Question about RIM BlackBerry 7280 Handheld

1 Answer

WHY WONT MY 7280 CHARGE OR TURN ON

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.

My blackberry curve 9300 wont turn on i left it on charge over night and their is still no sign of it turning on ive removed the battery serveral times and not once have i seen the red light, befor it...


Try this.

Plug your BB into the charger.

With it plugged in take the battery out.

Wait a minimum of two minutes then put the battery back in.

Let it charge for a minimum of an hour before touching any keys or the trackpad.

If it still won't charge consider replacing your battery.

My blackberry bold wont charge no light comes on just completely dead could it be a faulty battery


Does the red light come one when you plug it into a charger? if not, and your charger works on other phones, than you probably have a broken usb port. (check if it is loose). You're gonna have to disassemble the phone and repair the USB port : Blackberry Repair Guide.

Blabkberry wont charge or turn on.


That usually means dirty power. Make sure you are using a good cable to charge the phone, not all micro-usb chargers work...for example some of the motorola chargers. Make sure there isn't a short in the charger cable. See if the same problem occurs when you attach to the computer USB.

Hi there, i have a blackberry rim and cant turn it on, when i plug the cord in to charge it up the red light at the top flashes on for a second then the whole thing goes dead again....help plz and thanks...


It sounds like an issue with the battery. Check the battery is not warped and is genuine. Easiest option is replace the battery.

To make sure it is battery related, Try to charge via USB or another AV charger.

My blackberry pearl 8100 wont turn on


I have an answer for the 3-2 red light blink w/black screen. Remove the battery, hold the end call button and put the battery back in. The red light should stay on for a while now. Push and hold the call button and alternate with the end call button untill the hourglass shows. Allow some time to boot up. I stumbled upon this, so if this doesnt work, try simmilar procedrues. I did get mine to work. Good Luck, dont give up, it flashes that 3-2 code for a reason.
