Re: battery not charging
Are you using the charger that came with the tablet? If you are using a cell phone charger...it will not work. The tablet charger is rated for 2.1 A. Most cell phone chargers are rated for less than 1 A.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Stephanie, could be a faulty charger or battery, try and borrow a friends charger if you can and try and see if it charges then you know your charger is bad, if it does not charge the your battery needs replaced.
PRESS THE HELPFUL BUTTON
Assuming that you charger is not defective, and that you have no other electrical issues, then if your battery has been allowed to completely flat line, it may no longer accept a charge from the normal wall charger. Then you can try to trickle charge your tablet from a low voltage/current source, such as a USB port or a low power phone charger (5v/500ma). Try a trickle charge for 8 - 24 hours on your tablet. After that try your normal charger and see if it will now charge properly.
If that does not work, and you have previously ruled out your charger, then I would suggest contacting the manufacturer, as it is likely some other fault, either with the battery, or the tablet itself.
This happened to my iPad. When I discovered that there were many programs open, I closed them and it charged.
hope this works for you as it did for me. Some one told me that it was a good idea to plug the tablet to a computer and charge it that way.
best learn the principles of your tablet first
first when a battery is less than 10% it takes up to 5 hours to recharge not 5 minutes
next many tablets do not recharge when in operation so you have to shut down to allow the recharge to work
because the battery was dead flat , of course it will reset as that is the same as removing or installing a new battery
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.
It sounds to me as if your battery is faulty. No way should it take 17 hours to charge. The battery is abviously not absorbing the charge and this could be because one or more cells are defunct. You can just wait until it fails completely or look at getting a replacement before this happens.
