Bold 9000 dead?

Plugging in the charger in the Bold 9000 makes the red light in the upper right-hand corner come on for a second or two. Then nothing.


No charge even when leaving the charger on all night. I have tried this with two different BB batteries.


Connecting the Bold 9000 to a PC (with the proper USB-driver installed) also makes the red BB light stay on for a second or two.




JavaLoader -u -p<pin> -w<password>  wipe


on the PC gives


"HResult error during Open: 80040154   Error: Unable to open port".


Are there any points on the BB system board or other of its parts that can be checked with a volt meter to verify that the Bold 9000 is in fact dead and/or beyond repair?
