Possibly your battery has been allowed to become flattened to the point where it cannot accept a charge from the wall charger. One thing to do is to try and trickle charge your tablet from a low voltage/amperage connection. Either a powered on PC USB port to the charging connector on your tablet, or from a low power phone charger (5v/500ma). It has been pretty well documented that lithium batteries do not like to be drained fully & it may be that the battery in your tablet has drained so low that it cannot accept a charge from the Samsung a/c charger.

Try a trickle charge for 8-10 hours (or longer) on your tablet & see if that gets enough charge into your battery to enable it to recognise & accept a charge from the a/c charger.

Samsung did the same to my tablet after a warranty claim and I had to charge off of my laptop for an hour to get it to wall charge.

Stuck with an iPhone 5s (64GB) until Android can support 128gb SD Cards (Stupid large music library and severe Music ADD). But I do have a Galaxy Tab 3 through Sprint to keep my Robot fix strong.
