Hi folks,

i just got my Tab 8.9 last night. I can charge the tab by hooking it up to the Samsung charger with the USB cable. I can also sync up with Samsung Kies in my mac via USB. However i found that when i hooked up the tab with my mac via USB, the there is a cross in the battery icon in my tab. Looks like it is not charging. I tried the same in my PC.

My question is can the tab 8.9 be charged by MAC/PC via USB?

Computers' USB ports cannot supply the amps the tab will need to charge. The output I believe is only 0.5amp.
To properly charge tabs (without shutting it down), you need output with 2 amp (I believe). If you have the older USB charger that output 1 amp, you should be able to charge the tab when it's shutdown.

Am wondering the duration for the first charging of Samsung 8.9"? I understand that the 1st charging for ASUS tablets is 8 hours. Does Samsung 8.9" require this length of time for the initial or 1st charging?

Just charge it to 100% before starting it up for the first time.

This is the quickest way to obtain a first full charge.

A quick press of the power button, when the Tab is in this state, will confirm the % charge so far.

It will charge very very slowly when you connect to PC. I connected it around 7 hours and got a charge of 50% from 14%.

Hi everyone,

I came across this forum while looking for answers to my problems with my Galaxy 8.9 which I got for Christmas.

I thought it was great because I can sync for music and pictures without using USB to computer.

Over the last couple of days it has been acting really weird. First when I went to go charge it (Power On) it would show it was charging but it wasn't charging and it had a Red "X" on the battery icon. When I checked the status it was Discharging.

I took it back to AT&T where we bought it, they said it was the charger, went to Amazon and bought a charger and cable. It was a whole lot cheaper than what the Samsung agent wanted me to buy. Couldn't afford the $60. Had alot of problems with the Warranty dept on this, another story.

Got the charger and cable today weeeeee!!! Guess what didn't work!! Not a shocker there! Went to support and explained what was going on. His solution was a factory reset. No problem, transfered everything to computer and did the reset.

I did the reset and it is still showing that darned "X" on the batter icon. The persons solution was to turn it off and charge it for 2 hours to see if it will charge. It did really really slow. As a matter of fact still going and it's only 54%.

Can someone please help me get that darned red "X" off my battery icon and have the status not "discharging".

I don't know if it matters, but when all this happened I lost my 4G. But is back now after the reset.

Charging and going to bed, hopefully it will be charged up by then. I really miss my Kindle app.

Hope someone can help me!!!

Dawn

Oops, I am tired I forgot one important detail.

I got this for Christmas and everything was working fine up until 5 days ago.

Hope that helps!!!

it sounds like the problem is the charger as AT&T told you, I would have expected them to test yout Tab with an alternative charger
& replaced it under Warranty, if yours was faulty & you only got it Christmas

using a non-Samsung charger is not a good idea, as the majority of them fail to work

Man, took me forever to figure out how to reply to you. For some reason your post was like 4 pages long.

Anyway, I don't think it's the charger. My neighbor has one and I borrowed her charger last night. Same problem. However, I did turn off the tab and charged it (with the new charger) all night and it was fully charged this morning. And the red "x" showed on the icon still when I went to bed.

Guess that is what I will have to do. I am going to miss being able to use it while it is charging. It's strange that one day it worked fine and now this mess. And I can't find nowhere in the samsung website about a red "X" and why the satus of the battery is now saying discharging.

Yes it is under warranty still. BUT, when I had contacted Samsung about sending me another one. The people at Samsung all levels that I talk to were really rude.

1. Had to send in my tab and charger to the service center and after it was deemed that neither one was dropped or damaged with water they would check it out and if found faulty would replace under warranty.

The whole process takes 4 - 6 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!

No way do I want to go without my tab for that long. (How did we ever function before these things came out.) LOL

If tech support can't figure out why I have the red "x" on the battery icon or why the status says discharging, how will the morons there know?

I have preferred Samsung for years on their phones. Right now we have 4 Samsung phones 1 skyrocket and 3 captivates and now 1 tab. And I think my bluetooth is Samsung too while I think of that. And we have 4 of them.

Because of this warranty issue we are definately thinking of buying something else from now on.

Thanks for the advice.

My original adapter and USB cable works fine since day 1 for months,then suddenly in February it started showing a red cross in the battery icon and went into MTP Mode while adapter is power on. I Googled and found others having same problem but no specific solution. Luckily I have a spare original USB cable,and I plugged in the Samsung adapter and it works! Till today I couldn't understand why this happened.

Now I have another SUDDENLY-IT-HAPPEN problem with my 5-in-1 USB Connection kit. It has been working fine for months,allowing me to transfer files via USB thumbdrive easily,including video files. Suddenly my Tab stopped detecting this kit. I bought a brand new kit,but it still doesn't work.

I will be traveling to Europe in afew weeks and will bring my tablet with me.
I really like it! Question - is the battery charger that comes from Samsung
with the tablet ready to go with 220 voltage or do I need to use an adaptor?
Hope not - most modern chargers are already programmed for 110/220 but I
certainly don't want to mess things up with assumptions! jjgo

I recently posted this in the Galaxy 7 forum, but since I was doing this testing on a 8.9 my post may have been misplaced, so I'm reposting it here.

