How can I fix my Samsung 10.1 tablet that won’t turn on after a drop?

My Samsung 10.1 suddenly doesn’t turn on. My son accidentally dropped it and when I try to turn it on it doesn’t. It doesn’t even charge. What can I do?

    If this is the result of a fall, I think you have no choice but to take it in to a technician (or Samsung's reps) to get it serviced. It could be anything from a trivial problem (loose contact inside) to an uneconomic repair (e.g. cracked motherboard).

    if it hardware problem you have to send to samsung if under warranty or get expert shop.

    press and hold the power button 10 sec ?

    Press and hold both power and volume down buttons for 10 seconds, then release vol. down button while holding down power button for another 10 seconds, before releasing.

    plug to pc and wait to be recognized?

    take out the battery so that samsung fully discharge so this should help reset replug the battery
