Hi my Tab 3 no longer charges. It is about 3.5 years old but has not been used that much. I last charged it before Christmas and now it will not respond at all. I took it to one place who said this is a common problem with the Tab 3 and that it should just need a power boost but that did not work. I am not sure what else they looked at to find the problem but it has not been resolved :-(
As this is in a nearly new condition otherwise I really don't want to just throw it away. Has anyone else experienced this issue and had it subsequently resolved?
I have a possible solution but then another question.
I too had a flat battery and using the mains charger nothing happened. A friend suggested plugging it into the car socket used for my phone. I did, and somehow it worked.
Sadly using a genuine Samsung car charger did not work for me! I guess I just have to resign myself to the fact that my tablet is kaput! :-( shame as it is like new and hardly used.
