Have a look at the pins on the mini-USB port on the side of the phone. The ends of the small wires should all be in a row resting on the bottom (towards the back side of the phone) of the tiny slots they are in. 2 of mine were not, and it would not charge because of this. I fixed mine with the following procedure (warning! semi-delicate surgery, but easy if you're near-sighted. Will void warranty, I'm sure, so just have it replaced if you're still covered by one):

Insert a small amount of the wire from a twist-tie into the slot, pushing the end of the offending USB wire down even with the others (if it doesn't fit snug, find bigger wire).

Snip off the twist-tie as close as you can with a small pair of nail clippers, then push the remaining wire in flush with a knife point.

Apply a *small* amount of super glue to the end of the wire you just pushed in flush to keep it in place.

Worked for me, your milage may vary depending on how good you are with maniplulating teeny things.

Firstly we need to narrow down the problem - Is it the charger, battery or handset?

If you can try with a different charger so if you are trying with AC charger, try with a USB charger.

If you can swap batteries, to test if another battery in your device will take a charge.

Lastly, try your battery in another device if you can to see if that device will take charge with your battery.

If you can't test on another device, I would try another battery - its probably the cheapest option. A quick glimpse at the battery in your device may give you an indication - does it look warped?

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.

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

Will not charge


Are you using the AC Adapter, or USB sync cable to computer to charge? If using your computer to charge, you will need to have USB Driver for your BlackBerry Model installed. Download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5It

Could also be that your USB Port on your BB is damaged. You can use an external Battery Charger to charge your Battery http://www.amazon.com/Blackberry-External-Battery-Charger-8300/dp/B002YGYLA8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1263514496&sr=8-2

My blackberry is not switching on


Open the back cover and clean the contacts with DRY CLOTH.

Make sure the BB and battery contacts are all line up.

Close the cover.

Use the wall charger to charge the BB for 2+ hours.


DO NOT use the USB data cable to charge your Blackberry.

When the PC/Laptop/Mac go to power saving/SLEEP mode it will cut off the charge to the Blackberry.

Plug the power pack in a different wall socket and it the Blackberry charge.

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.
