Did the 8520 ever get dropped or wet?
Did it work in the past?

More detail would help understand your problem and get you an answer. Do you let the battery go dead often? Are you sure the charger is working? Have you added any Apps and this started? These and the questions NJBlackBerry asked will help.

Actually doing that does work well if the battery is very depleted.
Some times you have to repeat that process about ten times if device has not been powered on in a long time

I wonder if this would resurrect an old 9330 I have. Red light comes on, but will not charge, much less turn on.
