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 http://computerguru365.blogspot.com/2006/02/diy-blackberry-usb-repair.html 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

When i try to get into my media file of my blacberry 8820 it gives me a message uncaught exception: net.rim.device.api.system.controlledaccessexception how can i fix it?


First, 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 like exception errors.

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.

Doesn't turn on, Red LED light stays lit


Try restoring the blackberry using the blackberry firmware update utility, if the problem persists, it's 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

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.

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.

you will have to install blackberry desktop manager in order to route enough sufficient power to your blackberry device. you can download that software from the CD rom that came with your phone or by going to the following link:

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/

as soon as you download that software go to options, connection settings and change the connection type from NONE to USB PIN: ^^^^^^^ and it will charge just fine! :)
