Re: Red X Shown On Battery

 

Ladies & Genitalmen Smiley Tongue 

 


If you see a X (Red Cross) on your Blackberry Screen while charging it. It means that your Battery is not Genuine OEM. 

It must be a Chinese aftermarket Battery.

 

Now there is a solution for everything. 

 

There are 2 ways :

 

Way1:

 

Things you need

1. Another Blackberry's battery (even if it is not of the same model) 

2. 4 needles (without threads)

3. 4 filters from the Cigarette

4. Your Aftermarket Battery

 

Procedure:

Step 1: spear all the 4 needles in the 4 Cigarette Filters at a distance of the battery's 4 terminals. Insert them in such position that 4 battery terminals must touch the needles seperately. 

 

Step2: Now Put your Aftermarket Battery to charge for like 30 minutes (even if it shows the X sign).

 

Step3: Once your charging is done. Put your Aftermarket Battery's terminal on one side of the 4 needles tip.

 

Step4: Put the Other battery you borrowed from your friend on the other side of the needle's tips.

 

Step5: Hold the batteries for like 20 seconds in such positions that their batter terminals must touch the needles and the needles much not interact together at all cost.

 

Result:

 

THERE YOU GO... ITS UNLOCKED..

 

Like this post if you may..

 

Regards,

That's the biggest bunch of malarkey I've ever read.  Perhaps you don't know that EVEN OEM BlackBerry batteries can have the red X on screen. What it means is that your BlackBerry does not recognize a battery source, and specifically it normally points to the "on-device" battery, (not the removable battery) -- the small round battery located ON the motherboard has been drained beyond use.

Re: Red X Shown On Battery

I tried the method colleague fahdzk, Not unlocked battery.

Tonight I held the phone to the charger in the morning (not 30 minutes) and did describe:
Step3: Once your charging is done. Put your Aftermarket Battery's terminal on one side of the four needles tip.
Step4: Put the Other battery you borrowed from your friend on the other side of the needle's tips.
Step5: Hold the batteries for like 20 seconds in such positions that their batter terminals must touch the needles and the needles much

Re: Red X Shown On Battery

hi. im experiencing the same problem with my blackberry curve 8520. first time it happened was two days ago and i tried the tips in this forum (like charging for and removing the battery while plugged in, charging using usb & wall charger, putting a piece of paper, etc.) and my fone started to work again and i thought i got it fixed already.

 

but today i had to restart my phone because i deleted an application and it won't power on again and nothing seems to work. Woman Sad

 

i'm from the philippines and i don't think blackberry has a service center here or customer support. anyone here who has new tips or anything else I can try? is this problem caused by a hardware or software failure? Woman Sad

 

thank you so much in advance for any help you guys can give.

Re: Red X Shown On Battery

 

Are you getting the Red X  over a battery on the BlackBerry screen?

Or what, specifically do you see, any red LED flashing on battery insertion?

Re: Red X Shown On Battery

I do not solve the problem.
Not done with all the methods that have been mentioned here.

Do not use a new battery, although the old one works fine.

This is a problem for BlackBerry, deliberately done this limitation.

The second thing I do not like is, inability to record phone conversations like Symbian, Android.

You issue is very likely based on the built-in reserve battery being completely drained -- that is what routinely causes this 'red X on battery" issue. Thirty minutes of charging will resolve it. Leave it for hours and hours and while still connected to the wall outlet charger, remove the battery and reinsert to see if the device boots up. If not, continue charging and repeat.

Re: Red X Shown On Battery

Colleague, I have this procedure done repeatedly.

In my town I visited the service for phones.

After numerous experiments in the service people came to the conclusion that the problem is software on BlackBerry

This is a limitation of what they have done.

Re: Red X Shown On Battery

Capo, it's impossible for me to know what all you've done, tried and didn't have success at performing.

 

if they are certain it is software ON the device, change that software. USE BBSAK to wipe and reload.
