Take backup and reinstall the software using Blackberry desktop manager.
If still facing the same problem check with the battery as there might be some faulty.
If still facing problem contact service center.

MOTORCYCLE BATTERY GOES FLAT


Have you checked the charging output from your alternator? With the engine running, you should get about 14 volts across the battery terminals. If the battery is good, after a charge you should get a reading of around 12.7 to 13.2 volts. If the voltage is less, especially with the motor running, you may have a charging problem due to rectifier bank failure or battery breakdown due to "overcharging" if the reading is above 14 volts. [This is also a rec' fault]. My assumptions are that this batt' goes flat when run on the bike after a full charge. I hope this helps a bit.

Hi, my bb9000 consumes battery very fast please advice what should i do in this regard?


Instructions
    • 1 Turn off your wireless and Bluetooth when they are not in use. If you leave your wireless settings on, your phone is constantly looking for a wireless connection, even if one isn't readily available. This eats up battery power. Touch "Manage Connections" from your home screen and select "Off" for wireless connection. Then turn your wireless on when you know a connection is available.
    • 2 Close applications when you're finished using them. Leaving applications running uses memory and battery power, especially if those applications send you frequent notifications, like Facebook. Once you're done using an application, use the Blackberry button and select "Close" at the bottom of the menu to close the app completely and avoid notifications until you open the app again.
    • 3 Use your applications wisely. If you're running short on battery life, it may not be a good time to run Google Maps or other applications that use a lot of battery power. In general, battery-consuming applications are those the need a constant internet or data connection and cause you to receive frequent notifications.
    • 4 Change your vibrate notifications so that they occur less frequently, and use audio notifications when you can. Vibration actually uses more battery life than a ring tone. While you may need to put your phone on vibrate when you need to use your phone discreetly, shortening the amount of vibration notifications you get can conserve battery life. Choose "Options" from your home screen, and then "Sounds and Ringtones." Choose "Ringtones" from the drop down menu and select the type of ringtone you want. To decrease the volume of your vibration -- and therefore the power you use -- press the volume buttons on the side of the phone when the phone is in vibrate mode.
    • 5 Decrease the backlight timeout, which keeps the keys on your Bold lit for a specified amount of time after you stop using them. The shorter the timeout, the less battery power you'll waste. Visit "Options" from your home screen and then choose "Screen/Keyboard." Adjust the backlight settings so you only have three to five second before timeout and the backlight shuts off. You can also use the settings to dim the backlight to use less power.

I have a b&q rechargeable 1m candle power lantern, how long do I leave it on charge from being flat as the charger unit does not have a led incorporated in it.


Probably between 3 to 5 hours.
Check battery regularly. It should be warm while charging. When it begins to get hot it is charged. If you charge the battery for longer, there is the increased danger of fire or leakage from the battery.
Note how long the battery has been charged for and during for future charges, reduce the charging time.
NiCad batteries should be run flat before being recharged rather than being topped up in order to get maximum life out of the batteries. This is less critical with NiMh batteries.

Only getting about 10 hours standby on Blackberry 8520


Hi one reason batterys dont last as long as they should is that when you charge them up they never achieve full charge and some cells will only take between 50 and 65 % charge, what you should now try is letting the battery go totally flat so that your phone wont even light up when you try switching it on keep doing this until the battery is totally dead, then give it a full recharge, you should now find it lasts a lot longer, you should aim to do this once a month to ensure you battery stays at its best, they dont tell you this when you buy the phone but it is common knowledge in the phone industry.

give it a try and you should be surprised what you find.

How ever you cant always believe what the phone adverts tell you because their are heavy duty batteries you can buy for certain phones, but if you think you have a good case of false advertisement then contact the phones makers and have a word with them they may even send you some free extras as they like to keep their customers happy,

You also got to remember that standby time means 17 days if the phone is not used and no one rings it say you take the sim card out then give it full charge, then with the sim card out see how long the battery lasts then this will give you some idea of the things that use the battery up such as alarms, people ringing, texts, even when you press a button this uses power to light the screen up so you can only rely on standby time if the phone is sitting their doing nothing.

i hope this as been some help to you

Only 15 hours of stand by mode battery run out


Make sure there is nothing else running. Press and hold the Blackberry menu button. Then it will show the applications running. Make sure its just the normal ones. Also what do you having running in the background that might now show up on the app list. For example, Facebook, myspace, twitter, etc. all these communicate back to the server taking up valuable battery life.
I use my Storm a lot for business and end up charging it every night. I have the original Storm from when they came out and the battery seems to last ok.

My Blackberry curve 8320 won't turn on it just has a battery icon with a red line through it on screen. The icon stays on with the backlight until the battery dies, A new battery was tried and problem...


This usually means the bb and battery got a little wet or has other issues. Try these solutions in order. They go from easisest to hardest. NOTE: If you have an insurance policy on the bb probably best just to take it in.

1. Remove the back cover. Remove the battery and the SIM card. Wait 30 seconds. Replace SIM, battery and back cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

2. If that doesn't work, allow the bb to remain unplugged but ON for about 24 hours to drain the battery. Remove back cover and battery. Allow battery and opened bb to sit in a dry environment for 24 - 36 hours. Relace battery and cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

3. If that fails, try another battery (a friends or one from your cellstore) to see if tat's the problem. If so, (a) retry step 2 but allow battery to FULLY drain then dry out again, (b) buy a new battery for $60 retail or (c) buy a new battery on ebay for a lot less.

4. Take in.

My Dell Inspiron 1520 seems to use a lot of battery power, even when the lid is closed, and nothing is running. Is there any way to save battery power, without going into standby mode, or turning off the...


How long does your battery usually last? If it lasts 2 hours or more, that's normal for a notebook computer. The standby mode and turning off of hard drives is what notebooks are designed to do to give you more battery life. If you have to have it on and available all the time without going into standy mode, you'll need to get used to charging it every couple of hours. If you want to get more battery life, try the following options:
1) have the display turned off when not in use (this setting can be changed where you set up your screensaver)
2) turn off the wireless function (if available) when not in use
3) have the computer go to standby mode after 10 or 15 minutes of inactivity.
4) lower the brightness of your display

All of the above assumes that you're getting a decent charge and can use the notebook unplugged for 2 hours or more. Naturally, over time, notebook batteries wear down and don't hold a charge as well as they once did. If your notebook is a few years old and you're only getting an hour or so on a full battery, then it is probably time to invest in a new battery. If your notebook is new and you are getting this short battery life, contact Dell for a replacement battery as yours may be defective.

One last thing about notebook batteries. They are designed to be charged up and run down. If you leave your computer plugged in to a/c power all the time while you are using your computer, this greatly speeds up the wearing down of the battery. Whenever possible, you should fully charge your battery and then run the battery down to 10% or less before plugging it back in. This ensures that you get the most battery life on a consistent basis.

Hope this help. Please take a moment to rate the solution. Thanks.
