    Hi all, my main 64g playbook started acting strange since yesterday.
    I noticed it had a yellow light (it was plugged into the mag charger stand).
    I unplugged it and the light went out, like it was dead.
    I plugged it into my fast charger (with the yellow plug) and left all night and all today.
    I just got home and the light is now green and slowly going on and off.
    Does anyone know what's wrong with it?
    Its the one I use all the time, so its not like it was left unplugged or unused for days or anything.
    Thanks to all who offer help.

    How much battery life is it showing or won't it turn on? Did you try a hard reboot?

    Green on off usually means it's charged full
    Take it off the charger and press hold the power button
    It should turn on

    ^ this worked
    weird cause when I unplugged it, it kept showing the 'unplugged' icon and that's never happened before.

    You probably didn't have a good connection with the mag charger and the battery went dead and the Playbook shut down automatically.

    Any time I use the mag charger or cradle, I use BatteryGuru to ensure it is charging properly.
