    It could be that you've damaged a component on the main circuit board while trying to get the old battery off.

    It wouldn't be the first time that's happened. I've got a 720 that a friend managed to muck up while doing a battery change. It still runs, but none of the Bluetooth works any more. I can see the component he broke, but haven't ever got round to trying to fix it.

    But hopefully, it's something less serious.
    Have you tried working through the two guides I posted in the "articles" section?
