I'm posting this on behalf of my Mum who has a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 which isn't working or charging at all. I told her HUKD is a great place to come for technical advice, so any tips or ideas would be very much appreciated!
'I have a Samsung Galaxy tab2 which won't charge or turn on. I have had it charging via the USB plug in a mains socket, as the mains adapter it came with has been ineffective for a few months.
When plugged in, the battery image appears, indicates 2 charging 'cycles' then goes off immediately. This process repeats ad nauseam until I get fed up of seeing it, and unplug.
I have tried the power /volume button routine ( many times) as suggested by someone on the net, which worked a few months ago, but not now.
I did purchase a new battery for it as it wasn't holding a charge for any length of time, but the screw holes were not all in the correct places.
Can anyone suggest anything else, or is it a case of buying another battery from a different supplier?'
