Playbook not switching on after a full day's charging

Playbook has been on charge as normal.  When I try to turn on or connect to PC the red light comes on and then changes into a multi-coloured flashing litght for about 2 seconds.  Other than that nothing happens.  This has been charged on a charging dock as well.

Any suggestions?

Re: Playbook not switching on after a full day's charging

LEAVE it connected to the wall outlet charger (not the USB > PC charger).
With the charger STILL connected, press and hold the power button only, for about 20 seconds. Eventually it will boot on up, but first must reach a certain charge level.
