Can't get my Playbook battery to recharge or turn on

My playbook worked fine and then I forgot to plug it in one time.  After several weeks, when I tried to turn it on, it wouldn't turn on.  Then I tried to recharge but it wouldn't charge up.  All I get when it is plugged in is 2 red flashing lights, a pause, then flashing red lights again and again.  I have tried some of the solutions others have suggested but nothing seems to work.  When it's plugged in, it won't turn on either.  I bought it in December of 2012.  Is there a way to changed the battery?  Or if not, how can I get the playbook to work?  I am frustrated as I hardly used it and would like to get some use out of it or should I just throw it away.  Help!!!!
