Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone

1 Answer

My phone keeps dying. I will charge fine, but when I use it in any capacity it will just die on me. The only way it will restart is by plugging it back in. Would a new battery fix this? If not will anything fix it?

    Would that be it, even if the battery is full charged? If just doesn't seem to want to stay powered on.

    Oh I am not reluctant. It's not that the battery is losing a charge. Once I plug it back and it turns back on, the battery is still full. It was dropped so I believe it maybe a bigger problem. It will work if I keep it plugged in to a source, as soon as I unplug it, it will shut off within a minute or two of use. However the battery still shows full the whole time. Makes me believe it's something bigger. I may try the battery and see if that helps first!
    Thank you!

New battery seems logical first choice since it can't supply power for long despite being charged.

    Despite going through the charging procedure, it would appear the battery can't hold a charge - it discharges quickly with little use. Being fully charged and holding the charge aren't the same. This can happen to any battery - including a car battery. Even if you have a warranty, the batteries probably aren't covered since they do wear out.
    I may be wrong, but I'm guessing batteries are lots cheaper than replacing the phone or paying someone to repair it. Unless there has been some physical damage to the phone, I don't understand your reluctance to give the cheap fix a try.

    OK so it's been damaged - that's a very important detail you neglected to mention. Don't buy another battery; get the phone repaired - or at least get an estimate & then decide. It's not likely the battery was damaged by being dropped.

My dodge avenger dies out, battery light on and engine eventually dies, have to keep charging battery

Take the battery for a capacity check. At the same time let them check the charging rate off the vehicle. Either the battery is totally unserviceable or the vehicle is not charging it properly.

Fully charged phone just went dead and will not restart.

See if there is a reset button on the phone. If not, I am afraid the phone has died for whatever the reason.

Battery is dying after 10 min talk time

Normally when a battery does that it has to do with it's very first charge. If the phone was turned on at all before the first charged reached it's full capacity, one day out of no where it will just die very quickly. You should also notice that when it charges it reaches a full charge more quickly than it did before. If that is not the case then you just got a defective battery. I can tell you for sure it doesn't have anything to do with the memory card.

It wont keep a charge, the battery dies way to fast, it wont charge it with the cigarette lighter, or the house charger. once i unplug it it dies. I replaced the cigarette lighter and the home charger, and...

rechargeable batterries fade with age, neglect or misuse. Your battery is almost 2 years old from the time you purchased it, (probably 6 to 12 months older), so could indeed be dying. I just replaced a phone in my cell phone that was holding a charge for less than a day. The replacement from batterybuyer dot com fixed the problem and now my phone stays charged for 3 to 4 days.

Open the case of the GPS unit and the battery will have its specifications marked on it, usually a serial number and voltage, plus capacity in Milli-amp hours.

I think your batteries haven`t been charged properly,or they have been left standing so the charge has leaked out.At a minimum your batteries need to be charged for 12 hrs a day for the first month if not they will not build the capacity and will dwindle and die for example it is at only 25% capacity,but looks like a fullcharge, it says it fully charged but will die
quickly this happens because it is charged to its full capacity but that is only 25% of the batteries true potential
resulting in short battery life.
Unfortunately majority of scooter batteries like this have to be newly replaced.

1991 Dodge Grand Caravan dies while driving won't restart

If it sputters or hesitates while driving I would suggest a new fuel filter. If it runs smoothly and just dies out you may have a fuel pump which needs to be replaced because it is going bad. If fuel pump relays or other types of relevant fuses are blown it would not start at all. Your mechanic could also pull a spark plug and check for a blueish white high voltage spark if it has an orange or reddish tint that would denote a lower voltage spark normally from a worn out coil pack, spark plug, plug wire etc. Through advanced engine diagnostics you can have your vehicle connected to an oscilloscope or a cylinder dwell meter which can cancel out spark to each cylinder to check for function. However your best bet may be the fuel pump, if your vehicle dies again check to see if your vehicle is getting any fuel first then you'll know for sure.
