Playbook has been plugged into AC to be fully charged.

 

After plugging in AC or USB power the red light tuns on, PC recognizs the Playbook while the red light is on.  Red Light turns off after ~20 seconds and nothing.  Black Screen and the PC Blackberry Desktop is disconnected.  Holding the Power & (+/-) buttons for 30 seconds does nothing.

 

Dead Battery?  Welcome other suggestions


Keep at it.. Keep trying, there is a great chance letting it charge and doing the power+up volume key can revive it.

Re: Playbook won't turn on

Thanks! My Playbook wenk black after I thought I'd plugged it in to charge overnight on a long roadtrip and I could not get it to start again. Been a couple stressful days on the road. Thanks for the reminder! It woke up and is now charging.
