    I have BB Z30 and it is almost 15 months old too. I bought it from Dubai and living in India.

    Two days back, suddenly its screen gone black and nothing is display. Some time, just Red light blink only.

    I have tried below methods, but not working yet.
    1. Power + VOL+/-, but no hard reset
    2. BB Link - Factory reset and reload software
    3. Autoloader- it is completed but same condition

    Please help me to bring it back.

    yes your out of warranty so it will cost you to get it fixed, you can try to do it yourself but you would have to search to find out how to do it.

    When you hook it up to link does it tell you the setup needs to be completed?

    Once it was connected to Link than I reloaded software.

    Now even link is not identifying it.

    Did you connect it via HDMI to a monitor? at least you can see if it is the screen that is dead or the whole phone.

    Hook it to link and reload the OS. Yes link won't reconize it but you can still reload the OS. I have brought back 2 Z30s back from dead.

    I had a similar problem recently. Instead of a black screen, I just had an error message with a red light. I tried loading the software via BlackBerry Link multiple times but always ended up with an error message.

    If I remember correctly, I used Sachesi to reload the software
