Blackberry Playbook battery always at 0%

Hi all,


My playbook is around 11 months old now and has all of a sudden stopped charging properly!


I plug the charger in, everything behaves as normal and the playbook turns on fine, however the battery then says its charging but stays at 0% for the entirity that it is charging. when i remove it from charge it stays at 0% and then dies a very short while after that! 


Anyone got any idea if this is fixable or if i need to send it off under warranty?

Spend some time reading the Sticky at the top section of the forum, then if you are UK as it seems likely as you have O2, contact your retailer for a replacement while the warramty is still in force. My son did the same and got a 75% refund which was enough to biuy a replacement and make a profit. Depends on your country and retailer.
