    so i'm not sure what's going on with my playbook, but the past two times i've tried to charge it on the charging stand, it does the opposite..rapidly discharges the battery. i thought i had figured it out that i have to connect it, wait for it to show that it is 'charging,' take it off, and put it back on again. last night that didn't work. i have it hooked up via usb to a wall charger now, and it's just sitting at 0% battery, but the lightning bolt is showing. anyone else having this issue, or possible it's just my playbook battery dying?

    Leave it on the wall charger for half a day and then check. Once it hits ZERO, it can take a while before it starts registering upward values.

    Look at your dock - make sure all three springloaded pins are at the same level or height. One of them might be stuck down and not making contact. Play with it with a toothpick or probe - press in/out. Spray with electrical contact cleaner.

    I have rebooted it everytime it happens, but it keeps recurring. I checked the contacts and they seemed to be fine. not sure what else it could be...guess I just need to keep an eye on the battery level when I first put it on the charger...
