Won't power up after battery is drained - edit SOLVED ITSELF?!

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

The battery was fully drained on my Playbook (running OS2).  When I plug it into the PB charger, the red LED turns on for 17 seconds and then turns off and nothing else happens.  I have left it charging over night, but it's not warm anywhere indicating that nothing happened with the battery.  Holding the Power button for 20 seconds has no effect.  Please help!

same thing just happened to mine.... hopefully someone can help.

I havent turned mine on in a couple weeks... went to turn on yesterday and figured battery was dead and put it on the charger... came home from work 8 hours later and stil dead.... I get a red light for a few seconds, then nothing.

Re: Won't power up after battery is drained

Actually, I think my problem may have solved itself.  I was going to try stack charging (google it), and my charger is plugged into a power bar with a few other things.  I unplugged the other cords, so the PB charger was the only one, the PB started blinking yellow (indicating that it's charging) and now it's turning on.  Maybe the other things that were plugged in (2 computers & a moniter) were preventing the charger from getting full power?
