Plug it in to a USB on your pc or laptop. Let it charge for 1 hour then try holding in the power button while it is still attached to the computer.

for some reason samsung tablets like the charge from a computer or laptop better than mains power.

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

SOURCE: SAMSUNG GALAXY TABLET NOT CHARGING OR TURNING ON

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

Battery on M532 absolutely refused to charge from flat.Tablet worked when plugged in so I downloaded an app killer from android market and killed all but the essential apps then tried again and it seemed top work! Maybe background apps draining battery at faster rate than could be charged?

How to get my battery to charge. plugged it into charger and will not charge. had it on the charger all night and still at same percentage


Check the charger and cable if they are not originally coming with the unit itself.

If they are aftermarket, check if they both on their own can support 2A charging current. For the adapter, its rated ampage should be on the label by ampere. For the cable itself, it must be a SAMSUNG tablet compatible one.

The charge dock on tablet broke so we can not charge tablet can it be fixed? We just got it this October.


Juello. Did some research on your tablet at Amazon, (http://amzn.to/1xWx6S5) and see that they also have an AC charger (AC charger adapter with a 3.5mm power jack and delivering 5VDC 2A). Available for $5: iRulu Black AC Home Wall Adapter Cable Charger for Tablet PC 5V 2000mAh or a there's a nice replacement KB and cover: iRulu New Portable 10 1 10 5 Android Tablet USB Keyboard Case Black . I would guess the connector snapped off inside the tablet, so you will have to remove it with some tweezers. If the pin for the AC adapter broke off inside the tablet, that's a problem, but most everything can be charged from the USB port too see this website:

Table is freeze, I can not do anything. What can I do?


Android 3.x ??? It "crashes" easily due to buggy software. Just turn the thing off for 10 seconds or so and then turn it back on. Really, that's all you can do until Google fixes the bugs that caused the problem in the 1st place.
