    Won't charge??

    Advertisement



    I bought someone a pearl as a gift, I checked it when it was shipped, it turned on and all so I figured it was ok. She used it all day today, the battery finally went dead. Now this phone won't charge, it acts like it's going to for about 5 seconds, light comes on, and charging icon by the battery display on screen appears then it just stops. The light goes off and the icon disappears. I've tried 2 chargers so it's not that. Any other ideas?

    It doesn't sounds like cheating .

    Well 4 the batt U check using other batt , I feel batt is dead or over. If the probem is with batt, then u need to replace it.

    Best of Luck

    How long are you waiting on the charger are you waiting for it to recover from the low power shutdown. It might take up to 5 minutes or more on the charger before it awakes.

    It could be the battery, hopefully. I left it on overnight to see if that was the case, about the charger just taking a few minutes.. No luck with it. I guess i'll find someone with the same phone and swap batteries

    I have the EXACT same problem!!! I ended up having to send back my Blackberry to the manufacturer and after 10 weeks I got it back!

    And a ONE week later I have the same problem yet again!!

    Any resolution to this issue?
    Did the new battery help?

    Are you using the wall plug-in charger or USB through the computer? If USB through the computer I believe you have to install the desktop manager for the USB driver to be installed for charging to work.
