Battery shows fully charged but after about 5 mins tablet powers down and I get a battery symbol showing fully discharged with a warning triangle inside it. When I plug it back into the charger the battery symbol shows fully charged within a minute.Sometimes the pad will stay on for awhile but more often the battery shows fully discharged with the warning triagle in it. Is there any way of fixing the charging problem

The fact the battery shows fully charged means nothing, the symptom is a defective battery.

SOURCE: Tablet doesn't turn on, it shows a battery with an triangle and this symbol!

When you have the charger plugged into the tablet and wall outlet does the triangle change to a lighting bolt if it doesn't change try a different changer either the charger or charging port or charging cable might be bad

SOURCE: Battery will charge to 100% only 50%

Its probably because of your tablets power source. If you have used your tablet very often then it will begin to cause the battery to drain more quickly and it will also not fully charge. It could also be a problem with your charger. There could be a short in it or something else that would cause it to stop charging the device at a certain point. The tablet isn't powered by a removable battery so don't try to open up the back and tear out any circuit that you think is the battery as this may cause even more damage to your tablet. If you have a warranty on the device then try taking it to the store you bought it from and see if they can help, but if you don't then be prepared to spend some cash. You could also take it to a tech store (if you know of one) and maybe they could run a diagnostic on the tablet to see what's wrong. If you're trying to charge your tablet while its turned on it could also be the amount of apps that you have installed on your device. Apps can actually cause put a strain on the battery and cause it to preform poorly. Try to avoid large apps (apps that take up a lot of space) because they can actually cause the device to run slower and it will also force more power to be drained from the battery which in turn will keep the battery from charging fully while its on. Try either one to see which one works for your device.

I have a Mach Speed JLAB tablet. It wont power on. Just showes battery with exclamation point in the middle. Why?

That symbol usually indicates the battery isn't charged or charging. It could be a connection problem, a charger problem, or a battery problem.

If you have an extra wall charger, try that first as they don't always last forever. Make sure the plug that connects to your tablet looks clean and not corroded.

If it still won't charge, then chances are the battery needs servicing to make sure the connection is OK or the battery just might need to be replaced.

Can not charge my Supersonic SC-999 Tablet.

Check the output of the charger to make sure its actually working, if it is most likely the battery connector inside the unit is bad, or the battery is bad.

Had this tablet for one day, its showing 50% .. battery, when should I recharge..

There's no harm in keeping it on charge all the time. Unlike older rechargeables, newer Li-ion batteries don't need to be broken in by running them down and then recharging.

I have a android jellybean 4.2 tablet when you put it on charge comes up with charge symbol then when you try turn it on it comes up with the android symbol filling up with jelly beans then lights word for...

Check by replacing the battery. If battery is weak [in terms of current storing capacity], the phone will show; as the battery is fully charged, but, when the software starts to load, the voltage of the battery will go very low than normal. If so, the fault you indicates here can happen. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box.

Why does the battery level icon show only a "lightning strike" symbol?

Lightning Strike Symbol means that the battery is charging.
If it is shown even when it is not charging then your charging circuit needs to repaired. Just replace the charging IC not a very high cost. Might cost around 5-10USD.

When I try to charge my samsung galaxy tablet a yellow triangle pops up on the battery sign

I had this same thing. The Batter image had a red line on the right side and the yellow triangle had an explanation point in the middle.

I searched the net and found a few solutions.

1. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds.

2. Hold the power button down and the volume down button at the same time for 30 seconds.

3. Just let it charge and over night and it should go back to normal.

I did all 3, in the order I wrote them. While in step 3, after about 5 minutes I pressed the power button and it showed that it was charging normal.

Hope this helps.
