    Charging Problem

    I'm trying to charge my blackberry but its just got a solid red light on instead of the flashing green light, what could be going on?

    I took the battery out & put it back in but the same problem...the phone won't even turn on

    Hi,

    Please ensure you use the wall charger to charge the device for at least 30 minutes (assuming you havenít already done so) and then remove\insert the device battery. If the device still fails to start it would be best to contact Telstra and arrange a replacement under warranty.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Hi,
    Are you trying to charge from a car charger or USB cable via computer ? (Or are you using the OEM charger ?)

    Some people have miore luck removing the battery, plug it into the charger/usb & turning it on without the battery.

    If the charger doesn't work, try a USB into the PC, in case the charger is faulty.

    Probably run some tests with wall charger and USB cable. If none work, most likely mini usb port thingo on the handset is faulty
