Try this method

When your device fails to start, it show one of these symptoms:

1. Totally dead.

2. Trying to restart, LED activity only.

3. Failed to start, a white screen with an error message.

__________________________________________________ ________

1. Physical damage, water is the worst enemy of delicate electronic device. Try drying it with a desiccant and replacing the battery. If there is no activity, you can still try the last ditch technique, nothing to loose anyway.

2. Your device is not able to start, something has gone wrong and the OS is corrupt.

3. Geeks call this an "Uncaught exception error". That is a polite way of saying, the last thread has terminated, the OS has halted because it is corrupt.

In many cases, the Application Loader can be used from Desktop Manager or Windows.

The good news, starting from scratch, you will be back in service in a couple of hours. i cant turn on my phone - biggrin.gif

Note: Windows 7 beta is not compatible with these instructions.

1. ...

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch. This was the way all 'computers worked prior to Mcintosh and Windows.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

The cell phone will not open even though the battery is charged


remove the battery then insert it again and then put the charger plug into your phone then press the power switch. Then phone will be turned on but only white screen, don't worry if this situation has done. Leave the phone for while it will turn on completely after few minutes.

If the phone will not turned on ( the screen will not go white) then go to service center they will update your phone's firmware.

I am trying to charge my phone right now but it is just a constant red light where it would usually be orange and it is saying 0% charged


did you run the battery completely flat?

my phone if it has gone dead, when plugged in to charge, has a red LED for about 5 minutes where you cannot even turn it on it is that dead. after those minutes pass the phone can then be turned on, and the LED changes color to orange to indicate it is charging and is also powered on.

I cant seem to turn on the phone, and its just a blank screen. i checked with the battery with another same phone and its battery is still full and it can be on. however, when i use the phone, i just cant...


ok so you are saying your battery is ok.Then it could be your charger or phone that is the problem.You are best going to a suppliers shop where you can try another charger.If battery and charger are ok then it must be the phone, and ask for a replacement.

Hope it helps!

My HTC p3300 battery not gettin charged. It works on direct power for some time and get automatically shutdown after some time..indicating no charge. Keeps shutting down often.


I too have been experiencing problems. Replaced the battery but it happened again. The battery says it is at almost 100% capacity however several times in the day, when I go to turn it on it doesn't respond. I end up taking the battery out and then have to connect it to a charger (USB) so that the charging light blinks red once and then turns off. I can then put in the battery again and it will start up again. If I don't connect it to the charger cable to drain (get the red light to flash once), and try just putting back in the battery, I've noticed that the screen has a faint glow as though it was on but the screen is completely blank. I'm starting to think that there must be a short circuit somewhere because I'm going to assume that the new battery is good.

Reset


well for the reset to work the phone has to fully charged or atleast 75% charged. 1. pull battery out. 2. press and hold center navigation button. 3. put battery back in. 4. press and hold power key( red end key) until keyboard or screen lights up then let go of power key. 5. continue to press center key until a black screen with green lettering comes up that says master reset.
