Try this. Plug your charger in. Then press the power button repeatedly until the screen comes up with a charge icon showing.
Hold the power button down until the blue screen comes up. Then if it boots up just leave the tablet alone and give it some time. You should see an android come up and then a scan of the android words start . This takes time. Don't be impatient . It may boot into a factory reset mode. Just start again with the factory screen.
You can try repeating the process if it doesn't work the first time.
I will give you the instructions to do a hard reset for the tablet.
Once you do this, you will lose all the data on it and will be just like you bought it. The process is listed below.
Press and hold both Volume buttons and the Power button simultaneously. An Android logo with an exclamation mark should appear. Press both Volume buttons at the same time to open Recovery Mode and use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to navigate. Select "Factory Data Reset", press power, choose "Yes" from the menu and press the Power button again.
Make sure you backup your files by connecting it to a PC (if you have access to one) via USB cable,you will have to do a hard reset, otherwise there is no other way to get past the lockscreen (unless you have a recovery option with your email address)
Below is the process to tell you how you can hard reset your Samsung tablet (should work with any tablet):
Ensure that the Samsung tablet is powered off.
Press the Power and the Volume Up button together till the device displays the start-up logo.
Once the logo is displayed, release the buttons and wait till the device enters the Android system recovery mode.
On the displayed screen, use Volume Down button to go to the wipe data/factory reset option (Volume Up and Volume Down buttons are used to highlight the displayed options on the Android system recovery screen).
Once the option is highlighted, press the Power button to select the option. (Pressing the Powerbutton in Android system recovery mode selects the highlighted option.)
On the next screen, press the Volume Down button multiple times till the Yes -- delete all user data option is highlighted.
Press the Power button to hard reset the Samsung tablet device while clearing the dalvik cache along with the process.
Once your device is hard reset and rebooted successfully, you will see that the unlock pattern obstruction is also gone, and you can now set a new unlock pattern on your Samsung tablet.
This tablet does t reset with the power button unlike other Android devices. When you hold down the on/off switch, it only drains the battery. If you see the color indicator still charging, allow a full charge.Then, only stay put and pulse the button for a moment quick and let it rest few seconds to try again and again. Only when u see a light coming out of the screen, and I recommend you do this with the power cord on, you hold the power switch down until the rebooting is iniciated. Let go til it is finish and see where the problem is. More likely, like mine, the Settings stop working and needs tune up for the CPU. Never leave an application running when closing your system. With or without internet connection.
I had the same problem even tried the eset button on the side but nothing worked. Opened ticket with customer support and they advised to do system wipe and factory reset....to do this press teh vol + and vol - and power button all at the same time for 8-10 secornd, until blue screen appears, select "wipe data/factory reset" by using the vol buttons and select using the poser THEN select "YES - Delete all user data"
Obviously you will lose any data but when you can't use the tablet you don't really have an option.
After the system tells you the process is complete you can select the reboot option.
At this point my tablet appeared as is from store.
I had the same thing happen to my Digix Tab 720 last night. This happened after I reset the tablet to factory settings. I left it charging over night and this morning, it is working perfectly. Hope this helps.
Every tablet has a button sequence, the reason being for a fresh restart. Either you unplugged it before full recharge, or didn't use proper charging adapter or cable. There is a solution to avoiding this but first get tablet started by: Hold power button and volume up button for eight seconds, release and hold power button again, tablet should turn on. If not, do the opposite hold power button, volume down for eight seconds, then power button. You need to do this with proper adapter and charger you tablet came with plugged in. You may also need to do this more than once. Once your tablet has started up, the way to avoid this is to swipe right on screen until you see settings app, should be round looking similar to a sprocket, or clock gear. Open settings / display / sleep. I set mine for 30 mins. Now you no longer need to power off you tablet manually, thus skipping the button sequence process.After unplugging from charge adapter you will still need to press power button to start. Hope this helps I have yet to have this problem again, and remember to always let your tablet fully charge before disconnecting.
