Unhappy 8520 3G wont even turn on :(

Please Login to Remove!

went to look at my blackberry 8520 3G about 30 minutes ago and the screen was totally black, and it will no turn on. I know it isnt the charge because i had full charge and alo the led isnt flashing as it normally does when my battery has fully died, so i know this is not the problem.

I have taken and leftmy battery out for about 15 minutes and then put it back in to try and reboot , but with no joy.

I did drop my phone a few weeks ago and mark the screen, so maybe this could be a screen problem? but then surely my led would still be working and kypad backlight would still be on? this isnt the case. I have only had this blackberry for about 10 weeks, :(

Does anybody have any idea what had happened?

Did you try attaching the charge cable and see what happens - does the LED or screen light up.

If the battery is dead there is no power for the LED, it will not light up.

Blackberry batterys are LI type and if you let it go below 30% often it will not fully charge. You let it die often so it's time to replace it. Keep it fully charged and it will last longer.
