Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

2 Answers

No power I just got my Blackberry and it wont even turn on! It seems like it's charging as there is a greenish light flashing on the top corner but when I push the on/off button the light goes off straight away. The screen doesnt even attempt to flicker when I 'try' to turn it on... Help?

    Hi,

    I tried that, still nothing! The starnge thing is, even though the battery doesnt seem to charge (whether its just the screen i dont know) but I hit the voice command button on the side and it talked to me. Still no flicker on the screen, nothing!



    Thanks for replying! :)

Take the battery out, wait 30 seconds, reinsert. it should start up on its own. if it doesnt work come back for more help.

My black berry pearl wont turn on i charge it and im only seeing a red flashing light.


This is a very common issue. I have repaired the issue and have even experienced the problem on one of my own BlackBerry phones. The charging port, the USB port that is, must be replaced. It is quite the annoying problem but getting the USB port repaired would be your only option. Other than that, take a look at the port, see that all the pins look okay and maybe you can get lucky.

Good luck!!

Hello,

the problem is from your phone board, its dead.

You need to flash the phone in order to wake it up.

Take care.

My phone is not powering on when i plug the charger in it has a green light in the top right corner but its not turning on when i press and hold the button on the top left 


try taking the battery out and while holding the power button in put the battery back in, if you still get nothing on the screen try doing the same , holding the power button down while you insert the charger.

If a tri coloured screen appears you will be able to reflash it, if it doesnt appear, then your battery is dead and it wont charge no matter how much you try, the MDA(or wizard) wont charge the battery, unless windows is running, i would recommend you buy a new battery, they are cheap enough

NOTE!!!
If the battery is very low but you can get the multicoloured bootscreen, i would not advise flashing it as you have no idea of how much charge is in the battery, if the battery fails during flashing you wont have a phone anymore

My samsung blackjack 2 will not charge. the battery is now totally dead, will not turn on and will not charge even with the wall outlet charger or the computer usb charger. when the phone still had some...


If the Red Led stays turned on it is as simple as this.....the solder connecting your power on button to the system board in your phone has worn off..... you must pop the power button at the top of your phone off and you will be able to see where the soldering paste has simply worn off. At my job I have a soldering machine so it was not problem for me. I simply took pasted it back to the board with tin.....now this may require some work. just pop off the top section of you phone with a flathead screw driver and pop out the power button. look closely and you should be able to see where the botton has lifted from the little greenish system board..... Find someone to solder it, put it back together and it works like new.........SEE YA

WHY WONT MY 7280 CHARGE OR TURN ON


The red light indicates its charging.  My guess is that the battery is dead and will nto hold a charge.  This is an older model phone and the lives on the batteries is 1-3 years at most.
