Is my Bold bricked??
Is my Bold a brick??
Yesterday morning my phone showed the red battery outline, so I plugged it into my wall charger. After an hour the phone had turned itself off and didn't appear to be charging.
Battery takes a charge - tested in my wife's phone.
I battled all day yesterday trying to charge it and get it booted up. No luck. I finally tried wiping it and re-loading the OS. It did a few things - white screen when plugged into the wall charger - red light flashing twice before going out, etc. etc. When trying to over wright the OS, things would progress a certain amount and then the phone would shut off.
I left the battery out over night and this morning I re-loaded the os successfully, BUT........
Here at work, the phone will boot up - run for a few minutes flashing the low batt light - and then turn itself off - while plugged into my pc.
Well, I got it started with a good (full) battery - it runs for a few minutes - a line appears on the screen, there is a crackling noise, the screen goes white and the phone reboots.
The OS is fresh - so not sure what else, other than some sort of hardware problem it could be.
Anyway, bought a used 9700 for $75 last night and it's running now, happily.
