Default 9000 won't function with battery inserted

Please Login to Remove!

EDIT: TL;DR: It's dead flat and won't charge; when the battery is out the red LED lights up when I plug it into the PC - when I put the battery in, the LED turns off and it disconnects.

Seems strange, I know. When I plug my 9000 into my computer with the battery inserted, the red LED does not light up. If I take out the battery, the LED comes on and the computer can communicate with it.

At first it did appear to be bricked, but after attempting to reinstall the OS (though failing), the PC is having no issues identifying and interfacing with the device. Thing is, as soon as I insert the battery, it turns off. I got this phone second-hand from a friend the other day, and from what I gather it worked fine, but had been sitting around in their house for at least a few days.

When I was reinstalling the OS, I followed this guide: (url snipped due to forum rules - Crackberry guide called "How to Reload the Operating System on a Nuked or Bricked BlackBerry")

It suggested that I re-insert the battery during the process so that the software doesn't fail to connect. Clearly, I can't oblige that request, as when I do, the device loses all connection and the LED goes off. I proceeded with the install process, and when it failed, I cancelled. Since then, the device hasn't been disconnecting and reconnecting like a bricked device would (without the battery in), but I don't believe the OS is installed properly either.

I've tried just about every solution I can find, but no-one else seems to have this issue.

It's worth noting that the day I got it, I had it plugged into my PC for about 10 hours (PC powered on, of course) with the battery in, and nothing happened. The red LED did not turn on, and the device didn't seem to charge at all.

If you've got any idea what the problem might be, I'd certainly thank you to hear it. I won't be able to get a replacement or anything as it was second-hand (unlocked), so that's not really a solution.

Thanks heaps.
