Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

3 Answers

My Blackberry pearl will not charge via wall outlet charger or USB (or any other charger). The battery is fine as I can charge it in my other blackberry and I have to keep switching batteries back and forth. I've tried cleaning contacts with an eraser to no avail. Any ideas?

The terminals would have to be faulty .
Check the contacts first , turn your phone off before removing the battery and make sure to have all the contacts pins intact .
you may have also a bad circuit but it sounds more like contact problem to me

Your most likely going to have to buy a new phone my blackberry pearl did the same thing and it was because something was wrong with the inside of the charger port mine would say it was charging for all of about 5 seconds then disappear or you can go to your phone company and tell them that it is messed up and ask them for more batteries. good luck hope i helped :)

When i plug my blackberry pearl in its charger nothing happens. It wont turn on or nothing.


try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger

I cant get my blackberry pearl to charge!


Yes I would take it back to your purchase place for repair or replacement. Only other way to charge is by using an external battery charger: http://www.amazon.com/External-Battery-Charger-Original-Blackberry/dp/B001MEV8LI/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1263336321&sr=8-7

There might be some problem with the charger or with the Battery, kindly remove the battery and check with other handheld if it is working fine then there is a problem with the charger and you need to walk into the service center.

Blackberry charge symbol appears but does not charge battery


are you using the charger that came with the BlackBerry?  cause sometimes that can make a difference.
otherwise you might just need to get a new charger.
and usually the wall chargers work the best.
i had a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and the same thing happened to mine.

My Blackberry Wont charge?!


look at the 6 pins on the phones charge port and see if one is higher than the others (usually on the end). if the pins is too far up the lower half doesnt connect to the charger. If your usb port will charge on via usb "DOCK" then more than likely the charger itself (which is way more simple to fix)

1.) if one of the pins on the phones charge port is pushed up, grab a sewing needle and GENTLY push the pin back into place,

2.) if the charging dock is working and is a usb charger like your wall charger, buy a new wall charger at your local electronics store.

hope this helps!

Hi there, i have a blackberry rim and cant turn it on, when i plug the cord in to charge it up the red light at the top flashes on for a second then the whole thing goes dead again....help plz and thanks...


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 pearl not holding charge


Sorry to say, I encountered this same problem. I checked the prongs, used different power cords, different outlets, usb cord, and different batteries and yet still nothing worked. The only remedy to this situation is replacing the phone.
