Damaged Playbook?

Hello anyone who can help. My Playbook won't power-up for some reason. I thought that the battery was just fully drained but when i try to charge it, the red indicator would just come on for maybe 10-15 seconds and then turn off again. And my playbook doesn't charge even if i leave the charger on for a couple of hours.


What should I do?

Try holding the power button on for up to 20 seconds while it is plugged into electric power. It worked for me. Good Luck!
