Try this:

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).

Bb bold wont charge


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Have you tried plugging the BlackBerry is different outlets or tried a different USB cord?

Does the BlackBerry show a charging symbol or is the LED flashing red or green?

I look forward to your reply.

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 have a blackberry bold 9000 and it wont turn on, every time i charge it the red LED light comes on for 30-35 seconds then it just start blinking but it never turns on


You might want to clean the contacts on your charger and BB for proper contact during charging.
Afterwards, connect to your charger, if you are charging it on a PC ensure you connect your charger to a USB at the rear of your PC. Your BB will try to power on itself once it has enough power to. Otherwise power it on after about an hour.

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.

Take the battery out and start the blackberry desktop manager. The blackberry can be restored in this condition. Just search for restoring bb to factory settings on the web. Here is an Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair.

Blackberry bold suddenly shut down


Lots of battery issues with the Bold. Try taking the battery out, keeping it out and connecting to PC with USB. Do any lights come on? Red light should appear. Put battery in while connected to USB.

Another fix that I found for a friend-leave the battery out of the unit for a day-put it in and plug in power cord or USB. It worked.
