    8310 Won't Power Up

    Advertisement



    Hey I bought a used bb not the problem. No warranty is the problem. But I thought I'd come on here to see what if anything I could do to fix the phone if not ill do a keyboard swap.

    The phone has been fine since I got it.. it hasn't been dropped in any water. When you turn it on you see the red light as normal then it keeps starting back over. Stays on all over 5 seconds. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I can stop using it anytime...

    What do you mean by starting back over? Rebooting with hourglass after 5 seconds?

    Have you recently upgraded your operating system, added new apps or themes? This could also be as simple as a bad battery if you have an extra one I would try that first.

    It sounds like what happened to me after I upgraded my Operating system without wiping my phone first. You may have to wipe it and reinstall the Operating system.

    What DM are you using? What OS do you have?
    Thanks,

    Please refer to the following link for upgrade instructions, though I don't know how you'll be able to upgrade if it won't stay on:
