Help Bold won't Turn On
i've had my bold for a week now, been keeping good care of it, no falls, no scratches everything is fine..
Tonight, I took the battery out of the phone without turning it off first.. to get the sim card out, and now it refuses to turn on..
i have taken the battery out, and put it back in and tried turning it on it doesnt budge..
i have also tried charging it, but nothing is happening!!! its been doing it for about 30 minutes

What happens if you connect it to your PC? does DM recognise it?BB History: 8700, 8300, 8310, 9000, 8900, 9700

try the following:
pull the battery
plug in the desktop charger (make sure DM is shut down)
the led should light up red. if yes then put the battery back in and let is sit for 10 mins before turning it back on.There are 10 types of people in the world: those that understand Binary, those that don't, and those that don't expect this signature to be in base 3.
hey guys thanks for all the great responses..
i left the battery out all night and went to bed and when i woke up and put it back in everything was back to normal... kinda odd but i'm definately going ot look into it..
thanks again for all of your responses

I have the same exact problem. After doing a hard reset, put the battery back in, but now it doesnt do anything. Just dead. Not even a red LED light. Tries using the application loader to reload the OS, but it wasnt detected by the computer. HEELLP....I'm so stressed out now. SHould I just do what Reza did, leave out the battery all night long? I'm crossing my fingers this will work.

I had a similar experience when I first got my bold. Turned out that the battery was completely drained. To the point that plugging in the charger for a min or two didn't charge it up enough to flick on.
I had to leave it charge for 5 or so mins before it came back on.
Turned out that the problem was a non BB charger was being used (my old HTC charger)...CrackBerry Rules

The same thing happened to me! I did a battery pull (battery was full) and now it won't turn on, no flashing red light when i plug it in to the blackberry wall charger or via USB.
Sounds like some people got it to start working by taking the battery out for a bit and it magically started working again.
Anyone figure out exactly what's going on???? I want my Bold to be working again! Thanks!

Don't Freak Out!
Steps (to be applied with patience):
1. Take your battery out.
2. Plug in your Blackberry Bold and wait (with the battery left out).
3. Leave your Bold like this until you see a sign on your screen that looks like a battery with a red line through it.
4. Now that you see the icon, put your battery back in and let it charge.
5. Your Blackberry Bold will turn back on by itself.
6. Let it charge until it is full without interruption!
Be patient during this process and while step 4 is happening, go and DO SOMETHING ELSE! Your Blackberry Bold might just need some privacy during this process (mine did).
