Red means no juice obviously, try letting the phone charge for a while to at least the yellow light. If the problem persists, understand that wear and tear on these phones will often times wear out the buttons on the side of it, or there could be another underlying issue I'm not understanding, but when my phone started acting up with the power button, I took it to the dealership that sold me the phone and had them replace it under factory warranty. If you're not feeling ambitious enough to do that, just press the button harder next time.

Just sacrificed an old USB mouse (it had two black wires, one full length...


Your battery has been depleted past a chargable state.  This is a due to a bad design in the phone that doesn't monitor the battery power state well enough.  It actually allows the battery to be taken under the minimum amount needed to recharge the battery. 

You can fix this, but do so at your own risk.

You can simply purchase a new battery, that will work, just been sure not to let it deplete the battery totally anymore.

Now, on to the fix

-Take out the battery.
-Get any usb cable you can find sitting around. (any usb wire will do, an old printer cable, anything with a usb end that can plug into your computer)
-cut one end of the plug off. You need to leave the side on that connects to your computer. Cut off the side that plugs into a device (printer, camera, web cam, etc)
-Strip the rubber off the wire and expose the wires inside.
-Separate the wires from each other. You will only be using the BLACK and RED wires.
-strip the very end of the black and red wires carefully using a wire cutter exposing the metal wire inside the red and black covering.
-Plug in your home made battery charger to your computer. Careful not to touch any exposed metal, as it will give you a small shock.
****WARNING****
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW THE RED AND BLACK WIRE TO TOUCH EACH OTHER
****WARNING****

-now carefully hold the black wire to the negative terminal on the battery (it should be noted with a black circle with a - in the middle). Then touch the red wire to the positive terminal (it will be noted with a red circle with a + in the middle).

Hold the 2 wires there for 20 seconds. Then quickly plug the battery back into the phone, and then plug it into a regular charger. Give it little bit of time, if you've done everything correctly the charge light should come on.

I had to repeat the last step again to get the light to turn on indicating it was charging.

You must not hold the wires to the battery for too long, 20 seconds should do it. You can overload a battery with this trick and actually make it explode if you hold it there too long. You are well within the few minutes needed to detonate the battery due to overcharging by sticking very strictly to 20 seconds.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.

One you get a charge light give it a few minutes in the off position, then try powering up the device and keep it plugged in until you get 100% charge.

Good luck,

Peter

Hi there, i have a blackberry rim and cant turn it on, when i plug the cord in to charge it up the red light at the top flashes on for a second then the whole thing goes dead again....help plz and thanks...


It sounds like an issue with the battery. Check the battery is not warped and is genuine. Easiest option is replace the battery.

To make sure it is battery related, Try to charge via USB or another AV charger.

Will not power up on AC or usb adapter


If you have an extra charger for the phone remove the end take the exposed copper wires hold them to the positive and negative post's on the battery for about 3 minutes and then plug into the normal charger.
I know this works I did it to my phone last night.

My phone wont turn on.


If the charging light comes on with the charger plugged in you probably have a broken power button. if the charging light does not come on while plugged in, your charging port most likely is damaged. take it to your local cell phone technician. if you havent any nearby you can contact www.fixphonenow.com ,they should be able to repair it.

Charging indicator stays red


Hmmm...is the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.
you want a repair service

8125 will not reboot


You need to jump start the battery.. The phone's charging capability is controlled by software (pretty dumb) so without enough juice from the battery it won't charge.

Grab an old USB cable (or other 5 volt source) and cut off one end.. take the red wire and put it on the battery contact on the end with the red plus sign. Put the black wire on the other end. Hold the wires there for about 3 minutes. Be careful not to switch the positive and negative.

Now reinsert the battery into the device, and without turning it on, plug in your charger. the charging light should come on shortly, and just leave it off charging for about an hour before turning it on..

Thats all Folks
