ALL EVERYONE NEED'S TO DO IS..... 1) TAKE A DEEP BREATH 2) GO AHEAD & THANK ME NOW

THE FIX IS QUITE SIMPLE, THERE IS NO WAITING FOR 4 HOURS FOR IT TO MAYBE DO SOMETHING WHILE CONNECTED TO A COMPUTER. DON'T BOTHER FIGHTING WITH MULTIPLE CORDS OR OUTLETS.

HERE IT IS THE FIX TO SOLVE ALL G PAD 8.3 LTE CUSTOMER FRUSTRATIONS,.............

1- HAVE THE ORIGINAL CHARGER OR ANY OTHER QUALITY MICRO USB CABLE PLUGGED IN AND READY TO GO

2- WHILE THE TABLET IS NOT PLUGGED INTO THE CHARGER HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS.

3- WHILE STILL HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON DOWN PLUG IN THE CHARGER AND THEN GO AHEAD AND RELEASE THE POWER BUTTON.

4-WITHIN 5 SECONDS YOU SHOULD SEE THE BATTERY SYMBOL POP UP, FROM THERE THE BEAST IS BACK GIVE IT SOME TIME TO CHARGE AND JUST LIKE THAT, SHE LIVES!!!!!

Hi Ruthdialtan,


Oh no! I know how frustrating it can be to have a device that will not power on. Are you using the original charger that came in the box with the device? Has there been any liquid or physical damage to the device? Does the device have a case on it?

Thanks,

I'm having the same problem. No damage. Nothing changed since last use...just not turning on/not showing charging. Checked plug in with my phone & that is charging just fine 😕 Haven't even had it a year! 😞

I am having the same problem. My battery discharged because of non-use. It will not recharge, will not turn on. I've only had my LG 8.3 LTE tablet since 5/2014. I am using the charger/cable that came with the tablet. The charger/cable is kept in a protective zipped case, so there is no damage to the charger. I have tried 2 different outlets (both working for other things) but my tablet will not recharge.

What is the problem?

I'm sorry you're having issues with your tablet ssnowandsurf . I know its frustrating. I recommend checking the charging port on your tablet to ensure its not loose or damaged. Are there any problematic apps on  your tablet? If so, when you are able to turn it on, remove those to check if that will resolve the issue. Keep us posted.

If the tablet won't turn on, and it won't charge, how am I to check the apps? That doesn't make sense.
