Re: My Play book doesn't turn on and seems like not charging

Yes, keep charging. Do you see any LED activity at all now? Anything when you press and hold the power key for 20 seconds while you are STILL connected to the charger?

 

Look closely at your charger plug... the AC end which goes into the wall. What is the voltage or amperage stated on it?

Re: My Play book doesn't turn on and seems like not charging

The USB charger to another computer does not really work well..not enough power..you must use the usb to wall plug charger or as mentioned the magnetic desktop charger (Fast charger)..Also when charging, make sure the Blackberry logo on the usb cable is facing upwards  and not the USB logo..it will damage the mini usb port if you do

I think I've stated in this thread about 3-4 times... you must use a wall outlet OEM charger.

Even if you as a customer technical support service try your best to be nice, it doesn't make product better.


Most people in this forum are just playbook users like you.
