BB Bold :: 9900 Red Light Flashing / Black Screen - Software Failure In ROM
Sep 12, 2011
Unfortunately my BB9900 past away. Black screen, Red light flashy and all the same symptoms in previous other posts. I have tried:
- Batt pull
- Chargin with Power cable and/or USB cable and pull the batt in / out
- Installing software
- Resetting with BBSAK and JL CMDer
All without any result. Only thing is: When I pull the battery and connect it with my PC, after 30s/60s I see a battery (with a red cross) in the screen. I have tried now to install the software trough "c:program filescommon files esearch in motionapploaderloader.exe" /nojvm but no luck. Is it possible to connect with other software? Where can we download software to Flash the Rom and are their any ROMS available? My guess is a software failure in the ROM.
i have only had my blackberry for a few months, i tried installing an update last night and it said it needed to reboot, i clicked ok and now i have a black screen with a red flashing light, i have put the phone on charge, it won't turn on or connect to the computor
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
When I'm trying to power on the phone, I get the initial black and white "Samsung Galaxy S6" screen. Then everything goes black and the blue LED on the top left lights up and stays on, does not flash or dim, just stays on. The phone does not vibrate or make any sound when it does this.
What I've tried to fix it:
1) Power + Volume down (maintenance boot mode) ... I've tried normal boot, factory reset and booting in safe mode, all just give me a black screen with the blue LED.
2) Power + Volume Up + Home (andoid system recovery screen) ... When doing this, the phone displays the black and white "Samsung Galaxy S6" screen, followed by a bluish colored screen with a little android guy on it, followed by the dead android guy with a yellow exclamation triangle over his head, then goes into the android system recovery menu. On this screen I can wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition and reboot and I still get a black screen with a steady blue LED.
3) Power + Volume Down + Home followed by Volume Up (Downloading screen) ... Takes me to the bluish screen warning me about downloading a custom OS. After hitting up it does not show the knox has ever been triggered. I've tried using ODIN 3.10.6 to reinstall fresh firmware (5.1.1 G920VVRU3BOG5) and after it successfully installs it, it boots to a black screen with the steady blue LED.
I have a Rogers Bold 9900 that wouldn't turn on this morning after charging last night. Instead I have a slow flashing red indicator light.I tried to connect it to my Blackberry Desktop Software but it wouldn't see it (kept saying it couldn't connect).I understand this is a common problem with the 9900 and that exchange the phone is the only solution. Typically I would go back to Rogers and try to exchange the phone but I bought the phone outright and can't find the receipt anywhere.SInce this model is less than a year old (so my phone can't be out of warranty is there another way to exchange it without my original receipt?I came back to BB from Android and actually quite liked my Bold (especially in tandem with my Playbook) but now I find myself back on an old Android phone because my Bold is dead.
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 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.
So I bought a blackberry 9900 on kijiji from someone. It was working fine, until one day the screen started flickering, and then just went all black... now it still turns on, everything turns on, and yet the screen does not... it remains black for the longest time till whenever it decides to show up itself. Please help me fix this? I was told it may be a software problem, but I don't think so as I have updated it to the latest OS version and its still giving me trouble.
my bb9900 is not very old (DOP- 26/11/2011) and i handle it very carefully. but few days back its screen went black, suddenly, for few mins and then again it became normal. since then it happens daily and atleast for a few times everyday.
whilst i am using the phone, suddenly the screen goes black, but i cant still see the screen is on. i can carry on using the phone by making a call, so i assume the phone still works normally. i have to wait a long time for my phone to be back to normal. i leave it for about 15 minutes, and it starts working but this happens again. this also happens when i make a call and the screen goes dark,and also when i lock it?BB BOLD 990, OS 7.1?
I opened a Blackberry 9900 contract about 5 days ago and I am having problems already! When I make a call the screen goes to black and doesn't turn back on until I end the call. I've tried deleting installed apps taking battery out. Its fully updated.
My bold 9900 has recently started to go dark right after use. Sometimes it goes dark and still rings but I cannot see the caller ID but can answer and speak. At times the screen turns back on after two minutes, other times I have to do a battery pull. This has only started after I installed the official Bell Mobility OS 220.127.116.117 update a few days ago.
Recently after updating my bb bold 9900 to os 7.1, my device would start to give blank black screens even though the phone is on and supposedly working, since the keyboards would light up. At first it didn't do this, however, it has been around 10 days since it started blanking out. It would take around 15 minutes or more before I can see the normal screen again. I thought it was just a normal "blackout" since some time it tends to do that, but it turned out it wasn't. Sometimes when I use it, it would also blank out, which is annoying especially when I'm using the messenger/texting..
I'm using the bold 9900 and I got it just over a month ago. Four days ago I noticed a thin black line flickering across the screen and I thought It would go away because the phone didn't drop. This morning, it became two thin black lines.I have no clue how it came about or how to fix it and its really distracting. I updated my OS to the latest one and I also updated my BBM to the 6.1 beta. The phone didn't drop, the line just came out of nowhere.
ive had this issue before and sent it away to be fixed came back and was fine for a couple of months and now the problem is back tried doing a battery pull and everything loads it seams. i have tried using the desktop manager and it successfully loads the updated opperating system but same problem persist. the screen is just black and the blacklight lights up but i dont even see the loading bar when i put the battery back in.
I bought my 9900 in June, and I have encountered lots of problems and downsides.1-Really short battery life, drains too quickly2-Bad speaker performance in open areas3-Horrid app performance4-Horrid selection of apps5-Constant freezing and loading times, regularly having to unplug batteryAnd now the most severe thing ever happened:I didn't drop my phone, but a week or two ago a straight horizontal line of blue pixels appeared. I was curious, and I took a screenshot. The blue line wasn't visible. One or two days later the space between the line(It went from one side to the other side) and the bottom of the screen started to flicker, and sometimes completely went black. The black area was a third of my screen, and it is really hard to use with this black space on my screen. It eventually became always pitch-black, and now it rarely flickers.
So I bought my AT&T Bold 9700 last month when it first came out, and have had no troubles with it so far. I've tried searching for a thread like this but haven't found any.My 9700 just randomly "rebooted" this morning, where the screen goes black and the red led light turns on for a couple of seconds. This has happened to me before on my old 9000, where after it would then start up again. Nearing the time when I replaced it, it would do it quite frequently (and to think it just started getting really bad AFTER the 1 year warranty on it expired!). So back to the 9700, the progress bar that comes up when you're starting up the device would then come up, and sometimes load for about half an inch, sometimes only up to an eighth, before the whole thing would start again - the screen would turn black, the red led turns on, and the progress bar would come up again.I pulling the battery out for a few minutes and putting it back in but its still doing it. I then pulled it out for about an hour and its still doing it again.
I lost my camera! When I try to start the camera I get an error message saying " cannot start the camera. close other applications and try again" Blackberry Bold 9900 OS 7.1 I've tried closing all apps. I wish Blackberry put more operational memory in their devices!
Blackberry Bold erratically stops calls, showing the dreaded "authorization failure" message. Then need to turn off and turn on device. Usually works, but without any apparent pattern, problem returns. Driving me crazy.
