I do to make sure this red light blinks forever until I finally notice it and review the message?
so my led light keeps flashing even after i open up and reply to a bbm convo, it's happened on my curve 8900, bold 9000 and now my 9700, and it's only with bbm convo's. in order to get rid of the light i have to mark convo as unread then open it and it will go away, im sick of doing this, any insight?
I have a Blackberry Bold 9700, and this problem only just began today. After updating the Blackberry App World software and rebooting the device, the red light began flashing as soon as the phone turned back on even though there were no new notifications, and no updates required. I tried switching a few things on and off, but it had no affect. So I performed a battery pull and it solved the problem...until I received an email on my device, and the light would not turn off after I read the email.
I have the new bold 9700, and I pulled the battery to reset the bb because it wasn't deleting pictures. The pictures were fixed but the LED light that flashes when there's an alert won't stop flashing. It flashes red several times then stops for a minute or two then flashes again. Does anyone know how to fix this so it will stop flashing? I've tried to pull the battery again and even just reset the phone but it won't stop its driving me insane!
Last night while using my bb bold 9700,it just went off,came back on and then my bbm(messenger) was deleted,so i tried updating the OS which turned out to be a failure,unplugging my bb from my laptop minutes later it went off and the red light was blinking twice,charged it all night and symptoms still persist.
I recently upgraded to a bold through Orange (UK Network Provider), phone has been great so far, I have had it for a week. However, I made a call and came back to my phone to find a blank screen and the red light flashing/staying constant intermittently. The phone does not turn on, I have tried taking battery out, sim out, memory card out, attaching it to my computer (which it does not recognize as it needs to be on) charging it etc. I have tried that alt, cap and del reset mechanism too.
Orange told me I will have to send it off this week, but does anyone know any quick fix to turn it on? I have all my contacts on there, stupidly I did not back it up.
After I get a text message or an email, the set ring tone sounds and the light indicator flashes. After I read the message and save or delete it the message light still flashes. Why is this and why won't the light stop flashing? The only way I can get it to stop flashing is take the battery out and put it back in. Verizon is my carrier and it is a Verizon 9650 phone.
The green indicator light in the top right corner will not turn off. It's been on for over a week now, and remains on even when the phone is powered down. I even let the battery drain completely, and it remained on. Also, the other indicator lights, do not seem to be working. My friend recently knocked my phone off of a table, and while I have a case for it, I'm wondering if the two might be related.
I'm purchasing a used Bold for $10. The owner says she did a master reset by pressing ctrl+alt+del. The phone went black and only the red indicator light comes on. Did the battery pull and charged it for hours but still nothing. Next steps? What may have happened?
I got a blackberry 9900 no less than 2 days ago, I havent dropped it or wet it or anything it is in perfect condontion. I left it to charge last night around 11 and woke up at 6 and it will not turn on at all the only thing that happens is the LED light keep flashing red every 30 seconds, i have tried taking out the battery and putting it back, i have also tried leaving it to charge and plugging it into my computer
I bought my blackberry myself last february brand new off of ebay, had no problems until a couple of days ago.I took my battery in and out to use when needed as i was saving the charge, but when i tried to turn the phone on once more, nothing would happen and the phones signal light jus continually flashes red.I've tried taking everything out n reboosting, and ive tried connecting it to the computer but as the screen dont come on i have no way of connecting it.
I have had my 9900 for just over a year after upgrade from a 9000. I loved the phone until two weeks ago I did a upgrade to Blackberry Appworld. Once the upgrade completed it asked for a restart and then the phone became a brick. It would not restart and the red light just flashes. After contacting support and following suggestions to try and make the phone connect to the desktop software without success I took the phone back to Rogers who sent it away to the repair shop. The result... not able to be repaired. Somehow this is now the customers problem because something that no one can identify went wrong with the software upgrade process. No support from Blackberry just what Rogers has to offer which is that I can do an early upgrade to another phone for more money.
Phone worked fine for nearly 2 weeks and now it does not work anymore: when you insert battery the phone want comes on and the red led light keep flashing and screen is black nothing more...
We are trader and buy/sell many black berry models but never faced such situation before with any of the older models of Blackberry.
We have more than 100 customers return of Blackberry 9900 bricked, red light flashing.
Note to Mr. jakoby4204 (Moderator) donât make my massage read only so i could not reply to you again!we were expecting your help rather than blocking our reply to you, also we went to [URL] but got no reply from RIM hence we decided to use this thinking someone has a solution for this because we are sure we are not the only one and maybe..maybe its bring s the attention of RIM and help all its customers
I plugged it into the wall charger last night as I always do, when I got up this morning the time on the clock showed 2.08am even though it was 5.45am, I unplugged the charger and the screen went black. I couldn't turn it on. I removed the battery and put it back in again and still the same, just won't switch on. The LED is flashing 1pause 1,2,3 pause 1, rather than a consistent flashing like when you have a message waiting.I have tried plugging the charger back into it but still nothing, just completely black screen and won't switch on.
Yesterday I was waiting for an important call but needed a shower so I took my phone into the bathroom and put it in a dry safe place where I would hear it ring if need be. It did so I quickly jumped out of the shower, dried hands and answered a message. Few minutes later when back at my desk at home I realized the bold was behaving weird, key presses were not doing the right function, i.e. a press of the back key brought up jk or other letters on the screen etc.
It did not sustain water damage, at worst my hands were merely damp when used so I just figured pop it down for a while and let it 'dry' (it wasn't wet but you know what I mean, its all I could think of) picked it up maybe 15 minutes later and it appeared to have died. Now, its 15 months old (and was a refurbished handset direct from 02 when I got it so its had a hard life) its been bumped, and not long after I got it I broke the screen (LCD bleed) so I had it repaired which forfeited the warranty, also the trackball has been a constant nightmare to me, it stops working in one or more direction regularly.
I've found the solution to this to be to clean the trackball gently with a q-tip dipped in clear alcohol, after some time this usually works, but a couple of months ago I could not get this to work at all so after 2 weeks of a phone that would not scroll left I had the trackball replaced. I now had issues with the trackball not selecting when I push down but this is got around by using the return key or it does sometimes work if you push hard. So, with this new flashing red light failure I took it back to the place that replaced the screen. They kept it for 24 hours and when I went back to collect it they said it was a component failure and beyond economic repair.
Quite truthfully though I got the impression that they actually just couldn't be bothered as it was a hard job. Came home and started researching, other posts I have read lead me to believe that if the LED comes on in any way all is not lost. My computer does not recognize the phone when I try and connect it via USB, although just now I tried again and windows acknowledged that a device had just been plugged in, but the blackberry software still did not detect anything. What can I try now? I am not tech savvy so it will need to be clearly laid out for idiots.
