Try to replace battery (maybe it's a defective one). If the problem persists you are to replace device itself. No recent glitches in official ROMs reported.

My battrey is not charging

1) is the power source active (some wall sockets have a switch to render power there inactive -Australia)
2) is the charger plugged into an active power strip or an active wall socket?
3) is the charger damaged?
4) how long has the cell phone been charging? If the battery was completely discharged, it may take a bit for it to show a screen of it charging.
5) if the battery will not accept a charge, it will have to be replaced. Lithium batteries retain longer life spans if you charge them when power level is down to about 20 percent, NOT when they are completely discharged.
6) Better write down the battery number and amps when you pull the battery and keep it with phone documentation.

I have a samsung galaxy s3 phone and it will not hold a charge. IF it charges to 100% and says charge complete, as soon as I unplug it from the charger it drops to like 40%.

The charge circuitry in your phone is not functioning. That's a factory repair. Go to Samsung's website and start a repair ticket.

Why is my galaxy tab2 shut down and not turning

You have a contact issue with your battery. ..even plugging it in you must have a good connection with the battery. I would try this take a piece of cardboard or paper and fold and wedge it in between the battery and the outer edge of the battery recess not where the gold colored terminals are located. Sometimes the battery don't make proper contact and this will ensure that it does. After doing this plug it in and let it charge for a while. When the icon for the charging battery gets to about the middle of the battery then hold down the on button until the icon disappears let go of the button and see if it works ok

New Samsung Galaxy Note 10.0 battery life and charging time

Sounds normal to me!!
The further away from wifi router you are the more power is needed by the wifi card.... etc etc so the 8 hours is in perfect conditions with the screen brightness at minimum and no apps running!! It's safe to say that, whatever battery life is quoted for any device you should only expect to acheive half that in the real world.
The screen is prob responsible for 80% of the battery's power drain. Turn the brightness down. Stay in same room as router. close down un-used apps that demand cpu and network (wifi card) time.
Shut it down completely when charging don't just let slip into standby. Also don't charge it on a cold or hot place such as a window sil. To high or low tempretures will increase charge time and will damage the battery lowering it's capacity.

Charging problem

Let it drain completely, then recharge-it fully & downlooad App killer, application manager. You may be running unnecessary programs in the background. If that doesn't work, take it back to the dealer

Cant charge it

there could be a few things that caused this however the battery has a fault. The charging system is based on a feedback loop. If the battery has a fault this loop is interrupted to prevent further damage to the battery or device. Do you charge this via a USB cable or wall charger? If you use a wall charger there could be a possibility that the transformer or regulator inside the charger was damaged. Hope this helps. If you knew someone with a volt meter you could check that problem quickly. The probability of that happening though is much lower than the battery failing.
