    Hello. My BB was red battery already when my friend borrowed it and took a picture w/ a flash using "Camera +" app. After the flash, my phone turned off and I assumed the battery was drained. I charged it, and the red light showed for about 15 sec. Afterwhich, the phone displayed a red x battery icon. I tried to charge it on my PC, and the same thing happened. Been searching for answers here, and I found nothing.

    I don't have a friend who also have BB so I havent tried inserting another battery.

    EDIT: I tried inserting a paper in the battery, and it worked. But after few minutes, it's not charging anymore(the one with lightning sign) instead it shows full battery(the plug icon), and switched off right after it, tried it for the second time, but whenever I touch the battery, it turns off and returns to red x battery.

    Is it the BB, battery or OS?
    Maybe it is about the hardware because it shuts down when battery is touched? Or battery? cause it was completely drained? Ohh help me please. Thanks!

    Welcome to CrackBerry!

    Couple things to try....plug the phone into charge and leave it for awhile. If the battery is completely drained, it will take awhile for it to recharge back.

    If that doesn't work, try a different battery. You can order from CB, or Amazon or eBay.

    Last try reinstalling the OS.
