Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

I have tried the reset options listed here, and still bupkus. Nothing is seeming to work. Left on the charger overnight, and the only time I get any lights at all is when it is on the dock, and then I get a red light followed by 5 flashing green lights. Occasionall this has changed ie: when I have it on the dock and press +/- and power buttons at the same time, I get a red light followed by 3 green flashes. This is my boss's PB, he's loaned it to me for a test drive to see if I like it, and I can't even get the **bleep** thing to power on! Help!

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

So, one of our dev PlayBook turned into a brick (no light whatsoever), how do we get it repaired? BlackBerry only seems to offer 90 days or ticket based support.

BlackBerry offers 1 year warranty, you have to call in and ask for warranty and not support

Turned into a brick.. how?

No red LED, nothing?

And you've tried the charging and powering solutions posted in this thread?

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

You say you tried everything - you did use a proper charger or a rspid charger? You know presumably that playbook will not take any charge ffom PC or indeed any USB source with a standard cable?

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

The PB died after I used the rapid charger, before and after that I connected it using the normal charger.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

ok, now that you've told us everything... that PlayBook is savable, by doing all that you've been doing.

 

Keep charging it with the wall outlet charger...24 hours and more... every few hours press and hold the power button only for 20 seconds. After a while you'll see the red LED again and then the no battery icon onscreen. Keep charging.

 

And if you really want to save it, get the magnetic rapid charger from Amazon for about 18$USD.
