    Hi all,

    First post so please be kind.
    I've struggled with the search on the site, so apologies in advance
    Had the Tablet S a few weeks now, love it to bits. Main usage is browsing and as a internet radio really.
    Few queries though.
    1. I have an app on there called battery solo widget. It shows in percentage terms the charging level of the battery.
    What I have noticed is that when it reaches 90% the charge indicator on the S turns green, and, the lock screen shows charged too.
    Which one is right? Or, is 90% sufficiently charged in Sony's eyes?
    2. I have noticed, every so often the sound seems to stop. No sound can be heard from ANY app, program or even system notifications. I've applied all updates. Only cure is a re-boot. Anyone else?
    3. Throwing. I see this is a bit of a messy situation at best. I have a KDL40EX503. I can throw music and pictures but no video material of any kind. Always tells me the format is not supported. I know this not to be true since the format can be played via the TV's USB slot.
    However. I have found that if I go have my PC up and running, and all connected as DLNA with file sharing on (on the pc) I can browse and throw from the Tablet to the TV, of course via the PC. The picture quality isn't great but it works in principle. So, what am I doing wrong?

    Overall, I am more than happy with the S, and none of the above issues are cause for me to return the item but would appreciate the thoughts of others :)
    Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post.

    Sorry you are having problems. The only answer I have is on the battery question, yes it seems to be an Android thing that batteries rarely show 100% full charge when checked with apps. Otherwise, congrats on your new tablet and welcome to the forum, glad to have you here.

    Cheers,
    Peter

    Thanks for the welcome :)
    The problems I have I can live with, I know no device is perfect, this is my third android device, hero, S2 and now tablet S.
    I chose the battery widget since on my S2 the two values do match........not to worry.
    Maybe others may know :)
