My brain is somewhat running out of options but now atleast we have tackled almost 90% of the options viable. If you claim the wire is in perfect condition then let us agree that it is. See I'm not physics major but I do know that as long as metal surfaces touch one another, there will be electrical contact possible. With that as reference maybe you are right, maybe the wire is fine, USB wise, but maybe the contact pins where you plug the wire to the tablet isn't, probably during a rush the person didn't pull it out properly, or perhaps rushed to remove the wire and probably bent a few pins. Despite being bent, it will charge perfectly but I don't think data transmission will take place you may have to check if all the pins are straight, kinda like this?
[|||||||||||] (Horrible representation I know
Since you can't boot up the tablet to check if the tablet charges via USB to PC (Because without the offline charge script in Overcome the tablet won't charge via USB, this was meant as a safety precaution to save it incase you needed to drain it completely to restore it, as my tutorial states in this section) you can't really confirm this which kinda sucks. Which leaves you 2 options to determine the "alpha problem"
1) Borrow another Galaxy Tab wire (All Galaxy Tab wire's are the same in general) and try connecting it, IF by any said miracle that it detects the USB, the voila, USB wire is the problem.
2) If the borrowed/alternative wire didn't work, then it's the contact pins in the tablet.
I don't see how this is a bad idea, but would 140% pin down the main issue. (pun intended
PS- I just remembered I had an old Nokia whose pin's for reading the SIM card were bent? (Some fat asshole sat on my phone when it slipped out my pocket at a party and shattered it ;_; FUUUUU) it detected the SIM, but after a while it gave SIM card error. SIM was perfectly fine regardless.
I would like to know your feedback on this, would help alot
Maybe for future references?
