Step 1: Use Apple 30 Pin to Charge Samsung Tablet
Samsung 30 pin cables are faulty
Although my tablet is a few years old I got it off my dad whom used it for 2 months then put it in a drawer and bought an iPad.
I used it for 2 weeks then it wouldn't charge
I cut it open the cable but all the wires were connected (maybe a dry solder) but wouldn't take charge even when it said it was. Samsung 30 pin is also really hard to find anywhere but the internet. I can get an apple cable for $5 at coles.
If you have researched this you will see that Apple cables just don't fit Samsung. I have a very easy way
Step 2: But Apple Won't Fit?
I saw on eBay there was a cable that could be used one way for Apple and if you turn it over it worked for Samsung
After searching ages on the net saying it can't be done I saw a Spanish video on utube. I don't take great pictures but if you look at the port on my tablet there are two copper prongs on each side
Once I bent them the apple charger for straight in upside down
Not only did it start charging but after a couple of minutes it went from dead to 8%
Hope this helps

Much easier than Resoldering or waiting for an obsolete cable to come through the mail
