Re: blackberry curve 9320 batt too low for radio use

No I don't have a replacement battery.sometimes as well the ringtone will change and if I go into the media part it will say there are no songs but if I pull the battery it will all come back on again.I have to also use an old charger,if I use the charger that came with the fone it says there's not enough power to charge it

Re: blackberry curve 9320 batt too low for radio use

Do this,
Leave the device to charge for a couple of hours, and then, still connected to the charging cable, remove the the battery from the device a few seconds and reinsert it. Do this a couple of times over the next few days.

 

What it sounds like is that your on-device battery monitor is off-sync with the actual battery charge. Doing this above will normally get them back in sync.

 

Here are some good charging tips, please read and you'll see that many of them will apply to you.

Re: blackberry curve 9320 batt too low for radio use

My phone is doing the exact same thing, it has half a battery and says battery too low for radio use, so I take the battery out and put it back in and when it comes back on my battery life says it's almost out of charge:/

Re: blackberry curve 9320 batt too low for radio use

Hello guys,
I found the solution! I have 2 9320 and both developed this problem after 5 or 6 months. Battery too low for radio use even if nearly fully charged. I tried everything what described here- battery pulls, soft reload, deleting apps, pulling battery out with charger connected- nothing worked- just dont waste more time. The solution is easy and its not software problem! Just open your phone- if you dont know how check on youtube so you don't damage your phone and simply clean battery connector in a place where it is touching the mainboard. My bb board was black in that place- came off easily and connectors on mainbord looked like new after. I used zippo lighter fluid and clean cloth. Since then no problem on both my blackberries- never switched radio off again with battery not beeing red. I think there was not enoug power flow through this connector causing me going crazy. Now my blackberries are amaizing again! Hope it helps!
