Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks for your answer - The charger is OK - as I said I have replaced already. I want to try the reset but I have photos and video on the tablet and assume this will wipe these from the memory? I have tried to sync with Kies but the battery is running out before I can get this sorted is there a better way of getting my pictures off?
Hello Simon, I have updated to Google drive, the battery actually charged over a day but I decided to reset the notepad anyway. There are a lot of apps running after I have reset and reloaded a couple of Apps - notably Google Play, Google Maps and other unwanted notes tat came in on the back of of installing Google Drive - are these what are draining the battery? If so is there a way to stop them automatically or do I have to go into apps manager every time? There are a lot less applications running now so I will charge overnight and see how it looks in the morning.
Hiya sorry no reply still trying to fix but had a few days away. The notepad is charging up intermittently over a couple of days it reaches 100% but occassionally it doesnt charge at all. I can stop apps from running now to save a bit here and there so I can make it last longer but still concerned. I have ordered a lead and will try that when it receives but if this doesnt work where do I go? Is there a weakness in the Note with voltage regulators or something like that? Is there a component I can try repairing it with if the cable does not work? Thanks for your help so far - backing up with Google drive was a pukka bit of advice.
No - big mistake on my part I let it drift too long. OK thanks for the advice - I understand the unit a little more now and being able to back up my photos was sound. Very pleased with your service.
