Pull the battery out and put it back in. See what it shows then.

Well could be alot of things. Sometime at can be an actual hardware problem with the battery itself, or the pin connectors on the device. Or it could also be software issues within the blackberry, whereas the application loader would be the way to resolve the issue.

I had a similar problem. I took the unit and the charger into the cingular store. It turned out the charger had failed. Unfortunately, Cingular doesn't cover the charger under their warranty so I had to buy a new one. Everything works just fine now.
