    I am not a techie nor am I remotely savvy with electronics so forgive my ignorance . I purchased my glorious PlayBook when they first came out and since then I've never had problems with it. I purchased and have been using the power platform two years ago and now my PlayBook doesn't charge. Has anyone had to replace their platform?

    Power platform, as in the charging dock? I had issues with mine about a year ago and since then I've had to charge my PlayBook with the charger from my Q10. I've seen other reports on CrackBerry of issues with the charging dock as well.

    Yes sorry the dock. I've tried the PB charger again as well as my Z10 chargers but no luck. I'll search deeper through the threads.
    Thank you for your help.

    Look for stack charging in the forums. Not sure what that is exactly, but I've seen that posted as the solution for PlayBooks that don't charge.

    I have had charging issues with the Playbook and the dock. I used a dry q tip to clean the contacts on the Playbook and the dock and all was good.

    Did you try the magnetic charger?

    I will look for stack charging and I will definitely clean the dock and PB with a cotton swab - didn't even think of that.
    Thank you for your responses they're very helpful.
