okey now we'r talking

so first of all you can check the USB port on your tablet becouse you said "Wal-Mart" it makes me kinda suspicious (i don't think your tablet is a piece of $@$* but hey it's suspicious)

if you have some lens like 30x or 50x(or 10x and good eyesight ...mine is really bad (at 18y old.....)) or microscope or anything look at your USB port if there is some crap inside or anything suspicious try to take it out (with non-conductive thingy (don't use metal (or be extreamly carefull!)))

if it dosen't still work and there is nothing inside (or something that makes you think...)

what you can do is to open up your tablet and check the port again (if it wiggles or so....)

you can also check the baterry itself and try to reconnect it and check the cables....(i don't think there is an issue..)

also you can try to wiggle the USB lead in your tablet and it may start charge (just wiggle it arround and check whatever it makes diffrence

there could be some of the component's on the PCB blown or damaged (just check it few times )

i have heard that sometimes components blow and the line from charging circuit to battery is open (no connection) but that's on iphones...(could be on your tablet...)

have you tryed to google ?

if anything on the PCB is blown or damaged you will need to do Level 3 repair...

as i said check for damages and try to wiggle the cable arround

if you have warranty take it back to the store again, it's easy

also hit thanks if i helped

mine wont come on, rca says to send it in, will take weeks to get back/new only 3 wks old, past return to store, and cant afford to ship & ins. its not acceptable, that i now am without the tab, the $, and at this point, patience. seems rca must be aware of the issue, and know the fix, some of us can and would just do ourselves if needed, and been much happier with the co. shame on rca

I was having an issue where even when plugging in my tablet using a cell phone charger it wouldnt take charge, but the blue LED would come on to indicate it was getting power. Turns out the issue is the charger I was using wasn't providing sufficient power. I looked on the tablet and saw it required a charger that provides 5 volts at between 1.5 and 2.0 amps; the charger I was using was only providing 5 volts and 1.2 amps. When I plugged in with a charger providing 1.6 amps it immediately displayed the battery charging icon on the screen and allowed me to power the tablet on like normal.
