In the first edition of our Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Problems and Solutions series, we tackled some general problems like performance issues, email errors, automatic reboot fixes, troubleshooting mobile hotspot and connection issues. In this edition, we will set our focus on some user-reported problems, thus, we will become more specific.

We don’t actually know how many blogs we will write about Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 problems and errors but as long as readers will keep sending us emails about their problems, we will continue. If you are reading this blog right now, it could be that you own a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and are experiencing some issues you don’t understand or know how to fix.

We will read your emails and probably answer your questions. So, don’t hesitate to send emails at [email protected] We also launched our TDG forums to become the second platform we could use to answer questions and problems. So, don’t hesitate to join as registration is free.

In this post, we will deal the following problems:

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Power on and charging problems. In this section, we provided a procedure for users to know either the charger or the battery is causing the problem. We also recommended a way to know if a loose connection causes it. But we admitted we couldn’t possibly be sure on everything we say about it as we don’t the opportunity to know the placement of components inside a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. If you want to know more about this, click on the link below to proceed to that section.

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Wi-Fi connection problem. The second section deals with Wi-Fi problems and issues related to it. We provided a procedure on how to refresh Wi-Fi connection effectively and to keep  it on always. Techie users may find these procedures very simple because the reality is that they were really simple. But you’ll be amazed how simple procedures like these could help resolve your problems. You better check it out if you are currently experiencing Wi-Fi problems with your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 battery drains faster. One of the most pressing problems gadget owners face every day is related to battery; the same is true with owners of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. But unlike other Android devices, there is no known battery bug in the Galaxy Tab 2. So, we really couldn’t provide a solution to the problem that doesn’t exist. Instead, we pointed out some ways to conserve battery.

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 becomes very slow. While we could say performance issues are normal, there are just cases when those kinds of problems go over the top. Such is the case of one of our readers who said her tablet becomes real slow to the point she couldn’t load any app, or it would take forever for them to launch. In this case, we immediately provided a walk through on how to do a master reset without using the Settings app in the tablet because she said it would also take forever for the Settings to load.

    Someone helped set up new Tab 10.1 and put in a password number. Now, trying to open today, the password number is not accepted, saying Sorry Try Again. Can you advise how to bypass or change this number please.

    Hey, whenever I plug in my tablet it doesn’t charge. It just keeps discharging. How do I fix this?

    Hi Patricia,

    The PIN is one of Galaxy Tab 2 10.1’s security measure. Unless you know the PIN, there’s nothing more you can do about it.

    What you can do is reset the device to factory settings… but you’ll lose all your data.

  • Harold Hisona

    check the cable and make sure contacts on both ends are good. It could be a charger problem.

    My galaxy tablet 10.1 is facing insufficient disk space and found out that the file that consume most space is the p2pcache which take up 10.2GB of disk space. Can i just remove/ delete this file and what is the file contain. Tqsm ek

  • Harold Hisona

    It looks like you’ve been steaming a lot of videos lately. I’m quite familiar with this problem but just the mention of p2pcache would give us an idea.

    I’m NOT absolutely sure about this but I think it’s just fine to delete those files if they were caches of videos you streamed.

    Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Won’t Turn

    “But before that, trying putting a pressure (using your thumb and index finger) on the area where the camera is located while the device is plugged in and try powering it on.”

    In my case, it’s somewhere in the middle of the front camera and the right speaker. If not sure, just press gently from left to right a couple times until you (I) feel the vibrate. That mean your tabs is booting.
