I just got a new Playbook 64gb. I plug the charger and power it on using the power button. After a small while, i got a black screen with "Blackberry Playbook". This text stays on the screen about 30 seconds. then the display goes black (i gues off).
After 5s, the playbook starts thid again and again... I did not see any animation or any desktop.
Is my PB dead or can I still rescue it?

At firstl i just shut it on and pluged the charger.
Now i shut the PB down and let it 2 hours on charge (the led has been blinking slowly grun/yellow). I tried again but same result. I fear i must send back the tablet to my resellers.... :-(

If it was charging you would see staedy red light for a while, maybe ten minutes, then yellow pulsing every few seconds, nthen when charged finally steady green. See any of that? If not, it's not charging.

I let it on charge the whole night. When I woke up, the led was green.
Unfortunatly, the PB stills cycles black / boot screen. I never got any animated startup nor desktop. :-(.

Two things are you using the wall charger...usb to usb does not generate enough power..you need the a/c to usb power cord and secondly, make sure the Blackberry Logo on the mini usb plug is facing up (not the usb logo) if not you may have damaged your mini usb plug and it wont charge
