    Hi can anyone confirm for me please if when turned off and charging your charging indicator bar on screen is yellow? I'm sure it used to be blue. Thank you.
    Nope,the white tab 2 is yellow but the black tab2 is blue one.

    This worked for me too! Don't know why or how. However, not sure if this will solve the problem permanently as I have tried every single socket in my house previously - it would charge in one for a while, then it stopped and I had to move onto another socket. I've now got to the point where I have taken it into work to charge! This is not ideal (although admittedly cheaper for me!). Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    Guys the solution is simple, change the power adapter whether it's your original one or not, just look for another original or suitable one and you'll be back on. Face same problem and solved it simply by using some one's adapter ( similar Galaxy tab)

    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
    Thanks mate

    I just had same problem this morning, thought that kids finally have broken something on my Galaxy Tab (and they've been using it for last year with no break), but U saved my day


    P.S. I think that source of a problem dates yesterday, when one of my kids laid down on tab when it was charging and completely separated charger parts with this

    The charger is quite sensitive. I was trying to charge it once whilst in a case and the end of their wire (near connector) had to be benrt to accommodate the tab being in the case. The cable stopped working. You can pick up spare cables on Amazon for a few\$ .I've got a spare one now in case it flakes out on me.

    I also read somewhere that if you let the battery drain completely it takes a long time for the tab to power back on.

    Thanks for all of your help everyone. I had this problem and I think I figured out how to fix it. I was at 0% battery and it shut down mid game. The emulator I was playing Phantasy Star IV on drains the battery like crazy even plugged in. When I tried to charge it, it would pull up the battery symbol and it would start to light up just like it's charging, but not getting all the way through the charging cycle. For some reason if it doesn't get enough power to complete the cycle it doesn't charge. What I did was when it was going through the battery charging scene, I unplugged it (this is important) held down on the power button and volume up button for 30 sec to activate ADB - Android Debug Bridge (look it up if you're on a different device). Evidently it takes a miniscule amount of power and shuts everything else down. Then I plugged it in and let it charge This allowed my Tab 2 10.1 to finally charge up enough that it would get through the charging cycles like normal. It's at 10% now in 20 min after spending 2 hours this morning on the charger and getting no where. I'm curious if it would charge it much faster if I always used ADP to charge it. Make sure you have original 2.1 Amp charger with clean contacts always.
    I think it's good to drain the battery down on these devices then recharge them, but don't drain them this much. It's a pain to fix. And no more PS IV for awhile, even plugged in.
    Thanks again everyone for giving me the pieces to fix mine. Good luck everyone!

    So I tried everything what people said. It has nothing to do with the ampage, it has nothing to do with how clean it is. As a person wrote over time the charging plug gets loose and that is because on the plug that goes into the device has one side that has the pins and the other side is what keeps pressure to keep the plug stationary, overtime it starts to separate from itself, so if you notice this happening all you need to do is take your fingers and apply a little bit of pressure to squeeze it together and then place back in the device, now there will be a tight connection. As soon as I tried doing this it instantly worked. This has been a problem for me for sometime, and made me want to not get a samsung in the future, but now that I know the problem can be fixed, I will stick with Samsung.

    I had the same problem, you need a new charger
    Make sure your adaptor is plugged into the wall not an extension cord

    Hi I have had the same issue the way i get around that now is first DON'T LET IT DIE if it does don't worry take it outside plug it into your lighter in your car and leave it for 24 hours and it will charge. I say 24 hours but you can go outside and check it. you will know its charging b/c the battery will fill up as it charges the color whatever it will be i have had orange and now I have blue anyways it will go all the way across. when its not charging it only gives to bars. Don't try to turn it on until its 100 %. This has happened to me several times and this is the only way I could fix it. It wouldn't charge in a outlet or on my computer so goodluck.

    I know this wont be the p.s. for most but I felt pretty stupid when I realized that the plug that plugs into the plug was not actually plugged in. That aside it is absolutely true that using it while charging is the fastest way to ruin this tablet.

    Well after evangelizing Samsung for years to everyone I know and investing in (qty 2) Galaxy Tab 2 10.1"s (as well as a new washer and dryer) I can honestly say I will never purchase a Samsung product again. Starting about a month ago I am experiencing the inability to charge on both of my tablets. Same exact symptoms. Yes I have the two original chargers. Yes I am giving it enough amperage. Nothing has changed except I let them run out of juice completely. They are salvageable but now I have to go through the pain of doing a stupid "hold some buttons and pray" reboot process every time this happens. Every time I do it I seethe over the lack of an update. I did not buy these tablets to have to worry that they might run out of battery and trigger this. After months of dealing with this Samsung has still not issued a fix. Clearly this is on Samsung as the issue is their boot graphics and any running apps it won't shut down when you run out of juice keeps the tablets from charging. I know I am not alone here because there are so many examples of other facing the same issue on every forum I checked. Some people who called Samsung were told to purchase a new tablet. I've had luck with Asus in the past and it looks like I am back with them now. It just so happens I am in the market for 2 new tablets. My only criteria is they not be Samsung branded.

    We had a good thing for a while Samsung. You threw my admiration and loyalty on the rocks.

    It really works, I never heard of ADB but will never forget it now.

    Also, for those with the red x in the lightning bolt while it's turned on, I used anothers advise to fix this one. Plug it in, before the x shows up, pull the plug and reinsert several times, the x will go away. Be warned, if it's turned off completely, the next time you try to charge while turned off you need to do the same plug trick all over again.

    Again, thank you!

    Wow My Galaxy Tablet also wouldn't Charge and I read a few responses on the forum and found out that the problem is the charger. Once I used the charger that came with the Samsung Tab.. It worked... No other charger worked and also couldn't charge it plugged into my computer. It is charging now because of the original charger... Thanks...
