    All of the sudden today, my BB turned off and the red light came on. Every time I press a button, the red light comes on for a few seconds, then goes off. The screen stays black. I didn't drop my phone, get it wet, or anything, it just turned off on it's own. Is it dead?

    Thanks!

    The battery life was 95% if I had to put a percent on it. It's been charging since noon and nothing has changed. And I did take it out and put it back in before I charged it. I hope it's just a dead battery.

    Thanks!

    It sounds like the battery pull got it working again, to restate the obvious.

    As a newbie, it took me a bit to figure out what a battery pull meant in Blackberry terms. I know it's sounds pretty intuitive, but without a working phone, not explicit enough.

    1. Remove the back of the phone, exposing the battery.
    2. Plug in your charger (I don't know if this works with the USB cable....)
    3. With the red light lit, remove the battery
    4. After the red light goes out, replace the battery
    5. The red light should come back on and the phone should begin to charge. Wait for it, there may be a couple of seconds delay before the charging icon shows on the screen.


    That's what worked for me.

    Hey, the same thing happened to me. It's never happened before and I've had it for 2-ish years now, so I was at a loss with what to do because it never usually plays up. After finding this forum page, I tried what you suggested and it is now working after numerous battery pulls, so thank you. What I want to know is, is it likely to do it again in the near future ie. the next few hours/days/weeks? I just want to know if it is so I can be prepared. Thanks in advance!

    Oh, sorry for posting this on the wrong thread! I didn't notice that this was only for 8830s. I guess it will still work for my phone though.

    so is it the phone or the battery, I keep pulling the battery off and waiting for the charging image on the screen but it will not appear, and the lights keep blinking for 10 seconds and going out, so is it the battery needs replacing or the phone?

    hello
    im using the blackberry bold 9900. i used it for approximately 2 months or so now. i've read the forums and im going through the same problem. but mine is a little different. my phone at the start was fine later my battery life started to go lower it would charge properly and then before it got to half way it would switch off. or if ii battery pulled on a full battery for blackberry internet services my phone would switch back on and the battery would be really close to dead. id charge it 2 times a day. and soon it became worse where randomly it would switch off without the charger when fully charged and when id battery pull and put it back on it would reboot half way and switch off again, this would repeat. and now it just dont charge or switch on. but the LED flashes once then 2 seconds, later flash 3 times. with the battery in and without the battery while connected to the charger (via USB). is their any thing i can do to fix this problem or is it because of the battery or the phone alone. :/ :S

    thank you
