Re: Playbook won't Charge!

No, don't try to turn it on, let it charge. When it is deeply drained at less than 3%, it can take several hours to reach a usable state.

Re: Playbook won't Charge!

The key here is patience. Let is charge for several hours... 24 hours. Every 4-5 hours, WITH the charger still connected, press and hold the power button alone for about 20 seconds.

Re: Playbook won't Charge!

I have the same problem, no light and no charge.

 

Should I use the charger provided with the Playbook or the docking fast one?

Re: Playbook won't Charge!

Try the rapid charger first... and then the other.

Re: Playbook won't Charge!

I have found a solution for my problem :

 

I have cleaned the charging pod connector and the Playbook magnetic connector with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip.

 

When I replaced the Playbook on the charging pod, the red light came on with the empty battery icon on screen then the green light flashed for a couple of times.  My battery was at 0% charge.

 

The date on the Playbook is now set to April (it probably lost track of time) and my battery is still on charge.
