Won't turn on

I have a 8300 and when i went to plug it in for a charge yesterday and as soon as i plugged it in, a battery icon with a red line through it came on the screen. I let it charge overnight and it was the same thing this morning. the phone will not turn on, i have even removed and replaced the battery numerous times and get the same results. Any ideas?

Have you recently installed a 3rd Party application? The fix will be to reinstall the handheld OS.
** Please remember to do a device backup first before attempting the OS reload.

Chances are either the battery is fried. or the OS is nuked.

Take the battery out, plug the phone in and try to turn it on. If it powers on just fine, it's the battery. If not. The OS is nuked and needs to be replaced.

Blackberry curve wont turn on. it died then i took it home and went to charge it and the red light comes on for about 2 seconds then nothing happens and i cant turn it on


Does the phone come on while plugged in? To me it seems that the battery is dead. If you feel the battery is fine then you must visit the BB Service Center.

Blackberry curve 8300 suddently died


Try somebody else's battery, if the problem persists, it's most likely a logic board issue. There are blackberry repair websites that show you how to do the replacement yourself, otherwise here is a service that can repair any Blackberry Bold, Storm, Pearl, Curve, 8800 for screen, lenses,
track balls, usb ports, waterdamage etc.
The website is: Blackberry Repair

My Battery will not charge.


The icon for the battery should change when the charger is plugged in.

If the Icon doesn't change when the charger is plugged in then it is probably the charger.

If the Icon does indicate an external power source but the battery doesn't charge then your battery needs to be replaced

I have a blackberry 8300 and the battery will charge but the phone will not power on. What could be the problem?


when you attempt to turn the phone on does anything happen? when you have the phone plugged into a wall charger does the LED flash red green yellow, or stay a solid color?

Black berry that wont turn on


Remove the back of the phone. Pop out the battery. let it sit for about 10 minutes. Replace the Battery & the back cover of the phone. If the phone starts up, then let it start and immediately plug in the charger and let it charge for 1/2 hour before you touch it again.
If the phone does not start up then do not try to start it just immediately plug in the charger and let it charge for 1/2 hour before you touch it again.

It works for my Blackberry Curve 8310...
