I've just had this. My charging cable has faulted.

Ordered a cheapo one from ebay and it's all good now!

Default Samsung ignores the problem

I too had this problem. Bought the tablet (galaxy tab 10.1 32GB wifi only) on Ebay at the shop from Digigood. I wanted a 32GB without the 3G and at that time (september 2011) this config was not available in the Netherlands. But 5 weeks ago at one night I put the power off and wanted to power up the next day but all I got was a black screen. Boy, have I tried all the solutions from this forum and all others on the internet but nothing worked for me. Foolishly enough I lost the warranty sign and Samsung NL offered to repair but it would cost at least 400 euro's because an entire new motherboard needed to be inserted as they say by phone. They woulnd't accept my ebay-payment proof, nor would they accept the bank print. I told them there was no way I could trick Samsung with warranty for the tablet was at the time it got stuck only for 5 months on the market! So I called Samsung UK (the company I bought the tablet from is UK) and they too wouldn't help me out. Finally I mailed Digigood and I was rather desperate for my tablet was "dead" for weeks at that time. And Guess what, the only thing I had to do was sending the tablet back and now I am getting a brand new one
Digigood at least told me I am not the only one with the problem and they told me Samsung wants to keep this silent because the galaxy 2 tab 10.1 is coming out soon and they don't want negative news issues....they also told me Samsung still has no clue what's wrong with so many 10.1 tablets...........

I've run into this problem a few times. Seems to happen when I plug and unplug the charging cable while the device is in standby mode.
I've made a habit of turning the screen on and making sure the device is not in standby mode,.whenever I plug or unplug the charging cable.
Since doing this, I've yet to experience the problem again.

What do you mean by "stand-by mode". Aren't there just three modes?

1) Screen on.
2) Screen off, but device on.
3) Device off.

Sorry, I mis-read your previous post. You only start charging when the screen's on. I almost always charge my tablet with the screen off. Hopefully it will carry on working.

I manually turn the screen off after the charging cable has been plugged in.
I usually don't have issues when plugging and unplugging the charging cable while the screen is on.
If not, I I've run into problems where the screen would be black with a faint glow in the background, and it won't work unless I do a force reboot.

Default galaxy tab 10.1 would not boot up

Couldn't get #%*& out of Samsung site. Fortunately found this forum and got exact answer I needed. The folding case I kept tab in was barely touching the "power on" button and unbeknownst to me ran the battery down. Put back on the charger and that fixed it. Many thanks!!!

Not sure if I am posting this correctly, but wanted to say Thanks for this. I woke up this morning and tried to turn my tablet on to no avail. My first thought was, "Oh no. Will Costco take it back? I don't have the receipt!" Then I got on this site, read your very simple advice (how in the heck will this work I thought), but tried it. Voila! Up and running! Thanks again.

Laugh touch screen and power works!

I can't believe it worked but holding the power button down while touching the screen worked. Took about 15 seconds but did the trick!

I have tried every one of the suggestions above. Nothing is working. Last night I turned it off, put the charger on it and went to bed. This morning the battery icon keeps flashing on and off and it looks like it's charging but it won't turn on or reset with any of the methods everyone else tried. It's an infinite loop of the battery icon showing it's charging. It's at around 50% and doesn't go up or down.

This is my second Tab 2. The first one got stuck on the power up Samsung screen and continued through every option described by everyone on this board. It was replace by the manager at the store where I bought it, but I had to throw a fit to get one on my replacement warranty.

Now what? I use this for school and home and a lot of my bills and cards are connected to this Tab. I am about fed up with Samsung. They said they would send me a label to be able to send it back to them. I never got it.

Hi

After years without a problem my tab 2 10.1 wont start. Just getting the battery starting symbol - getting 1 yellow bar and then it just dies - repeats over and over again if on charge. Have had it on the charger and PC but nothing works. Have tried the solutions given but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any other ideas - I know that it is old tech but would like some pictures/videos off it.

Thanks

Default My samsung is dead to the world

If anyone can shed some light on this its appreciated.
Went on holiday with my tablet and all was well with it, charging no problem working no problem.
One day went to get it from my room and there was 7% charge in it so I put the charger on and it reported it was charging but never went over 10%
Later that day it powered off and would never come back on after that.
Came back to UK plugged it in and nothing not a peep from it no charge light no nothing.
Ordered a replacement battery and after I fitted it the tablet came back on and the charge was full. (Full battery right out the box)

Had to go to work so left it, next morning it was dead as a dodo again.
After reading some posts I ordered and replaced the usb charge ribbon and it still wont show a thing, no charge no power nothing.
Does anyone know of anything else I can try before its turned into a fancy placemat?
The holding power while volume keys pressed doesn't do a thing and I dont want to spend more money buying another battery if it isnt going to work.
Any info appreciated
Thanks

I've now replaced the battery and it worked for a night and the battery drained and it wouldnt charge so I bought a new ribbon cable for it and still it wont charge it is totally dead.
So up till now I have bought a new charger, new battery and new ribbon cable and no joy at all, it is now a placemat.

Default not charging right

Hi
i have had my tab fo years and no problem then i lost the converter (the thingy in the wall to plug the usb into) and i just used my phones, but it wouldnt charge, it showed me the charging battery to 50% then black out and showed the battery again:

Found out the orriginal has a 2A, and my phone is a 1A.... check this

bought a 4A because the store had nothing else, and it charged within 2 hours, usualy takes 6-8...

But it will burn down the battery quicker and I am now again using a 2 amp...

by the way the thing with holding the button down and touching the screen, i am awestruck
