Default Blackberry torch won't turn on!

Please Login to Remove!

Had my torch for just over a year now but today it froze so I tried to restart it by taking the battery out. When I put it back in and tried to turn it on nothing happened except the proximity LED light started to flash, light on for about 5 seconds then off for another 5 and so on.. tried charging it but still didn't work. any idea what's wrong wit it? thanks

Are you sure the battery is charged? do you get any display? Did you add any apps recently?

First guess is the battery is defective or the charger is not working. Try the data cable in a PC or use the AC power source.

second is the OS is corrupted or the BB is damaged if it was dropped or was wet.
