I got the OTA update for my Galaxy Tab S 10.5 to Android 6.0.1. Ever since installing it I've been having USB issues from not charging and not being detected in Windows 10. Whenever I plug an USB cable it shows the battery icon with a red X, no matter what cable or charger I use. It also does this in Windows. I installed the Samsung drivers and neither Odin or Kies can detect it. Device Manger doesn't show any unknown device or the tablet. The only way I can charge it now is to turn it off and leave it overnight. This gets maybe 6-8% charge. I've also tried factory reset, but same issue. Is this tablet pretty much done for now?

If you have not been able to charge to 100% even though you have tried a number of cables and chargers then it looks like you battery has gone bad.

A battery can just die just by going to low, it might have been weak and this was the straw that broke it`s back, I found my T800 battery dead the other week it would not turn on, a bad app had drained it overnight, luckily i charged to 100% and it seems to be fine.

You can get replacement battery`s on eBay for like $10 and tool kits for like $4 and there are lots of youtube video`s on how to replace the battery it looks easy.

I already have my replacement battery and tool kit ready for when my battery goes bad as they all do eventually and i love my 10.5" too much for a dead battery to stop me using it for long.

Here`s my Kit, I have posted this photo a few times.

I tried the methods above minus opening it. I left it plugged into my PC for half a week and came back to it. Randomly decided to start working as if none of this ever happened. When I turned it back on it was still stuck at 34%, but it now showed a charging icon instead of a red X. I've been using it on all different chargers so far and no issues.
