Default Can't turn on my torch!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Was camping this past weekend, Friday until Sunday. Sunday morning my blackberry torch died, Sunday night I start charging it. Today is Monday, it won't turn on.
Both red lights turn on when it's plugged in and I try to turn it on then the one on the right goes out and it's not turned on. The one on the left is always on if it's plugged in and not on if it's unplugged and the red light on the right turns on for about 20 seconds when I try and turn it on unplugged then goes out again and nothing else happens. Can anyone please tell me what's going on with it?!

Thanks so much!!

Did the Blackberry get wet or damp? Sounds like water damage.

Nope, and the water damage sticker is still the same as it was before.
But thank you.

Sounds like the battery ran down too low and now it doesn't want to charge. Try pulling the battery, plugging the BB into your charger, and then re-inserting the battery to see if it will charge. You may have to leave it charging overnight if the battery was run down completely. New batteries hate to be run down below 20%. It can damage/ruin them. You can test this by going to a Rogers store and borrowing a battery for a couple minutes. Put another battery in and see if the BlackBerry starts.
