    One of these two procedures should help you. I recommend you try the first one first, as it is probably a little simpler.

    i know how to fix it, you have to recover the blackberry in app loader but i have a feeling you dont have desktop manager installed on your PC

    To me this sounds like a new bb user. And the white screen with black clock to him is something new.

    My first berry, I thought the same thing. I was like "OMG why isn't it coming on!?"

    I ended up putting the phone down oneside. When I checked it back a couple hours later, it was on

    To the OP, just wait. Eventually it will come on.

    This is the first blackberry I have ever had and I have left it on charge since it wont turn on.
    When I put the blackberry disc in my laptop I connected the wire from my blackberry to my laptop, a picture of the battery came up with a lightning strike through the middle and then it wont turn on.
    I have left my phone since because I dont know what to do.

    If this helps you or know what to do please comment back
