It could need a new battery. It doesn't sound like it's holding a charge anymore.

How does the charge indicator work-- after the charger light has gone to a steady green light when ~I disconnect and switch on the indicater shows an almost continuous red line across the display


You are fully charged. As you use up your charge the red line will get smaller from right to left and when you get down to 2-3 lights you need to recharge. If you use your scooter daily then recharge every night plug in when you goto bed unplug in the morning and you are good to go. if you do this the batteries should last ya 2-3 years. Hope this helps

My BB 8520 battery got drained last nite and i start charging it in the morning, only red lighhts flashing on the led but its not opening at all.i charge it for 4 hours still not opening.


Hello,

The battery cell is very weak. Using a charger won't wake it up. To wake up the battery cell, you need to charge the battery with a desktop charger. After that, you can continue charging with your BB charger.

I hope you understand the message I am try to pass above.

I summary, the battery cell needs to be boosted to wake up the battery cell. Your BB charger cannot do that.

Good luck.

Dose you p.c pick the device up.If so make sure you have desktop manger on there and reflash the software,this should then let you turn the handset on. If not then you may need a replacement.

Alternator/battery message in red is appearing specially in the morning or when using AC and light at night. c 230 Kompressor 2003 ???


you have a charging system problem, low voltage output most likely due to a defective diode in the alternators rectifier circuit.

Blackberry bold suddenly shut down


Lots of battery issues with the Bold. Try taking the battery out, keeping it out and connecting to PC with USB. Do any lights come on? Red light should appear. Put battery in while connected to USB.

Another fix that I found for a friend-leave the battery out of the unit for a day-put it in and plug in power cord or USB. It worked.
