I'm very sorry to hear that :smileysad: Bad luck mate!!

 

Well try with another battery from other device to see whether your device gets power or not. If that fails then think about a new phone. Again if the device starts working then buy another battery. You'll be one of the luckiest individual!!!

That means there is faulty connections/ or your battery has been drained. In this case, try to remove the batt and clean the pin connectors with solvent before blow dry them. Hope this helps.

Re: Turn phone on and battery sign (cause by dropping phone in water)

I just fixed my T-Mobile BB 8100 with same symtoms.

After trying reload its software with BB Desktop Manager, it said "there is no available software for your phone" and gave me a link to download. Go through that to T-Mobile website, download and execute the BB 8100 soft, reopen the BB Desktop Manager, reload the software and "voilà".

Hope this helps, even one year or 18 months old.

Regards.
