Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Not Charging - Brand New
Sunday 18th of March 2012
I've been reading through posts on here, but haven't really found anything definitive on why this is happening with these Tablets.... I purchased the 10.1" White, 32gb WIFI Only model about 3.5 weeks ago.. was charging fine via computer USB and Wall Adapter, and about 2 weeks into it, I started noticing the red X on the Battery icon when I was trying to charge the tablet. Standard apps installed, no rooting, no power management apps, nothing (yet.. hadn't gotten that far with it). When I power off the tab, the indicator looks like it's charging, and it is, but if I monitor the battery stats, they are always showing "discharging" and it will take days.. literally 4 - 5 days to get a 56% charge.I returned the tablet to Best Buy last night, they gave me a brand new one.. decided I'd let this one fully charge before trying to use it (I was too excited with my new toy, last time around).. and I noticed that this morning the tab was still 'charging'.

hey guys. here is an observation. I bought my samsung galaxy tab 10.1, 3 weeks ago. I have been charging it through the power adapter provided by samsung but added a USB extention so that the cable is a bit longer, as the one provided with samsung is pretty short. I noticed when charging the tablet with the usb extension on takes about 8 hrs straight to charge to 100%. Now i took the extension out and now it takes 6.5hrs. note that both times the tablet was discharged to 3% battery.

So everyone has been talking about the Red X icon that was covering the battery icon. I don't know how it is caused, but I have found multiple ways to stop it.1. Try Multiple outlets2. Turn Auto Brightness on if not already, then go to your (Tablet's) homepage. Shut the tablet off, then plug in the charger.3. Keep plugging and unplugging the charger from the tablet.4. Unplug the USB cable from the port and blow on the end of the USB to remove any dust.This has worked for me, and I hope it works for you too. Please leave a reply saying if it worked or not. Thanks.
