SOURCE: Cannot get my Bold 9000 to start. Red light

If that did not get wet, you may have a system board problem. I would take it into the wireless store to get it replaced.

Dead battery. Try that first.
If that's not the case. the battery contact terminal might be bad. Which is common.

Chances are, it's just a fried battery that needs to be replaced

MY BLACKBERRY BOLD 9000 WON'T TURN ON!!! My friend gave me her Blackberry Bold 9000. It's battery was replaced a few months ago but it hasn't been used since then. When I plug it into the wall charger,...

Ok...don't panic. The charger you are using is not compatible. Verizon only works with verizon blackberry's. Non verizon will not work with blackberry and vice versa. This is what will happen. you plug it in and it will boot for a few seconds and then the lightning bolt you see is the charge icon and then a red line in it means that charger is not compatable. Blackberry does make its own charger but there is a "pin" on the plug in that will tell it it is not the right one. Am I confusing you?

Sounds like the battery is completely drained. Remove and replace battery, and charge for a couple of hours with your AC charger. If it still does not fully charge, you may have a bad battery. Good Luck...

I have a blackberry bold 9000 and it does not turn on only the red light comes on and a battery with a lightning on it in the screen.

That symbol is normally used to imply a low state of battery charge which (if it has been charged) can mean that one cell in a multi-cell battery pack has failed and will require replacement.

My blackberry bold 9000 led stays red for a few seconds and then shows the charging icon then cycles back to the red light. It won't turn on.

It can be deduced from your problem that there is an error on the operating system of your bold 9000,I also use a bold 9000 and i experienced the some problem 2 wks ago,
This solution helped me out;
1.You have to do a hard reset on your bold,which means you have to remove the battery from your phone and re-insert it back after 10mins,

2.if the above solution doesn't work,it means you have to flash the entire ROM random operating memory of your phone,which requires the use of a particular software which can be got from any phone technician in your area.

Have a nice day.
