Try pressing and holding the power button for at least 10 seconds. This is a soft restart that can sometimes get the Tab to start. If that does not work, try holding it for 30 or even 60 seconds just to be certain. Try another micro USB cable if you have one. Cables can go bad suddenly. Try another charger. Even a standard computer USB port will charge even a higher power device like a Tab. The charge indicator might not come on, but it is trickle charging. It just takes longer. If you use a computer port or other low power source I would leave it plugged in at least 6 hours or so before trying to turn it on. If none of these work contact Samsung. Their support site has some troubleshooting capabilities and online support chat and even telephone support. It could be a little more convenient; they kind of force you to go through the steps, but I have always considered there support pretty decent. If you have not done so already, it is a good idea to set up an account and register your device on the Samsung website. Once you do there will be links for Ask a Question, Downloads, etc. You will need your exact model number which will be something like SM-T3100GNYXAR. I believe this is printed on the box label. If that is not handy it is on the back of the device in letters so tiny you will need good light and a magnifying glass!

SOURCE: SAMSUNG GALAXY TABLET NOT CHARGING OR TURNING ON

Hi buckpot2001,

To correct this issue, please follow the steps below.

1. Press and hold down the power button whilst at the same time touching the screen (you may have to wait up to 30 seconds as it clears the system).

2. You will then notice the battery indicator pops up.

3. The Tablet will then reboot. Everything goes back to normal.

4. If that fails to work, connect the power cable and repeat the above steps.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My galaxy tablet just went dark. No screen or power. It was more than 50% charged last I looked an hour before. It has been plugged in for 20 minutes now and it won't turn on. What happened??


it depends.. check the battery pack maybe this cause a over charge and check first if your galaxy tablet is still part of the warranty this will help you a lot.

Galaxy tab p1010 not charging


Hi!Maybe this will work:1. Try a different charger.2. Connect it to a pc to see if that can charge your tablet (if this is working, it means that your charger is the problem)3. If none of the above works, then is the battery or the device itself that don't function properly and you should go to check it on a autorized service shop.
Hope this will help you!
