Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

My Samsung galaxy i5801 occasionally switches itself off, and I have to hold in the power button for 8ish seconds to affect a hard reboot; I've only had it a month or so, and it never happened at first, could it be an app I have downloaded or something more sinister? TIA!

Won't turn off


The Galaxy Tab 2's software is not perfect and I have seen several reports it may hang up itself to the point where it does not respond to the power button anymore. Unfortunately, it does not provide a forced shutdown.

However you can do the following:
1. Plug in the charger and connect it to the table.
2. Press *and hold* the power button for roughly 15 seconds. This will cause a hard reset, and the machine will reboot. Release the button when it does.
3. After the "Charging Battery" screen is displayed, you may remove the charger and the tablet will power down.
