My 8520 may have picked up a virus.
Screen shows the Blackberry is turning on (i.e. the white rebooting strip), but that stays approximately two thirds of the way and nothing more happens. Pls help. I've taken the battery out several times and even tried a different batter and sim card, with no luck.
I also linked it to the BB desktop software which offers to repair, but nothing more happens.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
There are no verified viruses on BB devices...none.
I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
Failing that, one of these may be of use:
Good luck and let us know!
