BB Storm 9500 :: 9530 VZW - Screen Is Black

Jan 27, 2010

I have a Storm 9530 (Verizon), My screen went black today, I can't see anything to do anything. I tried to do a backup to my PC but it kept disconnecting, then connecting. So then I tried to update it, and it did the same thing, the update got part of the way through and stopped because it was waiting for me to "initiaize device", so I just started tapping the screen hoping something would happen (can't see anyhting rememeber) nothing did! I have taken the battery out too many times to count today, trying to figure this out. I even took it out and left it out for over an hour. Any ideas on how I can get my phone back?

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Storm 9530 - Screen Suddenly Unresponsive

Sep 12, 2010

I wish there was an easy way for me to portray the amount of disdain I have for my Storm at this time, however, that won't do me any good!I'm just looking to get some insight to my problem and whether or not it can be resolved! It would be really unfortunate if I had to replace my lump of a phone as I am a college student that just moved away from home and am in the middle of my two-year contract.My phone is still in operating order minus the faulty touchscreen, it still receives messages, emails, and even phone calls. All the side buttons work, in short, the screen is just dead.I did not drop it nor spill any liquids on it and I've performed a plethora of battery pulls. I'm at a loss!Let me describe the events that occurred before (seemingly) death of my touchscreen. I was at a friends house preparing for a 9/11 5k race when I noticed my battery was running low so I left it in a safe place to quietly run out of steam because I had no need to carry a phone during a race. At this point it was still fully functional. After the race, I check my phone to see if it was out of power yet which it was. I get home later that night and charge it only to rudely surprised by an inoperable screen. I cleaned the screen and did a few battery pulls afterwards in hopes it was only a minor problem to no avail.

A little hardware information that may be of use:

Verizon Carrier

OS .328

I was also in a moderate car crash the day prior so perhaps that may have caused some problems? Externally, my phone is in mint condition. I suppose this just hasn't been my week!

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Storm White Screen Of Death?

Feb 26, 2010

I have had my Storm since it came out. I take great care of it, only update with official revs of the BB OS. I only have a few applications. I turned it on a few days ago and got a white screen that had a JVM error 102. Called VZ tech support and they told me I had a corrupt file in the OS and asked me to unistall and reinstall. I have done this 5 times and still I have a white screen that has reset on it. Even doing a cold boot, nothing changes.

Jul 31, 2010

I'm having problem with my storm phone ever since it was dropped in water. I left it to dry for a week. Since then I replaced my battery and the phone came on with the clock and then the screen showed up. and could not do anything. Then the screen went black. Now when I try to recharge it only a green light appears and nothing else. Did I kill my battery and is the phone no longer good or it's just my screen and i can replace it.

Jul 3, 2010

I took my first blackberry storm 9539 as a gift recently. I have no previous experience with blackberry phones and the first thing i noticed as soon as i tried to test the phone is that every time i tap on the screen to make a selection the whole screen is mooving. It seems like the screen is not fixed very well on the phone body. Is it normal or the phone i got is defective.

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Dust - Cases And Screen Protectors

Jan 27, 2010

Took my storm1 into a corporate store to get my phone replaced for dust in the screen. Rep looks at my phone and says "well, thats why we try to sell you phone cases and screen protectors...we will NOT replace this for this reason." I asked her where in the manufacturers warranty it states my phone requires any protective devices. I didn't even want to argue the obvious point that a screen protector or a case wont prevent this. She just took it back and blew a can of air around the perimeter of the screen and said "sorry, but thats all I can do for you.

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Voice Dialing And Dust Under Screen

Mar 5, 2010

I have a 4 day old BlackBerry Storm 9530 and so far I love it. But I have an issue with the voice dialing and am wondering if anyone else has had this issue or if there is a fix.

When I activate voice commands everything works from the bluetooth, but about 50% of the time when I use voice commands to call someone, I will get to the point where the phone and I confirm the selection(name) to call and it will say(and show on the BlackBerry screen) for example: "Susan Home Calling..." And the blackberry will stay on that screen, not connecting to anyone if I press any key it will bring me right back to the "home" screen on the BB, no making any calls.

Also, I am noticing some dust specs under the top left corner of my touchscreen, I know its underneath the screen because I can tell, and I am very OCD about wiping off my screen and keeping my phone immaculately clean..

I am somewhat saddened by the fact that such a well known and highly respected device doesn't in fact have an 'airtight' screen, and lets dust underneath, especially after only four days, in a clean house and never even in a pocket..

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Disabling Music Fade-in On Phone OS 5.0?

Mar 2, 2010

I have a Verizon Storm 9530, running OS I just upgraded yesterday from 4.7-something. I avoid upgrading ANYTHING because of BS like this- read on...I'm 90% thrilled with the fixes/upgrades/"features" of 5.0. I can finally type in a webpage text field without the browser crapping itself, or use the copy/paste function without performing delicate surgery, or browse music playlists without going berzerk from the horrendous, unusable interface.

However, there were two "gotchas" that really make me consider switching back to 4.7. First is the Auto-dim "feature". It's very annoying, and broken... but tolerable. And covered in about a dozen other threads. So I won't beat that horse here.

My beef is with listening to music. I use my phone to listen to Pandora about 7-8 hours a day. Occasionally I listen to my own MP3's. I noticed right away that after upgrading to 5.0 and the latest version of Pandora ( -> that my audio tracks faded in at the beginning. I thought it was some stupid feature introduced into Pandora.

On my way home from work this evening, I noticed it did the same thing with my personal MP3's. All of my songs had a similar, disgusting fade-in that lasted about 1 second. It wasn't even a 'smooth' fade-in, either!URL...(Sorry, can't link with <10 post count)
This thread describes EXACTLY what I'm experiencing on my Storm. I've only attempted to listen to music through the headphone jack. I'm using standard, off-the-shelf headphones, along with my cassette adapter in my car- all of them do this. With the built-in speakers, it works fine.

I'm a bit of an audiophile/perfectionist. I've had several other audio devices (MP3 player, Ipod, MD player, CD player), some of which have had options to enable or disable this so-called feature. I've looked everywhere I can think of (trust me, I've been searching these forums all day!) but my Storm has no such option.

I had NO issues with this before OS 5.0, and it's driving me CRAZY. My wife says it's "not such a big deal" but when you're ROCKING OUT in the car, and your favorite song's formerly powerful intro sounds like puke, IT IS a big deal!

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Snapping Pictures / Phone Just Locked Up

Jan 11, 2010

I've had my 9530 since about September. Today I was snapping a few pics, and the phone just locked up. Did a battery reset, and now it won't do anything! Keeps going from the black screen to a white screen with the little spinning clock and back? WHat happened?! I don't have insurance on the phone, but I don't think its an "insurance" issue as I didn't do anything. Is it still under warranty since I've only had it since Sept?
