Blackberry Playbook Red Light Flashing?

For a few days a fed light flashes every 3 seconds. When on and off. Also the screen gets hot quickly, like just half an hour of use it gets hot to the touch. Anyone know why?

    Do you have the 2.0 update installed (If so the light could simply mean you have new mail). You say “when on or off”, so I assume you haven’t experienced “bricking” … marked by the inability to power up the tablet. If that were the case you would need to do a complete refresh of the “factory image” (a 400+ MB download and reinitialization of the tablet). I can’t comment on the screen “getting hot”.
