BlackBerry PlayBook Will Not Charge

Alright so let me go into some background information first.  A few days ago I sold my PlayBook to someone on Craigslist.  Prior to this event I was able to charge the PlayBook just fine (no issues, at all).  Before I initially sold it, I did a security wipe on the PlayBook so I could sell the it without having my information stored on it.  Since then I received a text message a day later from the new owner, he said that the PlayBook will not charge.  Now, I do not know the exact nature of this issue, so I am relying on you guys to help me resolve the problem.  Anyone?

Hi xXK1ng0fPa1nXx,


The BlackBerry® PlayBook™ has to be powered on to charge.  If the buyer is still having problems, have him plug in the BlackBerry® PlayBook™, then hold down the power button for 15 seconds.  It should power on and from that point charge.

...or maybe he put the USB plug in upside down and wrecked it?
