    Hello!

    This morning when i tried to start up my tablet it said that it was almost dead, so when i charged it it goes from the screen with a battery and a loading circle, to the charging battery screen, blacks out, then back to the loading screen repeatedly.

    How do I fix this?:thinking::thinking::thinking:

    Are you using the charger and charger cable that came with your tablet?

    Have you noticed if it's taking longer to charge lately and/or it doesn't hold a charge as well as it used to? The Tab 2 is getting pretty dated so I wouldn't be surprised if the battery is failing. Just took a look at Amazon and there are replacement batteries for around $50. It's not a simple 'pop a panel open and swap the battery' procedure but if you're comfortable with do-it-yourself projects ifixit has a nice battery replacement guide:
