Default Blackberry Bold 9000 is having problems charging up...

Please Login to Remove!

Hi again, I just acquired a used blackberry bold 9000.
The seller that sold it to me said he put in a new battery and his dog chewed up his usb cable before the BB started charging.
He said he found this phone in a park at chicago illinois and took it up for repairs.
Anyway, I followed the guides that some people posted up that got their phones on and running.
Let me ask this, I just plugged in my BB 9000 to an official blackberry wall charger.
The red light came on for about 40 seconds and shut off and did not show a battery with a red x over it or a bolt.
How long should I give the phone time to respond before I let my phenom ii x6 try to access and charge it up ?
I had one minor success when trying to jumpstart the phone with my pc, it showed a bolt over the battery on a black screen with my pc, blackberry desktop 5 tried to charge it but lost the connection....
Any advice I should clearly follow properly ?

I'll be using my mini iphone until this BB 9000 is working correctly and fix up the cosmetic issues in 2 weeks.

First off, is the phone showing any signs of water ingress? Check the little white stickers inside the handset, and on the battery.

On your pc, what Operating system are you using? Make sure to have the BlackBerry USB drivers installed, as this sometimes helps where connection problems occur.

Hopefully these steps will get you a bit further forward.
