I had this same thing. The Batter image had a red line on the right side and the yellow triangle had an explanation point in the middle.

I searched the net and found a few solutions.

1. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds.

2. Hold the power button down and the volume down button at the same time for 30 seconds.

3. Just let it charge and over night and it should go back to normal.

I did all 3, in the order I wrote them. While in step 3, after about 5 minutes I pressed the power button and it showed that it was charging normal.

Hope this helps.

If holding down the power button for 10 seconds (theoretically, try holding it down for ages and be patient) doesn't reset your device, you may have to wait for the battery to run flat, then try the reset procedure again.
Hope this helps, Alistair

Hi buckpot2001,

To correct this issue, please follow the steps below.

1. Press and hold down the power button whilst at the same time touching the screen (you may have to wait up to 30 seconds as it clears the system).

2. You will then notice the battery indicator pops up.

3. The Tablet will then reboot. Everything goes back to normal.

4. If that fails to work, connect the power cable and repeat the above steps.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: My galaxy tablet was fine

You can damage the battery but it is very rare to actually do that. What you need to do is plug it in to the wall charger and leave it alone over night. At that point it should be just fine. it will actually start to show some signs of life after a few hours but don't be tempted to do anything wih it. it will first show a charge light or something after maybe 40 minutes if it is a faster charger.
If it shows no life the next day then you can try charging again but at this point you may hae a problem that requires either a battery replacement or warrenty. The battery has a microcontroller on it and when the battey gets real low they do not behave that well and typically you get the stone dead brick behaviour. And most people do not let it charge long enough to get it working. It is possible that there are other problems but those are usually moore serious and require replacement of the unit. The battery can be replaced but requires the etire case to be disassembled.
So charge it then check your warrenty and it may need serious repairs or to be replaced. If it is out of warrenty then you need to be careful on the cost verses replaceemn

SOURCE: samsung galaxy tablet is not

Make sure you are using the AC adapter as the Tab cannot charge solely from a USB cable connected to a computer or similar. If it is still not charging, your device's battery or connector has probably failed and will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, Alistair

SOURCE: How do I know when my Samsung Galaxy Tablet is

The Tab takes quite a long time to charge (not sure why). Note that the Tab cannot charge from a computer USB port (only from the included AC adapter. When the Tab has finished charging, it should put out a notification (open the notification drawer by pulling down on the status bar) saying the battery is fully charged and to unplug the charger. Other than that, you would have to install a third-party app like Smart Battery Monitor (see here) and watch that to see when it is full.
Hope this helps, Alistair

A samsung galaxy player 3.6 that wont turn on


The charger has a function that restores the battery operation parameters by discharging then charging the battery a number of times. Refer to charging instructions in the pack but I think the cycle is a 3 hourly one, time to charge from a full discharge. If the charger thinks the battery is dead then it will try to recover the battery using this process. You may have left the charger on long enough to charge then also discharge the battery.
Start again and charge for the time in the instructions ONLY, if you are not sure of the time try it for an hour, then without disconnecting the charger turn the unit on and take particular note of any screen messages, if any.
You should be able to continue as normal now, but still be aware of the time you are leaving the charger connected for, as it may take some time before it returns to normal operation and stops trying to recover what it thinks is a dead battery.

My first guess would be you have a broken battery. Try to open it and measure the battery. If it's above 3.7V, it is fine. Then you have to consider that your motherboard is broken. You should always try to replace a broken part yourself first. search model name plus "repair guide" on any search engine.They will show details about about part replacement etc. in detail. There are other websites that sell all the replacement parts, one of the bigger ones is http://portatronics.com (646) 797 2838.
