Nexus 7 won't charge while I'm using it!
« on: November 10, 2014, 12:26:56 PM »
Please help, I've tried everything and read all I can.  My 2012 Nexus 7 tablet will only charge if it is turn off completely.  I love reading books on it but can't because it will not charge while the tablet is on.  I have tried everything I have read on line.  Yes I am using the cables that it came with.  I've tried changing it from MTP to FTP (no luck on either).  I've tried turning it off and seeing that it is charging and then turning it back on - still doesn't work, plugging it into my computer.  NO LUCK WITH ANYTHING!  I see this is a big problem all over the internet but nothing seems to help.
I want to use it on trips, etc. but I need to to charge while using it and it hasn't done that since I got it about a year ago.

Even though you are using the cable that came with your Nexus 7,  try a different cable, I have had original cables to fail.

My N7 2012 slowly discharges in use whilst charging -  but that must be 5+ hrs? could be more or perhaps less but 3hrs leaves capacity left but I don't have that much spare time to see it drain. Get an unlit kindle?

Are you using the same AC adapter that came with it as well? Tablets require a higher amount if power to charge the device than a smartphone. Typically the power requirements call for a 10 watt adapter that can provide 2.1 amps of current. Sounds to me like you're using a 5 watt 1.2 amp adapter instead.
