Tablet won't turn on, even when charged?

Hi, so my tablet has been dead for a about a week or 2 and so I tried to plug it into my PS3 and the battery popped up including the loading image but it looked frozen and didn't look like it was doing anything. So I took it to charge to my laptop instead and it still did the same thing. Then I tried turning it off and on and now it doesn't do anything at all. Just a black screen, nothing turns on. I tried holding the power button many times and it still did nothing. Will I need a new battery?

Samsung give 2 year warranty by the way

Thank you David. Indeed I've just read the small lines about the Samsung warranty who give 2 years. Before I only notice the reseller insurance of one year.

If you bought the tablet from amazon.com, it's probably a broken backlight.I bouget my samsung galaxy 10.1 from there and I maybe dropped it a few times, but some of the screen froze and went dark in places. Eventually, the screen stayed black but the device made noises and the back and menu buttons at the bottom still lit up, so i looked it up and it said a lot of people who had bought their 10.1's from amazon had the same problem with the back light.maybe have it sent back to samsung and have them fix it (they will factory reset it though). I hope this was helpful for you.

I seen that you tried charging it from a ps3 and a pc. Your tablet needs a 2amp charger and will not charge normal from a usb port. Try this first, you will see the battery with the lightning bolt until the battery reaches about 3.7v and will register 1% then you will see the animation with the battery filling up. I have also seen a bad charge port cause this as well as cold solder joints on the battery connector.

Try holding power and volume down button to boot into recovery mode

by

I've tried but it doesn't work either. It seems that there's no power anymore despite the fact that I've try to plug for charge battery for several hours.

by

Could be the battery but i'd get Samsung to fix it before doing anything yourself

by

YAYYYY it worked. My tablet would not turn on for a couple days. No response at all. I held the power button, no response. I then googled this site and read this article. I tried holding the power button with the volume button for 15 seconds and about 10 seconds IT TURNED ON. So grateful for your guidance. Thank you.

I tried all the tips ie. holding buttons on and off, opened the case and disconnected and reconnected the battery etc.but nothing worked! This morning my wife called me and excitedly showed me the tablet was working. I couldn't believe it when she said she shoved it in the fridge for an hour and when she took it out and switched on it worked perfectly. Said she had read of someone putting a phone into a fridge and thought she would try the same trick! Happy lady!

I had the same problem. I have the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

I just pressed the power button + volume down + volume up, for 20 seconds while the tablet is connected to the charger. Then showed up the charging icon and could turn on the tablet.

Hi Guys

My tablet suddenly went back, and mind you it was fully charged. Tried different techniques to switch it back on but to no avail. Plugging it in the power didn't work or pressing down on the power button.

What worked was plugging it in the power, pressing the power button and the low - volume key, all at the same time for about 5 seconds should turn your tablet back on.

I was so happy to have it working again.

Hope this works for you. Good luck.

It's no use. It's dead. Get a new tablet. Say goodbye to everything on your old one.
