    I haven't used my playbook in a while and I dusted it off to see if I could install some android apps. It seemed to charge fine the first time, but now it won't. It must be taking some power from my computer, though, because it stays on while it's plugged in. It just says it is Unable to charge battery with connected source. I've tried other chargers with the same result. Is there any reset I can do to fix the issue?

    The standard PB charger carries almost three times the current of the standard chargers for other smartphone, id order one from CB or ebay.... otherwise, I'd recommend trying to trickle charge it by plugging it in for 5 seconds, then pull out and repeat about 50 times.

    Hope that helps!

    Plug it in to a S5 brick and a S3 cable. Boom.

    I have the same problem - if nothing works is it possible to open it up and change the battery?

    Yes it is possible to change the battery. It's also possible to charge the battery directly after opening. There was a post somewhere on the interwebs showing what terminals were used to connect up a power supply.
