Samsung Tablet wont turn on or charge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've not used my tablet in about 2 weeks and now it won't turn on or even charge . I've been googling for hours trying everything I can think of.
  • Holding the power button for 60 seconds.
  • Holding power and volume down button for 60 seconds.
  • Holding both volume up and volume down for 60 seconds.
  • opening the back and re-seating both the battery cable and charging port cable.
  • Multiple charging cables used from different outlets (I live with a lot of other Android users so have tried a wide range. can also confirm these work on my Mums Samsung tablet and my Samsung phone.)

Now I am completely out of ideas.

The tablet is a Galaxy Tab S 8.4 - SM-T700 which I bought in September 2014.

Is it possible that a battery can 'die' without first showing signs of degradation? - and if it had, would that cause the tablet to act completely dead? Surely it would look like its at least trying to charge - a red charge LED or something? I'm not sure. Any ideas or suggestions would be really appreciated.

Thank you

I had a similar issue with a Samsung tablet that I had not used in awhile. I just left if plugged into the charger over night, the next day it showed charging, took over 24 hours to charge, but seems to work fine now. So if you haven't left it on the charger for long, give that a try.

I had the same issue with two samsung tablets including the 8.4. In both cases i had to replace the charging wires with samsung original wires and they worked.
