    You aren't the only one having this issue with a Samsung tablet. I would first ensure that there's no debris or visible damage in the charging port on the tablet, and I would also turn it off and see if you can charge it while off (some people noted the ability to do so).

    If you go to re-flash anything, I would ensure that you re-download (and flash) both the ROM and kernel. If the latter is included in the package for the former, that's fine.

    I had this problem too. Just plug the charger in a different outlet, that worked for me

    Make sure you are using the Charging block that came with it. If I use any other charger I get teh red x or even if I hook to my laptop.

    I just encounteted the same problem. Red x appears when charging. I switched it off to charge. It charged half over night. I went to swap wall sockets when I noticed the usb was slightly out from the plug, as I was gaming on it the night before and yanking on the power cable without realising. I pushed it in tight and all is good. Check it may be what you are experiencing. Good luck fellas.

    The red cross indicates that your plug I probably faulty. If you are using the factory supplied charger this won, t happen.

    Hello guys, it is not a problem in tablet.
    Laptop gives output 5v dc and 500ma current, but tab needs atleast 1100ma to charge battery. That is the reason why battery shows red x on battery that means battery not charging with your input supply. When powered with original wall charger, it takes 2000ma from charger then it will charge with out showing red x on battery.
    With regards by Raj.

    Hi, I'm using the Galaxy Tab 2 and experiencing the same issue. It started while I was using the original charger. One day I plugged it in, it told me the battery was not charging and had the little red x over the battery symbol. It's slowly getting worse, whereas before it would gain like 2% an hour, it's nownot gaining anything unless i switch it off and even then it takes a good 10 hours to fully charge. I've changed the charger to no avail. Must admit I haven't yet tried changing the power outlet. If that doesn't work I guess it's off to the insurance people to see what they can do!

    I too had the problem with the red "x" showing on the battery indicator when attempting to charge my Note 10.1 2014. I tried different official Samsung USB cables and bases which didn't help me. I also tried cleaning the USB port of the tablet which didn't work either. I noticed that when I'd take the back cover off the tablet, it would charge normally without showing that red "x" but if I tried putting the cover back on, the "x" would pop up again. What seemingly fixed the problem for me was disconnecting and reconnecting the battery cable. I also disconnected the ribbon cables for the LCD and USB port in the process of disconnecting the battery cable but I don't think that fixed the problem.

    If there is "x" mark on the battery and it does not show as "charging" then it implies that the battery has not charged to a minimum extent (or say threshold). Switch of the tab and charge for about an hour or so. Then switch on the tab, you can the charging symbol.Just give it some time with charging on, and it will be fine.

    I had the same problem with my Galaxy note 10.1 N8000 Tablet and I figured that the battery charges VERY slowly when the tablet is on with the red X sign and also charged while the tablet is off. I had another Samsung Tablet 2 7" and i just swapped the cables of their chargers and then it worked just fine. It seems that the cables were different and i swapped them without noticing. So now it charges correctly with no problem as long as i'm using the cable shipped with it.

    Hope this would help

    Actually it will happen with a factory charger. It happened with my daughters tablet. The factory charger is the only charger she has, it started doing it every so often and now it won't charge at all. I have tried other wall outlets and I tried the charger from my Samsung Galaxy S4. Nothing has worked.
