Hi BleepingComputer Community,

 

I am having trouble with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's charging. When I charge it, after a few minutes, the charging battery fills about two times, then it shuts off. Is my tablet screwed for good? Please, i need your help, because my tablet is an everyday user.

Which source for charging? With the AC adapter or via USB?

I assume you know you're charging it long enough, so I won't bother asking that.

 

Are you sure the charger or charing cord is good? You can get another cord and hook it to a computer, or get one of the USB chargers that plug into a car lighter socket. If that doesn't work, your battery is probably shot. If it does, you solved your problem.

 

There are Youtube videos about replacing the battery. Batteries for some models can be found on Amazon. I found two quickly. There might be more and/or other sources. There are probably places that will replace it for you for a fee (which might be higher than it should be).
