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.

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.

I cant turn on my blackberry pearl 8110. Red light just flashes


A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
Still if it is not working kindly remove the Battery of the Handheld and try in some other Handheld.
If the Battery is working fine in the other Handheld then there might be some problem with your Handheld, you need to walk into the service center.
If the Battery is not working in the other Handheld then there might be aproblem in the USB cable for these you need to walk into the service center

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.

Blackberry RIM went Black!!!???!


I think the reset button is under the battery cover - You may need a paperclip to reset.

Before you do the hard reset have you tried a soft reset -
ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys

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.
