Sold
Sale/Trade Feeler ..Blackberry 16gb Playbook

I have a 7" Blackberry Playbook 16gb that a friend of mine traded me in some stuff today, he drained the battery fully, and it wont light up or do anything, says he tried all the tricks possible to get it charging again, since I have no use for the Blackberry OS ,or charger & cables for it, I'm wondering if it's worth a trade for something Flight controller Or Autopilot related, that needs work also as I love to tinker with aircraft electronics more and learning code ect

I don't know if this can be fixed so I would prefer that you feel the same about your stuff for the trade, The Playbook Is in great shape otherwize, I beleive it was well taken care of and always kept in the aftermarket case (also included) and lens cleaning cloth

Let me know what you think

I had a similar problem with one of my older tablets. It happened when the battery was "below voltage" so not ruined or anything, just over discharged. Here is what I found and used to get mine bring mine back to life:

"If you follow these instructions you may be able to make a recovery but it will take some time. The charger is controlled by software. The software will not run because the battery voltage is too low. When the battery is too low and you turn on the PB, It will only run for about 4 minutes and then shut down again. During this 4 minutes, the charger will begin charging but since the battery voltage is still too low, the unit will shut down again and the charger will shut off. To get the voltage up sufficiently for the PB To continue, you have to have the charger plugged in and every 5 minutes or so, you have to hold the power button on until the red light flashes then release it.It will once again recharge for 4 minutes. You may have to repeat these steps at least 10 times. Once the voltage gets up a bit, the charger should stay on but it will takes 6 hours to fully recharge the battery. When your charger is charging, it will feel warm to the touch so check it often to see if it is in fact charging. "

Thanks, my friend said he tried all the tricks online, and because he was so frustrated he inadvertantly disposed of the old charger before learning it was not the charger that was dead, the tricks used to fix it require only the oem charger style to work ,a usb or aftermarket one will not work

GT5 Flybarless

I have a GT5 flybarless unit that has one channel not working. Bought it here about a year ago, but I have been too lazy to deal with the hassle of shipping it back for repairs. Also have an older Align flybarless unit that is working, but upgraded to a different unit. Let me know if you are interested in a trade.

Use the ORIGINAL wall charger NOT A USB CABLE to charge it back up. Stick the cord in and out a few times to trick the low voltage circit into taking a few quick power flashes. I had the same issue with the same unit. Also I think you have to hold power and volume up while booting. There are blogs out there on how to recover. All is not lost!


Douh saw you lost the original power cable CRAP!!!!!
