I noticed an interesting thing. When my tablet stops charging, if I plug it out from the charger end (and don't touch the tablet part of the cable), then plug it in after a second or two, it continues charging normally like nothing ever happened

This may indicate that there is a software charging issue as well.

It was working fine last night, when left it was not connected to anything ie charging or connected to computer.

The battery was low, maybe very low, I dont think I had switched it off.


..any suggestions?
well the battery might be "overdischarged"
when the V/mAh value is below the critical limit - botloader would not give his "OK" to boot the system

I did - the problem was the micro USB port and I had it replaced in a repair workshop here. Works like a charm since.

Hey gabs!
There is no official workshop. Bundyo found a local shop in bulgaria because fixing the usb port is a kind of standard operation for a good technician regardless of the device model.
Jolla Tablet is easy to dissasamble. You will definately find a local shop in munich where you can discuss prices in person and let it fix.
What did you pay, Bundyo?

Hello Mosen, many thanks for clarification. I have some experience with soldering, but SMD soldering is new to me. So may be i should wait for my new youyota tablet before i disassemble the older jolla tablet .

This happened to my aqua fish , won't charge or turn on. Then I found out that this device could start without battery (connect to a pc without battery). I did that and slipped in the battery unit while device was working but all in vain. No detection when connected to pc not even in recovery mode. Now my device is being repaired in the official service centre. Does not look like a software issue but my device was working well , no problems were there at all. I will ask the repair guy about the cause of the issue.

yes, this is a common problem. MicroUSB Port is a weak point of many mobile devices. Its broken by design.
Lets hope that USB C will be widely accepted by the manufacturers
