I know some have scoffed at the idea of a battery pull on a Playbook, but it may actually help.
A friend of mine had problems charging his Playbook. No matter what it kept stuck at 0% and he would have it stuck in that endless boot/not enough battery cycle and even using 3-button reset and stack charging, nothing worked.
So we used plastic tools to pry open the Playbook and removed the little connector from the battery to the circuit board held down by 2 flat screws, and reconnected.
Everything worked back to normal!
And the Playbook had no sign of being open, that is because we carefully spudged it open with plastic instruments designed for this type of repair. No scratches are dents at all.
The reason this problem may happen is that the Playbook is never completely off, even when it is shut down. I believe any residual settings/registers/memory is still the same and it may need a total battery disconnect and reconnect to reset things.
The Playbook should have come with a small pin hole that basically completely disconnects the battery or does an even lower level reset than the 3-button method (in case there is a button hardware issue) for emergency cases.
For anyone scared to open up their Playbook, you can look on youtube for videos showing it and pick up the plastic tools for pennies at your local hardware cell repair shop.
NOTE: I assume your Playbook is out of warranty and you have no other options, otherwise just go through normal support warranty channels.
