My pc wont show the playbook as being connected, or recognize the device in device manager, but I can connect wirelessly. Also the charger is not recognized as being attached, and subsequently wont charge. It will charge with the rapid charge stand. I tried multiple usb ports and took it back to the store, where it connected easily with the usb wire. Both the usb connection and the charger were working a week ago, I dont recall any software changes, and the playbook os is up to date.
Any help is appreciated.

I get no response when I plug in the charger, or the usb cord, either with the playbook on or off.
Should I have gotten a different response when rebooting, as described in the earlier post. All it did was boot up normally, like every other time I have turned it on.

Was a different USB cable used at the store? May be a hint. If no are you using the back ports on your pc. I have a feeling it is the usb cable.

If the BlackBerry PlayBook is plugged into a power source while powered off it will automatically power on in order to accept the charge.
If the BlackBerry PlayBook is powered off while plugged into a charging source it will not continue to charge.
This is not true. I turn my playbook off and connect to the charging source it stays off. It doesnot turn on unfilled I press the power button.

I didnt watch what they did at the store. I will take it too a different store and see what they have to say.
It seems odd that I get no recognition from either cable out of that connection port on the playbook. It seems more like a physical issue to me.
Thanks for the responses.
