HI. The red line is an indication of a defective battery. This defective cell cannot hold a charge strong enough to power your phone properly. The necessary actions are to replace the battery with a new one. This will correct the issue.

    • I would suggest to remove the mem card and try a soft reset before replacing the battery. It is possible that this is a software fault and you can administer a soft reset to correct it. Be sure to remove the mem card before you preform the soft reset. If that does not help, replace the battery as directed above.

    Ok, remove the mem card and try the soft reset.

    After you initiate the soft reset with the mem card out, phone should shutdown. once it is shutdown; Remove the battery and put it back in for 1 minute and restart the phone without the mem card installed.

    Dose this version have an installable memory card you can remove?

    If your memory is integrated and not removable, don't worry about it. If you can remove the memory card, then remove it before initiating the soft reset.

    Basically, you have replaced the battery. This will isolate the culprit as being the OS or an hardware issue. The program is not recognizing the battery at all. This could be bad battery contacts ro a failed OS/Hardware. You can isolate by initiating the soft reset and taking out the battery for a minute when the phone shuts down. After one minutes passes, reinsert the battery and restart the phone. If you experience the same results as before after the soft reset; kindly return the unit to the provider for service. The phone will need to either be reprogrammed or replaced, due to hardware failure.

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?

I dropped my blackberry bold and screen is white with red line

That means no battery, your lucky. Just go to a phone place and try a new battery. I am assuming you already took the battery out and tried reinserting it. Does the battery have red xx's on the bottom, if so it probably fell on grass and the moisture got to the battery some how.

The tv is showing red lines on the screen.

These are retrace lines. The screen on the red tube is turned up too high. Inside the set there are 6 knobs. 3 for focus & 3 for screen. Turn down the red screen until lines are gone. These knobs are usually found by pulling of the front panel.

Screen shows battery with a red line through it

This usually means the bb and battery got a little wet or has other issues. Try these solutions in order. They go from easisest to hardest. NOTE: If you have an insurance policy on the bb probably best just to take it in.

1. Remove the back cover. Remove the battery and the SIM card. Wait 30 seconds. Replace SIM, battery and back cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

2. If that doesn't work, allow the bb to remain unplugged but ON for about 24 hours to drain the battery. Remove back cover and battery. Allow battery and opened bb to sit in a dry environment for 24 - 36 hours. Relace battery and cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

3. If that fails retry step 2 but allow battery to FULLY drain then dry out again.

4. Take in.

White screen with red and blue lines

Try removing the battery for a few seconds and see if that clears up the issue.

If it does, be aware that it's most likely a temporary fix. You'll want to go through the phone and clear out some of the memory (saved text message, call log, and even pictures if there are a lot of them). You might want to consider stopping in at your carrier's local store and getting the software flashed as well.
