BB Bold :: 9000 Wont Turn On Just A Red Light Flashing
Dec 20, 2011
i have the blackberry 9000 bold.my phone last night died and since then i have been charging it.but the red light keeps flashing and thats it, wont turn on. i pulled the battery out a few times but still no help just the red light and thats it
Yesterday I was waiting for an important call but needed a shower so I took my phone into the bathroom and put it in a dry safe place where I would hear it ring if need be. It did so I quickly jumped out of the shower, dried hands and answered a message. Few minutes later when back at my desk at home I realized the bold was behaving weird, key presses were not doing the right function, i.e. a press of the back key brought up jk or other letters on the screen etc.
It did not sustain water damage, at worst my hands were merely damp when used so I just figured pop it down for a while and let it 'dry' (it wasn't wet but you know what I mean, its all I could think of) picked it up maybe 15 minutes later and it appeared to have died. Now, its 15 months old (and was a refurbished handset direct from 02 when I got it so its had a hard life) its been bumped, and not long after I got it I broke the screen (LCD bleed) so I had it repaired which forfeited the warranty, also the trackball has been a constant nightmare to me, it stops working in one or more direction regularly.
I've found the solution to this to be to clean the trackball gently with a q-tip dipped in clear alcohol, after some time this usually works, but a couple of months ago I could not get this to work at all so after 2 weeks of a phone that would not scroll left I had the trackball replaced. I now had issues with the trackball not selecting when I push down but this is got around by using the return key or it does sometimes work if you push hard. So, with this new flashing red light failure I took it back to the place that replaced the screen. They kept it for 24 hours and when I went back to collect it they said it was a component failure and beyond economic repair.
Quite truthfully though I got the impression that they actually just couldn't be bothered as it was a hard job. Came home and started researching, other posts I have read lead me to believe that if the LED comes on in any way all is not lost. My computer does not recognize the phone when I try and connect it via USB, although just now I tried again and windows acknowledged that a device had just been plugged in, but the blackberry software still did not detect anything. What can I try now? I am not tech savvy so it will need to be clearly laid out for idiots.
Yesterday, my BB stopped working, so I took out my battery, in order to make it start again, which it didn't. The screen stays black and the red light keeps flashing, always 4 times, then a few seconds pass by and then it flashes once again 4 times and again and again...
i have may bold 9000 for awhile now but all of a sudden it does not turn on any more. screen blank and the LED light flashing four times. i cannot wipe the phone because i cannot access my bold via the USB port. i'm geting frustrated and i dont know what to do.
i bought a bold second hand ages ago and it was working fine until one night when i came in to find my phone switched off with 4 shortish/medium flashing red lights in a sequence, hasnt been dropped or waterdamaged and i had no apps on it and the stock os as i only need it for emails and texts. i cant get it to be recognised by the computer and i know the wire isnt faulty as i borrowed my friends 7230 wire (mini usb is the same for both models) and her 7230 and her husbands 9000 is recognised with and without the battery by my pc and hers.ive tried the following:1. battery pull - 1 long red light then the continuous four medium flashes over and over, same when i plug it into a pc (no red light or battery icon at all when plugged in without a battery)2. using desktop manager - nothing happens no device detected3. using the jl_cmder - no device detected4. using apploader by itself - no device detected/ no way to get past the usb/com port screen as the 'next' button is greyed out5. using apploader through command /nojvm - no device detected/no way to get past the usb/com port screen6. quickly switching phones with my friend when her phone is recognised without a battery and a update is prompted, it sort of works by letting me choose the os but then says no device detected
I recently upgraded my OS from 4.6 to 5.0 and everything is going well except, I don't know why my Bold 9000's screen light will NOT turn off while it is in it's cradle charging. I must be messing up on a certain setting It used to turn off for the night while charging.
I initially charged my phone still I got 2-3 battery bar. Since its not fully charged yet I left if overnight. When I woke up it was totally dead. No signs of life. Tried taking out the battery and put it back in after few mins still wont work. Connected to it to my pc same thing, wont work. Tried to hold down the power button several still not working
Phone turned itself off.Tryed plugging it into a wall charger and laptop usb cable to charge, but each time the red time stay constant for about a minute and then it changes to flashing four times quickly then a short pause and then flashing four times again (and it just repeats this over and over again.)
My 9000 will not turn on. The red indicator light comes on and stays on for approx 1 minute. The screen then switches to white battery with a red "X" through it. I have tried other batteries that were verified to be good with the same results. I have tried other wall chagers with the same results.
