Basically, if you have to try and establish "IF" the charging system is at fault or yor Tab 2 device by substitution method.
By substitution method I mean try your charging accessory(s) on a friends working Tab 2 or product that uses same cable connection and or theirs on yours.
I can't quite fathom two of them can have same problem i.e.Tab 2 devices BUT can understand if you ONLY tried 2 different cables and NOT the USB power supply that regulates the electricity, meaning I doubt you're refering to TWO Tab 2's being faulty, but rather charging system made up of plug pack with USB connector and USB cable to Samsung Port connector.
The charger socket has probably broken its solder connections, happens because of repeated movements straining it by using it when the charger is plugged in. Have you tried charging it through the mini usb socket?
Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it
is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery
each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either
to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The
battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the
remaining battery charge.
Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter,
and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can
connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the
top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction
as the front of the jukebox. View Picture
If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB
cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge
from the computer's USB cable.
Note: If you are charging your jukebox
from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges,
but it will take longer to charge.
If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the
upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while
the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully
When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the
two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.
The battery will not charge when the device is turned on. Make sure that when you connect it to your computer via its usb that you do not turn it on otherwise it wont charge.
The annoying thing about this device is that when you connect it to your computer and turn it on, on the LCD it will say "connecting via usb" and the memory bar will show that it is fully charged, however the battery is not. This must just be a design flaw as the battery won't be charged.
Just remember to plug it in and leave it, do not turn it on!
I think holding down menu and the record button at the same time should fix it. I read the best solution and it just turned on. I was having the same problem, mine would not turn on either but just try pressing and holding down the record and menu button for about 5 seconds.
