Blackberry Bold 9000 old charging issue

i know this issue has been talked about a lot, but im not really sure that ive found what i'm looking for. i have an old bold and the battery is completely drained, i put it on charge around 2 days ago. this process keeps happening:

1. plug in and LED goes red

2. if i attempt to turn it on, the LED remains red and then a white screen with battery and blue lightning bold comes up

3. after a few minutes, this switches off along with the LED light and is completely unresponsive


im not really sure what to do, i dont have a USB connector, only a wall charger and id really like to get it up and working if possible

if anyone has a solution, please help?

much appreciated

Try bying a new battery. Or even better, go to the shop and ask to try the new battery before buying it, so you can can know if the phone works or not! I think they will understand that you don't wanna buy stuff to a broken mobile... Cheers

Well, I agree with what habbitzz says.. ask the phone shop to try a battery before you buy.. that's the easiest way ever to find out Smiley Happy
