Hi Ladies n Gents,
I have weird case of drop n dead phone. My GF ... BlackBerry Curve forum
8300 curve dropped and won't Light up
Hi Ladies n Gents,
I have weird case of drop n dead phone. My GF drops her sister's BB 8300 curve n according to her, she dropped it quite hard. She said the phone went off n wouldn't go on anymore. I took the phone for the night n I'm looking at it now. I took off the battery n replaced it n the red light goes on n then off again. I waited for a few minutes, n tried calling the phone to see wat might happen n i was surprised when the phone started vibrating n i could answer the call. So apparently the phone is still on, but the lights on the keyboards n screen won't go on (just stays off). I plugged it to the PC n desktop manager recognizes it.
All in all, the phone is still alive but all lights are out. I guess the most important thing is the display so she can use the phone again but is there any way to revive the lights? Anybody every had the same issue? Pls Help
Hmmmm. Sounds like you've got a connection broken in there and, unfortunately, sounds like a problem for a repair shop IF they can fix it. I haven't heard of this one before. Anyone else have advice for aquaiuz?

I'd say, if he's comfortable with taking the phone apart, try checking the connections between the screen and main board, or look for a break in the board. If you're not comfortable, then i would send it in, if she has insurance.
