USB cable not recognised when tablet is on
First time posting as I normally find the solution to my problem, however this one has me stumped.
I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and everything was working fine.
I went on holidays and took it with me. A week later, came back and plug it into my laptop to download photos that are on it.
Both the PC and the tablet don't seem to recognise the cable is plugged in. I thought the cables might have gone bad, however, when I turn off the tablet, it charges fine.
I had a similar problem with my Galaxy Nexus phone, it what I had to do was actually bend the thin piece in the micro-usb slot of my phone and it worked. Tried doing it with the tablet and it doesn't.
I saw that there is another thread that has the issue of "charging only when tab is off", however I believe that my issue is different, as I don't see a red cross and my PC and tablet don't recognise a connection at all.
Thanks in advance.
