    Battery Issues

    Advertisement



    When i am charging my battery, all i get is the red light coming on sporadically. i also get a picture of a battery with a lightning bolt thru it on the screen sometimes, is my phone dead? battery dead? I bought a reconditioned battery this morning and tried to charge it and that didnt work either. Please help.

    The battery with the bolt thru it is the symbol for a dead battery. If it is not charging even with the new battery then you my have a problem with the port.

    I've had that happen when I put the wrong battery in before. Put a battery in a curve from a pearl,not compatible. Maybe you might of got the wrong battery? I also know that when the battery is completely dead, you will have the battery w/ lightning bolt appear until it charges enough to at least power on. Hope that helps some.

    Do you have another charger? Or can you connect it to your PC with your USB cable? It really sounds like the port to me.if the light flashes when you are holding it there then it is probably trying to charge but I don't know for sure. Do you have insurance on the device or is it still under warranty?

    Learn something new every day. I didn't think you could change them out.

    Absolutely. It's like 5 bucks for the port,and they pretty much pop in and out pretty easy. Now if it were the storm,or the newer BB models - it gets a little more involved. They build em a bit stronger these days...lol
