    My Daughters tablet is refusing to charge. The charger is fine as it charges the other tab 2 10.1 in the house, the charger is also the original one

    She let it discharge, now when connecting to the charger (PC or mains), the screen goes through a cycle of displaying (been doing it for hours)
    • Empty Battery with buffering type symbol over the top for 8 seconds
    • Battery Symbol with dots under neath and partially filled in (in gold) for 2 seconds
    • Blank screen for 15 seconds
    any ideas?

    OK , have progress
    after trickle feeding from PC for 7 hours and then plugging into mains charger, it's now charging.

    Annoyingly the other one in the house is now discharged and showing same symptom.

    I have noticed this on my sons galaxy player. When depleted completely the batt doesnt want to charge. In that case I remove the batt and put it in another galaxy player that we have and charge it a minute or two and that seems to bring it back to life. Of course with the tablet you cant remove batt so you have to be careful not to let it discharge fully.
