Hi,

Does your tab perform correctly if you have it connected to the charger and the charger is switched ON?

If not can you try another charger? If the new one works your old charger is faulty. Allow the new charger to charge the battery and then see how it works on battery alone.

If it does work on your old charger, then you either have a faulty battery or a faulty charging circuit in your tab.

If this is the case suggest you check your warranty and if still valid contact the manufacturer.

Here is a link to the service manual if you are interested.

I've gone through four of these, the local store is begining to think I might be doing someting wrong. It has been found on the interwebs that the battery controller is the culprit. My last one, everything was absolutely fine - dont' get me wrong this is a beautiful peice of fine craftsmanship however with one little flaw the dream turns into a nightmare. It's like carrying a 7" inch PC - yes it's a PC (intel x86 Atom QuadCore) so you dont' have to go to an App Store (like all the other Android/iOS) like other toys and simply install anything made for a PC! USB-ON-THE-GO. the only downside of this device was the RAM memory only being 1 GB, if that was around 3GB I would keep buying them until one lasts forever. It seems a bit rare as well this kind of device, how many 7" PCs that you can carry around in your back pocket exist out there...? :)
