Mine had become nonfunctional due to power issues like this. it got to where it run for maybe a hour or two, sometimes even less. Last week, it would run for like 20 minutes and shut off.
Last time i sent it in to samsung, 70.00 repair charge, and it did the same thing over time.
I got disgusted in July, and was going to buy a LTE ATIV Q, which never showed.
Then Note 10.1 2014 LTE in October, which has really never showed up either.
On whim, i got disgusted, and just restored back to factory. Orignial factory last week.
While upgrading via OTA, charge on battery went from like 10% to 75% after an OTA update. I had put that Team Battery bar on it, so it was obvious what just happened. Almost in front of my eyes, i was driving, and it rebooted between exits. Yes, i know i should not hack and drive...lol
That isn't battery. Thats battery meter or software or something. Physical battery, must be fine.
Restored to Stock Verizon Out of the box, Honeycomb a second time yesterday, and it ran 13 hrs on battery in standby today alone. Battery itself almost has to be fine.
I will read this thread again.
I will update.
The official OTA updates is respnosible for the battery issue.
I restored again back to factory Honeycomb, because I have nothing on the tab.
This last time, After the first update, and one of the next OTA updates did the exact opposite as last time. My battery went to 70 to 2, then proceeded to die.
Instead of assuming I was out of charge. I turned tablet off, and let it set for an hour, no charger.
Reboot, back up to 70%
I cracked the case this time. Its easy, take care around the ear phone jack.
The battery has a simple connector right in the center, you just pop up. I let ithe tablet sit for about 20 minutes to make sure there was no residual charge in circuit
Been averaging standby for 16 or more hours. Yesterday it kinda unepectedly quit, but I had been on LTE for over 5-6 hours, tablet had been running on battery for a couple hours before.
Might look for a new ROM, if all I have to do, is crack the case, and reset the battery.
