My Playbook will not boot on its own. This is what I do and have done,
1-Push power button to start playbook, result, nothing, no red light no blinking yellow/green light, nothing.
2-Atach fast charge wall charger (the one with the magnet), result, red light appears and then within a couple seconds goes out. I wait and a single yellow/green light glows for a couple seconds then that goes out. I wait again and the icon (battery with lightning bolt) appears for a few seconds then goes out. A few seconds later it boots all the way to desktop window. Battery says it is at 80%.
3-While playbook is on I remove the charger and “boom” it goes out. I try to start it again, back to 1, nothing.
4-I remove battery from this non-working playbook and replace it with the battery from a known working playbook.
5-I attempt to start and, and what do you know! Nothing, back to 1, No lights no icons.
Oh, done the debrick method several time, so mant time i can do it blindfolded
