It could need a new battery or a new charger. Do you have a mobile phone store nearby to take it to to test it?

    Theres a couple of ways to do it. If you contact your provider, they should be able to tell you the best way to reset it.

If your trying to charge it with usb. I have found the battery needs to have a certain amount of charge before it will engage charging with usb cables. (connect to your pc ) If this is the case try plugging into wall charger.

Blackberry shuts off and red light keeps flashing. I take the battery out and put it back in and it still wont work. Then randomly it will turn on and work for a bit. Im so lost, please help!


The flashing red light is telling you that the battery is almost drained down to capacity and that the phone must be plugged in now. When the charge is this low you are going to have to leave the phone recharge for at least 12 hours before trying to use it again. Once the phone is turned back on, the phone will reset itself. Good luck.

The red light is telling you that your phone is on. It will flash regaurdless if you have a text or not. When you charge it the light turns green.

Blackberry pearl won't turn on


There are no special ways of turning on the Blackberry.

Simply power on - it is fully charged - if this doesn't work, remove the battery for a couple of seconds and re-try power on.

My blackberry pearl 8100 wont turn on


I have an answer for the 3-2 red light blink w/black screen. Remove the battery, hold the end call button and put the battery back in. The red light should stay on for a while now. Push and hold the call button and alternate with the end call button untill the hourglass shows. Allow some time to boot up. I stumbled upon this, so if this doesnt work, try simmilar procedrues. I did get mine to work. Good Luck, dont give up, it flashes that 3-2 code for a reason.
