Default BB LED flashes, but doesn't turn on.

Please Login to Remove!

My tour won't turn it, the LED light flashes, but that's it.
Currently, it's not registered to a number because it had broken before, so I got a different phone. There was a JVM error, but I fixed it.. then suddenly one day it just turned off, and wouldn't turn back on.
I've read numerous tutorials and forums trying to get it to work. I read it's probably the software and tried fixing it, but it doesn't read my phone when I plug it into my USB. I've even tried the LoaderApplication, but it doesn't read it, still. I don't get the USB-PIN: UNKNOWN doesn't show.
It can't be the battery, because I put it in my boyfriends BB Storm and it was just a dead battery that needed charging.
Any ideas, this is frustrating, haha.
Thank you so much!

The problem your having is one I've never heard of. But, from how you've explained your problem it seems as if it is Software Related. Best thing I Recommend, Is to pull out the battery (Battery Pull). If that doesn't work, I Would suggest plugging your tour into your PC (Presuming it's been recognised) and perform any updates that maybe available.

Hope this Helps, Good Luck.

Well, the past few days I've tried plugging it into my USB, and it still doesn't recognize it. It just flashes.
The thing is.. I took my BF's battery from his BB and put it in my phone. It kept blinking even when it wasn't plugged into an outlet.. (MY battery has to be plugged in just so it'll flash)
Does this mean anything?
When I put MY battery in my BF's phone, it turns his phone on, but it's like a dead battery.
