    Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

    2 x Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Suddenly Won't Switch On or Charge?

    Hi all, both of my children have the Galaxy tab 2 10.1. They have both mysteriously stopped working at the same time. They won't switch on and won't
    charge. When plugged in the batter symbol flashes a third of the way up and then the screen goes black. I have bought new chargers so know it is not them. The previous night to discovering they weren't working there was a slight power cut - could this have been the problem? I have tried holding power button down its own and along with the volume buttons but to no avail. Before they stopped working completely there was a red x when trying to use the charger. Does anyone have any ideas? I am currently trying the trickle charge on the laptop.

    Many Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum

    I don't think your power problem should have had any adverse effect on the tablets. Passing through a DC charger should have protected them. But it is strange that they are acting the same. I think the trickle charge is a good idea, then just long press the power button hopefully until something happens. Do that trickle for several hours.

    Unhappy Tab 2 10.1 Won't charge or turn on

    My tablet went dead yesterday and now won't charge or turn on. The screen just blinks on and off every 10 seconds. When on it has a picture of a battery with the power indicator about 1/3 up. I've seen the issue posted several times and the only resolution seems to be the trickle charge approach. Even doing this it is the same. I'm so sad right now.

    Will somebody PLEASE wave their magic wand? I live on this thing.

    Galaxy Tab 4
    My tablet went dead about a week ago . This is the second time it did this . getting kind of tired of having to call Samsung about it. Having read about 20 other people in the same fix , I am beginning to wish I bought a different Tablet. Is there a way to charge a Samsung Tablet on a charging pad device?
