What Will A Diagnostic Test Tell Me About My BlackBerry?
The diagnostic test will determine whether or not the hardware in your BlackBerry (or the used one you’re considering purchasing) is in passing condition. Of the functions tested will be the keyboard, trackball, light sensor, backlight, LED, LCD backlight and pixels, ring tones, speakers, handheld and headset microphone, bluetooth functions and GPS antenna to name a few.
When the diagnostic test has been completed, a full report of all of the hardware tested and of their pass or fail status will be generated and stored on the BlackBerry. Even if your BlackBerry receives a passing grade on everything, it’s helpful to perform this diagnostic test from time to time so that, in the future if anything ever does malfunction with your hardware, stored reports will help you determine the timeframe in which the malfunction occurred. For instance, if all of your hardware past a diagnostic test on September 12, but then your keyboard hardware failed on November 18, clearly you’ll know the approximate time of when the trouble began and may even be able to retrace your steps and recall any situations that may have contributed to the damaged software.
Though the BlackBerry hardware is typically very durable, it’s nice to know that there is a diagnostic tool available to help you regularly assess the condition of your hardware.
