Amen to your comments!! I have pretty much the same problem. I own two BB 8100 pearls; one shows the charging light and the other doesn't and hasn't from day 1 (I bought it used).
I am thinking that it is a feature buried in the OS which we can't get at directly but which we can screw up by installing certain apps.
Am researching further and will post here if I find the answer.
