    It is brand new out of the box and has been charging for over an hour and won't turn on.
    Red light comes on for 3 seconds. Yellow light comes on for 3 seconds and then nothing.
    I don't even know if it's charging.

    It's been two years EOL, there's no such thing as brand new PlayBook, mate, despite coming shiny out of the box. Lol.
    Anyway, what have you been charging it with--the magnetic head fast charger, or the USB port? Try to charge it with the USB port connected directly to an electrical socket (not tethered to Laptop or any other device).

    One hour is not enough to charge any device. The PB will not turn on if it does not have enough battery. So, given how long it was sitting in the box and discharged, I'd probably give it at least 6 hrs to just accept a charge. When the PB is off, the yellow-green light will pulse and when fully charged it will glow steady green. Don't try to turn it on until you see the steady green. Otherwise, if you turn it on prematurely, you will discharge any charge you built up and you have to start over.
