Yesterday I plugged my tablet in and immediately noticed difficulties. It was beeping...meaning an improper connection...and didn't charge. I switched to a new cable with no improvement. It will lose charge as I use it...and when I dont. It will only fully charge if turned off...and propped up. If not in the right position...it drains.
Is it battery or charging port?
Am currently using a FIRE tablet which is an absolute piece of rubbish.

My guess is your charging port has become loose. I got the port in my tablet changed for around £15 at my local tech repair shop

That's what I thought...it's been knocked off the table a few times over the years. Resulting in the cable being bent...if that gets bent I'm sure the port gets damaged. Just surprised at such a sudden deterioration.
£15 is less than I expected.
Ring round a few places tomorrow, pasta. Get some quotes

Any luck, pasta?

I unexpectedly had to collect a parcel in town and did not want to take my tablet with me, and go looking for repair places. I'm popping into a local place tomorrow, but I'm worried they'll want to send it away.
Don't let them send it away, the port is very common and the job straightforward. It took 2 hours when I had mine repaired but luckily I have been using the shop for years and trust them.
It would be good if someone could recommend a place local to you. I prefer an established brick and mortar business to a market stall
Just thought, have you tried blowing in the charger port or wiping it out gently with a cotton bud? The slightest dust or debris can affect charging.

Got it sorted. Took it to local place and nice young woman gave it a look and said there was a bent prong in the charging port. She poked at it a bit, said it was now fine and sent me away with the cable she'd tested it with. No charge...result!
Fabulous! Glad it is sorted and you now know where to go if you have any problems with your devices and gadgets

Yes...I can save for when it really develops a problem!
