    So the mini usb connector on my rapid charger has begun to short out. I had an idea of taking another mini usb cable and just cutting the end off of it and splicing the wires together to each other and saving a few bucks. Well I took the rapid charger cable and cut it. Inside it a thick white and a thick black. Now, I know that the usb cable will have more colors but it should have white and black. So I cut the usb cable and there are 4 colors, red, green, black, white. So I just hooked up the black and whites, plug it into my playbook.... AND nothing. So I played with it connecting different wires together.

    Finally after what felt like forever I managed to get a red light on my dead playbook, by connecting the white wire to the red, and the black to the black. Then after about a minute it just shut off.. I am at a loss right now, I cannot figure this out, anyone tried this or have any suggestions on what to try, anthing will help.

    This might be way off given what you're trying to do, but take a look at this thread.

    I just picked up a rapid charger for $10 at staples. Might be worth your while to seek one instead of fimbling around with soldering wires and electrical tape
