I was having trouble getting my playbook to hold a charge. Followed forum help directions and it starting charging again. Then I allowed a software update and now the playbook will not turn on - it just flashes a red light three times and does nothing. Even when I plug in the charger the charging symbol doesn't appear anymore.
Is there a way to revive my playbook?

LEAVE it connected to the wall outlet charger (not the USB > PC charger).
Leave it connected for 24 hours... every 3-5 hours, 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.
You will see the blinking red and perhaps yellowish LED light, and perhaps a symbol on screen of "no battery". That means the battery is drained, but it must reach a certain charge before powering on.
I know it sounds like you might have done this, keep trying.
