Default Blackberry's not charging

Please Login to Remove!

This this weekend my Blackberry 8300 stopped charging. I tried two other Blackberry chargers plus my car charger and nothing. When I plug in the charger the red light flashes on for 10 seconds and then goes off. The little battery charge screen indicator comes on and then nothing.

I would wonder if your battery has gone bad.

Well it is brand new but if they can still go bad I can probably switch with a friend and see. I will try that.

Try the battery swap and see if IT will also charge plugged to your charger.

It may be also the USB port that broke

Yeah look on the inside of the port and see if all 5 or 6 pins are still there.
