Charging Blackberry Playbook

Plug in port may be damaged.

All charger chords work on phones and other Playbook.

Can port be repaired?

Can battery be removed and charged in other Playbook?

Hello ChicoCananda


Welcome to http://supportforums.blackberry.com/


In this case you will need to contact a service technician for replacement of the part.


Still if you need more help and support you can write to @BlackBerryHep o mail help@blackberry.com

Re: Charging Blackberry Playbook

I have a similar problem with my Playbook.  The battery will not charge.  I have confirmed that the charger (fast version) has 5.0 vdc output. The charger connector appears not to go in to the port all the way. 


How is the battery accessed?


Thank you.
