Keeps turning off and on and won't stop

My Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 keeps turning off and on. You don't have time to do a factory reset because that's all it does is go off and on. Any suggestions? I have tried the off and on button with the volume button to reset but it doesn't stay on long enough.

Try disconnecting the battery . This is a common problem with Samsung tablets and is often resolved by just disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. This video is a battery replacement video but shows how to get into the battery and how to unplug it. You don't need to remove the battery . Follow the video only as far as the disconnect.

What is happening with the device Is that It's bootlooping, only thing you can continue to do try Is doing getting the device into the boot screen where you go to reset the device. Another thing that could be tried is new parts that could potentially cause the boot issue but most likely It's a motherboard issue with the device.

It will never let me get to the reboot screen. Is it best to just buy another one or does a motherboard cost less? I tried taking it to Best Buy but they always say there is no one there that can look at it right now. They suck! Lol

I would just buy a new one, motherboards are usually around the same price of the device.

Thank You very much. I love the one I have, so it looks like I'm just getting a new one.

My Galaxy Tab A was going to a black screen.... no buttons worked at all. I had it in a protective cover, and as soon as I took it out of the cover, it is now working fine. As soon as I put it back in the cover again... black screen! I don’t use a protective cover anymore :-)

by

I just saw another post, and it’s the magnet in the cover that is causing it. The protective cover I have is like a book, and when you open the cover and fold it behind the tablet, it displays a black screen and renders the buttons useless. As soon as you unfold the cover, the Tablet is operational again. Give it a try
