    I would try ordering a new charging cable. It sounds like a pin is bad. Try this: Samsung USB Data Cable - Android Chargers & Cables

    The same thing has happened to my tablet too I let it charge and a ''X '' appears on the battery sign and does not charge. Yesterday I tried to charge it and it did work. What I did was stretch the wire a little until it said it ''charging''. It got to charge it and said 40%. Then I was going to sleep so I uncharged it. When I woke up the next day it said it only had 9%. I think its all the chargers that don't work. Hope this helps you...

    Try performing a power reset. Hold the power button for 30 seconds without it being plugged in. Then place your Tab on a home charger for a couple minutes. After a couple minutes, press the power button again for 30 seconds with the charger plugged in. You can also try the suggestions given here: Galaxy Tab 2 Help

    Most of the time, it seems most people find it is a bad cable (not the tab or the charger). If you only have 1 cable, you'll want to buy another. There a several cheap ones online. I think I picked up 3 for $5 The build quality is cheap (seems weaker), but they all work OK.

    Try going to Task Manager, clear Ram and then plugin the charger and try again. This has worked for me but not all of the time

    My Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 stopped charging today. As all the battery was drawn out so when I plugged for recharge it was continuously rebooting after showing one bar of battery. I was using the original cable that came with the tab few years back. I checked this thread and it appeared that the cable is bad and most of the people fixed it by changing the cable. So I decided to attempt cable clean up for any dust inside. I took my regular aftershave lotion and rinsed both sides (connector and USB) in the lotion. Then I used air pressure to dry it out. I reconnected after few hours and it worked just as new and my tab is now charging.
