The charger has a function that restores the battery operation parameters by discharging then charging the battery a number of times. Refer to charging instructions in the pack but I think the cycle is a 3 hourly one, time to charge from a full discharge. If the charger thinks the battery is dead then it will try to recover the battery using this process. You may have left the charger on long enough to charge then also discharge the battery.
Start again and charge for the time in the instructions ONLY, if you are not sure of the time try it for an hour, then without disconnecting the charger turn the unit on and take particular note of any screen messages, if any.
You should be able to continue as normal now, but still be aware of the time you are leaving the charger connected for, as it may take some time before it returns to normal operation and stops trying to recover what it thinks is a dead battery.
Are you sure the charger is working correctly? When you plug the charger into the tablet and into the wall, then leave it alone for half an hour, does the charger feel at all warm? Is there power to that outlet, or is it a switched outlet (like one used for a lamp)?
If the charger feels warm after half an hour, does the back of the tablet also feel warm? It may actually be charging.
If the charger is dead cold (same temperature as a table) and you're sure that it's plugged into a good outlet and correctly plugged into the tablet, then it's a good bet that the charger is dead & you need to find another.
Can you also charge that tablet with a USB cable connected to a PC? That'd be a good test. Try doing that - if that ALSO will not charge the tablet, then there may be a problem with the tablet itself.
There are a few things you can try (you may have done some of them already):
It may seem simple, but try plugging your charger into another outlet.
Check the charging connector on the phone. Make sure that it's free of any dirt that could be blocking the connection to the charger.
Buy another charger. If it doesn't help, return it afterward.
It could be the battery itself that's dead. You could try looking for a replacement battery, but that may be harder to return if it doesn't help. You could also try taking the battery out, and then plug in the charger... some phones (very few) will work without the battery, but this will tell you right away if it's the battery.
The charging port on the phone itself could be loose. Try jiggling it with the charger connected to it.
The charging port could be dead or there could be some other type of electrical issue with the phone (water damage, maybe, or something else).
