Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

I am in Milton. If the PlayBook has been behaving like that you should contact RIM. It is under warranty for 1 year. Here is their contact info.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

Hey JCASS I read that after red led when yellow shows it means it is charging and you should let it charge for at least 3.5 hours.

My problem is that I never got the yellow light, and I let it charging beyond 6 hours (all night long).

 

Going to try the 20s pressing power buttom at night.

JC,
The red flashing light is also used for email notification. Tap Gear, Tap Sounds and Notifications to see if it is turned on.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

The problem is back. I had problem charging it to 100% over the weekend after using the battery till ~9%. Finally manage to get it to charge till 100% but the power never drops.

 

After doing the power + vol up/down reset, the battery is dead again.

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

I have the same issue, after connect my PB to the charger for a long time and then the device will automatically power up. Now My PB can power on and working, but need connect with AC adapter always, when I remove the AC adapter, the PlayBook is power off on the moment and can't power on without AC adapter. Anyone can help me ?

Re: Play book wont power up or light just blinks

You are right. It's so stupid to expect user to chrage their device only after searching on this forum and doing stupid reboot. Does any consumer device expect that from consumer? In that case they should supply another device to browse the forum for "How to charge/reboot" topic.

 

I couldn't charge my device and gave it to service center in India and it's more than 2 weeks they are not having any answer. I wish i can also get refund for my device (BTW, we bought 2 devices in our office and both of them in the same state now)


I must say that they have a pathetic device and service support in India.

I am located in Canada. We have a number of these Playbook. When used and charged properly we have no faults. They work very well and are reliable.
