Try a new battery or have the usb port cleaned or replaced

or you can try this method for all dead blackberry phones

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. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

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.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

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.

My blackberry curve 8300 eeps cutting of by itself and i have to take the battery out and put it back in in order for my phone to work again for like five minutes then it cuts off again.


You might want to check the battery life. Sounds like it's starting to get low or die out. With most the smart phones these days the battery is supposed to be good quality but the more they try to get perfect the more there are some that gets screwed up. That or you just charged you battery too much.

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

Curve 8300 Battery Replacement Problems


You should download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

The screen just went blank. It was lit up, but no display. So I turned it off and on a couple of times, to no avail. So I tried to take the battery out and put it back in and now it won't even turn on


well, try recharging the battery and restarting your phone.
the fact that it won;t turn on leads me to believe it's battery.
the blackberry is a really good phone, is it possible the screen could have been damaged in any way. If the LCD is broken without being cracked that could be the issue.
the LCD is plugged into the motherboard and if the phone was dropped could have come unplugged or the LCD could be damaged.
The phone could actually be on and the lcd is blank.
Hard to say about any of it.
You could go to a blackberry provider store and ask them to borrow a battery out of one of their phones and check it.

Blackberry 8300 has been powein off for no reason.... I take the battery out and put the back it the hourglass comes up like its rebooting and takes a while to reload...


your battery may be getting old and needs to be replaced.
as they get older they don;t have the charge they do when they are new.
I would get a new battery and see if that handles the problem.
you can also let the battery die all the way...charge it overnight and do this for a few times in a row and see if it gets better.

But my suggestion is a new battey
