My Samsung Galaxy Tab will not come back after it shut off during a game of scramble with friends. It started lagging and then shut off. Now it will not come back on. What should I do to fix the problem? Any help would be great! Thanks.

    Hold down the power button and touch the screen at the same time. Takes about 30 seconds.

    My galaxy tablet 2 (Samsung) will not turn on. I just got it yesterday, and it froze TWICE and then it WOULDNT CHARGE! I let it charge overnight, and in the morning I got up and went to go get on it, but it wouldn’t turn on. Even when I hold the power button for 30 seconds. I want to know how to fix it. I’m not joking. I really want to use it. I JUST GOT THE THING!!!!!!!

    Okay.. so I just bought mine yesterday.. And at first, when it didn’t turn on, I did as it instructed here in the forum and it worked. But then today.. I was using it, and I went to go do something, and the tablet put itself to sleep. And when I returned, I tried to use it again, and it wasn’t working. So I tried holding the power button. When that didn’t work I did the power button and the volume. THEN I tried plugging it in to the computer, and the device won’t install into my computer. So basically, I Don’t know what to do now. I’m going to leave it alone for a few hours and try again, but this is ridiculous. I bought it yesterday T___T
