You plug the charger cable into the tablet but not all the way in, if you plug it in slow-motion style you will feel the 2 hooks click into the tab STOP at this point , you will see it can still go in +/- 1.5 mm depending on if cable is original or not this is what you want.
Basically I'm asking you to do the task halfassed plug it in "like that it's kind of in there" --- This is my preferred way.---
generic cables are normally bigger and much harder it get in some plug in almost sea-saw style one side all the way in other side not in yet a.k.a it's in skew.
I have also seen it work if you plug the USB end in half way +/- (where is half way? on the bottom of the USB you will see the 2 squares the moment they aren't visible your half way)
You can try one of the 2 or both if it never starts check cable/charger.
i took a picture of both ways in one you will see the lightning bolt that it is really charging
