    Have you tried to reload the device via the Application Loader? This will probably the fix also too.

There are only 2 options:
- faulty firmware: reload the firmware with App Loader in Blackberry Desktop Manager
- damaged motherboard: then the only thing you can do is to replace the motherboard, but this is usually more expensive than buying another one

My phone is doing the same thing. From what I understand this is a Blackberry issue. It's not the battery or anything else. I just removed the Facebook app from my phone because I also read that it takes up a lot of space.

I've had my Curve for almost a year now and never had any problems. Then the past 3 days it has a low battery by the afternoon. Today it turned off by itself and would not turn back on.

My HTC mobile not going to on after pressing power button and on connection of charger it is showing red LED. Same there here. I woke up this morning and my phones just dead. Even if i connect the charger...

Remove the battery then connect the charger without the battery. Then hold down the power button for a few seconds. The red light may come up for a quick second during this process.

Don't remove the charger. After the red light goes off then insert the battery and check if the light turns amber or orange.

Leave it in orange or amber light state for about 2 minutes. After that, try to turn it on. If it turns on then it is resolved. If not then there is a hardware problem with your phone and it needs to be checked at any HTC Service Center.

A red light indicates not enough power for turn on, the battery is either completely depleted or dead. If the light does not change to amber after a few minutes of charge, the battery needs to be replaced with a new one.

Solution for "blackberry 8110 how to offed the red light"

It is possible that the phone is in a sleep mode. Try to push the top button left and switch it off. Turn it back on after a few seconds.
If it turn on, there's no problem but if it doesn't then something is wrong with your phone's power ic or battery. Try to replace the battery and check if it works.
Please, let me know if it helps or not.

My daughter's phone had the same issue of the red charging light remaining on constantly and the phone not booting up....

I something similar happen to a PSP console too.

If you have a Sandisk or other type of expandable data card in the phone... remove it.

Remove the battery for about a minute and put the batter back in...

The data card is probably corrupt and needs to be reformatted.

I did this and the phone booted with no problems.

Just like my PSP.

Hope this Helps....
