Tablet will not charge
I read on a different post on this site, to disconnect it from the power cord. Then hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds & while STILL HOLDING DOWN the POWER BUTTON, SLOWLY insert the power cable. Continue to hold down the power button for up to 30 seconds, AND VOILA, PRESTO, it was fixed WITHOUT taking the Tablet apart, WITHOUT spending a dime or even a penny!!!
Had same problem
1) replaced power cord; with much better quality
2) reconnected/soldered wiring inside at the power port; it came loose
Now works again!
Samsung Galaxy Pro-Tab 12.2 will not charge:
a.) My first thought was to replace both: charger and power cord.
Both charger and power cord: can be connected and re-connected many times within a span of 24 hours. Over a period of months, wear occurs due to this process. A spare cord and charger, is not a bad thing to keep on hand.
b.) In that the cord and charger didn't solve the problem, the logical solution would be: replace the battery charging port. Repeat connection of the power cord to the charging port, results in wear over a period of time. I noticed the wear, in that the power cord did not grip the port as it once did.
For those that choose to replace the battery: care in connecting the battery plug to the tablet is crucial, in that the blades witch connect the plug to the tablet, are quite fragile. In one particular you-tube battery replacement video, the tech pointed out that the plug was damaged, and the tablet needed to be returned to Samsung for service. Factory service tends to be a bit expensive.
With the exception of this failure within the first sixteen months, I have had no other complaints with this tablet.
