Blackberry 8830 red light no charging sign

Solid red light, I found this in my closet and want to use as a back up phone. The battery has a red strip across in the small sticker .<br>I don't have wall charger just USB. When I plug in to computer with battery or without it just stays solid red . I don't have desktop manager btw. Any suggestions or fixes? Thanks

Hello Bbcris,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.


Sorry to her about the issue you are experiencing with turning on your BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition smartphone.


Please attempt charging the device with an A/C power source as a test.


If the device fails to charge and start please attempt the following software reloading process:




If this process fails to address the issue you will need to contact the original point of sale for options.


Thank you.
