my blackberry playbook wont come on at all!

it had loads of charge on it, and it had loads of space (storage) left, but when I press the power button it does'nt do anything! when I plug it into my laptop it comes up with a red light, which lasts for a couple of seconds before a green light comes on and starts flashing and then there is no light! does anyone know what to do?! 

 

thank you

Red followed by five green/yellow says battery too flat to boot.

Therefore it does NOT have loads of charge despite what you thought. 

 

Try the charger for 24 hours. Hold power button down 20 seconds if it tries to boot.

 

If that fails you need to look at the hundreds of similar posts, look at the various remedies, but mainly think about a rapid charger that uses the three pin socket.  It could also be a bad battery or motherboard but a damaged micro-usb socket is the most likely.
