1. It could be a dead battery. Try replacing your battery with one you are sure is working. Ask a friend who has a working Blackberry of the same make and model, if you can use their battery to test your Blackberry.
2. If your Blackberry doesn't respond to a working battery, it may be a damaged power supply. At this point, your blackberry needs repair or replacement. If it is still under warranty, send it back; otherwise, find a blackberry repair shop or buy a new blackberry.

My blackberry bold wont charge no light comes on just completely dead could it be a faulty battery

Does the red light come one when you plug it into a charger? if not, and your charger works on other phones, than you probably have a broken usb port. (check if it is loose). You're gonna have to disassemble the phone and repair the USB port : Blackberry Repair Guide.

Take the battery out and start the blackberry desktop manager. The blackberry can be restored in this condition. Just search for restoring bb to factory settings on the web. Here is an Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair.

Keeps rebooting itself over and over

Symptom: My blackberry BB keeps rebooting and restarting; endless loop.

Solution: Remove battery, Re-Insert Battery, replace case backing & PRESS & HOLD on back of casing when reboot gets to just before home screen.
Keep holding until home screen comes up completely and everything loads. (usually 10-15 seconds once home screen appears)
IMPORTANT: WHERE to press & hold back of phone/battery casing when rebooting;
On back of phone casing there are 2 gold strips that hold 2 gold nodes on phone down. THIS IS WHERE you press.
In essence you are firmly holding these nodes down with back casing on, just as phone reboots to home screen.

Works every time for me. Hope it works for you.

My blackberry bold 9000 wont let me ring out or recieve calls

take the battery out of your bold and put it back in that will reboot your software.
that should clear up the problem.

Removing the battery is how you reset the software on a smartphone
