Playbook Battery dead after 6 months

I have a blackberry 34 g I bought in December and the battery won't charge. I saw on eBay where they sell batteries (Chinese of course) with tools to replace the battery. I've replaced things in my laptops many times but I can't even find a place to open up my playbook. Does the screen just pop off and then the battery unscrews from inside? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Cheryl

Major strip required. Battery is underneath the motherboard according to photos I've seen.

 

It's most likely your usb port.  Get a rapid charger.
