Blackberry Playbook will not charge beyond 26%

My playbook will not charge past 26%. I have tried stock charging, resetting to factory setting, and leaving it for hours to charge. The battery icon shows the charged icon but it is only at 26%. Please help what should I do to fix it.

Re: Blackberry Playbook will not charge beyond 26%

Thanks, however it says that I am not qualified for the complementary help service. Although I do still have a 1 year warranty.

I have been on other forums and other playbook users are having the same problem. I was wondering if this is a software glitch or a software to hardware glitch. I hope RIM decides to adress this problem in a software update or just in Blackberry 10 altogether.


Could you give another suggestion please and thank you.

#TeamBlackberry all the way!
