My phone just went off on its own. The LED shows for about five seconds on n off when i plug the phone to a wall charger. I have pulled the battery and reinserted but nothing changed. I charged it over night and the phone flickered on and off this morning the went off again to its off status.
The apple logo appears for 5 seconds then disappears for 10 then appears for five and so on. I can get it to the connect to iTunes screen but as soon as I unplug it from the wall it shuts off completely. A laptop with iTunes isn't enough to power it up.
When I hit the lock button, my screen turns off, but turns back on only 5-10 seconds after by itself and then stays on until the battery dies. It does stay off if I insert it into a Blackberry belt holster, so as long as I leave it there, it's fine, but I want to take it out and not have the battery drain so quickly.
The only way I can ensure the screen is off when not in the holster is to power off, but I need my phone to be on 24/7 for business.
I have discovered that some of my text messages are not being sent or received. Every text shows that it sends and shows a time within a few seconds. I would say I am 90% working fine, but important texts are falling through the cracks.Text messages I send with more than 160 characters auto blend into one message natively. Recipients are only receiving part #2.They never have received the first part on dozens of tries. Always the case from home and work. I'm connected to wifi at home and work. Oddly enough, I was able to disconnect from wifi and was able to send both parts of sms messages 4 out of 5 times. When i connected back to wifi, still only the 2nd part of the sms.A few of the regular sms messages that I confirmed didn't go through were more than 100 characters, but less than 160. So far, every small or low character count message has worked.
Didn't receive a couple of texts that I was able to verify were 100+ character texts. eems to be a larger message problem, but every picture I have sent has successfully gone through.Installed Go SMS tonight. Still had the issue when sending multipart texts that only text #2 came through.I spent quite a bit of time on the phone with Sprint today. We did a battery pull and he did a phone refresh remotely. I tried a test text while he was on the phone. I sent a 2 parter to my wife and it was received. I thought the problem was fixed, but the very next 2 part text only showed the 2nd part of the message. I have not been able to get a 2 parter to go through since.
When I plugged in my blackberry to the wall charger to charge, the indicator light will light up red for a few seconds then shut off, then it will light up again then shut off, keeps doing this, does this mean it is charging? I left it charging over night and tried to turn it on in the morning but it was still completely dead. Sometimes the charger has problems making a connection, and usually I can see when that is happening from the lightening bolt sign when the phone is on So I'm wondering if it was just because it wasn't making a connection before that it didn't charge and if the red light on and off indicates that it is charging or not?
my device does not turn on, the LED light turn on red for about 15 seconds and then off, the only thing I can see in the screen is the battery charging symbol when I plugged it in for about 3 min and then nothing, I try another battery and is not it.
I am having the same issue as covered in lots of threads before. when i try to turn my phone on (pluged in to the wall charger) it just shows the red led for about 10 seconds and switched to white screen with battery thunder bolt symbol in the middle for abotu 10 seconds and then it repeats over and over again. but my phone does something ive never seen talked abotu on here.
When my red led is on the phone is making this weird noise. kinda sounds like fan comin from the phone. and itll only make the noise on the second time around. any suggestion on the noise and what i can do???? i have gotten a new battery, tried the battery pull, and ive waited 2 days and tried again no luck.
Plugged my phone into the charger last night with everything working fine. This morning, the phone is dead. The red light blinks on and off every 10 seconds or so but, nothing else. Tried everything but, no life.
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 was using my phone perfectly fine and in working condition. Then i put it on charge over night. I woke up in the morning to find that my phone wouldn't turn on. When I tried charging it, the red light came on for about 5-10 seconds then turned off. My phone still didn't turn on. i need to use my bbm urgently! It has been like this for 2 whole days now and i need to use my phone!!
I've had my AT&T Blackberry Bold 9700 since November of 2009 and am just experiencing this problem. My device is set so the back light goes off after 20 seconds. Whenever I put it down or lock it, the back light goes off just as it should. But, within 5-10 minutes, it turns back on without provocation and won't shut off again until I unlock and re-lock the phone.
As you can imagine, this is killing my battery life. I've tried playing with the settings, but nothing seems to do the trick. I've rebooted several times and removed the battery twice, but neither has worked. Anyone encounter this issue and/or have any suggestions on how to fix it?
I baught my blackberry Bold 9900 this year (March 2012). I've been using it since then but recently it started developing problems like freezing and all. Last night the battery was around 30% (Enough to last couple of hours) the phone just freezed and won't turn on. It keeps flashing red light 3 times every 3 seconds.
