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.

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.

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.
