    My z10 which was all fine started behaving strange once i restarted the phone following a calendar error (calendar icon was missing on the home screen and also noted missing sms and tweets).
    All I could see was the black background and the blackberry text logo for some minutes (not the squircle logo). After restarts, tried a quick battery pull but still the same logo.
    Did this for a second time to same result so decided to reload OS using Link.
    Link recognized the fone initially and prompted to power off phone. But am not able to switch on the phone and no other signs of 'life'. Also I was not getting the red light when I inserted the battery.
    Am looking for help:
    1) How to switch on z10?
    2) Is there a method without using link (autoloaders etc) which could help ?
    I dont have warranty as the phone was a gift so am willing to try any idea to get it up and running . Please can someone help me Thanks

    Thanks BigBadWulf..
    To try this, sachesi and sachbar require the device to be in usb mode. My device is not switching on as I had mentioned earlier . Also, I was using 10.1.4181 after I had issues earlier this month installing 10.2 official (bugs and all).
    Is there any way to get sachbar working in this condition?

    Just use the autoloader. It requires the phone be off, which should be easy for you.

    hi...little luck with bootloader...it just says 'Connecting to bootrom' and nothing happens ;(
    I had used a beta loader from bb website for my type (z10-stl 100- as getting the bootloader you had suggested was tough (dl from mega is getting disconnected)
    Just thought if I could get the fone to show some signs of life, I could reload default OS...how can I proceed? thnks

    Just a quick suggestion. This worked for me once. Try connecting to link without the battery and see if green light comes on then once the process starts reinsert the battery. I'm just a novice here but never shy to try different methods.

    I have the same problem with my phone as it is only showing the blackberry text logo...... I have tried everything and nothing seems to work. Most of them get stuck at uploading boot ram image

    I had this happen on my z10 and fixed it by using the Internet Explorer route to fix a bricked phone. Sorry don't have the link right now. Just do a Google search for repair a bricked BlackBerry using Internet Explorer. Worked like a champ. Another work around is to install one of the LEAKS as they have a force auto loader. I suggest as it direct loads Android apk files. You will love that. If you load it and want to go back to carrier version you can then use Link to reinstall the carriers version. Good luck..
