PlayBook doesn't charge after OS update

I have a serious problem with my BlackBerry PlayBook. It is not getting charged even though I connect it to the power for hours. I believe the problem started after the recent OS update. I tried both USB charging as well as using power cable, but there wasn't any change.


I can turn on PlayBook and use it while the power cable is connected. The charging icon is also shown. But it is always showing 0% and the PlayBook get turned off soon after I disconnect power. There isn't any physical damages to PlayBook and power cable. Also it hadn't completely drained out before this problem occurred. After OS update even though I tried charging PlayBook while it has around 20% charge it didn't get charged.


 I read some other posts about holding down the power and volume up and down buttons. But it didn't work. Anyone know what might be wrong?


Thanks in advance!
