YOGA TAB 3 8' first time charging problem

Hi, I just bought a YOGA TAB 3 8'' and I am using the original charger and cable that came with the package. As soon as I unpacked the tablet I started to charge it. After about two hours of ongoing charging, when I push the power button it shows that the battery is charging but it's still 0% !!
Also there is some kind of counter (or timer?) that was 05:??:?? at first but now it's 04:something... !

 

Is there something wrong with my tablet? Please answer me fast, I'm so worried...

 

Here's a shot of what I'm talking about: (It won't even start without the cable pluged in. And by start I mean the bellow picture!)

Hi tnz612,

 

Welcome to the Forum.

 

A factory reset should resolve the issue. Press and hold power button + volume up button for around 20 secs. You will access to the Recovery menu. Using the volume buttons to scroll across the menu and the power button to select, please press the recovery/wipe option.

 

Let us know if this works.

 

Regards.

Re: YOGA TAB 3 8' first time charging problem

@JJQ I am experiencing the same thing as @tnz612 is. My screen is displaying the exact same display as tnz612 I tried to factory reset it , wipe it , and reeboot it ... It will not reeboot properly I don't know what to do. It says it charging but battery reads 0% it will power on but turns right off again. And ring around the power button is slowly flashing.

Re: YOGA TAB 3 8' first time charging problem

I am having a similar problem. My tablet is about 2 years old and all of a sudden it’s not working properly. The battery got low the other night and I plugged it in like normal. But it obviously didn’t charge because the next day it was totally flat and wouldn’t turn on. Now it acknowledges it is charging but never progressed past 0%. Have tried holding down power button but it just gets stuck on the power up android/Lenovo screen.
