Have not used my Blackberry for quite a while. Went to turn it on and a red light flashes on top. The battery does not charge and red light just keeps flashing. Thought I may have scrambled battery so bought a new battery. Same thing happens. Red light flashes but will not charge or switch on. Help!!!

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.

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
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:
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.
