Crack has appeared in screen and now tablet won't work

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 was working fine yesterday, but wouldn't work today.

It won't charge and it won't switch on. I also noticed a crack in the screen this morning, which wasn't there yesterday. How the crack got there is beyond me as the tablet has had very little use, is kept in a cover and has no visible signs of impact or scratching and has never been dropped or bumped or had anything dropped on it.

At this point I'm unsure if it's the tablet that has caused the crack or the crack has caused the tablet to stop working.

Just wondering if anyone else has had something similar happen?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Samsung Tab User , You do not know how the crack appeared, it is possible a bad battery(severely swollen) may have done this, dose the case or display look bulged out, and if you have warranty have it checked out. Below find link to dismantle your device so you can check it out and if nothing beside display seems faulty the same guide can be used to assist in replacement of screen. The second link is to replacement screen's which can be bid on or bought out right, which you can also do a search on for better pricing perhaps. If not up to doing the repair your self have a good local cell phone/ computer repair shop have a look and estimate repair.Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

multiple possibilities.

1) LCD Failure. If the LCD has had damage to it, there will be no images on the screen. (Replace)

2) Disconnection. If the screen, or battery is disconnected, then reconnecting them, and cleaning their connectors would fix the issue.

3) Overdischarged battery. The battery may be discharged to the point where it is not recognisable as a battery. Disconnect the battery, and apply controlled voltage/amperage power supplie to the battery itself manually. Do this for approximately 10 minutes, reconnect the battery, then try charging it normally.

4) Bad battery. Battery may be failing and need replacement.

5) Charge port. Your charge port may no longer be giving your battery the correct charge, and need replacement.

6) Bad mother board. Your motherboard may be failing. repair costs on these are more expensive than they are usually worth repairing, and i would suggest replacing the device at this point.
