Blackberry will not turn on, I just get a red light

I dropped my blackberry and broke my screen, the phone worked still but I could not see anything on the screen, I replaced the screen with a new one and when I put the phone back together and put the battery in I just got a red light for about 3 seconds and nothing else happened, just a black screen.

    Hi everyone, I have the same issue like y'all have. I think I have found the problem. I had my first BB for the last 6 month precise :-). I think BB is a nice device, It came as brand new, never use, And it came with accessory. Last December after returning home from the train trip, My BB shut off itself without warning or nothing, and the led blink twice. or sometime it said "prefetch exception reset" or JVM error 203 and JVM error 507, I tried many way to get this fixed, and nothing happend, even though, I have tried to find many way to get it fixed, even thought tried to find it online for solution, Nothing happened. One day ,I put my BB next to Air Condition duct for 10 minutes, put the battery back on, and to my suprise, it came back to a life, but for a temporary time, it went dead, so , I tried the A/C method again, and it did work again. But it went dead on room temperature. So u guys , try that A/C method by taking the battery out and place your BB next to A/C vent and wait for 10 minute and put battery back in again and see if it works on you. if the method has something to do with room temperature, I had like to hear it from you guys if you can find the way on how it works again, was the heat sink in BB missing or what? Warm regards, Damian

This happened with my first blackberry and it never turned back on guess what softwar glitch it was never goig to work again so i got a new one the second one started having issues within a month and eventually got to the point where i couldnt wifi it would turn off on me for no reason tell me i had no service when i should have hang up on people freeze and simply sucked took it in to get it fixed guess what another software glitch that one went to blackberry heaven and i got another one this one is only 1 month old has all updated software and hey guess what no issues at all i suppose every phone has bugs in it to begin with look the aple iphone blew up when it first came out until they fixed the issues with it.

if your on a plan ur under warranty with blackberry take it back and there policy basically replaces the phone.

good luck

I had this problem today. It was the battery. I replaced the battery and the phone was fine. It did take a while to boot up, small back square with a second hand going clock wise. I also charged the old battery and now that works fine also. It did take a while to charge the old battery, ~half and hour.

This seems to be an on going fault with BB 8100 phones. The internet is full of people with dead ones with black screens and flashing red lights.

My guess is they are stuffed when they get to this point, Its my last BB, here comes an iphone!!!

I tried the cooling off method and it did not work for me. I still get a blank screen and the red flashing light. This is real annoying.

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?

Blackberry 8900 red light on but doens't work


Take it to a cell phone place and let them try a new battery.. My wife was talking on hers in a light drizzle, it shorted everything out one tiny tiny drop. The red light came on, never to work again, once the screen shorts out for a split second it is dead.If the battery shows red x's on the bottom or behind the battery you find a red x you can be sure the screen is shorted out.

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.

Doesn't turn on, Red LED light stays lit


Try restoring the blackberry using the blackberry firmware update utility, if the problem persists, it's 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
