    It just recently started doing it last night and now won't work unless it is connected to the charger cord. I have tried clearing the cache partition, and even did a factory reset, and it still doesn't make any difference. Battery power is at full.

    Welcome to Android Central! I agree with mustang7757. If the battery has failed and no longer holds a charge, it might still report that it's full, but as soon as you unplug it, it quickly discharges. You'd have to bring it to a repair shop to replace the battery, or check to see if there are any problems with internal connections.

    And if it's the original Tab 3, released in mid-2013, it's amazing that the battery lasted this long. 3 years is good. 4 is great. 6¼ is almost unbelievable.

    It was a Christmas gift last year from my parents, and I believe it is the original. My wife and I are possibly considering investing in a new tablet, if we aren't able to get this one fixed. How much would a typical diagnostic and battery replacement cost, if that were the issue?

    Hi, welcome!
    That would depend on the repair shop but expect replacement anywhere from 80 to 180 dollars . Call around few different ones get a price quote.

    you may also want to look at youtube videos and see if there is one for replacing the battery. see if you can do it yourself.
