Hi, I'm really at a loss. My battery drained and I can't get PB to reboot. Plug it in, press the power button and it will blink for a few moments then die. I've tried two types of chargers. I've tried holding down the other buttons at same time I power up. It just won't hold. I don't know what to do. It's been losing battery power ever since updating to 0s2 but now i can't get it to charge at all. Is there a KB article or something somewhere? I don't think I have any warranty on my PB - i've had it exactly one year now. Please help. I had files I needed to get off it urgently.

So weird end to my 'playbook doesn't charge' problem. I tried all the advice. Holding it down for 10 times, etc, and I finally gave up and left on a trip without it. Came home and plugged it in again. Plugged into wall first and then into PlayBook and the red light came on. And this time it stayed on. It was like my PlayBook wanted a week off. Hopefully this will be an anomaly and won't happen again. It was quite strange - i tried different electrical sockets, two different charges and tried for two days along with all the advice i could find. I guess my advice is don't give up.
