Re: Restarting after OS update

Correction - it does flash green while charging if it's turned off. It's only while it's on that it doesn't flash.

My Blackberry phone is the same, so I assume this is normal.

I still don't...

Should LED light up when charging?

I just thought I'd post an update for this issue. I was instructed by an Optus shop to "call Blackberry direct" on 1800 039 536.

Despite it being over a year old (maybe 16 months), he said it has...

Re: Restarting after OS update

No, it's WiFi only. I assumed it wouldn't have an IMEI because of that, but the dealer said there must be one. They're still searching their records for the serial number.

Re: Restarting after OS update

Now the dealer wants the IMEI number to check the warranty. It's not on the case, so I assume you can only get it via the OS, which isn't running. Any ideas?

Re: Restarting after OS update

So far today I've done 22 power cycles to try and get some charge into it, and probably did 20 yesterday. When it's got enough charge, will it just boot up?

It's possibly a good sign that if I...

Re: Restarting after OS update

Now I'm trying to follow instructions I've found for getting enough charge into it to let it boot, but they don't match what I'm seeing.

They say things like plug the power in for two minutes, out...

Re: Restarting after OS update

I'm hoping I've found the answer. I just noticed that there was a tiny fragment of very fine wire stuck on the magnetic pins of the rapid charging socket. It was shorting out the middle pin (non...

Re: Restarting after OS update

Is this likely to help? That tool is for downgrading for jail breaking, and I'm uncomfortable with the whole process. I'm not convinced that it's the OS upgrade that killed it, given the previous...

Re: Restarting after OS update

Don't think so - it was purchased last August. I'm making inquiries about it now.

Re: Restarting after OS update

Yes, several times. I'm waiting at least until Desktop Manager has given up waiting for the reboot.

I'm beginning to wonder if there's something wrong with the charger, and that all I'm achieving...

Re: Restarting after OS update

Maybe, but I doubt it was going to ever finish rebooting. How long could it possibly take? After it had gone black after displaying "Blackberry Playbook" and the changing colours, I saw no sign of...

Re: Restarting after OS update

Could someone please confirm if I'm now seeing the symptoms of a flat battery? I.e. power on, see "Blackberry Playbook" on the screen for a while, then it goes black.

Now Desktop Manager is saying "The desktop loader is unable to connect to The device. You may need to enter the password on the device."

I doubt it's flat, but I'll leave it on charge over the...

Restarting after OS update

I just installed the latest OS (2.1.?) on my Playbook via WiFi. It said it had finished and that it had to restart. I clicked the restart button.

It took a while to do anything, but after a few...
