    [SOLVED] Galaxy Tab2 10.1 Won't Charge

    Last night I watched a movie on my Tab2 10.1. It gave me the low battery warning and dimmed the screen, which is fine, but I fell asleep because it was late. When I woke up, I plugged it into the charging cable (like I always have done for the past several months), and it's 12 hours later and it hasn't charged a lick. When I press the power button, it gives me that battery picture with the spinning timer in the middle, then shows the battery with the yellow fill animation sliding like it's charging, but it's got nothing. When I disconnect it and press the power button briefly, it won't even show the battery level; when I hold the power button down to start it, zilch.

    I've searched for help, can't find anything useful. Have I drained it to a point of no return? Can anyone help me please? GT-P5113 is the model number

    Welcome to the forum Hennman. Try this, turned off, plug your tab into a running PC for 4-5 hours then try turning it on again. Don't pay any attention to it for the time it's plugged in.

    Well, left it connected to my laptop all night, nothing. Won't hold a charge, certainly won't turn on. It keeps doing that battery graphic thing...almost like it's trying to connect to charge but can't complete the process.

    What else can I try?

    Have you tried, with the Tab plugged in to a/c power, a very long press on the power button? Say up to 1 minute long?

    Yeah, tried that...tried the volume-down & power press, different chargers, nothing so far - i have a training class today, but i have it plugged into a different charger (again LOL), so we'll see how it goes at lunch break.

    Thanks for sticking with me.

    Well, you might not believe this, but i tried that different charger - a Belkin regular usb wall socket charger - and it's now up to 50%. Sooo, not really sure what the heck was going on, but i'm going to stick with this charger - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, looks like magic happened here. LOL

    Ive got a similar problem here. I kept my tab on charge for 12 hours. Before putting it on charge it had 8% battery. After 12 hours when i checked it was 26%. How long should i keep it on charge? It might effect the battery due to over charging. It was working perfectly fine a few days ago. What do i do now?
