The Charger could have killed my Playbook OP agrees it did not die or get killed but could have

[ Edited ]

Hi,

Last night I placed the Playbook on the base, the light came up as usual when there is a power source plugged into it, and this morning when I woke up the Playbook had only about 20%  power left, and it was at 100% when I placed it on the base.

 

Now it is charging using the phone charger, so be careful all with the base, beside being lacking connections it is also not charging all the time

Re: The Charger killed my Plabook

Re: The Charger killed my Plabook

Wow, so your Playbook is completely dead, no charge whatsoever, black screen, no red or colored LED?

no quite there, but it had only about 20% left in it overnight, I am sure that the charger drained it, because when i use it for long period of time it never goes below 50%, and now after about 6hrs it is almost completely drained.

 

Now I am using my old Bold 9700 charger and it is almost full

Re: The Charger killed my Plabook

Oh ok. Your thread title is very very misleading if your PlayBook is not dead. It just doesn't help any.

Re: The Charger killed my Plabook

Did you reboot or do a security wipe after?
That will be the collective answer, I imagine.
Mine works great. Is this really a problem?

Re: The Charger killed my Plabook

"Last night I placed the Playbook on the base"

 

that would mean you are using the magnetic charge base?

 

It has 3 pin connections and they do collect dust unless you cover the charger.

 

 

if talking about the USB one, then its not easy to clean the micro USB port.

 

So you playbook is not dead? title is misleading

I use the base with 3 pins but I always thought that those pins were going inside of the Playbook to make connection to charge

 

BTW If I had wake up about 1hrs later it would be dead, and I could not have sent this discussion because I would not have the Playbook to connect to this place
