BB Bold :: 9700 Won't Turn On - Red Light Blinking Four Times In Row
May 21, 2012
I've recently got a brandnew blackberry bold 9700, which I've got one day now and it just won't turn on anymore. I rebooted it because I removed an app, and the only thing it does now is blinking the red led light 4 times in a row. I tried almost everything (apploader, jl_cmder, leave batt out for one hour).
I baught my blackberry Bold 9900 this year (March 2012). I've been using it since then but recently it started developing problems like freezing and all. Last night the battery was around 30% (Enough to last couple of hours) the phone just freezed and won't turn on. It keeps flashing red light 3 times every 3 seconds.
Phone turned itself off. Tryed plugging it into a wall charger and laptop usb cable to charge, but each time the red time stay constant for about a minute and then it changes to flashing four times quickly then a short pause and then flashing four times again (and it just repeats this over and over again.)
So my bold 9700 LED light will start flashing for a few seconds and then stop, about every ten minutes or so. I don't have a message or any notification and it drives me crazyyyyy. Does anyone know what I can do to stop this!
I have the blackberry bold 9700 the LED light to alert you of messages etc. Will not stop flashing. I pulled out the battery and that's when the flashing started I thought pulling the battery out again would work but it hasn't stopped it flashes several times stops and flashes again a min later. I checked all apps and messages but cannot find any alerts. Its been over a week but the problem has not corrected itsel

new to blackberry in general. have the bold 9700 and mostly have it on silent so i rely heavily on the red led blinking to signal a missed call. i could have sworn this was always the case cause a vm would generraly acompany the call. the other day the light was green so i thought i was good but in fact i had missed an important call. is this the way it is or is there a setting to have the led blink red with a missed call just like a message.
When I installed my BB Desktop Manager and first plugged in my Bold 9700, it asked if I would like to update various features on my phone, to which I accepted. The update froze- I can't remember quite at which stage but I recall it was at the end stages and the stage at which it froze started with JVM. After waiting an hour or so, I disconnected my Blackberry, not knowing what to do. The screen remained black and the red light started blinking.I looked up fixes for the problem and they seemed simple- one used JL_Cmdr to do a full wipe- but I am using Windows 7 and it isn't compatible. I get a brief command prompt screen for a half second before it closes.
The second fix involved using the command prompt to get to the Loader in the AppLoader file- but I ran into another problem- when trying to open Loader.exe, I got a "The Application Loader requires the Blackberry Device Manager to be installed." Then looking up THAT fix, I downloaded a new OS and redownloaded the Desktop Manager, but am getting the same error.
i need some help here guys, i was charging my 8700 then it came off then the red light appeared, tried to turn it back on and nothin. can sumone plz tell me wats wrong with it, i tried several times and still the red light wont come off and it wont turrn on.
I just bought a blackberry pearl 8100 on the T-mobile network and it was great for about a month, no problems what so ever!one morning I wake up and check out my phone and notice it off and the red LED light is blinking, weird ! and the damn thing won't even turn on!
A friend of me told me something about possibly reflashing the software? is there some way I can restart the thing, I tried removing the battery and letting it restart but still no action...
My BB 8100 wont turn on at all, I tried to do a software update and it said that it failed to update, and not it wont turn on at all. The little red light at the top keep blinking and that is it. How can I get it up and running again, I don't care if I loose all the data on it because I already backed it up.
For some reasons, my bold just stopped blinking when there are missed calls. What appears more weird is that it blinks when it recieves a message.It is not about the bedside thing or the profiles.i checked both of them I am not sure but this thing just starts happening to me after i unlocked my phone.

I have this old 9700 I got from a friend that he says is bricked. I took a look at it and when I put a battery on it, it blinks twice, pause and blinks twice again. It does that and never loads. So I thought, this would be an easy fix. I would just reload the OS and it's good to go. But I was wrong.First thing I did is I went and installed an OS6 (.650) and tried the loader.exe but when I click on Next, it does't recognize a PIN, it says USB-PIN: UNKNOWN. I clicked on next nevertheless and tried to reload the OS but then it won't go past the Loading JVM step which is the second step I guess, being 'Erasing Applications' as the first one. I left it for a couple of hours and it still won't load the OS.Next thing I did is tried to wipe the phone using BBSAK, CrackUtil and JL_Cmder. With the CrackUtil, it says 'Phone not connected' while the JL_Cmder won't let me wipe it. It just keeps on going back to the Menu after I've typed 'blackberry'. The BBSAK won't recognize the phone either.I tried using Desktop Manager as well. It can see that the phone is a 9700 but on the PIN, it says 0.One more thing I noticed, when I put on the battery, the red blinks but when I take off the battery and just plug the USB cord, it won't do anything. My computer will do something (makes a sound and 'recognize' the device in a way) ONLY if I have the battery put on before I put the USB cord on. If it's the USB cord alone, without the battery, it stays dead. Which is weird since in my experience, my computer always recognize BlackBerry devices whether a battery is present or not when you plug the USB cord.Oh and BTW, now my computer doesn't read my phone anymore, whether I put the battery in or not. The phone keeps blinking though, when I have the battery on. Blinks twice, pause and do it all over again.
The red light is keep on blinking ... And I am not able to start the phone ..... When I put my phone charging the red light appears and keep on blinking .... And it blinks when I remove the battery ..... I tooth my battery might be dead so I charge it from external source and put the battery back wide almost full power ....but its not working .
I left my phone charging last night, and when I woke up I just saw the red LED blinking, but it doesn't turn on. THE DISPLAY DOESN'T TURN ON EITHER, so it's not the problem in which the phone reboots over and over. The LED just blinks and then a long blink and then a pause. My computer won't recognize my cellphone. I tried batter pull but it didn't work.
I don't own one but am scouting out the BBB9900. I saw a uTube video and the phone had a red light blinking on top right hand side of phone. Blinking lights bother me on a device I need to work with. When is it blinking, How long, and when does it not.
Does the BBB9900 have an external antenna port so I can boost the reception ?
Similar posts out here and can't find an answer: I have a BB Bold that was working fine today. Since 5:30 ET, it has gone to a black screen. When plugged in, the led light blinks 4 times, pauses, blinks 4 times, pauses, and so on. This blinking pattern has continued for hours. I unplugged and removed thte battery, and then returned the battery to the phone and plugged it in again with no improvement. The phone will not turn on and continues to blink as described. There has been no drop or moisture damage to the unit. Any ideas as to what is going on?
i have may bold 9000 for awhile now but all of a sudden it does not turn on any more. screen blank and the LED light flashing four times. i cannot wipe the phone because i cannot access my bold via the USB port. i'm geting frustrated and i dont know what to do.
I installed QuickPull last night. Now when I plug in my BB to charge the blinking light never stops and turns to solid green even if I turn the BB on and see battery 100% in the status. Is this something that QuickPull does? If I have 100% battery status should I be concerned that the light never turns green?
Let's say i'm texting back and forth with someone, so the threaded SMS screen is open. When I get a new message, it shows up on the screen, my phone does the alert ring/vibrate, and the LED flashes. But, if I don't immediately start typing a reply, or go back to the main list of all messages, the LED continues to flash. I'll even scroll up to the most recent text, but that does nothing.Why does the LED keep blinking when its clear I've read the most recent SMS?!
