Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

Bb pearl No battery symbol

This only happens sometimes: this phone works pretty well, then sometimes when I plug it into its charger then jiggle it, or when I take the battery out, or sometimes just 'randomly,' the phone rejects its battery: battery goes in, one long red blink, then white screen with a battery with a red line through it. My solution so far has been to take out and put in the battery a thousand times or until an hourglass shows up, or to bang it against something, but the suspense of when this is going to happen is just killing me, so I wanted to know if someone else had the same problem, and a better solution!

    My phone is doing it today. It's not the first time and I think it will get worse? LoL Someone fix it! I know how you guys feel. I think I got one call in and then it started back with the battery.

Yes, yes & yes!! It's driving me absolutely insane. This has been a problem so many times previously. Was doing it to me last night... phone complete died during the night & today I cannot get it to charge @ all today. I'm seriously contemplating chucking from my bedroom window, into my friends hot tub which is four doors down!! So frustrating... so right about the suspense comment!! I have no suggestions, but feel your pain!!! :(

When i plug my blackberry pearl in its charger nothing happens. It wont turn on or nothing.


try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger

I have a bb 8320 and when i plug it into the wall it charges but when i plug it into my laptop nothing happens why is that?


If your regular charger is working in the wall, it sounds like the USB cord that you are using with your computer isn't a "charging" USB. I don't think you are having a malfunction with your BB.

Got a new blackberry pearl will not charge is it


Try a different charger (like your car charger instead of your home charger) - make sure while it's plugged in - the display shows that the charger is charging it, blinking - or bars going up or down, or a thunderbolt on the display screen next to the battery power symbol etc

Once you know your charger is working, its probably easiest to find someone else with a BB and ask them if you can trade them batteries for a day to see if it's a bad battery. ( You can usually buy a battery for $5 on ebay, or up to $20 in a cell phone store)

All in all, trade someone for their battery, or their charger - if you dont wanna buy one at first. See if the problem follows your old battery etc..

And if neither solve your problem then its the BB itself. I have called in to the cell company before and let them know we have a BB that will not hold a charge no matter what battery or charger I use... and they usually replace it under warranty as long as its less than 12 months old, and the white squares in the battery compartment are still white.

Blackberry pearl wont switch on


It looks battery completly drained and dead (as It took so much time), the best way first to check "Circuit" status in Battery through Voltmeter (poles)..or another way go to any cell phone shop and give a trial with another batterty to check status of your unit.

Blackberry charge symbol appears but does not charge battery


are you using the charger that came with the BlackBerry?  cause sometimes that can make a difference.
otherwise you might just need to get a new charger.
and usually the wall chargers work the best.
i had a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and the same thing happened to mine.

My Blackberry curve 8320 won't turn on it just has a battery icon with a red line through it on screen. A new battery was tried and the problem still exists.


This usually means the bb and battery got a little wet or has other issues. Try these solutions in order. They go from easisest to hardest. NOTE: If you have an insurance policy on the bb probably best just to take it in.

1. Remove the back cover. Remove the battery and the SIM card. Wait 30 seconds. Replace SIM, battery and back cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

2. If that doesn't work, allow the bb to remain unplugged but ON for about 24 hours to drain the battery. Remove back cover and battery. Allow battery and opened bb to sit in a dry environment for 24 - 36 hours. Relace battery and cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

3. If that fails, retry step 2 but allow battery to FULLY drain then dry out again.

4. Take in to cell store.

No battery symbol


Been searching for ages for a clever solution ... wow, banging on the desk worked, thanks v much! Trouble is, I banged my phone with the battery inserted, and although it now works, I've lost my photos. Think I should've banged the battery alone?
