    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 blackberry z10 wont turn but red light flashes

I'm not an expert on phones, but it sounds to me like that is the low battery light that is flashing, so I must ask, have you charged it recently? if not, try that and then after a few hours try turning it back on.
I hate to sound stupid, but a lot of phones will flash a red light if the battery is too low for it to turn on. so it is worth mentioning.

Hi i have an experia ant the littli led light on the top stays on red all the time


The little red light means your battery requires charging.

Plug in the charger and allow it to charge.
It should change colour to orange when it has over 15% charge in it and then turns green when it is 90% charged.

If it still stays red dispite being fully charged. Try removing the battery for a few seconds and then replace it again.

I hope this helps.
If your phone is fully charged and it still has a red light, then take it back to the shop you acquired it and get a replacement.
It means you have a hardware fault.

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.

MY BLACKBERRY BOLD 9000 WON'T TURN ON!!! My friend gave me her Blackberry Bold 9000. It's battery was replaced a few months ago but it hasn't been used since then. When I plug it into the wall charger,...

Ok...don't panic. The charger you are using is not compatible. Verizon only works with verizon blackberry's. Non verizon will not work with blackberry and vice versa. This is what will happen. you plug it in and it will boot for a few seconds and then the lightning bolt you see is the charge icon and then a red line in it means that charger is not compatable. Blackberry does make its own charger but there is a "pin" on the plug in that will tell it it is not the right one. Am I confusing you?

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.

I just called Verizon Wireless who said that the phone may need to be charged completely for a few hours. Try taking the battery out and putting it back on as well.
