Q5 - Not booting after empty battery

Hey folks,

after my battery drained and the device switched off, I plugged it into the charger and waited for a while. After I tried to switch it back on it simply showed me an empty battery symbol or alternatevely an empty battery symbol with a flash. Also the led light is half green and half red.


I tried multiple charger including the original one from BB and several others.


I googled around for a while but it seems to be a rare issue. Does anyone have suggestions besides giving it to my provider?

Re: Q5 - Not booting after empty battery

Let it charge for a couple of hours and then try turning it on again.
