    BB 6510 Charging

    Advertisement



    Got a BB 6510 off of eBay, the unit looks brand new. When I plug it in the the USB port to charge it the status light comes on red for 3 seconds then goes out. There is no signs of charging and it will not power up. Does anyone know what the status light is indicating? Do I need to use a wall powered charger or is there a bigger problem?

    welcome to the stacks.
    not sure of that model, however the pearl should be the same.
    you need to load the desktop manager onto your PC in order to charge the BB. thats how it is on the pearl.
    the red light would most likely be trying to charge but batt is to low for the BB to turn on.
    try a wall charger or car and let it charge for a while, 30 min. then powerr up

    The reasoning Kayos gave sounds well reasonable.

    Turns out that all it took is the correct USB cable, and you don't need the desktop software rinning or installed.
