My Tablet is blinking when not charging or under 16%

My Samsung Galaxy Tab A is blinking. And it only happens when NOT charging or under 16% battery also it sometimes just shuts off by it self. I heard about fixes for "My tablet is not charging", but for me it's charging perfectly it's just blinking. Is there any fix or should i just get a new one.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This issue is usually caused by a physically damaged / worn charging port or the battery itself.

Charging port requires soldering so for that one you will need to take it to a repair shop that does Samsung Tablets.

For the battery it is user replaceable and fairly cheap to do. $15.

Here are link to parts and guide from iFixit:

A red blinking notification LED light at the top left only when charging usually means that the device thinks that the battery temperature is too low.

This is usually a fault caused by a component like a thermistor (temperature sensor) in the charging circuit sometimes from liquid damage or damage on the charging port itself.

But I don't think that is the case as it would usually say 'Battery temperature too low. Charging paused' and the device would actually stop charging with a blinking battery icon.

Does it charge fine while it's turned off? anyway it's probably just the battery in your case.
