Storm 2 9520 wont turn on.



I just registerd on the forum because I have issues with my BB Storm 2 (9520).

The problem is that it won't turn on. When I start to charge it the red light just switches on for about 6 secondes and then switches off for about 6 seconds and then back on.

This keeps happening, and the screen just stays black. When I pull the battery and connect it to the charger I get a battery with a red cross on the screen signalling that it is missing the battery.

When I try to to connect it to my PC it just connects and reconnects constantly.

With the Desktop Software from BlackBerry I can recognize it but when I try to repair the phone it gets stuck on "Reconnecting to JVM".


Please help me out, I use my phone alot for work and school related stuff...

Hello Wesseling181, 


Welcome to the forums. 


Try starting a software reload without the battery inserted to force detection. Have a look at the below article for instructions on how to do this.
