Blackberry Curve 8520 Wont Turn On
Hey, i have a blackberry curve that wont turn on,

It did have some water damage, about 2 years ago, but it has worked since, so that shouldnt be the problem, i used the rice trick and it was working (2 years ago)

2 days ago, i woke up and the screen was white, so i searched what was wrong, and they said take out the battery, i did and this is what it does now!

Welcome to the forums.

Water damage is most likely the culprit here. Given that it has worked for the past 2 years is impressive. However, it can take time for parts to corrode.

Do you have a backup of your data?

It is a long shot, but may be worth it. You could try these steps to try to get your device back in working order:
