Hi rickwaugh,


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.
Can you tell me if any changes were made to the BlackBerry smartphone before this happened? Was it security wiped when it was returned to you or were any error messages received?
If not, I suggest first trying to charge the battery using another charging cable or charging source to see if that resolves the issue? If that doesn't help, are you able to try testing with another battery to see if you are able to start the BlackBerry smartphone?


I look forward to your response.
