    Hello Everybody. This is my first post but I've often folowed the forum for bits and pieces.
    I got a Galaxy tab 3 last October and love the device. However, charged it last night and it wouldn't charge. Plugged in the wall charger and the USB but neither worked. Normally you get the animaton and a beep when the device is off but don't even get that. Turned the device on and even 'on' it doesn't recognise it's plugged in. Tried the cable with different phones etc works ok. Tried different cables that I know work on the tab and it doesn't charge with any.

    So. Google is your friend. I've spent the last few hours turning off and on the tab with combinations of power button 10 20 30 60 seconds with volume up and down etc. Finger on/off screen. Blah blah blah. The funny thing is, even when other users with similar problems have rebooted, they hold down the power button and the device resets the battery. When I do the same it just continuously tries to boot.
    Even tried a factory reset but didn't do much good. Only got 18% left now so Ive turned it off.
    Has anyone had the same problems and found a fix or should I panic?
    FYI updated to kitkat recently and the device has since been slow.

    Thanks for any help

    Welcome to Android Central! I know you did a factory reset, but try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition. The steps should be the same as for the Tab 2: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...2-s3-tab2.html

    Also, if you have an SD card inserted, unmount it (Settings>Storage​), remove it, and reboot. A corrupt SD card can cause various issues.
