I don't know how it came off.  I found it in the case loose.

Got some super glue?

 

Knowing how it came off would be useful in knowing how to re-apply it.

I've seen lots of problems with the PlayBook, never this one.

Re: Playbook Power Button came off!

Thank you -

Yes, I can get some superglue....but it is very very small and I wonder if it would affect the power button?

There is an indentation on the bottom of the button so very little room to apply glue.

Re: Playbook Power Button came off!

If the switch is still intact, and it is just the power button this could be glued back on with some good epoxy. Take car to not do damage it the switch itself.

 

Personally, I have a feeling the switch is damaged. If this is fact, then the tablet would have to be sent to Blackberry for service.
