Can anybody recommend tech/repair shop to have a look at my Blackberry Bold 9000. I think it is having a problem charging the battery.
I have tried a new battery, this worked fine for a day, then it went back to cycle of Red Light, then software loads to 50%, then back to Red Light, 50%, over and over again, whilst on mains or UPS charge.
So, I think the battery is losing power over time whilst not being re-charged ???? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Bigabyte come highly recommended by all that has used them.

Sorry I can't help with the problem, especially as it's not battery related.

Have you tried a full backup followed by a full restore to latest software etc?

Is it possible that the phone has any water ingress which is causing the battery to short, you might notice that the phone gets a bit warmer than usual. If everything else is working this "should" be a relatively simple fix.

If you mean that it doesn't charge at all (and that the light flashing is caused by the battery going flat) then it could be a faulty charger or charging socket. Both of these are, again, fairly simple jobs or you could get a Universal Battery Charger which charges your phone battery outside the phone for a fiver from the place recommended above, if nothing else this gets your phone back working again in as long as it takes to charge your battery, and as you have a spare you shouldn't be without your phone whilst it's charging.

It is possible that the phone has had water ingress, I got it, broken, through my ex work, not sure exactly what had happened to it. I've had it in a drawer for about 18 months, it wouldn't charge or boot at all, so I got a new battery, it then let me install BB Desktop yesterday and booted up OK. After a couple of hours it started going to the Red Light for about 20 secs, then getting 50% booted, then back to Red Light, etc.in a loop. Sometimes it crackles a bit when going thro this loop. It seems to have booted OK while the battery was initially charged, then gone into the loop a few hours later. It loops even when plugged into the mains and/or USB.
Could water ingress in the past be causing it not to charge the battery ? Would it be best to try bigabyte to get it fixed ?
Many thanks for your help by the way.

When my BB curve battery started draining unusually quickly, i discovered that when my young son was playing the games on the phone , he wasnt physically exiting the games , just pressing the red phone button to leave them , so some games and apps were running in the background. i went through all games and apps ,using the exit option , and since then , my battery has been ok.
