Hi misterrbenny,

 

Welcome to the Support Community!

Are you able to test with another battery if possible? If you have the same issue with another battery or are unable to test with one, please contact your wireless service provider for other options.

 

Thanks.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

It can mean that, but not necessarily...to test, you need to do a couple of things.

 

 




Please try this sequence...note that, throughout the entire 4h15m process, your BB must remain connected to a known-good wall charger (not PC USB):

  1. With the battery inside, connect your BB to the wall charger
  2. Leave it alone for 2 hours, no matter what the LED or the display does
  3. Remove the battery
  4. Wait 15 minutes
  5. Insert the battery
  6. Wait another 2 hours, no matter what the LED or the display does

This has been known to "kick start" some BBs.




It is also possible that your battery or BB has experienced a problem...to test, this sequence is needed:

  1. Obtain a known good and already fully charged additional battery...use it in your BB and see what happens
  2. Obtain access to a known good and identical BB...use your battery in it and see what happens

The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem.

Good luck and let us know!

Re: blackberry curve 8520 red x over battery when booting

Sometimes, a BB won't start up for one reason or another. That process can sometimes get a BB in that condition to start up. In some languages, "kick start" would be an acceptable colloquialism -- perhaps "force start" might work better.

Good luck!

Oh hello again! Given the delay, I thought you'd abandoned this thread, and another poster requested assistance in a similar situation they had. In any event, I do not, from your post, understand your present situation...the tests in post 4 above would apply to your situation as well, if you wish to try them. Then again, if your family member did the second test and the BB was indicated to be the problem, then there may well be no hope of recovery.

 

Good luck!
