My blackberry has been dead for a few months, I've tried all these ways of getting it to boot and nothing works. I've tried the stack charging but holding my power light does not get it to blink. It just goes red then off, then the lightning bolt screen, then a green light and the boot screen comes on and the light goes off but the boot screen stays on....for days!!!. Im trying with a rapid charger but have tried with the wall charger too.
Im at a loss and no one will answer any of my posts... I have had it for a couple of years so no more warranty..will someone help please

ok leave it plugged in... I did that for 6 days turned on because from what Im hearing it only charges that way.. I also left it plugged in and turned off for 24 hours because that was also suggested to me.... nothing happened either way

I have tried everything this website has said, rebooting the router I can't see helping because I wasn't able to get the pb on, that has nothing to do with getting online
I was able to resolve the issue by myself by plugging the pb into the PC and my rapid charger at the same time, I uninstalled and reinstalled the desktop software and was successfully able to install the new OS and my blackberry is now charging after several months... so in my opinion holding a bunch of different buttons for 10 20 or 30 seconds is just a luck of the draw for some people.. just as Im sure that what resolved my issue won't resolve everyone elses
