dead blackberry playbook

I have noticed there are lots of posts about dead playbooks that won't charge.  Mine is completely dead as a door knob.  I used to have the blinking lights...and now after trying to stack charge it, which was unsuccessful.  I have killed it dead.  does anyone have any advice for me?  I no longer have the 90 day support and don't really want to pay $50 US for them to try and help me.  Please help!

Re: dead blackberry playbook

Do not use the usb to usb charger (wall to usb or the purchased desktop rapid charger) and do not let the playbook go below 10%
