Why does the screen hang on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0?

Sometimes my Galaxy Tab's screen will hang. I try to turn off, but it doesn't work. I bought it less than a week ago, but I'm already having problems with it. I charge it for only 3 hours at a time and make sure that it already has a drained battery before charging.

When your tablet hangs, just connect it to your computer or laptop with a USB cable and hold the power button. It will reboot automatically.

Hy man ,my best answer is this that you should press power key for a long time,and then it may start,or else you should press volume and power key both for ten second after ten seconds release volume key and press power key for more ten second,i am sure it will work

CPress power button and volume down button at the same time. And hold for long time (30 sec for me). It will restart again. Good luck.
