How do you resurrect a playbook that has no battery charge and will no longer accept a charge through the micro USB port?

Leave it plugged into the OEM charger for an hour. This will wake up a Playbook that has not seen a charge for a long time.

If the usb port will no longer take a charge then leaving it there til Christmas, or until blackberry get taken over whichever is the sooner, will not wake it up.

 

Buying a rapid charger with the magnetic plug is what is needed. You have 50% chance it willrecharge with with the rapid charger. If it will still not charge after 24hrs on there, it's another ex playbook pining for the fjords, bereft of life.
