Tablet not charging while plugged in

Turned off the tablet, unplugged the charger and kept the tablet off for about 30 minute to one hour, plugged in back the charger, then turn on the tablet. After that I you might see the tablet started charging. Good Luck.

My nextbook 8 runs well if I leave it plugged into the charger but shuts off soon after unplugging even with a full charge.

It could be the battery is already on its end of life. Could be, your charger can't deliver enough power to work and charge the tablet. Before you start worrying, please leave the tablet on a charger over night, with everything switched off. Then remove it from the charger and start it. If you keep having the same problem, and you can't check the quality of the battery, start saving for a new tablet. Not worth paying 100 dollar for replacing the battery, if you can buy a new tablet for the same price. If you can open the tablet, check if the battery is still connected correct.

My tablet saya charged but when I unplug it turns off

Perhaps only the rechargeable battery is on its end of life? or your charger is not capable to give enough power to charge the battery and drive the tablet at the same time.
If you only could charge the battery once , while it is not connected, that could give an indication of its condition, when you start using it.
Sure you are charging the tablet with an original charger? Like they delivered with the tablet?

I turn my tablet on then it switches it self off

Sounds like it does not have enough battery power to stay on. If you have not tried to charge it, you should try that first. If you have, it sounds like it is not getting charged or not holding a charge. Could be bad AC power source, bad charger, bad charger connection or bad battery. Take steps to confirm that each of these are good. If all of these are good, sometimes the tablet can become so discharged that it will not allow itself to charge. When they are in that state, sometimes you can trick them into charging again by repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting the charger as follows: With charger plugged in to AC power source, connect the charger to the tablet. Pay attention to the screen or LED or whatever indicator your tablet has to let you know it is charging. You may see it momentarily indicate charging, or maybe not at all. Then unplug the charger from the tablet then immediately plug it back in and pay attention for the charge indication again. You may have to do this a bunch of times (like 20) until you see the indication that it is charging. When you do get the indication, stop unplugging and re-plugging and let the tablet charge for 24 hours (to a full charge). This trick doesn't always work. Sometimes the battery or charging circuit or an internal connection is bad and no amount of unplugging/re-plugging will fix a hardware problem.

Why is my Android tablet turning off when I unplug the charger?

The battery is broken. Get a new Tablet or pay $$$ for replacement and even more $$$$ for backup.
