    Afternoon all,

    I have just been given a blackberry 8800.

    I dont have the charger but i do have the USB cable.

    I have had it charging now for about 30mins and the red light is showing (which i guess means charging)
    But when i press the power button nothing is working?

    Does this mean i may have a broken Blackberry?

    I read a thread the other day that said if you do not have the desk top manager installed on your PC, your BB wouldnt charge correctly, maybe whats wrong, maybe a totally dead battery

    yeah but in a pinch it works, especially right now when he doesnt have a charger. Youre right though, it would take all night.

    The problem is probably the lack of the Desktop Manager software on your computer. The red light does indicate charging but it will not actually charge without the software.

    You can download the DM though if you don't have it.

    No...That would be like trying to install Windows on a Mac (without Parallels or Boot Camp of course...haha).
