Hello david891 and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.

 

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 smartphone.

 

Remove the battery from your device and connect it to the wall charger. Insert the battery when you are connected to the charger (for at least a few hours) and check the LED.

 

Does the red LED remain solid? Does it blink? Does it not light up?

 

Thanks!

Re: Blackberry Bold 9900 wont turn on after battery suddenly died

sorry to barge in on this message, i have exactly the same problem, and in reply to this, when i plug it in my red light stays on for about 15 seconds and then goes off...and nothing.
Even plugged into a usb on the computer it does that same, any ideas?

Re: Blackberry Bold 9900 wont turn on after battery suddenly died

I am having a similar problem.  The 9900 seems tohave died, even when I put in a charged battery from another unit.  The red light comes on for 15 seconds at a time every once in a while.

 

My local provider said the unit has failed and that many blackberrys have similarly failed.  Is this correct?
