Device confusing power cable for an MTP and wont charge?

I was intermittently getting a red cross over the battery icon coupled with a "MTP initialization" message when I would plug in the power cable to the device.

Im now getting this all the time preventing me from charging the unit.

I have no idea whats going on with it. Am dreading having to take it somewhere and how much that may cost me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Is this a good question?

Danielle Rush, the first thing to try would be to reset your tablet's factory settings. Try a different cable as well. If that does not work, then it is possible that this is caused by dust, dirt, corrosion or other contamination of the USB port. Use some isopropyl alcohol and some compressed air and clean out the port. Do not stick anything in it since that my bend the pins. Lastly, it is possible that some pins of the micro-usb port have been disconnected from board so the tablet does not receive charge, and it mistakes the connection as a computer instead of a charger. This would require a disassembly and a possible resolder of the micro USB port. The MTP scanner is the media scanner that runs when the tablet thinks it might be plugged into a computer instead of a charger. More information about that on here. Hope this helps, good luck.

I held the power button down for 1 min. Plug the charger in. Held the power button down for 30sec. Now the red x is gone and it's charging.

when the red cross is over the battery it will still charge when the screen is asleep. But not when u are using it. this happened to my tab. I bought a new cable/lead and it works perfectly
