Faulty Headphones or External Speakers ¶

Once the screen is on let the on/off button go, DO NOT let the volume up button go. Wait until the tablet has finished loading all settings up. Let volume up button go.

Caution: Factory resetting the device will erase any apps, pictures, or files you saved on it.
Defective Internal Speakers ¶
If after resetting the device the tablet's speakers still doesn't produce sound, the speakers may be defective. The speakers may need to be replaced.

Instead of the home button being an instant response, it takes awhile for the action to occur.
Faulty Button ¶

Ultra Power Saving Mode is Enabled ¶
Having Ultra Power Saving Mode Enabled limits the performance of the CPU, which may affect the responsiveness of the home button. To disable that mode, start on the Home Screen and tap Apps in the lower right corner, then tapSettings. Once in the Settings view locate and touch the Ultra Power Setting Mode on the left hand menu. In the top right corner toggle the switch so it becomes a grey box instead of a green box.
Foreign Object interfering with the Button ¶
An object might have gotten stuck between the home button and the device. To get rid of the blockage use an isopropyl alcohol with cotton swabs on the outer button, if that fails then one may also disassemble the the tablet and manually remove the object.
Temporary System Data is Cluttered ¶
Clearing the cache allows the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently. Press and hold Power, Home, and Volume down buttons together until the Samsung logo appears, then release the buttons. Make sure to tap the Volume button down till a Wipe Cache Partition appears and click yes. The process can take a few minutes, after that reboot the Tablet.
