Why won’t my Galaxy Tab 3 turn on?

Anonymous October 7, 2013

I have tried everything and my tablet still will not turn on. I held the power button down, held the power button down while touching the screen, power button and volume down, power and volume button up, power and home button, home button and volume down…

I just bought my tablet about 2 months ago and have not used it in about 1 month. I know the battery is dead but when I try to charge it, whether it be on the pc or through the charger, it does not do anything.

How do I resolve this?

    I just found an odd fix. Hold the power button down and the volume button down at the same time for about ten seconds. Let go of the volume button and keep the power button down for a few more seconds. Release the power button. No idea why this worked, but it did. Give it a try.

    a) Let it charge for an hour and then remove the battery, re-insert and try powering on.
    b) If by chance any of your friends has a similar model, try their battery instead to see if the battery is faulty or not.
    c) Visit a service center.

    If all else fails, take it to the shop. It's still under warranty!

    if battery is empty then device will not boot, plug to the wall for charging and press power ON+Volume Down for few seconds
