Sienna Kohn: I plugged mine into the computer and the error message did pop up and when
I clicked update, it came up with the "enter email" and then I hit
close..however, the error message popped up again and again...not sure what
I am doing wrong. I was on the phone with tech support for 2.5 hours
regarding a verification with my blackberry ID and then when having the PB
wiped...this is when all hell broke loose...not sure what to do know.They
said to send it in, but I was hoping to fix this on my own.help?
SanrollySoccer: Hi when I update, it charge and then it says that there is not avaiable
updates and the red light change into green, and when I disconnect of the
computer it disappear (the light), What I now?
usman attique: i m repeatedly getting update error messege...i m trying it for last 3 days
alom2042: that was very helpful indeed ...... superb
Mark Whaley: Thanks for this vid. One point that seems to have helped resolve the
problem is to just leave the tablet alone for a long time while charging.
Only after doing this and clicking on the Update OS button in BDM error msg
did things appear to get on track. I'm downloading a new OS now. Hopefully,
I'll be able to run Setup successfully now and get past the "Select Region"
window. Thanks again.
Beg2Live4Life: This stupid playbook has been nothing but trouble. when i got it i had
trouble power it the red light would just flash, then that went away and
then came the wifi issues it would not connect to my wifi network then that
went away and now the screen is giving me problems, the backlight wont turn
on and i can hardly see anything. on top of that after restarting the
playbook it wont turn on which is why im here. that thing is a joke don't
Matthew Moore: what if the desktop software is what caused it?
oldenmccloud10: % £:%%%=% 6%*5÷47*
l34116: my playbook on red light next to 5 yellow lights....What happen???
Beg2Live4Life: Oh trust me the problems are coming your way. Your playbook is gonna slap
you so hard when you have your guard down that you will be lucky if you
still have your pants on when you wake up. On an other note, I just bought
a nexus 7 32gb to replace my dead playbook. It feels like I'm in heaven.
Comparing this thing you guys use to a nexus 7 is not even fair. Enjoy your
playbook. But rmb one day, it's gonna try to losen your pants. Don't drop
kerry jairam: hey my bb playbook isnt event giving me the red light its out blank what do

H2OSecrets: DUDE i have th same problem but it wont update its toooooooooo slow!!!!!!!

SauvySalesGuy: when i plug mine in to my blackberry desktop software (mac) it says try
charging or replacing the blackberry device :S can anyone help?
josh auchincloss: not working, apparently theres no update available
HotNoob: Yea, it's true, i got a galaxy tab 2 10.1" recently, and it's pretty ownage
- other than it failing with 720p play back over the network cause the wifi
is only 100mbps... not smart to cheap out on the wifi... but other than
that it's great :) tons of apps... but then again, it's not fair to compare
the 2 year old playbook to the newer tablets. as per the BB10, it sounds
like there was a lot of money under the table to pump out good reviews this
time. so i'm not surprised that it's failing.
Beg2Live4Life: And WOW JUST WOW now guess what!!!! I just got the black screen of death!
The screen is all black and i hear the screen capture sound when i press
the volume button but the screen is black. Freaken piece of garbage, do not
buy this thing. Let that company go bankrupt.
Evilbones76: Awful, freaking awful bit of hardware. This crap is garbage. I have one that
will not turn, just flashes the red like, does not do a double flash. Just
flashes every second. POS
flightbrothermember: i had the same problem i tried charging it with the usb, that didn't work
so i tried the normal plug socket charger. while the normal charger is
pluged into the blackberry i left for 5 mins and then turned it on and it
