Later this night my tablet was working perfectly... I was charging the tablet that was with %1 of battery

Suddenly, the tablet turned off, and when I tryed to turn it back on, the screen started blinking, and I coulnd't even turn it on because it freezes every time i tryed to boot it...

I tryed restoring a Nandroid Backup, and it worked, for 10 seconds

The blinking started again, so I tried flashing a new ROM, maybe it could work, but no

I wiped the data, cache dalvik-cache, and formated system, but when I tried to choose the ROM, this message "Couldn't mount /sdcard" appeared

So, my last chance was to flash a firmware via Odin, but also, didnīt work

I enter into Download Mode, loaded the firmware, clicked start, and "FAIL" when writing "boot"

What I tried
_Stock firmware 4.1.2
_Stock firmware 4.2.2
_Odin 3.07
_Odin 3.09
_Windows 8
_Windows 8.1

First what was the % of the battery??? Did you say one (1) ? Try charging it all the way till it says 100%

Second do you still have custom recovery? If so go to mounts and storage and see if it says unmount in front of the SD card ... if so hit that and it should turn to unmount... then try again to find your Rom.

Hoping this helps you

Never flash or attempt to start a device under minimum power. That is rule number one!

Like the above answer, with the device off, plug in power and let it charge to 100%.

Start up recovery, and flash a backup ROM.

Not sure about windows 8. can't vouch for you there.

Sorry if didn't specified better...

When it got broken the battery was %0, and I don't know if itīs getting charged because the only things I can do es enter into Download Mode, or watch that message about a bad flashing.

And about the Recovery, it got lost when the flashing went wrong. Anyway something happened with the internal storage that "wasn't mount", when in "mounts and storage" menu appeared like mounted

You think that if I charge the tablet some hours, will I be able to flash through Odin?

Or maybe any other idea?

When the tablet is off and you plug in the charger there should a battery "popping" up and should tell you how many % of charge it has, just let it charge all the way to 100%

Once it is completely charged you should be able to flash via Odin.
But the internal storage is kind of worrisome to me, when you tried to flash you did not by accident have the re-partition checked? I hope.
Anyway wait till its completely charged and try flashing a Stock Rom again.

The thing is that battery popping up doesn't appear... There's just a message telling me that the flashing went wrong...

Try holding down the power button with the charger cable detached and see if that message disappears, it looks to me that the tablet is still on, if it does disappear plug your charge cable in and see what happens.

Did you find a solution for this issue? I've had the same issue, I tried re flashing it, that gave me an error as well. Every subsequent attempt shows write fail.

I had the same problem. In my case, i realize that it had happend a few days after I opened the tablet (n5110). After the blinking problem, I opened again and disconneted the battery with the power cable on. Waited for a few seconds and confirm that the blinking is same side effect of the battery disconnected or with bad connection. After reconnect the battery, everything ok and charging normally again. Good luck for you all!
