yes we are having problems trying to get our playbook turned on. We have tried to hold down the power button for 10 seconds and then there is a red blinking light and turns green blinks three times and nothing happens and we had even tried holding down the volume up and down buttons. If anyone has any other ideas please let us know. Thanks.

I went to Office Max and bought one of the BB PB charger stands instead of using the charger...the stand connects differently than the charger...One poster replied that after charging, hold down the power button and the two volume keys at the same time...after several tries, THIS did NOT work for me...One reply on this forum suggested letting it charge for 30 minutes then taking it off and holding the power button down for 10 seconds...and keep repeating this sequence until it finally boots up. I tried that and it DID work.
After a while on the charger, it began very slowly flashing the light (the not green light)...I have trouble with color and can't really tell if it is green or just a light.
Mine was deader than a doornail. I had this problem with my original PB and after several hours on the phone with support, they had me return it...and now the identical issue with the replacement. I would see a red light followed by several green blinking lights.'
You can bet that every night it is going on its stand...I like it too much to go through this again. I had an IPad first and it was ok, but I didn't like the fact that it does not support flash...

After my daughter used it for about 1 week, her playbook won't power up. I don't think that charger is making connection with the battery. Is there anyway to fix this? Is this repairable? Can I carge the Playbook wirelessly (without having to plug it in)? If there an extrenal battery charger I can purchase (without having to puy another Playbook)?
Any help would be appreciated.
