Re: blackberry torch completely dead

Hi ryleesdaddy,


Welcome to the Support Community!

If possible, I would suggest testing with another battery to rule out any issues with the battery itself. If you are unable to try this, I would recommend testing with different charging cables and charging sources first, to see if the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphone will charge and power on. If this makes no change, you may want to try to reload the BlackBerry® Device Software by forcing a connection with the BlackBerry® Desktop Software. One of the following KB articles should help you do this.

If you are using a Windows® computer: http://bbry.lv/L13o3O
If you are using a Mac: http://bbry.lv/NtreH7

Please note that this process will remove all data from your BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphone. If you have a backup file that was taken previous to this issue occurring, you should be able to restore some information from that file.


Hope this helps.
