You could take it to a mobile reapir shiop and have them try to revive it for you or you can try the following steps below.

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,

If that fails to connect, there is one final solution. Go Old Skool ...

The good news, starting from scratch, you will be back in service in a couple of hours. cant recharge my BBcurve - biggrin.gif


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.

Included in my Ryobi printed instructions are the statements: 1-"Green LED on indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is in maintenance charge mode. 2-"To obtain the longest...


Any battery left in a charger is still hooked up to a circuit. Depending on the charger this can mean a slow discharge is possible. Ryobi's Maintenance Charge Mode means the charger will 'refresh' the battery at regular intervals, usually every 30 days. A battery's lifespan is determined by how many times it is discharged/recharged so to get 'the longest possible battery life' it is desirable to reduce the number of times a battery is recharged. One way is to use the battery until it is dead or near so another is to remove the battery from the charger when it's fully charged to reduce the number of times the charger refreshes the battery.

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.

Kodak C340 I installed new batteries and docked it over night and the camera still dose not turn on


with new batterys you may find if quicker to charge them in a battery charger and not in the camera,,,the camera charger is for "topping up" the batterys realy not fully recharging them its so you can leave the camera on its docking port and it will have fully charged batterys in it when you wont to use it,, to fully charge a new set of batterys it could take days,,,,so overnight is to short a charge to recharge them,,,leave the camera on its docking station for a fuw days at least, or use a home charger for your type of battery ie:AAA or AA, both take 16 hours to recharg fully

My Blackberry curve 8320 won't turn on it just has a battery icon with a red line through it on screen. The icon stays on with the backlight until the battery dies, A new battery was tried and problem...


This usually means the bb and battery got a little wet or has other issues. Try these solutions in order. They go from easisest to hardest. NOTE: If you have an insurance policy on the bb probably best just to take it in.

1. Remove the back cover. Remove the battery and the SIM card. Wait 30 seconds. Replace SIM, battery and back cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

2. If that doesn't work, allow the bb to remain unplugged but ON for about 24 hours to drain the battery. Remove back cover and battery. Allow battery and opened bb to sit in a dry environment for 24 - 36 hours. Relace battery and cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

3. If that fails, try another battery (a friends or one from your cellstore) to see if tat's the problem. If so, (a) retry step 2 but allow battery to FULLY drain then dry out again, (b) buy a new battery for $60 retail or (c) buy a new battery on ebay for a lot less.

4. Take in.
