I've searched through this and other forums and haven't been able to find a solution but my issue appears to be slightly different.
My 32gb unit is completely dead at this point. I use the wall charger, the red light will come on for about 10 seconds and then fade off. After that, the battery logo comes up with the lightning bolt and fades out. Once faded, the green light comes on for about 10-15 seconds and fades off. Finally the playbook logo comes up and stays solid on the screen with no other lights. I have left it at that stage overnight a couple of times and the moment I pull the power from the wall it dies and will not boot up.
Do I have any option short of returning this unit? Has this scenario happened to others? Let me know if you can help. Thanks.

Mine went a little different. When I plugged it into the wall charger, the red light would come on for about 15 seconds and then go out. I tried all the tricks (rebooting, stacked charging, charging overnight etc.) with no luck. Then I simply plugged it in until the red light went out. Then I disconnected the plug and then plugged it back in until the red light went out again. On the third try, the charge icon came up and then the green light came on and started charging. Don't know if that helps but it is something different to try. Good luck.
