Re: My Bold won't charge

I've seen this happen with other BBs as well.

 

Let it charge another hour or so, and with it still plugged to the USB, remove the battery, replace it and see it reboots. If not, leave it longer.

If it does reboot fine, leave it charge to 100% full.

 

Rule #1, never let your battery discharge under 15% constantly, it is not good for these type batteries.

Re: My Bold won't charge

Yeah I have the same problem... my battery was drained and now the Bold has no power @ all.

 

Even if i put my friends fully charged battery... nothing.

 

if i put in the USB cable in with no battery on a normal Bold you still get the red LED... but i have nothing???

 

Can someone please help

Re: My Bold won't charge

What happen if you connect the device with the pc (with the desktop manager closed), the device is detected?

Re: My Bold won't charge

Hi,

 

Yes, the bold is dead.

 

You'll have to contact your carrier to get a replacement organised.

 

And to avoid the next question, yes everything on your BB is gone, unless you have previously done a backup. When you get your replacement devcie you can restore the data from the backup to the handset.

 

If you have never done a backup then unbfortunately there is nothing that can be done to save the data.

 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings. :smileysad:

Re: My Bold won't charge

Have you tried to pull the battery for 24-48 hours.?

I will buy it from you if you want to sell the thing.

Re: My Bold won't charge

I'm having that problem at the moment. I've had it before as well - it took like two days of charging before it worked again but everything was there when it finally turned on again.
