Blackberry playbook Charging problem
I have a blackberry playbook since last 1.5 yrs..!!!!
The problem is that I am charging it with my normal playbook charger but its not getting charged..!!
I mean there is no problem with the charging pod or the charger....!!!
but the tab is not charging!!!
The battery is still at 0% after 12 hours of charging...!!! & the charging symbol is still there..!!!
Itz not even rebooting now...!!!

The Knowledge Base Article 27705 gives a discussion of charging behavior.
Other threads report that the charging icon can be displayed without actual charging occurring. This behavior has in particular been reported wth the charging dock but also the rapid travel charger. The solution is cleaning the three pins on the PB and the charger and making sure they are making contact. The wall charger can go bad and the usb port can be easily damaged particularly if the plug is inserted incorrectly.
If having PB startup problems pay attention to any light flash sequence you see to help idetermine what the problem is.

The Blackberry playbook has a manufacturing problem!! they should be fixed free ! everyone will have this problem. the USB Charging Port fails and needs replacing. that`s why last Christmas they had 50% off. i will never buy a Blackberry anything again ! my family have 5 playbooks its really not on.

The main problem is due to a design decision made long ago to use a type AB micro USB port presumably to allow OTG capability which was never implemented. The type AB port is somewhat rounded on the ends and not only allows jamming the trapezoidal plug in the wrong way damaging the port but also makes for a sloppier fit when the plug is inserted in the correct orientation. Incidentally OTG capability can now be gotten with a trapezoidal port which better guides and holds the plug. This is used on the Nexus 7 (2012).
