Why is my tablet not charging?

Couple weeks ago my galaxy tab 10.1's power is 1%, then i shut it down. After that i charged my tab and left it a couple of minutes, but when i see the charging bar it dosent gain power. it keeps going back n fort for hours but still it didnt fill up to the middle. After that this happend link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fW48hGB7...

But i solved it by pressing hold the power button in 1 min(30 sec, plug in charger,30sec release power button.)

you can see that procedure on the video's comments.

P.S

pls find a way because im so desperate. I cant afford to fix or buy another battery. My parents are strict

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Far out it worked for me too....i laughed and felt stupid doing it but its amazing. Some people i know might get some life into them if i blow into their ears....worth trying!

I thought this was stupid, but I gave this a try and it works. I feel dumb that I didn't think of that, but hey, it works! Try this out.

Sometimes there is lint inside. A super fine toothpick or something can get it out. Just aim for the lint and not the gold pins cause you can damage them.

Why not just order a new charge port and replace it? Just got one fixed at the store I work at. Her tablet charges fine now!

It's a super easy repair. Hardest part is removing outer shell. Once inside. Super easy.

My tablet screen is black. I can't tell if it's charging and I don' really have a computer to plug it into, I know the cord is all good, plug good... Did the volume button trick, nothing. Took the back off but very leary of taking the battery out, looks like it's taped in. Galaxy tab pro 10.1

Anyone there? How long will it take to generate the answer on how to safely remove the battery

by

I don't know about the pro. But use tweezers to GENTLY peel back the tape starting at a corner. It shouldn't be too hard to remove and I bet the battery is screwed in place. Also try searching the site for a tear down that might help you see how the battery comes out. Or search your model number along with "battery removal" using your favorite search engine.

"generate the answer"? I thought iFixit was a portal to people who like to fix things and also share the knowledge and experiences voluntarily, - not a maintenance/consultant service working 24/7 to solve everthing for free...

by

His English isn't the best there lol. I don't get what you mean though about the maintenance/consultant service comment..

I have no idea if this is the correct place to ask a question but I'm at my wits end.. A few weeks ago my tablet fell below 10% for the first time in the 2yrs iv had my Samsung tab4 10.1 and it cut off completely so I done the suggested soft reset..

things were fine for a week until my tablet sent the 'low batt' msg while plugged in.. it was then I saw the big red cross through the battery sign..

I have soft reset

updated software

hard reset

replaced battery

tried new cable

old cable

new and old sub plug

and whole unit plug

into wall and extension

and new charging port and battery with expensive genuine Samsung replacements.. prayed to the heavens I would turn it on and all would be ok.. but... NO! exactly the same!! there isn't anything on my tablet it's used to watch my programmes on show box etc.. please some one help! any advice I'd be grateful for..

kindest regsrds

Just push the usb charging port together to tighten the port where the usb goes in but be gentle then plug it into your pc and leave it for a hour or so go back to it turn it on and it will be charging mines nearly fully charged it works awesome I did this for my galaxy s6 because the charging port was loose and it worked fine so I did the same procedure to my tablet hope this works for you as it worked for me
