I have a 2 Note 10.1 (2012) I think the model # is N8013 anyway they are old. Both from best buy. Both in otterbox defenders from day 1. I use one a lot daily for my work (s note sketching) the one I use for work daily is working normally. So I dont think there is a preset death for them unless they started after mine. The second one just died today. My wife plugged it in she said the screen went squiggly and brown like our tile floor and shut down. She plugged in to charge and nothing. Charge cord is good. Tried plugging in volume and power button. Nothing. Tried reconnecting the ribbon wires and disconnect reconnect the battery. Nothing. I think she's fried. Any thoughts?
