    Remove the SIM card. Airplane mode disables cellular. If that doesn't happen, consider the tablet destroyed. (You sprayed something other than alcohol - the fix for a wet phone is to immerse it in alcohol. Alcohol doesn't damage tablets. Look at the ingredients carefully - there's something else in there. [70% alcohol is 30% water. 90% and higher alcohol is safe. Drinking-type alcohol is death to electronics.])

    If airplane mode isn't working it's likely you damaged your tablet and it's a hardware problem at this point. Something shorted out and is draining the battery.

    Thanks for helping me.
    I want to know how i can disable cellular driver.
    In PC when a module has problem we go to windows device manager and disable it and then no electricity receive to that device.
    If android do not request any hidden and background about cellular it will not any battery usage.
    Please say where is file of cellular data drivers.

    Android is not Windows and does not function the same way, you can't disable drivers like that. Google/Samsung don't give you access to disable something like that.

    Even if you could, that is a software level disable which is the same thing airplane mode does, so I doubt it would actually stop the power draw.

    Hello all.
    Thanks tried help me.
    My problem solved.
    (Cell standby) was eating all battery in a few hours! I saw an Iranian forum. and read why cell standby eat all charge of battery even though airplane mode is on!
    I do these and problem solved:
    1) airplane mod must be on.
    2) mobile hotspot must be off.
    3) settings > wi-fi > off > more > Always allow scanning > scan only while wi-fi is on = enable (not scan always).
    4) no app must request simcard and cell all must disable so disable some message options.
    5) Messages app > more >more settings > Push messages = off
    6) Messages app > more >more settings > multimedia messages > (auto retrieve = off) and ( read and delivery reports = off)
    7) Messages app > more >more settings > text messages > (delivery reports = off)

    Now each time i charge several days works.
