Re: Phone wont turn on

Have you rebooted it?

Remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot.

Re: Phone wont turn on

Is your LED right flashing red?



Ususally if resetting it doesn't work you'll have to reload the OS onto your device.


First download and install the Desktop Manager from here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22


Next download the handheld software from here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp


Afterwards try reloading the OS in one of 2 ways:
