    I've been trying trying since yesterday to charge it but it doesn't seen to connect with any charger. I've tried 2 different chargers with the usb port and the rapid charge dock and the 3 pin rapid charger. Nothing happens - it doesn't show that it's charging and battery % is slowly decreasing. This is my original PlayBook I got on day one. I gave it to my daughter after I got the 64 GB and she would let the battery go dead for long periods of time. I took it back and revived it and it's been working fine and charging normally until a few days ago. Last time I charged it, it only got to 98% and stopped. Then since yesterday I got nothing. My slightly newer 64 gig Playbook still works fine. Does anyone have any suggestions? I loved it - was my first tablet love.

    Search this forum for "stack charge". There are many threads on this.

    I know about stack charging but the Playbook doesn't recognize the charger - doesn't take any charge. I can try it again though. Edit, the chargers work on my other Playbook. I've also tried different outlets.

    Have you been using the same mains socket by any chance? If so, try another that you know works...

    Rarely do I allow the PlayBook to get below 9% because it seems to be difficult to "wake" up at a lower charge state. The magnetic quick charger can be tempermental meaning it can be connected and still not charge unless I remove and flip it around. The most reliable charger is the mini usb port which has never failed me. Both Playbooks are nearly 5 years old and still surfing just fine.
