Default 8700g charging issue

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings!

Folks, I faced a strange issue with one of the 8700g's in my company. For some reason it charges fine from the PC, but if I try to charge it with an adapter through the electric socket, the charging icon appears on a screen and vanishes in like 3 seconds.
I tried to charge other Blackberries with the same adapter and they charged fine...
I found the similar topic on these forums, but in that case the issue was resoled by changing an adapter. I tried like 5 different adapters without success.
I will much appreciate any advices and suggestions.

Have you inspected the charging port on the phone closely? Should see 5 pins at the end of port on phone

I had an issue once sort of similar. I wasn't seeing the charge indicator on my 8700g when connected to the adaptor. Hard reset corrected it. I was away from computer (on travel) so have no idea what it would have done at the time on USB. So..... Have you tried pulling the battery?

And yes, the port has 5 pins.

Don't know that it would make a difference in this instance, but how about trying a different battery and see?

Other than that, hardware problem with BB device?

This might be a stupid question, but, all the times you have tried the different AC chargers, did you plug them into the same outlet?? have you tried other outlets?? I have seen problem with outlets in my own home with this before, not with BBs, but with other electronics....
