    Guys, need ur help!

    So i've had my bold for 2 years (bought @ sprint, used in the States/abroad).
    Been updating the OS every now and then via DM only (now leaks or anything).. not even sure which version i was on.
    No new apps installed recently (*insert a joke about BB apps here*).

    Looked it up in the forum but it seems the solutions are for bricked (i.e - screen shows something!) situations.
    Mine doesn't even show the battery+bolt thing i read some ppl had.

    **Tried to switch chargers/battery pull/connect to PC - no result.

    Any ideas? the device is 2 yrs old but it's been kept well enough.. i mean seriously, to die like that..
    Idea/Solutions will be appriciated!

    Do you have a spare battery to ensure it isn't a failed one? If you were using the original battery, the internal circuits may have failed, and it won't allow things to work.

    BergerKing - close enough!
    Just got back from the lab, it seems there was something wrong with the USB port (which happens to be the charging port these days..).
    got it replaced. back online.

    Sometimes it's purely coincidental, not bricking or anything

    Haha well if it were me ... I would consider buying a new one. BB10 is too drastically different and it sucks up data like a b!tch, plus it is not fully compatible with the PlayBook.
