    Hello Everyone. I just got my new-to-me, refurbished, purchased-from-a-top-rated-eBay-dealer, Blackberry PlayBook, less than an hour ago. I took it out of the box, pushed the power button and nothing happened. Nothing at all. Now I've got it hooked up to the charging dock (which I also just bought) & a little green/yellow light is slowly pulsing. What's supposed to happen? Does the pulsing green light mean it's charging? Or what? Also, am I supposed to hold the power button down for a few seconds to turn it on??? Or is this thing broken? I have no idea what's supposed to happen. I figured I'd push the power button, & quick-like-a-bunny it would go on. I was incorrect. If it's not broken, how long should I let it charge before I try to turn it on again?

    Please help?

    Thank you in advance.

    Bye for now.

    Let it charge for longer. Best to let it get a full charge. Then press and hold power button until red light appears. Should then boot up. See following reference to Knowledge Base 27705.
