    I have the same problem sometimes with my phone, try taking out the battery and if it is for cingular take out the sim card and or memory cards you have, if you haven't done this, then do it. When you put the battery and sim card and memory card back in, it should turn on and work fine.

    If this doesn't fix it I have no solution/

    I am experiencing a similar problem with my Pearl. It seems that charging over USB to my computer is fine. But if I use the power adapter they supplied with the blackberry it will only recognise the charge for about 3 seconds then disappear.

    I know it cant be the battery because I have tried it in a colleagues phone and it works and charges fine. Is there any issue when changing your device to enable mass storage setting when connecting to the PC as this might affect power management???

    any suggestions welcome.

Sure sounds like a problem with your charging outlet. I recommend taking it to your service provider and having a technician run some tests only they can do.

Please let me know if this helps. Take care!

Chances are either the battery is fried. or the OS is nuked.

Take the battery out, plug the phone in and try to turn it on. If it powers on just fine, it's the battery. If not. The OS is nuked and needs to be replaced.

My AT&T Blackberry Curve does not charge anymore, is it the battery or the...


Hi.

Here a series of useful answers to common questions asked when an At&T Blackberry is not charging anymore.


2ca514a.jpg

1. My Blackberry is not charging anymore. Is it the battery or the charger?

Possible reasons are faulty battery, defective charger, bad contact on phone socket to charger.

When it is a charger problem, or a bad contact to charger, the phone will not detect that the battery charger is connected.

When the problem is the battery, usually you can see the charger beingdetected, and the charging line progressing, but the battery nevercharges.

The charger can also be tested using a Voltmeter. If the charge is in good working order, the Voltmeter will read a value within half volt from charger specifications.

2. Do batteries actually lose ability to work?

Yes they do, and the fault is not unusual.

3. How much will a new battery cost?

Most ordinary Li-Ion batteries for BB are sold at less than US$10. You can see a choice of sellers here: Blackberry Curve Battery
Ensure that the battery is compatible with your Blackberry model.

4. How much will a new charger cost?

Ensure that the charger is compatible with your Blackberry model.

5. Will AT&T service the phone?

They will do, providing that the phone is still under warranty. Newwireless devices like your BB carry a one-year warranty from date ofpurchase. Refurbished devices carry a ninety-day warranty from the dateof purchase. If the phone had been purchased in US, to make a warranty claim after the first 30 days from purchase, you can call At&T at1-800-801-1101.

If the phone warranty has expired, a good choice could be going to anAt&T licensed phone shop, and asking to test battery and chargeron the bench before buying a replacement battery.

Blackberry curve wont turn on. it died then i took it home and went to charge it and the red light comes on for about 2 seconds then nothing happens and i cant turn it on


Does the phone come on while plugged in? To me it seems that the battery is dead. If you feel the battery is fine then you must visit the BB Service Center.

Blackberry curve 8300 suddently died


Try somebody else's battery, if the problem persists, it's most likely a logic board issue. There are blackberry repair websites that show you how to do the replacement yourself, otherwise here is a service that can repair any Blackberry Bold, Storm, Pearl, Curve, 8800 for screen, lenses,
track balls, usb ports, waterdamage etc.
The website is: Blackberry Repair

My Blackberry Curve 8310 won't turn on


Slam the phone on a hard surface to get rid of dust in the connections. I suggest tile or cement.

Battery won't charge in phone.


Have you tried a different charger? If not I would suggest stopping by one of your cellular providers stores and having them plug it in to see if it works.
