My Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 suddenly won’t turn on.

I used it just yesterday and the battery was charged. Now when I try to turn it on nothing happens. I tried to connect it to power via USB and the socket, but nothing. Please help!

    Thanks so much for the tip. It worked for me. Never had a problem before this. I also thank youon behalf of my eight yard old daughter. I let her play angry birds. I supposed she had something to do with the problem.

    I was charging my Galaxy Tab when suddenly it went very hot and the screen started twinkling darker, than lighter. I restarted the device and it did not turn on by itself. So i pressed the switch on button, but it doesn't start. Please help me

      It sounds like something broke. Better take it to a shop and have it checked out. Fingers crossed it's nothing serious!
