Hi Peter, if the new battery is not charging and you do not see a charging icon on the screen then there is likely a bad connection with the charger.

Have you tried using a different charger to rule out any problem with it?

If using a different charger does not help then the charging port on the tablet is suspect and it will need to be replaced.

Over time, the charging port will wear out and will eventually have to be replaced.

Hi Pete
I've tried two different chargers and neither gets a response from the tablet. How do I go about getting the charging port replaced?
