Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 lite (SM-T110)

OS: Android 4.2.2

I want to connect the device with my computer. In the developer settings I activate USB Debugging - but nothing happens. There is also no option to select the USB behavior. Even more: Unlike this case, my device doesn't even charge. There's a red cross on the charging-battery icon.

What I tried so far:

  • The cable works with other devices (charging and data), so it's not that.
  • Factory resetting the device didn't help
  • There's a setting to connect media with Kies. But I doubt that would let me us adb for management.
  • In recovery mode, there's an option to install programs via adb. When selected, I'm told to install packages with sideload now. But neither adb nor heimdall manage to detect the device.
  • My laptop runs gnu/linux, so I don't assume it to be a driver issue.

So now I'm turning to you ¯\(ツ)/¯ Thanks for any pointers*.

    What happens if you shut down the tablet and connect it to a charger? Does the tablet boot into the "charger OS" (the full screen battery/charging progress display) or the regular Android?
