Question about RIM BlackBerry 7280 Handheld
When i plug my blackberry into the charger the red light on the top flashes for on and off about 3 times for 4 seconds and then goes off. When the light stops a little picture in the top right of the screen goes on with a battery and a lightning bolt. Does this mean its charging? If it does why cant i turn it on?
I've tried charging it through a home and car charger and also through the computer
The red light indicates its charging. My guess is that the battery is dead and will nto hold a charge. This is an older model phone and the lives on the batteries is 1-3 years at most.

Tips for a great answer:
JUMP STARTING A BLACKBERRY
1. Plug wall charger into wall and then plug into blackberry
2. Take off back cover and pull the battery out (while it is plugged in still)
3. Wait 30 seconds. The red LED may remain on (tech said it didn't matter).
4. Put the battery back in and wait about 5-10 seconds and it'll begin to boot up (white screen with clock icon).
