    Same thing happened to my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 after it got completely flattened. I tried the button technic but nothing happened. After trying to charge it on the laptop for hours I decided to plug it into the wall and straight a way it began to charge

    Hi guys,
    I've been having a slightly different problem. I got my galaxy tab 2 fpr christmas last year, works a treat but for the last month or two, I haven't used it so I'd assume I've run the battery flat out dead. I put it on charge last night but the little battery charging icon didn't load or come up, but I continued to leave it plugged in all attempted to turn it on this morning and notitem I've gone to try again this morning with a different charger and still nothing. Anyone got any ideas or suggestions please?

    FINALLY worked it out!! I have tried all the different methods to get a dead battery charging again, holding down power button 30 sec, volume, home etc, but none worked. What I had to do was to warm the tablet up. You need to warm the battery so it will excite and take a charge again. With mine I put it face down on a blanket then placed my laptop on top so the heat from the laptop warmed the tablet. It is slow but it is taking a charge again. Mine was completely flat!!!!
    If you dont have a latptop just use blankets to cover it completely. It will slowly heat and start taking a charge.

    Same problem with mine too! It would start to charge then turn off and not charge so I plugged it into my car charger it didn't work but I remembered I had another car charger in the trunk so I grabbed it and plugged the usb in it and immediatly it started charging both car chargers are fine but I guess only one of em had 12v power so that one worked.. wish samsung woukd fix this common issue but I noticed it happens when the tablet goes dead.

    Seems like a bad wall charger for sure. My spouse was having a problem charging his tab 2, I used the wall charger from my tab 3 and it started charging immediately as well as powered on.

    In response to Rob 1908 and stephanie_pierce (and anyone else whose galaxy tab won't turn on and won't charge)...
    My daughter had the same problem. Based on the information in this thread, she connected it to a car charger today (cigarette lighter adapter to usb) and it now turns on. She's waiting to see if it's really charging, but at least it will turn on while plugged in.
    Update 6 hours later ...no apparent luck with the car charger approach. Trying the various button press approaches next.

    My tab 3 purchased in October 2013 but not used until December died completely after the second day of use and wouldn't charge at all. I sent it gack to Samsung through the repair process and received it working very well and now charging with a work order that stated software replacement.
