As Jarviser said, yes. You must connect both the USB cable and the magnetic rapid charger.

Thank you. The Rapid/magnetic charger worked. It is charging and I don't have to buy a new tablet yet. YEAH!

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

I tried this - several times and it does not work.  I've been trying to charge my playbook since the battery dropped below 20%.  It is now at 13% and still going down.  I've plugged it into the charger over and over.  I've turned it off and tried the reboot thing over and over.  I've tried the main charger, I've tried the cable to computer thing.  I think I've tried everything but that charging light just won't go on.  I had the same problem with my first playbook - had to jump through all the support hoops and finally they said send it in to be fixed.  They actually sent me a new one just a few months ago.  And here I am with the same problem again.  I'm so angry and frustrated that I really just want to throw the thing out a window (and then drive over it with my car... and then send it back to the company!)  Anybody have something that actually works for this problem?  BTW I have a blackberry phone and never had a problem with it.

Are you sure you don't have a charger problem and not a Playbook problem?
