    i had the same thing...but i could not find my charger that came with it so i tryed a few old ones i have{got like 12 of them...and my big ipad charger worked...great right....then my lady ran it all the way down and i could not find my i charger ...so here is a fix thats new....and by new i mean i have hever read about it

    if your laptop or pc has a usb 3.0 prowered port pl:ug it in there...but just untill it starts charging aging...then switch to any charger you have and it will be fine
    seems to be a glitch in the batt charge process so by changing the charging power level it will reset....just one of them little things that **** ya off but its fixable

    Hi, I just had same problem. I was using a seperate usb plug which came with my phone. However the tablet needs a 2amp usb plug to charge properly, if you use a plug with less amps then a red cross will appear on the battery icon. If the battery has drained completely then u need the 2amps to get it to work. The red cross means its charging at a slower rate (which will still charge just takes longer)...so could be because of a loose connection in cable, or the amps used in the plug as already mentioned is too low. Or because of a battery fault in need of repair/replacement. My problem seems to be fixed by using the original charger battery pack and a new cable, the red cross has been replaced with a lighting bolt.

    what i say might seem funny but its freaking true. does someone else in ur family use a samsung phone by any chance????? an ordinary non android phone. if the slot matches with ur tab then plug it in . i got my tab on sunday and bang my tab stopped charging yesturday afternoon. been putiing it on charge continuously it woudnt stand on it self. it onned and offed periodicallly and automatically. then it went flat off. then when i tried to on it it would show a empty battery with a circle spinning in the middle and once in a blue moon it showed the yellow triangle. it went of before i could even read wht it said. then today morning at 5.00 i tried to on i saw the logo screen and then it showed a black screen with things written on it. i was so relieved tht i forgot to read wht it said. i ran to charge it yet it went of as soon as i put it for charging.i was utterly misserable. brand new phone and already it had such problems and all. before it went off i did see two options battery use or ok. i pressed none. by the way i had a brain wave just now. my mom uses a non android utter ordinary phone worth 3500rupees from samsung. i nicked her charger and tried it. bam bam bam bam it workssssssssssssssssssssssssss now my phone is back on and i am alright. now. its charging. i dont understand wht happened but i learnt my lesson i will always charge it n never ever let it go off like that ever again. hope my experience helped u guys. this is actually my first phone bought for me by my mom which is not koreean or indian. its freaking 25K here n i would have been killed if anything happened to it. ehhehehe

    hey, this happened to me too, well not so soon after buying it, i have had mine more than a year now and suddenly last week it died while i was using it and when i plugged in the charger nothing. I dont know what i did but after half and hour it came on, however when i was fully charged it would no longer charge while being used, I had to turn it off. Second time now yesterday it died in the middle of typing, left it on all night and nothing ... i was about to say of sure its done ... but this morning someone on here suggested blowing in the charger area ... its charging on and off now .. i hope it works

    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.
    I LOVE YOU!!!

    Thanks ever so much! You saved me!

    I have tried for two days--nothing helped!

    This was it! (I just don't understand why....)

    The charger needs to be at least 1000 mAh.
    Otherwise it will charge very slowly or won't charge at all when the battery is completely drained.

    Had the same problem, I cleaned it with 90% alcool and a cotton swab, now the battery icon is going all the way up instead of 1/4 up and rebooting. When I looked up further in the charging hole I noticed some corrosion on the metal plate, cleaning it with alcool did it, it is charging now.

    Well I have exactly the same problem, I can charge my tablet when it's off, but when it's on, there's a red cross on the battery.

    Can you explain me what you did exactly?

    Thanks a lot

    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.
    Hello dear all friend never worried its very easy you can clean with cotton nd needle to charge plug inside the indicater of battery see full charged nd remove red * mark ohh god i am very happy now to solved and save my galxy tab

    try plugging it in your laptop/ computer but this time don't plug it in all the way. Only plug it in half way until it says its charging.

    Okay, this may sound strange but trust me it worked! I could no longer charge my Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 with the charger that it came with, 3 other chargers I had in the house nor the computer USB port. The problem is they are not powerful enough to charge a tablet that has become fully drained. After doing some research I found a suggestion to use your car adapter to charge your tablet. So today on my way to work I plugged my tablet into the car adapter and let charge on my way to work. When I got to work (45 minutes later) it had a 43% charge and finally after 2 days turned on. I then took it into work and connected it to a normal charger that I usually use for my Galaxy S3 phone and it's now at 100%; but it took 5 hours to get there.

    The only thing I can suggest is to locate a more powerful home adapter so it will charge your tablet when it's even dead, or let it charge in the car while you drive somewhere. It will be enough to get it out of the totally dead state and allow the home charger to charge it.

    Hope this helps others. Personally I didn't think it would work until I tried it and then researched it some more.

    Same issue, no reply from Samsung?
    Tried the original charger, tried changing chargers,
    Tried blowing into the port which actually worked for one time, and helped me believe in voodoo.
    But the thing won't charge unless turned off, any solution?
