    8700c not charging

    Advertisement



    Hello,
    My first post. Excuse me as I am new with the blackberry world but I need some direction. I got 8700c from fleabay last month. Few weeks back I put it washer by mistake. I dried it and few minutes if worked fine. Now when I charge it, the LED remains red and it looks like battery doesn't get charged. I replaced the battery with the same result. When I put the battery from my friend's phone, it works fine. Any idea what I can do? Any pointers is greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like the water damage is the issue. There must be a short on the main board. Looks like it's time to get a new BB,sorry. And try to keep this one dry

    Thanks for the reply. Funny thing is that it works perfectly when I use my friends charged battery. Do someone sell a stand-alone battery charger?

    Maybe you can switch batteries with your friend. I had a similar issue with a water damaged phone. A brand new batter fixed it. And yes there are charger stands with a slot to charge an extra battery. Try ebay.

    Re: 8700c not charging

    We have experienced this problem on fully drained batteries in the 8700c while charging with a wall charger. We found that performing a minimal charge from the PC (USB cable) first, then connecting to wall charger resolved the issue. For some reason a fully drained battery won't charge with certain wall chargers. Hope this helps!
