Tablet slow to charge, won't hold charge

Tablet will not charge on regular outlet, I left it overnight and it died completely. It charged through my laptop, but took over 12 hours to fully charge. Lost charge after about 1 hour use playing games. I bought 3 of these and all three have the same problem, so it's not an isolated issue.

SOURCE: My galaxy tablet just went dark. No screen or power. It was more than 50% charged last I looked an hour before. It has been plugged in for 20 minutes now and it won't turn on. What happened??

it depends.. check the battery pack maybe this cause a over charge and check first if your galaxy tablet is still part of the warranty this will help you a lot.

SOURCE: Micro Cruz Tablet Wont hold charge

Well, I think you should change the battery of your tablet PC. You must have charged the tablet for more than enough time several times. so the battery is damaged. or, the battery must be used for a long time!!!!!!

SOURCE: charged sylvania tablet for 24 hours & unplugged it but no power

Many times the cause of this problem is u need a new piece where the charger plugs into the device because it shorts out.

SOURCE: 4 sight tablet fully charge. Did not use for a few hours and had to reset for it to boot up. Happened twice in same day

It is a most likely a battery problem. Or humidity has gotten to it. It even could have over heated. To try to fix, replace the battery or place in a bag of rice if you think it got humidity in it. If none works than it is the software and it malfunctioned.

SOURCE: tablet won't charge

If it's new bring it back on the warantee, if it is out of warantee, check to see if the power supply is putting out the proper voltage at the plug in tip to the Acer. Make sure the tip is put ALL THE WAY into the hole on the acer.

I have a Icraig wireless touch screen tablet model number cmp773-GD , and it won't turn on or charge. Why?


If u just got it return it. your battery is died need new one.tip to make battery last longer. when u get a new battery by itself or it is part of something like a cell phone. do not charge most have half power right out of the box. use battery until it is 100% died.then charge it until full don't over charge. it is a trick to make your battery last long when it has a full charge. never leave battery charging overnight if done to much it makes the battery weak and wont hold charge for long. never leave charging cord plugged in when its not in use. when it is power from the socket is still flowing in the charger which is slowly frying it. that why most people go though up to 4 chargers for each device. i hope this helps have a sweet one!!

My tablet is not charging


Hi,

Does the tablet power on when plugged in?
Have you tried a different power outlet, or a different power adapter?
Does the connector on the tablet seem loose or will the tablet charge if you hold the charging cable firmly to the charging socket?

Depending on your answers, it could be a bad charging port on the device, or a bad power adapter/cable, or a problem with electrical outlets. The remaining option would be a battery problem.

I post on behalf of HP.

My tablet was in use, needed charging, it shut off. Now it won't charge or come on


It sounds like there's a problem with the charger. The wire on the charger is rather delicate. So is the port on your tablet where the wire plugs in. There may be a break inside the wire. If you dropped your tablet while the wire was plugged in and it hit the floor on the charger plug, the charger plug could have damaged the charging port in the tablet or the wire itself could be damaged.
Find someone else who has the same tablet and ask to switch chargers to see if either of them still work on the other tablet. If your friend's charger starts charging your tablet without a problem, then the problem is a a broken wire in your charger. If neither charger will charge your tablet but both chargers charge your friends tablet without a problem, then the problem is with the charging port on your tablet.

After purchasing this product, how long do you have to let it charge before you can turn it on to use it?


First lesson here in charging 101: read your info on what u got. In most of them it tells you to turn it on and use it until the item you got dies then you charge it, you can turn it on if u want to see it charging but don't play on it. An it's best to do when you can watch it, so charging it overnight is NOT good, because it will be done before you wake and over charging is not good. It makes the battery weak so holding a charge gets less and less over time. Never leave your cord in the wall when it's not charging your item. Power from the wall is still running through it and slowly frying it. Thats why people go thought many cords for one item. The reason for the first battery kill and then a full charge is a stronger battery life. It gives your battery about (but don't hold me to it) a 15% increase on life. So back to your question. It depends on the item and battery life it has when u pull it from the box. In most cases battery is about half full. Plus charging from a outlet lets say to a car charging is better and faster for your item. When most battery's are being made and tested in factory's it is a outlet that is being used. So most info on timing a charge is based on info gathered From tests done from a outlet

My samsung galexy Tablet is full charged but not responding when I try to turn it on


Does it do anything at all when you press and hold the power button? Hold the power button in for about 15 seconds. That should force it to reboot.

If you get nothing from doing that, then that usually means one of two things: either the tablet is not charged and the battery is completely depleted, or that the tablet is broken and will not boot. Try charging it with a different cable, try a different charger, or try plugging it into a PC USB port with the PC turned on. Leave it plugged in overnight. It should trickle charge that way and give you enough power to boot up.

Battery charing very slow, can't open tablet - won't turn on when button is pushed


The battery on the Asus does take a very long time to charge (over 12 hours before you use it the first time, then 8 hours or more each time). It takes even longer if you charge it from the USB port in a computer rather than connect it to its dedicated charger, or if you use it while it's charging. If you've already charged it for 8-12 hours, try turning it on by pressing the power button *and holding it down* for a couple of seconds before releasing it. Then, when using the tablet, try keeping it hooked up to the charger when possible, or at least recharge it overnight.

You can check on battery charge by tapping "Settings" at the bottom of the Home screen, then tap "Battery" in the Device category. The % charge will be at the top of the screen. I enjoy my Asus tablet, and it's good for several hours at a time between charges, but you do have to keep it charged up. Good luck!
