I have the same problem.  The following solution may apply; here is how to IDENTIFY the problem: (1) Phone doesn't connect to desktop software through USB but will through BT (if setup) (2) Phone doesn't charge whether USB-computer, USB-wall, USB-carcharger or does sometimes but you are not sure why it works sometimes but not all the time (3) If you hold, lean, twist, or jiggle the plug at the phone, it may charge or the charge icon may show briefly (Also) Plug is noticeably loose or comes out Solution: if plug is torn loose, damaged, or comes all the way out, go to this site and follow along in kind If plug is simply intermittant: remove all power and the battery, open your phone, and carefully redo the solder joints of the plug.  If you don't have a SMT (surface mount) rated soldering iron w/ tip, you can use the radio shack standard but be sure to only apply the hot tip in pulses (less than/up to 50% of time, less than 3sec each touch) so you don't heat damage the surrounding components. Why: Because the plug gets tugged to the sides causing the solder joints to crack (microscopically).  At first I had to lean books against the plug but then that quit working as well.
This approach also worked on my laptop which quit charging when plug torque flexed the motherboard and cracked the solder at some surface components near the plug.  I found out which components when the varying the force of my multimeter tip cause the component to show open and normal across the solder joint

Your Blackberry might have a USB cable to connect to a charger, or USB adapter. for charging. If so, plug that USB cable into the computer, and it should be seen by the computer. Turn the device on so it will be seen.

If all you have is a charger cable that goes to a 110 outlet, you'll have to get the required cable. Do a search online for "blackberry to usb cable".

Or try this search for other ideas:

    Well my blackberry keyboard was off so when i tried to input my password it was wrong so now all that appears on my screen is th JVM Error 513 what do i do? i am manager and need my phone fixed asap please...

    First, download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from:

    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.

    If the issue is still present, then it could be hardware related, and may need to be repaired or replaced. I would then suggest contacting your Provider for Hardware Support.

    Blackberry 8800 will not charge on wall charger

    You need to find out if the problem is with your current AV charger - the battery or the phone.

    Clean the battery and the metal connection with a dry cloth, and try to charge using a USB charger.

    You have to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Connect the Blackberry into different USB port of the computer.
    2. Try connecting the phone in to different computer to test if there's really a problem with the phone.
    3. Try using different USB cable for the phone.
    4. Check the user manual to see if you need to set it as "Mass Storage Device" before connecting it to the computer.

    Otherwise, you need to consult the phone manufacturer for some advise.

    Have a great day!

    Logging onto my personal IP address

    "HTTP Error 403 Forbidden" indicates a server permission error. You need to allow either anon access to the IP camera. You can probably do this using a local PC connected to the SAME subnetted network that your IP Camera is on.
