Our Galaxy tab 7 won't turn off. I tried holding the power and volume button but I got a caution screen. There is a red x on the battery icon. The charging cord that plugs in to the bottom of the tablet is frayed. We have wrapped it with electrical tape but I was wondering if this might be part of the problem. It is not plugged in now but still won't shut off. Hope you understand what I am talking about. Would like to shut it down. Thanks in advance.

it will shut down, when the power runs out, your frayed USB Charging cord is no good,
time to buy a replacement cord :- http://www.amazon.co...ds=GT-P1000+USB

I have already ordered one, however, why won't it shut off. Even if I get the new cord, I will still have the same problem.

Have you tried holding the power button only for 15 secs, that may reset it.
