    Have you tried pulling the battery?

    The red light usually flashes for me when I've set my BB down on the table too hard, and it knocks the battery loose, and reboots the phone on me.

    Sometimes you need to re-seat the battery, and after that it can take 2 or 3 minutes for the BlackBerry to boot back up again. If it isn't at least to a white screen with an hourglass after 5 minutes, something more serious may be wrong.

    Are you quite sure you have a charged battery in the device? What happens when you connect to a charger?
