    Update, not much luck
    I tried the BlackBerry uploader mentioned earlier. Was able to have the PC notice the phone and it began to load the OS, getting a solid green light too. However it never finished & flashed this error message. I tried following the suggestions on the error, using different USB plugs but still same.
    Has my My Z10 died for good?-photo-1-.jpg

    With the leaked uploader it started, went to writing and then back to exe file. Green light at beginning and then back to red. Version
    Now all I have is a double flash red led, every 3 seconds. Phone still not functioning

    That's not an auto loader that you used! Get an autoloader link from the forums. And they are made to run on windows 7 or 8 they won't run on xp

    It's done. Same thing happened to my sister's Z10. Warranty long gone.

    I opened it up to see if I could spot anything and I found what appears to be a corroded/leaked CMOS battery. When I tried to pry it off in hopes of replacing it, the board contacts came off (battery is soldered to them).

    Haven't had much time to go back to it to try any other hacks,.. but there doesn't seem to be much anyone can do other than get a replacement.

    CMOS battery?! Uh, there's a secondary battery in the Z10 that's soldered in?

    Oh oh..... that makes these things time bombs if true...
