Blackberry Bold Charging Problem in Power Station

My Blackberry 9000 does not charge when connected to a power station.   When I seat it in the power station, the display changes to the clock.   When I manually check the display and I see the battery indicator showing that it is charging.  But when I leave it overnight, the unit does not charge.

 

I have a second Blackberry Bold and a second power station and I cannot get any combination to work.  Both bolds will charge in a charging pod so I know the contacts on the Bold are working and the power outlet is also working. 

 

Please help.

Re: Blackberry Bold Charging Problem in Power Station

Probably your devices battery is causing the issue. Change the battery of your  BOLD to the another one and observe the behavior.

Re: Blackberry Bold Charging Problem in Power Station

Why then will the same battery charge normally in battery compartment of the charging station and also when using a charging pod?  It also charges normally when the adapter is connected directly to the Bold.

Re: Blackberry Bold Charging Problem in Power Station

This problem turned out to have a simple solution. 

 

I needed to use a volt meter to diagnose the problem.  The connection between the cradle and the stand on the power station was open and read a potential difference of 0 Volts DC.  I had to reseat the cradle several times until my volt meter read a potential difference of 5 volts. 

 

When a 5 Volt difference was observed, the charger worked normally.
