Last night I plugged my Blackberry Playbook in, and I noted that the battery power was at 50%. When I unplugged it this morning I saw that it was still at 50%. Over the course of the day I have tried various things to try and get it to charge. When the PB is off it will show the red light for about 10 - 15 seconds, then after a couple seconds it will start to flash the yellow/green light (it varies in colour), after about 45 seconds to 1 minute this will stop and then it will show the lightning bolt icon and an arrow pointing to a plug-in icon which indicates that the PB was disconnected from the power source. It does this every single time I plug it in whilst turned off.
When the PB is plugged in and is powered on it shows no indication of charging, no lightning bolt appears over the battery icon. As well when I connect it to my laptop it does not indicate any connection has been made.
I have tried various chargers and USB cords including the cords that came with the PB.
I have read other forums on the site and none of the suggestions seem to be helping...
- I have tried what is known as the stack charger..Does not make a difference.
- I have had it plugged in for at least 12 hours over the course of the day
Unfortunately the battery is now only at 14% and I'm fearful that once it goes down to 0, I will be at a complete loss.

Thanks for the help. The charger works fine with other devices, and I looked at the PB plug-in. As far as I could tell it looked "ok" but really what do I know. I guess I'll have to look into that other charger.
