Is your Samsung tablet not charging and you’re about to lose your mind?
Before you do that, read some of the below fixes which should hopefully fix the Samsung table won’t charge issue.
These fixes have been compiled after hours of research and works for all Samsung Tablet models from the Samsung Tab 1 to the Samsung Tab 6. Lets begin!
Samsung Tablet Not Charging – Complete Guide! (7 TIPS)
1. Reset Your Samsung Tablet
One of those most successful ways to get your Samsung Tab to charge is by trying a reboot/reset method.
While there is only “1 standard method” for doing this, there have been several other alternatives (see below) which also seem to have much success. Also note that no data will be lost in these methods.
Traditional Reset Method
For a normal reset which typically removes any software glitches, you’ll want to press the volume down button and the power button together for 30 seconds simultaneously.
If this doesn’t work, you can also try the pressing and holding the volume up button and the power button together for 30 seconds.
Disconnect Charger Method
This step has a few extra steps, but it seems to work great!
1. Disconnect charger from Samsung Tab
2. Press and hole the power button + volume up button for 30 seconds
3. While still holding, then plug in Samsung charger
4. Continue to hold buttons for another 30 seconds
5. Now release power button ONLY and keep pressing the volume up button
While this is a bit of an odd fix, it should hopefully let your tablet now charge again!
Micro SD Charger Method
Here is another extension of the above methods that have also been known to work quite well.
1. Remove Micro SD from the tablet
2. Press powers button + volume down button together for 20-30 seconds
2. Use a Rapid Charger
If your Samsung tablet is hovering around the 5% charge mark but refuses to increase in charge, then this might be the fix for you!
For those that have a never Samsung Tab 6 or 7, you should have a rapid charger included in your box. Simply plug in this charger which should hopefully get the tablet out of the dormant battery mode.
3. Try a Different Charger Or Even An Apple Charger
If your Samsung tablet is still not charging, it may be the charging adapter to blame.
To see if this is the case, try and charge your tablet from another charger from a friend or family member. By doing this, you will be able to pin point whether it is the charger of tablet at fault.
For an added step, there have been some instances where using the Samsung usb cable connected to an Apple adapter also can work. This is due to the fact that there is slightly different amperage which needs to restart the battery.
4. Charge From a Different Powerpoint Or Power Board
So while this is a super obvious fix, if you haven’t already done this, it may be worth trying.
Simply charge your Samsung tablet from another powerpoint or socket to see if it is the powerpoint at fault.
Also, if you are using a power board, these sometimes become overloaded and trip which results in all devices not operating or charging. Look for or an orange button that should be pressed in.
5. Check For Debris In The Charge Port
Another really successful fix to to clean the charge port of your tablet which might be preventing a successful connection.
This is done as the charge port can become filled with unwanted dirt, dust and lint. To clean this, you can get a toothpick, sim card tool, straw, toothbrush or cut q-tip to try and dislodge this dirt.
Once done, you should now hear a “click” when inserting your cable which indicates that it is connected.
6. Place Samsung Tablet In Rice
If you have dropped your Samsung tablet into water or any other fluid and now have no charging, then this is a great fix!
What you want todo is power down the tablet and place it into a large container of rice. Preferably the rice should fill the tablet completely and be in an inclosed container or sealed bag.
Now leave this for 24-48 hours.
While this step does sound strange, it is done as the rice is great at absorbing excess moisture or water that has built up in the tablet. If you have just dropped your tablet in water, I would urge you to get it into the rice as soon as possible.
7. Remove Back Case (If Possible) & Remove Battery Connections
While Samsung tablets aren’t designed to be taken apart, with the right tools, you can actually remove the back plate to access the battery connecters.
Even Samsung themselves have said this is a problem in some tablets which can only be fixed this way. For specifics, users note that removing the battery and screen cables for 10 minutes, then plugging back in works. From there, you’ll then want to charge the tablet for 2 hours and try to power on.
Once done, this should hopefully reagin power! For a more in-depth tutorial, check out the below video.
8. Visit Samsung Store
If all else fails, it may be worthwhile to go and visit your local Samsung store for repairs. In some instances, it may be a broken charging port or even a dead screen
