| | Bold 9000 - Will not turn on...
Please Login to Remove!
So Ive been to this forum before and finally decided to sign up since I am having an issue with my Bold.
I saw that there was another thread about a Bold not turning on but my circumstances are a bit different so I didnt want to populate that one with my problem as well it is a bit different.
I had forgotten to charge my bold over the weekend and by noon on sunday the battery was low to the point the radio was off. I was headed out so I couldnt leave the unit charging at home, luckily I have a car charger. So I plugged the unit in the car charger and left it as I went out and did my thing. 5 hours later when I return to my car, the unit has not charged, even a bar, but the radio is at least on now. So I figure, alright, the battery has some juice so I will just do the good old battery pull. Once I do that the unit obviously turns off. Then when I put the battery back in, nothing. Not even the red LED absolutely no activity from the unit.
I have 2 bolds, 1 from work and one personal. I use my personal unit with the work sim and my personal sim with the work unit. I also have 2 different OSs running on the units. One is running Rogers standard 4.6 and my personal unit is running 5.0.681. The unit that is running 5.0.681 is the unit that doesnt turn on. So I charged the battery fully in the 4.6 unit and tried to put it into my 5.0 unit and nothing. Still no red LED no activity at all. I took the unit apart, checked to see if I can see anything noticeably wrong and nothing.
So the short is Im at a loss and really dont want to spend money on replacing my unit since it is out of warranty and then Id have to go through the trouble of getting my contacts back and such.
Any help or ideas is appreciated.
