| | BlackBerry Storm won't turn on/dead battery
Please Login to Remove!
I bought a near new storm (no scratches what so ever, he didn't even get to use it) off a friend of mine for $100AUD because it failed to work one day. Anyway he said it just wouldn't turn on. Sometimes when you put the charger in the red light will stay on for 5-10 seconds then thats it but I haven't that happen again.
Last night I was messing with it, plugged it into USB via PC and nothing until I mucked with. Pressing buttons (may have removed the battery) and the PC found it, red light was on and the white screen appeared with the battery and a lightning symbol. I was impatient and had to disconnect the thing, plugged it back in... nothing. Won't do it again, left it on charge over night (5hrs?) and a few hours via USB but still nothing.
Anyone have any ideas? I bought a new battery off eBay which will be here in a few days but until then I'd like to get it going.
