Re: playbook wont charge or turn on

  • yes a red one and then the empty battery in the middle of the screen flashes on and goes off then takes a break and does the exact same thing again, i though maybe the charger is broke but its not ive tried a numebr of diffrent ones.

also when i conecct it to the laptop the light flashes red and then goes on to flash green/yellow a numebr of times and thats it
