Question about Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet PC

1 Answer

While playing a game, my Samsung Galaxy Tablet, the screen went black. I can still hear noise coming from the speakers and the buttons are lit up. What can I do to fix this problem? I've tried holding the power button which is not working.

    Mostly black, but some colors of lines. Seems the touch part works, but can't see anything.

    screen will go black with no warning. have to hold power button then it goes to the lock screen and once unlocked I'm back where I was

    usually when in a downloaded app. It happened after Samsung did an update and I lost the S Pen app. The only way I could get it back was with a factory reset. No sound when the screen goes black. I have to hold the power button for several seconds, release it, then hold for several seconds again. It comes on at the lock screen. Once screen is unlocked, I'm right back where I was -- in a game, another app, etc.

    My tablet is charged and I can power it on but the menu will not come up, like its frozen. Then I cannot power down unless I hold the power button 21 seconds, then it comes right back on to the Samsung screen only.

    It powers on but will not go to menu and when I turn it off, I have to hold off button 21 seconds before it shuts off, but then it comes right back on by itself and stays on Samsung screen.

If holding down the power button for 10 seconds (theoretically, try holding it down for ages and be patient) doesn't reset your device, you may have to wait for the battery to run flat, then try the reset procedure again.
Hope this helps, Alistair

HI baring 16 listen You can get do a hard reset on the Samsung tablet. I must warn you that if you do a hard reset on the tablet you will lose all of your data. Next if your hearing a fan sound in the tablet. The tablet it self may be struggling to do simple operations on it. Where did you buy the tablet from. The steps to doing a hard reset on the tablet are as follow. 1 You need to hold both the power button and menu home key buttons at the same time. You will see the reboot screen come up. DO a wipe user information on it. It will begin wiping the tablet. You will have to reset set up the tablet after it is finish.If you still hear the fan sound take it back to the place of purchase for an exchange. Hope this helps
