BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 DIED?

Hi there!

My BB 8220 died last night. i tried to reset the phone by taking the battery off and putting it again and nothing. I noticed the phone was dead after some hours of not using it (it had the battery fully loaded) so i did the resetting procedure and after a couple of tries the phone resetted normally. Some minutes later while i was using facebook from the phone the screen went crazy and died. I tried to reset it again and nothing, it seems like the phone tries to start but then it fades to a complete black screen and no life signals.

Any clue?

Thanks!

Re: BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 DIED?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

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

  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 a 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.

Good luck and let us know!

No, actually it didnt work, BUT, the most ODD thing is that 20 days later when i was about to take the phone to a super expensive service, it started working again!, I swear didnt do ANYTHING to it, it just started working... this doesent sound too normal so anyway im planning on taking it to a service so they can check it, but the thing is that is working now
