Why won't my tablet charge or turn on from a completely drained battery?

Last Update Date : Feb 08. 2018

Important: You will not be able to simultaneously charge and use your Galaxy Tab if you are connected to a PC's USB port. The USB connection on a PC does not provide enough power for you to charge and use the device at the same time.

If you need to simultaneously use and charge the device, we recommend you use the factory travel charger.  


If your Galaxy Tab won't turn On


• Connect and charge the device using the factory travel charger for 1 hour.  

Note: The battery charging indicator may take up to 10 minutes to appear on the tablet's LCD screen.  

• Connect and charge the device using the factory travel charger for 1 hour. 

• Disconnect the device and then attempt to turn it on by holding the power button down for 15-20 seconds. Samsung Galaxy Tab will appear.  

•  If the device turns On, the device needed to be charged. Turn Off the device and reconnect it to the factory travel charger for an additional 6 hours. 


Note: If you don't have access to the factory travel charger you can charge the device using the USB connection on your PC, but the device will require twice as much time to charge (approximately up to 10 hours). Your device will need to be powered off in order to charge.<span sty
