Brand New BlackBerry 8310, Dead, No life.
 
Hello

I bought this as faulty, it's Brand New (everything sealed in box) on eBay recently.

It's arrived today and everything seems fine.

The problem with it is that, it's dead, when you plug it in with the AC, there is no sign of life, no flickers, no red lights, nothing, I've put in a charged working BlackBerry battery and it's the same issue.

Is this a known problem?

Any advice?

Thanks!

I would contact the seller.

I would check this out too:

I bought it, knowing that it has this problem.

I was intending to fix it and keep it as a spare.

:) Thanks for the input.

If you pull the battery, SIM, and memory card, adn plug the phone in, so you get anything? If not, it sounds like (at the very least) a bad/fried power supply in the device.

British-Boy 04-01-2009 12:07 PM

I will try that and let you know. :)

How much would power supplies cost to repair?

Shaun 04-01-2009 12:14 PM

I am not entirely sure on price, or what parts can be purchased OEM, but you can get better info from HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center .

No luck, still no power. I think I'll just take it to a phone shop, hopefully they will know what to do with it.

Damn, this is frustrating!

Please check a few different outlets. I once plugged my phone into an outlet attached to an on-off switch at someone else's house. It happened to be in the "off" position, and I thought there was something wrong with my phone when it did not charge.

Thanks, I've tried that, but to no prevail.

British-Boy 04-01-2009 04:01 PM

Anyone else got any suggestions?

I'm going to take this into a BlackBerry specialist tomorrow, if possible.

Umm, yeah. I'd suggest that next time BEFORE you buy a totally dead BlackBerry on eBay that you FIRST try to find out what it costs to have one repaired. ;-)

Yes, that certainly sounds like a good idea. :)

Any Luck?
