    Hey guys!
    Here's the deal : My sweet Rottweiler puppy (Well .. 90 pounds but only 6 months old lol) she had the brilliant idea to chew on my PB wall charger wire, i' ve now stripped the wires on both (Charger side & new USB wire side to weld it back together) had to use another USB cable for the USB connector side since my gf got rid of it. On the USB side the wires are have the usual red & black power wires but the PB wire only have a white one and ground like insulating around it. Which one is + ? White?

    I wish you the best luck with this... I really don't think it's wise to mess with such things. One bad move and you'll blow your PlayBook up.

    I also don't think anyone in here has ever performed such "surgery", but well, here is me hoping this does not go south.

    Just buy a new one, either the folding blade 1.8 or better yet the magnetic one if you can manage to find one. Not worth blowing up your PB

    I agree. You could do irreversible damage. I bought a rapid charger from Amazon for $15.

    Quick question! PB Charger-unit_xl_6630926_2303900351_178242.jpg

    I do facing similar problem yesterday, which is my PB folding blade head charger being rip off,
    i try to surgery it and replace the charging head with another good one.
    So i used (nokia genuine) data cable to re-connect it, which is usual came with 4 cable (black, red, white, and green), and it does have same insulating ground wire around it.
    And this is for the scheme after a couple steps i faced, you just have to short or connect a "Data - " (white,) with "Data +" (green) wire on that charging head. see image below:

    So now i can using it again because i love this type of charger, beside of its build materials so good, it had so long cable length.

    Hope it can help
