My blackberry 7290 wont charge with the wall charger or the usb cable wat should i do

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Feb 22, 2009

    BB 7290 will not charge with any power source connected.



    On close scrutiny, I found pin 1 of the USB Mini AB receptacle (the charge/data port) pushed back and lodged up against the rear of the connector shell. Without making contact with the mating pin of the cable, it is impossible to charge the 7290 with anything that plugs into the port.



    Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to find a source for the USB Mini AB receptacle that is mounted on the motherboard of the phone. If anyone knows where to buy them I can repair any 7290 that has the same problem so please let me know..

Sounds like the charging port has gone bad. Try CPR in New York City. They are faster than the manufacturer, and cheaper! They have a usual turnaround of 1-2 business days. And if you become a fan on their facebook page, mention it and you will get a 10% discount.
Here is the link to their facebook page, it has all the info you need.

Hope it helps!

Honestly, bring the phone, battery, and both the home-charger and USB-cable into a Storefront location that has a technician (call-ahead) and plan on dropping off your phone for a few hours. They will test the battery, phone and charger and let you know which, if any are defective and replace under warranty if you are still under warranty. Don't forget to take advantage of any upgrade offers, as this is an older model and you may be much happier with a store-representative matching-you with a device that fits your needs and is problem-free! (Usually it's the battery on this model - probably around $30-$40 for a new one - the batteries do degrade slowly over the months and years.)

Hi mate i have blackberry 7290 its problem is whe i power onthe phone its giving following error "DEVICE ERROR:365 RESET" then i try to flash the phone but soft ware giving this message UNABLE TO...


Try uninstalling the Blackberry Software Suite and the Blackberry drivers from your computer from the device manager. Power off the Blackberry, then connect it to the USB cable to see if it begins to charge. Look for the device to show up on Windows. If it does not show up, try booting the Blackberry device back up. If you're still not seeing anything (and especially if the phone isn't even charging), it could possibly be a hardware issue.

My blackberry 8820 won't charge


What are you using to charge it -- the AC adapter (wall charger) or the car charger? Try using the other one and see if it will charge that way -- if it will, the problem is whichever adapter won't charge it. If neither will, then maybe you have a problem with the battery.

If you don't have a car charger, you can also try charging it from your computer by using a USB cable.

My blackberry phone wont power up or charge


It probably wont power up because it wont charge. the USB port may be bad preventing it from charging. I assume you have tried both the wall charger and the computer connection and have not had any luck with either one. Its probably the USB port has stopped working. common problem if the USB cable had been yanked or severely stressed while plugged in to the phone

Blackberry 7290 battery icon with line hrough battery


This can indicate that the battery can no longer hold a sufficient charge for the device and may need to be replaced. To be sure, you can download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

Blabkberry wont charge or turn on.


That usually means dirty power. Make sure you are using a good cable to charge the phone, not all micro-usb chargers work...for example some of the motorola chargers. Make sure there isn't a short in the charger cable. See if the same problem occurs when you attach to the computer USB.

Why will my phone not power on? The let stays solid while charging but will not power on


are you trying to charge the phone with the wall charger or the USB cable. if it is the USB cable then chk if the USB port both on the laptop and the hand held is faulty or not, then chk if the USB cable is faulty or not. if you are to charge through the wall charger then check if the charge is faulty if every thing this is fine then get chk the battery.

My Blackberry Wont charge?!


look at the 6 pins on the phones charge port and see if one is higher than the others (usually on the end). if the pins is too far up the lower half doesnt connect to the charger. If your usb port will charge on via usb "DOCK" then more than likely the charger itself (which is way more simple to fix)

1.) if one of the pins on the phones charge port is pushed up, grab a sewing needle and GENTLY push the pin back into place,

2.) if the charging dock is working and is a usb charger like your wall charger, buy a new wall charger at your local electronics store.

hope this helps!
