Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

Blackberry curve 8300 suddently died

My Blackberry curve (in use for about 20 months) was low on battery. I left it on the table and after 2-3 hours noticed it was turned off. Assuming that battery ran out of juice, I plugged it in, but it won't turn back on. First few times after plugging it in, the red light turned on and there was a large battery charging icon on the screen. After a few attempts to turn it on, the battery icon turned to a large icon with a red line through the battery.

Assuming this battery needed some charge, I left it plugged in for several hours, but phone won't turn on or show any icon. It was completely dead.

I swapped batteries with a colleague who has a similar phone to check. My battery worked in his phone, his battery (which works in his phone) didn't work in mine though.

I haven't tried buying a new battery since the current battery works in another phone, so I assume it has juice left, except my BlackBerry won't turn on.

1. try this method
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')

Try somebody else's battery, if the problem persists, it's most likely a logic board issue. There are blackberry repair websites that show you how to do the replacement yourself, otherwise here is a service that can repair any Blackberry Bold, Storm, Pearl, Curve, 8800 for screen, lenses,
track balls, usb ports, waterdamage etc.
The website is: Blackberry Repair

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.

My blackberry 8300 will not turn on, recent water damage. It worked before and after I dropped it in water, but now it won't turn on at all.


If your BlackBerry gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.
1. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON
2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.
