Re: blackberry bold wont turn on

Another solution is to use a stronger battery charger other than a BB charger.  I used a GPS USB charger and it worked like a charm.

Re: blackberry bold wont turn on

I'm still having the same problem in that I can't get my bb to turn on. The red light is on continually when it's plugged into the electrical charger. I think my problem is that I've forgotten how to turn it on. Is it by pushing the 'end' button? I know this sounds crazy, but I haven't used it in a while.

Re: blackberry bold wont turn on

Hi, I had the same issue.  My BB battery died before I was able to recharge it.  Removing the battery didn't work and charging it did nothing.  I read the information here and realized that I was not using a wall charger.  I was using the USB charger hooked to a wall charging unit.  What I had to do was get the charger with the brick charging wall unit.  I plugged this in, and it charged right up and started about 15 minutes after pluggin it in.

Re: blackberry bold wont turn on

hey,

can you please help me. I think my phones battery got exhausted this morning and when i checked in evening, it just seems dead. i tried to charge it from a wall charger, but no light was blinking. I removed and reinserted the battery and kept it for charging again for about two hours. But now also the red light is not blinking. Can you suggest a solution, please....

can you leave it connected to the wall outlet charger and remove / insert the battery and see what happens?

Still no red LED blinking in any fashion, and no screen activity?
