    I had this problem, i had several replacements before I discovered the problem is actually the chargers.

    Playbook requires a higher voltage charger. I bought a Playbook rapid charger on sale for $18. Charges twice as fast now.

    Also: don't bother calling blackberry, they are not only unaware of the problem but will also make you go through **** and back before sending you a replacement charger that may or may not actually charge your device anyway.

    Is what you want. Check out stores like Visions Electronics i got it for $18 there (they will sell it to you for $18 even if it is not on sale, just ask nicely they are commission).

    USB charger or magnetic rapid charger?
    Does anything happen when you plug in? Lightning bolt?

    What are the three different chargers? Are they Blackberry official chargers designed and supplied for use with the Playbook. Have any of them worked in the past?

    Have a look at the inside of the USB port and make sure the middle pin is aligned correctly. Putting in the plug upside down can push the middle pin out of alignment. I've fixed a couple of Playbooks not charging by gently straightening the pin.
