    Thank you for your reply. I'm guessing then that because mine has Jelly Bean 4.1.1 installed out of the box, they changed it to a gold colour indicator when it charges instead of the blue one I remember from a previous Tab 2 I owned.

    Pleasure. Think you are right about Jelly Bean. See a lot of posts about the "gold" battery/Charge indicator all on JB units

    I would like to say that it has been happening to me too! Been about three weeks now, but it always turned on for me.

    A couple of things that works for me.

    1. When there is a RED cross on the battery icon, I turn off the tablet (whenever it's not in use) and let it charge.
    *when the RED cross appears it still chargers but VERY SLOWLY.

    2. I have a lot of time on my hands, so sometimes I just sit there and mess around withnthe plug and charger.
    *whenever I put one side of the charger into the tablet it shows the charging signal.

    3. When the tablet is Completely dead, I let it sit on the charger for a good 2 hours.
    *VERY low battery life still but, I always manage with it.

    -The methods dont always work. SO no guarantee that it will work for everyone. Like I said, I have A LOT of time on my hanfs. -

    I hope this helps at least some of you.

    i had the same problem. You are probably using the wrong ubs cable.

    Originally i had an ubs cable manufactured by t mobilr and was able to use car charger. It was messed up, when i bought a samsung
    Ubs cable and tried car charger it gave me a charhe icon with red cross.

    My galaxy tab10.1, stays more than 30hrs to get fully charged. After that the battery drains quickly.

    What can i do to get it back to normal again as now am not enjoying it anymore.
    Have only used it for barely 6months now

    I had this same problem. I called Samsung, they had me try a couple of solutions. None of them worked, so I had to send it in for repair. It was under warranty, and the ticket said the symptom was CHARGER, ADAPTER DEFECT. They replaced the defective part. I should be receiving it back tomorrow (less than 2 weeks turnaround). Reading here, seems like it's a common problem. I'll see how it works out.

    P.S. - Another thing - the guy who helped me on the phone at Samsung said that it should be charged directly from the wall, not through a surge protector.

    SOLVED !!!,! Im so happy today my tablet is finally charging! Ive had the lil red x over my battery for weeks now when I was lucky enough to actually have it on. When it would die I would get the awful two orange bars on a dead screen that would shut off.

    This is what I did, with a dry q-tip and tweezers I very very gently cleaned some dirty grime that was in my tablets charge thingy. Plugged it in but still just the two orange bars. I waited and played w the power button and volume down button. Still nothing. Tonight for the heck of it I pressed VOLUME UP about ten times really quick. Then tapped the power button AND VOILA THE BATTERY CHARGED AND NO MORE RED X EITHER, hope this helps some of all.

    the gold bar means that you have downloaded the latest Jelly bean on your handset.

    Hi Raunaq.

    I was having similar problem. I was getting red cross also. It would only charge if device swithched off. I purchased an official car charger for my galaxy(from ebay) and swapped the cable from the car using the original wall charger and it works, no more red cross.the device is on and is charging if you like i will send you the ebay link where i purchased it from , Ithink it cost approx 9 pounds im thinking of buying another cheers. i hope this heps

    Hi

    I bought Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 last month and now it is not getting charged. It is giving the indication of the Charging, even i keep for a hr for charging this getting charged for 12% etc.. and when I am using the tab the power went off quickly. Can any one suggest the solution. Does it allow me to return it? I really fed up with this device.
    Thanks

    Recently I was having the same problem with the red x over the charging symbol. A couple people said to blow into the charging port on the tablet but that didnt. I blew into all pieces the end of the charger itself, the usb end, and on the wall piece of the charger where the usb goes into it. That worked for my it took five or six trys so dont give up.

    HI, I have this problem and it was driving me nuts. I have found a work round though. If you turn the tablet of completely and then turn it back on, it should charge whilst on. Worked for me. Hope this helps