I did some experiments relating to charging my Galaxy 8.9 Tablet from a USB port. This is what I found:

The first scenario involves plugging the tablet into the wall charger supplied by Samsung with my tablet. In this case the Battery status in the about screen changes from "Discharging" to "Charging (AC)" and if I have the status window up at the same time I will see the Power Saving mode go from "Power saving mode enabled" to "Suspended for charging". Also a small "x" appears in the battery icon (next to the wifi icon).

For the 2nd scenario, instead of plugging it into the wall charger I plug it into any other USB charger or USB port. For this scenario the Battery status in the about screen does not change. (It remains on "Discharging".) Also in the status screen, the power saving mode remains enabled. Also a new item in the status screen appears with large letters "USB connected". In small letters underneath that it says "MTP initialization" for a few seconds and then it changes to "MTP connected". Also the small "x" appears in the battery icon. I'm not sure what all that means, although I suspect it means that it is trickle charging (i.e. drawing only a small amount of power from the USB port).

The second scenario remains the same under all of the following conditions:

1.) Plugging in to a USB port on a desktop or notebook computer
2.) Plugging into a USB wall charger other than the one supplied by Samsung
3.) Plugging into a 12V auto USB charger (including one labeled as 2.1A)
4.) Plugging into the Samsung wall charger with the paper trick (covering the two center data pins)
5.) Plugging into the Samsung wall charger very slowly until just the outer two power pins connect. Moreover once this connection is established, if I push it in the rest of the way so that the data pins also connect, it will not revert to the fast charging mode. (i.e. the Samsung charger will only do its thing if you plug into it at a normal speed).
6.) Plugging into the Samsung wall charger with a USB extension cable that I have specially modified. (The data lines were cut and then shorted together on the side that connects to the tablet.

Number 6 is especially perplexing (nearly defying the laws of logic). I have measured the two center pins on the Samsung charger and they are indeed shorted together, so I thought shorting them together in my special cable should have the same effect as letting the charger do it (but it doesn't). So I guess there is some other magic inside the Samsung charger that I still haven't fathomed. I find this all extremely annoying, since I would like to fast charge from several different USB devices, all capable of delivering the required 10 watts ... yet I can't do it!

If anybody has any insights into what may be going on, I would be most appreciative to hear form you.

Thanks

I've solved my charging problems by building an adapter cable. To see a schematic and pictures of this adapter cable, go to the other thread on this topic:

Hey, 8.9 Galaxy users:

One feature I'm interested in exploiting is using my tab as an e-reader during an extended bike tour when charging won't always be readily available. If I go on major power saving modes--turn off GPS, wifi, tone down brightness, etc., how many hours of battery life might I expect? If I can make my device do everything--computing, e-reading, etc.--that would be great!

Thanks.

Scott

Well, after owning an Android phone for over a year, I decided to take the plunge on a tablet.

Unfortunately, I am a cheap SOB (according to my wife anyway), so I picked up a Refurbihed ATT tab off ebay. First, the device was shipped with a IPAD charging cord, not a Samsung. Luckily I resisted the urge to 'manually' make the charger fit, and the local ATT store was gracious enough to give me a cord free of charge.

The second issue, not really an issue, was that my straight talk sim will not work in the device. Appears they allow you to use the ATT phones, but not tablets. So I am now on a 3GB plan with ATT (non-contract). Problem fixed.

Next issue, this thing takes forever to charge, and even worse than what I saw posted on the web (i.e. 14% per hour). I had mine down to 12%, plugged it in when I went to bed around 11 PM and when I got up at 8 AM then next morning, it was only up to 82%. That's a rate of 7.77% an hour, and that is when it is turned off. When turned on, it drains faster than it can charge. I've swapped out the wall charger, still seem to be about the same pace. Will order replacement cords off ebay, but will take several days to arrive, so for now have to be careful on the usage. :(

Lastly, wifi doesn't always connect to my home wifi. Even selecting the wifi in settings and selecting my wifi doen't actually connect, keeps saying scanning in the status bar above.

Love the device, but the headaches are making me question the decision to get this vs. a used IPAD. I prefer the Android OS (really just hate apple's proprietary software requirements), but this is also going to be used at work and don't want to be known as the guy who screams at his tablet in the middle of the day. ;)

Thanks,

Jay

I sense your a frustrated person.......but none of this is normal for your model.

I would say your problems are with the refurbishment of the tab and your Ebay purchase not Samsung.

On average, Tab's only take about 4 hours to charge when switched off and not that much more when on standby.
So anything longer is either as a result of a faulty battery, charger cable or the phone has been hacked into in some way as to cause a battery problem.

The Sim issue is something your probably should have checked out before buying.

The wifi issue could be down to many reason's most of which will have a resolution in here and you will find by doing a Forum Search.

This should help get you started

Thanks Mod. No argument the SIM issue is mine, hence the ATT account now. Actually, not that frustrated. I could probably live with one recurring issue, but the multiple issues is probably a deal breaker. I've reached out to the seller to see if they can send a replacement or if I need to just get a refund. I like the size of the device, so will most likely continue to look for another 8.9 since others don't seem to have the issues I am having.

Thanks

Hello :)
Is there a way to see the percentage of charging when the tablet is turned off and is connected to power?

Hello :)
Is there a way to see the percentage of charging when the tablet is turned off and is connected to power?


Tap the power button, screen should light up & show Time & % charge, for a few seconds
