    I got a the Blackberry Playbook a few days ago from Amazon. I was so excited and happy when it finally got here. But, when I turn it on, the brokeh background goes on and on through the color of the rainbow and nothing else. So, I turn it off and leave it charging for overnight, the light was solid green. and tried it again. It will not boot properly. Whenever I release the usb charger from the playbook, I get a plug, green arrow, and lighteningbolt. However, I am not too sure what it means or if the playbook is correctly charging.

    Any suggestions?

    It's possible that the thing is bricked and you MIGHT be able to load an OS on to it, OR it could have some sort of hardware fault. You might have to do a warranty exchange on it. Amazon is pretty good about stuff like that. You could also try debricking it with Desktop Manager

    Factory reset for the BlackBerry PlayBook also fixes bricked devices | CrackBerry.com
