Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

My Blackberry pearl will not charge

I plugged it in the charger yesterday, and it would charge for a few seconds and then stop working. There is no water damage, and its the same way with a different usb cable. Any suggestions? I called and should get a new one soon, but I really need it on soon and it's dead.

When i plug my blackberry pearl in its charger nothing happens. It wont turn on or nothing.

try a secondary battery as well as a second charger (I believe the pearl uses micro USB, which is also used by bluetooth headsets, other phones, and pcs- you could even plug it into a pc with the cable to see if it charges)
If neither works, the phone is unfortunately dead. However if the battery works, bad battery. If the different charger works, bad charger

My blackberry pearl wont charge

If it won't charge with the AC adapter, have you tried using the car charger? It may just be the adapter that doesn't work. You can also plug it into your computer with the USB cable and see if it will charge that way.

I have owned my Pearl for about 4 years I stopped using it around 2 years ago due to the trackerball not working correctly. i have spradicly pluged it in to retrieve old numbers, pictures, see if there was...

Your initial thought is probably the answer, the battery has internally short circuited due to age. In this case, the charger cannot produce enough energy to overpower the battery's consumption. While I do not recommend trying this, a tech center I worked at would "shock" a battery back to life by connecting it to a car charger for a few seconds to eek a few more weeks or months of use out of one. Again, I don't recommend this as a battery can explode and cause harm when treated this way.

My Blackberry suddenly quite working and would not turn off so I pulled the battery and then tried again but all I get is a red light for 10 seconds then nothing.

I left the battery out all night and then reinserted it and plugged the phone into the charger to charge up the battery. As soon as the charger was connected the Blackberry it fired up normally. Go figure!

I cant get my blackberry pearl to charge!

Yes I would take it back to your purchase place for repair or replacement. Only other way to charge is by using an external battery charger:

I am getting that 523 error on my refurbished 8330 blackberry. was working fine yesterday

Take the battery out and put it back in after 30 seconds or so. While the device is rebooting (or while the hourglass is still spinning), .plug it into the PC Then open the application loader and remove the 3rd-party application that's causing the issue

Blackberry charge symbol appears but does not charge battery

are you using the charger that came with the BlackBerry?  cause sometimes that can make a difference.
otherwise you might just need to get a new charger.
and usually the wall chargers work the best.
i had a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and the same thing happened to mine.

If everything is fine contact service center
