My tablet was 2 years old in September the model number is *****
I have tried:
Blowing into the charging port and into the usb cable
Unplugging the tablet, holding the power button down for 30 secs, plugging the device in, waiting for 2 minutes and then holding the power again for 30 secs.
Holding the power and the volume buttons down at the same time fir about 1 minute.
I sometimes get the battery symbol in the main display area showing a level of charging but it flashes off and the battery is clearly not charged.
I have in the pst found the little robot which gave me an option to reboot the memory, but i didn't have enough charge to complete.
I have also purchased replacement usb cables which don't appear to work at all.
I am curious about how long these tablets are supposed to last.
I struggled for a bit and then borrowed a samsung charger from a friend and that cured the problem. Apparently is was the plug in charger that was faulty. It is working fine now. thanks
