How can I fix battery temperature sensing circuit on the Tab 2 10.1?

In the old battery pack one of the batteries was punctured and slightly inflated on that area. When I tried to charge the tablet the warning of “Charging paused. Battery temperature too high“ without actually getting warm. I changed the battery and the ribbon with charging port and mic, hoping that this was the problem, but i get the same problem: battery temperature is seen constant at 78.4°C and the charge is paused as a security measure.

I searched the web for answers, but I only find the solution of changing the main board.

Can someone provide me the schematics for the charging circuit on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100 and instructions on how to fix it or bridge it so i can get the tablet to charge?

Update (11/04/2018)

I found the service schematics and service manual: link here, but I can not find any information about battery temperature troubleshooting.

Can someone with more experience please point me out the possible troubleshooting information?

I wish a fix or work-around to set a fixed temperature in the range of 5 ° C to 39 ° C so I can charge the tablet.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Have you changed the battery for one that isn’t punctured already? I don’t think charging a battery that has been punctured is good

If so then I don’t know what to tell you, maybe try my favorite, taking out the battery and holding the power button down for 20-30 seconds then release and put the battery back in and try turning it on and charging it

Right now is the new battery inside. I managed to trick the sensor once, by removing the blue wire from battery and putting it back wile the tablet was powered and with the charge cable connected. After that the temperature was a constant of 22°C and managed to fully charge the device, but after reboot the problem came back.


Well let me know if my fix helps at all


Did not helped as it's some sort of hardware related issue... i need a way to overcome that by disabling the hardware from software or some sort of repairing guide.
