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.

Blackberry curve wont turn on. it died then i took it home and went to charge it and the red light comes on for about 2 seconds then nothing happens and i cant turn it on


Does the phone come on while plugged in? To me it seems that the battery is dead. If you feel the battery is fine then you must visit the BB Service Center.

Hi,

Remove the battery place it back in and charge the battery for a while. After doing this press the standby key that's found on the top corner edge of your BB 9000. Switch the blackberry on and press the standby key once more. This would solve the problem.

I hv a blackberry 9000 phone and the red light blinks but I cant switch on the phone even thouh its connected to a power adapter for charging


Hi,

Take the phone off charge and take off the battery on the phone, you can now put the battery back into the phone. Press and hold the red power button on your phone. If the problem persist then go ahead and download the blackberry desktop manager unto your computer. Connect your blackberry to the computer and initiate the blackberry desktop manager. Once it shows connected as status between the phone and your BDM (blackberry Desktop Manager). Reinstall the software on your blackberry. Make sure the computer is connected to the internet.

Red led light is flashing while charging and it won't turn on


I just called Verizon Wireless who said that the phone may need to be charged completely for a few hours. Try taking the battery out and putting it back on as well.

WHY WONT MY 7280 CHARGE OR TURN ON


The red light indicates its charging.  My guess is that the battery is dead and will nto hold a charge.  This is an older model phone and the lives on the batteries is 1-3 years at most.
