I am looking for a solution on a charging issue I have on a Samsung SMP605V. When my tablet is powered up and I plug in a cable (any cable I have tried) it will start charging and within a short time it will stop. IF the tablet is powered off, it will charge without fail fully but it takes 10-16 hours to fully charge a dead battery. Struggling to think this would be a usb issue since it will work when off even slowly.

Every once in a while, it will charge while on, but it takes a long time as well.

Any help you can provide?

You should use an USB voltage tester to see if your tablet is drawing correct charging current: around 1.5 to 1.7 Amps. If it’s under 1.5 Anps, you should try new USB flex charging port, around $6.
If you know how to fix things, then try it. Otherwise don’t because I see many users cause more damages than fixing simple problem.: like breaking the touchscreen or connector on main board

However, the completed fix should be the rework of battery connectors
