    Default Help Bold won't Turn On

    hey all,

    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

    Help Please!

    hmmm, doesn't sound like you can do anything about that, my recommendation carry it back to your carrier and replace it.

    What happens if you connect it to your PC? does DM recognise it?

    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.

    Default Bold Dead

    Hi there,
    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)...

    If you dont get a red light at all, call Rogers. They'll replace your Bold (with a refurbished one).

    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!

    I had exactly the same problem. Tried battery pull. plugged it to computer, removed battery and plugged in charger no red light. Left it overnight with battery out as some users said. By this time I was angry and frustrated at the same time. Took it to work and just left it there and i kept trying these things throughout the day cause I really dont want a refurbished Bold. Then Around 5pm it just came on.

    Does anyone have any idea why this is happening to Bold's? Never had this issue with my 8800
    I will die without my blackberry as it is LIFE

    Default 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).
