I would have never believed it but after reading others posting this same problem I tried thier suggestion. Since the phone was a brick anyway, the idea was to drop the phone from a height of 4 foot and then turn it on. After several drops from shoulder height, I finaly tossed it at the ceiling and let it fall to the floor, distance approximately 8 feet. After three attempts the phone booted right up and has worked great ever since. The phone is a Blackberry model 8700c.

If it does the same thing w/ the battery removed and just on AC, it's a power regulator problem on the motherboard. If it works with the battery out, the battery is dead and you need a new one.

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.

1994 gw Interstate - turn key on - no lights neutral or oil press

It sounds like there may be an electrical leak, If the voltage goes too low, the computer either shuts down or it can go stupid where certain things won`t operate. Try turning everything off, disconnect the positive lead from the battery and connect an ammeter between the positive terminal of the battery and the positive connector that goes to the bike. There should be very little drain from the battery, (I presume it`s got a clock and maybe a radio with presets that require power). I would say if there is more than say 10 - 50mA showing on the meter, you`ve got a leak. I`ve just been explaining about one of these bikes where it was the rectifiers that were leaking. I`m only guessing so I hope this helps. Ian

My Blackberry Curve 8310 will not power up.....

That usually is a sign of a dry cell in the battery.  You might be able to boot by plugging in the wall charger to it with the bad battery.

Fter power switch put on it show blank screen and no sound only battery and power indicator is on but hard drive indicator is off. does that is a cause or some hardware problem?

it's possibly a hardware problem but you should make sure it isn't a software problem by putting in your system restore cd and restoring the DLL that you deleted, it could be an important system file. If it is a hardware problem, the first thing to try is taking out your memory and sticking it back in place, make sure it's clean and put it in there tight.
