Hi

I have the Tab Pro 8.4 since yesterday.
Today i noticed that charging over USB is not working. I get a red cross in the Battery Symbol.

Anybody with the same Problem?

Hello.

If you mean charging by other charger than original, it's normal.
All Samsung Tab need original charger or compatible charger (mean mentioned "for Galaxy Tab").

no I mean charging on the USB Port with a normal Micro USB Cable. I have one here from a Galaxy S2 or S3 and with them it doesn't work.

It requires 2amps to charge while the screen is on. The other chargers are probably only providing 1amp so while screen is on it is not charging.

Then it is the same issue.

A computers USB ports only output 500ma for usb 2.0 devices unless the machine has a piece of software designed to tell it to send more over the port.
It is still not the 2 amps required to charge the device while the screen is on, it should still slowly charge with the screen off.

The nexus 7 probably has a lower power draw allowing it to charge at 500ma with the screen on.

It's what i mean.
You cannot use another charger or computer USB port than original or compatible for recharge Galaxy Tab.
It's not a question of intensity ,Galaxy Tab wait for signal on +-DATA pin .
Original charger has 2 resistors between +-DATA for be recognized by Galaxy Tab.
You can use a special USB dongle for recharge at any USB port http://dx.com/p/usb-charging-adapter...b-black-151322