I had an earlier post...that solution worked for a day or two.Now, BB won't charge at all.
-it appears that BB is draining the battery from a full charge battery after unplugging and powering on....w/out any use of unit. -the red LED light comes on after plugging via a/c charge. After about 10 seconds, the LED light goes out...and indication that it's not charging. -Battery is a new battery, and is completely dead. -overall, it appears that unit starts a charge, then just stop charging. -I have removed and reinstalled battery several times after a charge start...it will charge for
I just got my new Captivate and it is a very nice phone. I have one issue with it and wanted to know if it is normal or do I have a defective phone. No matter where i am and what type of light I am in (i.e sunlight,darkness etc) the back light for the 4 buttons below the screen (Home, Menu,Search and back) turns off after about 2-3 seconds which is very quickly. It comes back on if I touch the buttons or if I touch the screen. I see a backlight timer for the screen but not for the touch sensitive buttons. Is it normal that the backlight for the buttons goes out in 2-3 seconds? Of do I have a defect?
I took the battery out on my blackberry.The screen goes black and shows a red light in the top corner.When i turn it on it shows a white screen, with a black boxs in the centre that has a moving hand.Its been doing this for about ten hours, i've tried taking the battery out and sim but it hasnt helped.
I own a Sony Ericsson W580i and lately I am having problems with it.
The problem is as follows...
When I plugin the phone to charge it shows a red light and no matter how many hours I charge it the same thing happens. and when I try to switch on the phone it doesnt start.
Kindly let me know what could be a possible problem.As there is no SonyEricsson authorised service centre close to my place I showed the phone in a store and he said it might be a mother board problem.I dint leave the phone with that guy as I did not trust him. if it actually might be a mother board problem or is it jus a battery problem.I am planning to go to the service centre in a short while and want to get an idea as to what might possibly be wrong...
Once I take 9810 out of case, it takes 5-10 seconds to update current time and display new message if any. It also behaves similarly if it went into sleep mode and I press any button to bring it back to active mode. Sometimes hourglass is displayed and takes a while for this phone to become operational.This was not the case with 9800 or any other blackberries I had in past.Is it normal?
I have a Torch 9800 phone. Lately I have had issues with the phone dieing after a few seconds of looking at an app or taking a picture. My battery reads 98% and after looking at the app the phone shuts down in seconds as there is not enough power. Some times I can reboot the phone and it will show a high percentage then dies again. I have re installed the OS a few times now and have not added any apps. Is this the battery or the phone having issues? I do not want to waist money on a new battery if it is the phone because for the most part it keeps a charge only not when your using it for more than a phone.
My Torch is freezing up for a few seconds at a time and a small black square appears mid screen, with a clock hand whirring round. Then it 'un-freezes' and continues to work in a normal way. Until it freezes again!
I have a Blackberry Torch 9860 which has just started a problem with unlocking, you lock it on the top of handet and within seconds it unlocks itself again, is there a way of stopping it from unlocking the keypad? it always used to be ok until today
Have just got my new X6 and its great except that i am having problems with my connection to my bluetooth car kit. It connects fine and has paired with it but it seems to disconnecting every 25 seconds or so and then reconnecting 25 seconds later. Its driving me bananas cos each time it does it the radio cuts out. If i am on a call it seems to keep connection. I fell i may have missed a setting somewhere but cant find anything about this.
Torch 9860. Used it for 3 days.. My torch can't switch on, because when I put in battery red light on the top is always on and don't turn off. So reboot don't start and not possible to reinstall OS.How to make the red light turn off and let torch reboot?
On e-mails longer than a "screen" (or so) the text is cut off and a checkerboard background is displayed (see attached). This happens on all e-mail accounts (BES, gmail, etc). Trying More/More All/Get Plain Text have no affect.
I just bought a blackberry torch 9800 and in the process to unlock the phone I entered 10 incorrect codes. Right now the phone is locked and doesnt recognize any sim card. Please what should I do? The particulars of the phone are as follows:
I have a new torch from AT&T from the US (which was opened). I inserted the Sim from my bold but only get the H+ connection. On the Bold I get the 3G connection with the same Sim. What can be done to be able to my Torch on the Korean System?
The Torch will show 3G network when original AT&T (US) Sim is inserted.
I can only see the Gmail account in my calendar. I want to add other accounts in my clendar and use them. When I got to the calendar options I can only see the default one as my gmail and have no options to change it. I specially wanted to add the face book calendar but none of the other accounts are visible. get the other accounts to my calendar.
