    " you can try the following if you wish.
    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. "
