Keep charging, you are on a good path... keep charging.

Every few hours, press and hold the power button alone, for 20 seconds.

 

Use the wall outlet OEM charger.

I use it. What shell  I do if it doesnt help?

Looks like you suggest to dedicate life trying to turn it on. It should help me, not make life more difficult.

 

Best Regards

Sorry, no I don't suggest that.

I suggest that you be aware of the battery level and don't allow it to deeply drain.

 

Good luck.

How much it cost? I am not really about waste some more money. If I could try one and find out it works, I would definitely buy one.

I don't know how much it costs where you are, I can get them on Amazon in the US for $18USD.

You might check around locally.

Re: My Play book doesn't turn on and seems like not charging

Is were any other solution? Or maybe it is time to give up? Because I have tried to charge it in different ways. I have to say I am very disappointed in what tablet it is very low quality one. 

Even if you as a customer technical support service try your best to be nice, it doesn't make product better.
