    So my friend gave me his blackberry Z 10 that he hasn't use in a while. When I put the battery in and put it to charge it turns on and off right away, it doesn't show anything on the screen only the red light shows and goes off again, what should I do?

    First, take the battery out, press and hold power button for 30 sec. Put the battery back in and see if that resets it. If not, try to connect the phone to a pc without the battery in and power it on (not sure that will work on z10). You could buy a new battery for $8 on Amazon to rule out the battery. If it still won't turn on (if it's bricked), you can download an OS 10.x autoloader file to a windows pc, start the update and connect the z10, then turn it on. Loading the update may fix what's wrong with the OS causing it to shutdown.
