First thing to do is to pop out the battery and then pop it back it.
Second thing to do is to plug it into the wall - not the USB/PC - and let it charge for a few hours.

Give that a shot; good luck.

Hi ,

My dad gave me his old black berry 7230 and he is using his new treo650. I have put this thing for charging thru entire night. The red light lits up during the charging. But damn thing wont turn on.

He was using it about 6 monthes ago and it was in working condition.
Today it came up only once and it turned itself off suddenly and never came back.

Any help would be DEEPLY appreciated.

A similar thing happened to me last week, however instead of staying lit red, the led would pulse red every 3 seconds or so (popping the battery out had no effect). It turned out that the OS had been fried - I just hooked it up to the pc and ran application loader and it immediately asked to reload the OS. After that, a quick restore and I was back in business.
