Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

Dear All,

 

I have read the forum and did it all. What my playbook showed was a red light after we connected it to the charger. Then the red light went out and nothing.....

No startup, no power button pushing helped.

 

Then I read one of the knowledgebased articles and did the following:

Connect the playbook and see the red light. Once the red light goes out, disconnect and reconnect the charger again. (playbook doesnt charge if it is off)

Keep doing this, untill you see the battery marker and the yellow lights. THEN it is actually charging.

So, dont through it away and NEVER let the battery go down that much.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

I did what the forum suggested, I left it plugged in for a week.  I had no blinking lights or any indication the pb was working.  After that time period the pb rebooted and is working fine now.

 

Thank you!

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

Thank you, thank you!  But I had to hold the power button down for much longer than 20 secs, more like 40 before the re-boot began.  I had actually given up and let go of the power  button and after a couple  more secs, the red light went on and after a few more, the boot-up process began.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

Mine also just quit on me while I was using it. It died and I can't get it to do anything. Sadly I bought mine directly from Blackberry and it's 7 months old, so the original 90 day warranty is expired. I have no options :smileysad:. I wish there was a reset button or knew what had happened to the Playbook to cause this.

Randais,
The PlayBook has a one year warranty.
Connect it to the charger and leave it alone for several days. It will most likely reboot eventually. Google BLACKBERRY KNOWLEDGE BASE KB27705.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

Where does it say the Playbook has a one year warranty? Everything I've read on the site states 90 days. I even entered the serial number and Blackberry pulled up that support was not available. I have it plugged into the charger and am hoping for the best, but I'm skeptical. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

Well I checked my box and did not find that wording anywhere. I'm going to try leaving it on the charger for a day and see if I get ANYthing. I'm just very disappointed at this point.
