Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

4 Answers

No battery symbol

This only happens sometimes:  this phone works pretty well, then sometimes when I plug it into its charger then jiggle it, or when I take the battery out, or sometimes just 'randomly,' the phone rejects its battery:  battery goes in, one long red blink, then white screen with a battery with a red line through it.  My solution so far has been to take out and put in the battery a thousand times or until an hourglass shows up, or to bang it against something, but the suspense of when this is going to happen is just killing me, so I wanted to know if someone else had the same problem, and a better solution!

Been searching for ages for a clever solution ... wow, banging on the desk worked, thanks v much! Trouble is, I banged my phone with the battery inserted, and although it now works, I've lost my photos. Think I should've banged the battery alone?

I had the same problem. Tried batteries that worked in other phones but they didn't work either.

I reinstalled the firmware and that worked. Heres the steps I took

1. Downloaded device software from t-mobile. Your provider should have this, probably on the blackberry site also.
2. Connect blackberry to PC through USB.
3. Ran install program

Everything came up. All data still intact.

Not even kidding, i threw my phone against the wall, at the request of hitting it very hard. the battery flew out of the phone, and now it works just fine. i tried everything, replacing the battery, plugging it into my computer to synch. nothing. the wall isn't even dented.

I have no suggestions, but feel your pain!!! :(

Turned off the tablet, unplugged the charger and kept the tablet off for about 30 minute to one hour, plugged in back the charger, then turn on the tablet. After that I you might see the tablet started charging. Good Luck.

well sorry about that but the only thing you can really do is call your carrier and get them to fix your phone with insurance and if you dont have that then your just gonna have to either bumb 1 from a friend or family memeber or a friend or just buy a new 1... i had this problem and i tryed 2 different batteries and it still did the same thing the only thing that work for me is because i got lucky is i bought a new charger and then i let it sit for 24 hours with out playing with it and the next day it worked fine so it might just be a shortage in your charger if you have a usb cord try to plug it in your computer and see what happens

Blackberry charge symbol appears but does not charge battery


are you using the charger that came with the BlackBerry?  cause sometimes that can make a difference.
otherwise you might just need to get a new charger.
and usually the wall chargers work the best.
i had a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and the same thing happened to mine.

Phone won't turn on at all


take the battery out then try again. If the battery isn't totally dead try turning the phone on and then plugging it in. It's happened to me before and sometimes it takes a few tries to get it to work but it should come on eventually.

My battery went dead this morning i charged it this evening and it is just showing a battery and timer wont switch on or charge??


from what I hear, you have either fully charged your battery or your battery is pretty much completely dead.

your options:

1. If it's completely dead and won't hold a charge it's time to purchase another battery, this happens from time to time so don't freak out about it.
2. If it's fully charged, try taking the battery completely out of the phone, and re-inserting it after a few minutes, sometimes cell phones need to be reset.
3. ensure that your charger is working properly, if its not getting juice to it neither is your phone.
4. try to dial your number just to see what happens to the phone.
5. if someone else u know has a charger like yours try to borrow theirs to charge your phone possibly ruling out a bad charger

Charging problems


have you tried your dads battery in your phone it sounds like the battery is dead if your charger works on your dads phone then you know it not the charger the chances are it is the battery it would only be the phone if it has been dropped or got wet if this hasnt happened then the problem is the battery if your dads battery is the same then try charging his batt through your phone that way you would know if it was phone or battery.

If you take the phone into any phone shop they will test the phone and battery for free for you they can try the battery and also try a new battery in your phone and they will tell you if it is phone or battery but from my experiance it is going to be the battery let me know how you get on ok
