    I have a bb pearl 8230 flip and when I plugged the charger in yesterday in the mid afternoon and the screen went black and the red LED light came on as if it was trying to reboot, but after a minute or two it went off and the screen remained black.
    From time to time the LED comes back on like its still trying to reboot but I never get anything but a blank screen.
    I searched all over the internet and found out it may be nuked.
    So I followed the process on here on how to fix a nuked BB and everything went well until the initialization step.
    Once it gets to that step, it keeps telling me that it couldn't connect to my device and gives me the option to retry or cancel. I retried several times and changed USB ports and started the process over and did it with the battery out and still nothing.
    I have no way to get a phone till August and trying it on a different computer isn't an option.
    Any help or advice that doesn't include me giving up would be greatly apprciated, thanks guys.
    Oh and I just remembered, I also tried Jl Cmder and that didn't work either.

    If a battery in a Blackberry phone runs down to the point that the phone shuts down from a lack of power several things happen.
    The phone is trying to start, the battery doesn't have enough power to start the phone, and the phone might be trying to find a data connection through the micro USB while you are trying to charge it. All this causes the phone and battery to work against itself in a loop, in the end if the phone doesn't find a charged battery to start with, it will go on like this forever.

    The battery you have in it is probably damaged, it will run hot, and will never take a full charge again so you will need to replace it.

    There is a new post in this section (Pearl Flip) by Schmoozer called "Infinite Restart Loop Solution" you might want to give that a look and see if it works for you.
