My mom bought a broken blackberry off a friend who figured it was beyond repair and gave it to me to see if I could find a way to make it work again.
Now, I just took it to a cellphone repair place, and they replaced the charging port for me (it was badly taken care of). Apparently the phone is a bit banged up on the inside, so ... :[
However, when I plug it in, the red light comes on for about oh, 10-20 seconds, and it goes off. After that, the screen pops up with a dead-battery image, and it promptly goes off again, appearing to take no charge.
When I take the battery out, it does the same thing, however the screen that pops up says it's partially charged (??). I figure the thing is perhaps dead beyond repair, and while I am going to take it back tomorrow to the repair center to see if there's any other trouble shooting that can be done, I'd like to see if there's anyone here who knows if this is worth salvaging without replacing everything. Or, if there is a diagnostic pattern.
Also, the blackberry is not recognized by the computer. I hope the repair center has a battery I can test it with, because I do not know anyone with a blackberry to help me test it. :[
Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
