Re: Charging while connected to PC

Do you get the charging symbol when the PlayBook is on?

 

If so, you need to be aware that computer USB ports can only trickle-charge the PlayBook. If you are using it while plugged into the PC, it will provide a small charge. But only enough to slow down the power consumption and not enough to charge it at the same time.

 

If you want to charge the PlayBook while using it, it needs to be plugged into the mains.

Re: Charging while connected to PC

OK - have you tried using a different USB port on your computer or on another computer? You don't need to install the software to make it charge up.
