LEAVE it connected to the wall outlet charger (not the USB > PC charger).
Leave it connected for 24 hours... every 3-5 hours, with the charger STILL connected, press and hold the power button only, for about 20 seconds. Eventually it will boot on up, but first must reach a certain charge level.
You will see the blinking red and perhaps yellowish LED light, and perhaps a symbol on screen of "no battery". That means the battery is drained, but it must reach a certain charge before powering on.

Re: No charging of my playbook

You mean you had it plugged in the PlayBook upside down?

 

That's a certain good way to break the USB PIN in the PlayBook.

Take a bottle of red nail polish and place a red dot on the UP side of the USB plug so you ALWAYS can easily see it is plugged in the correct manner.
