Title:

Tablet not charging and not turn on

Text:

I read many thread about similar issue and none of solution worked for me so far. Please advise.
Battery drained out, while I was on vacation. Ever since, the device does not get charged. I tried many cables that work for other devices but charging icon does not show up, while the device itself gets hot.
I tried all combination of volume up/down + power + home and volume up/down + power, while cable is plugged, and nothing worked.
When I called Samsung, they said they will provide free repair, even though the device is out of warranty, however, they would wipe out the data before repair and I need to avoid it.
-If you can advise any solution for the charging issue or the way to backup the data under current situation, it would be great.

Additional information.

I replaced battery but no luck. Right after I replaced the battery, the area marked in the picture gets really hot. I currently disconnected replacement battery.
+If there is no luck of getting this device back to working, if anyone knows how to extract data from dead device, it would help too. Thank you.