I have repeatedly left the phone on charge for several hours, removed the battery and replaced it after a few moments with the same results.
This issue started after the battery became very depleted after leaving the phone on bedside mode overnight. The phone had been operating without any issues up until this point. It is approx 2 1/2 years old.
All my contacts are on the phone and have not been backed up or saved on the sim card.
Okay so my blackberry curve 3G is relatively new, around 10 months. And today it was working fine, decent charge on the battery, when it decided to crash. I left it alone, and it still wouldnt respond. So i took the battery out, left it for 5 minutes, and put it back in. Usually, it automatically starts up, but this time there was no response. When i tried to turn it on, the screen stayed black, but the light in the corner came on red, for roughly 10 seconds, then turned off, and began to flash for around 3 seconds, every 10 seconds. ive tried plugging it into the computer, however it cannot pick it up, and if i try to install older software (downgrade it, which it recommends to do) it fails just before the end, every time.
I have a Blackberry Curve 8520 and yesterday update Blackberry Apps World, it popped up saying it had to be rebooted so i did this, the phone has not turned on since and has a red flashing light?!! It also will not connect to any computer, the computer will not acknowledge a connecton!
I have charged it all night, pulled the battery, tried a new battery!
I have a curve 8900 that won't turn of suddenly after I got the battery out and then put it back.The red light is flashing and the screen is black. It is also can not connect to the BB Desktop. When I tried to update the phone to be able to connect it the update is stick when it is trying to initialize the phone.
My Galaxy S6 is not turning on at all. The LED light is blinking yellow-orange and I'm confused. It is charging, and it still won't turn on. I searched up some solutions and they were talking about taking out the battery, but there is no removable backing on the S6.
I was checking my phone one morning when it asked me to update, after that a message popped up saying that for the next update the phone had to be turned off for about 5 minutes. It never turned on again after that.I already posted a discussion notice about it not turning and the wonderful team member helped me and told me to flash my phone and try the updater. I've done both now and my phone is yet to turn on.I believe the flashing must of done something as now the LED light on the power button flashes red when I hold down it. But it still does not turn on.This has been really frustrating and the problem still continues to go on.Now when I try pc companion update service and hold the back button and connect the phone my PC doesn't recognize the device. Same message pops up if I just plug my phone in normally.
*I've been using the phone 2-3 months before this happened *I bought it online and cannot return *I really need help.
Put my sim free s6 on charge last night (wireless) as i always do and when i woke up the green led was flashing quite fast.
I went to wake the phone up using home button and nothing, nothing from powerbutton either. Tried holding down powerbutton and have also tried charging manually but still nothing. What was strange also was that i did not get any charging sound when i inserted the cable to try an charge it.
I am pretty sure its charged though...just will not turn on.
blackberry curve wont turn back on, was reintalling twitter then it said reboot so i did and not wont turn back on, just a flashing red light. tried taking battery out and leaving for an hour or so, also left charging but still nothing.
My sony Xperia z3 has the notification light flashing blue, but the screen wont turn on. Ive tried plugging the charger in, using the wireless charger, I even had ny husband call my phone and the screen never lit up and the phone never rang. Ive held down the power button, ive held the power and vol up button and still nothing.
Sony xperia s not turning on, only green notification light blinking? - The phone was on the charge throughout the night, in the morning phone`s ot switching ON, despite of pressing the power button for some time.
My phone phone turn off by itself about 3 hrs ago. It will not turn back on, the icd light is flashing red. Seems like to me it's flashing 2 longer flashes then 2 small one straight away. Continuously repeats this with 20/30 seconds between each. I have tried plugging it into my laptop but is not connected.
so my led light keeps flashing even after i open up and reply to a bbm convo, it's happened on my curve 8900, bold 9000 and now my 9700, and it's only with bbm convo's. in order to get rid of the light i have to mark convo as unread then open it and it will go away, im sick of doing this, any insight?
I got a blackberry 9900 no less than 2 days ago, I havent dropped it or wet it or anything it is in perfect condontion. I left it to charge last night around 11 and woke up at 6 and it will not turn on at all the only thing that happens is the LED light keep flashing red every 30 seconds, i have tried taking out the battery and putting it back, i have also tried leaving it to charge and plugging it into my computer
I bought my blackberry myself last february brand new off of ebay, had no problems until a couple of days ago.I took my battery in and out to use when needed as i was saving the charge, but when i tried to turn the phone on once more, nothing would happen and the phones signal light jus continually flashes red.I've tried taking everything out n reboosting, and ive tried connecting it to the computer but as the screen dont come on i have no way of connecting it.
