Re: PHONE WONT TURN ON (BOLD 9900)

I've had a reply to my post and they've advised I take in to a phone tech place to have a look.
The battery wasn't expensive of eBay less than £15 but I think they charge about £20 for diagnostics in shops so may be worth trying that too.
Good luck!

Re: PHONE WONT TURN ON (BOLD 9900)

I'm having the same problem! 

I've tried changing the battery, using another charger, connecting to the computer(and also connecting without a battery). However, nothing worked!  

it's so annoying, I need the data in my phone!

 

Any solutions please?!

Re: PHONE WONT TURN ON (BOLD 9900)

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Please try this sequence...note that, throughout the entire 4h15m process, your BB must remain directly connected to a known-good wall charger (not PC USB, not a cradle):

  1. With the battery inside, connect your BB to the wall charger
  2. Leave it alone for 2 hours, no matter what the LED or the display does
  3. Remove the battery
  4. Wait 15 minutes
  5. Insert the battery
  6. Wait another 2 hours, no matter what the LED or the display does

This has been known to "kick start" some BBs.



It is also possible that your battery or BB has experienced a problem...to test, this sequence is needed:

  1. Obtain an known good and already fully charged additional battery...use it in your BB and see what happens
  2. Obtain access to a known good and identical BB...use your battery in it and see what happens

The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem. Note carefully please that "new" and "know good" are not necessarily the same things. While rare, a "new" battery certainly could be defective. Rather, the simplest (and least costly, btw) method to conduct this test is to find someone with an identical BB who has no issues...trade batteries and see what happens.

Good luck and let us know!
