Question about Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet PC

2 Answers

My samsung Tablet is 10 wks old, a month after I got it, it started to shut itself off and stay off for and hour or two, then suddenly turn itself back on. It did this several times until I found a way to reboot it back to factory settings. That was 3 weeks ago. Today it went into force close and won't turn back on. What is wrong? do I have a lemon? Could it never turn back on? Restetting back to factory settings can't be good for it.

    Charged it, re set it and it started to turn on then died. It is only 3 months old. Tried recharging and resetting a number of times.

You should return the device. It sounds like a problem with the hardware or the software. A good many rooted versions of android exp. these same problems also.

My son's tablet is less than 4 months old and it keeps shutting off even when fully charged. It is a 9 inch nextbook and was purchased at Walmart.

Hold the volume UP botton down when it is OFF, then while holding that button down press and hold the power on button and keep both pressed for about 10 seconds. Then release.

Tablet worked well, but always became very hot. Last week the glass screen suddenly cracked up. What customer service center do I turn to? I still have guarantee, as the tablet is only 10 months old.

find a service agent for the tablet and have it repaired under warranty
on line contact for the company will show where the service agents are.

My tablet shuts itself down at any given moment and then can not be rebooted for at least 10 mins.

I had a similar problem that ended in my taking my tablet to a Samsung dealer. They told me that the tablet had unsucessfully tried to do an particular update. They updated my tablet right there and my tablet turned on and off fine ever since.

I had a notice that there was an important system upgrade about 2 weeks ago. I allowed the update. After that, when I turn the tablet off, it stays off for about 10 seconds and then turns itself back on....

Wait for the next upgrade. They should fix it because you are not the only one, pretty sure. (call them and get their tech support to acknowledge it also, if you can)

Samsung tablet 7.0 will not turn on

Note: These steps clear data from the device. SD card data like your photos and music are not erased unless you choose to format the SD card.

2. Release the Power button when you see the Samsung logo, but continue to hold Volume Upuntil the recovery screen appears.

3. Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. PressHome to choose the selection.

4. Press Volume Up continue.

The Galaxy Tab should then go through the hard reset process.

If you have access to the OS, you can also perform a hard reset in Settings.

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Select Privacy.

3. Choose Factory data reset.
