My blacberry 7290 will not power on. i tried removing the battery and then tried repowering but that does not work. all it does is show a red light flashing.

If you have a friend that has a BlackBerry with the same model as yours, you may borrow the battery and try it on your handheld. If the same problem occur, then send your BlackBerry to the authorized repair station.

Thank you and good luck!

Just stopped working, cannot charge, red light only

It could need a new battery. It doesn't sound like it's holding a charge anymore.

Went to wipe phone

The device should turn on even without the SIM card. I assume that you have done a "wipe handheld" action from the security options menu.

First try to take the battery out, leave it outside for 15 seconds and then put it back. In case this does not resolve the problem, you will have to relad the software using the desktop manager and application loader

How to unlock black berry 7290

The first thing you can try is to wipe the applications and operating system from the device. This will result in lost information, but at this point you won't be able to get any data from it anyway because it isn't turning on. You can follow the steps in the links below. This requires you to wipe the applications, then release the operating system back on to the device:

If that first link doesn't work, try this one:

Once you get that wiped then you can upgrade the operating system on the device:

Hi 7290 problems

yes.... you battery (or chgarger) is either faulty or the unit has been damaged. Take it to a store, and ask them to insert a different battery. If that does not work, lets hope you still have warranty remaining on it.
