    For the past day or so, whenever I try to charge my Samsung Galaxy Tab, it has been preforming an odd cycle in which it shows the battery charging icon and then shuts off, a process which is repeated every few seconds or so. Any suggestions on what to do?

    I should probably point out that about a few months after I recieved my tablet, it has been (almost always) showing a red "X" over the battery icon when charging, and the charging process is slowed down consideribly. When my "turning off/on when charging" problem showed up a day ago, my tablet had somehow been completely drained of battery power while turned off (which, incidentally, it never did before).

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    What Galaxy Tab are you using? If you identify it we will move your question to the thread dedicated to it.

    Might need a new battery, that is just my guess from what you are saying about a red "x" over top of the battery.
