    Question Issues with used 7280

    Advertisement



    Ok so I was so excited, I got my first blackberry in the mail today... I bought it on ebay to see if I would like it enough to spend a lot of money on the upgraded version and to get used to it... But I can't get it to turn on and when I plug it in to charge it (I tried wall, car, and computer charging) the red LED lights up for about 3 seconds and goes out... On the cpu it made the connecting sound and disconnecting sound within 3 seconds so I assume it is just rejecting the charge for some reason. If anyone knows anything about this please let me know, I hope I didn't buy a piece of junk. The company has a guarantee policy and said it was tested and worked fine.

    Thanks

    Stacy

    Hmmm Stacy this does not sound good. To make sure it's a working device, charge it for an hour max. Then unplug it, take out the battery, put it back in and then report what happens here.

    Sounds like a bad battery or connection, might need to try a different battery.

    It just won't charge

    I am thinking it is the battery because it will not even begin to charge. It disconnects itself from the charger after about 3 seconds... I am going to try a different battery and if that works then I will keep it otherwise I am sending it back for my refund... it also said it was unlocked on the ebay listing... not so much. Anyone know a reputable place to unlock a 7280??
