Lumia 2520: "0% available (plugged in, not chargin...

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I purchased a 2520 in January.  It's a great tablet and even better now that I have the power keyboard.  
However, I have noticed one thing.  
When the charger is plugged into the 2520, no problems.
When I attach the 2520 to the keyboard and the charger is plugged in, no problem.
When I unplug the charger while the 2520 is attached to the keyboard, it sometimes reboots and it sometimes doesn't.
If I undock the 2520 from the keyboard and unplug the charger, the 2520 goes dead.
I noticed, when it was plugged in, via the Desktop, using the battery icon, that Battery 1 says: 0% available (plugged in, not charging)
Does this mean that the tablet battery is dead?

Hi DrPhibes,
Welcome to the Nokia Support Discussions! 
When did this issue start to happen? Did something happen to your Lumia 2520 before the charging issue came up? What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far for this issue?
If the battery is completely discharged, it may take several minutes before the charging indicator shows any progress. Though the tablet works fine when the charger is plugged in, try leaving it idle for a few minutes and see if the battery indicator will increase from 0%. 
Try also to restart the PC before re-charging it to refresh the tablet's software. if the issue continues, check this link for more troubleshooting steps to try: Nokia Lumia 2520 - Need help in fixing a problem?
