Hi,

Yesterday my Galaxy Tab suddenly went dead ... disconnecting/reconnecting
the charger ... removing/putting back SIM ... removing/putting sdhc ....
trying all possible button combinations while pressing the power on button ...
it didnt work ... My Tab was dead ...

I was looking up service centers adresses till i found by accident this mail :

www_mygalaxytab_net/samsung-galaxy-tab-how-to/a-dead-gt/

I followed his tip :

Keep power on pressed while touching the screen
The battery indicator pops up.
The Tablet reboots.
Everything goes back to normal.

I just wanted to share this information in case the same happens to one of you.

A great year to you all.

Unhappy Dead Tab
This morning it happened to me: a dead Tab.
To bad, your tip didn't work for me so I am going to the Samsung service center which is (lucky for me) near to my house.
Hope to learn more there because it seems I am not the only one with this problem.

Problem solved. Press the on button and count to ten.
My Tab is working again.

That happened to me two days ago. Got up in the morning and the tab would not turn on. Nothing I did worked so I took it back to TMO and they gave me a new one. Lucky for me I was still with in the 30 day buyers remorse bracket. But now I am wondering! If it happens I will at least give your remedy a try.

Just to make an update on this topic, I notice that when you got absoluted zero charge, my Tab only came back to life while using Samsungs own charger. USB port of my computer alone was not able to charge it back.

I can confirm this. My Tab appeared completely dead.
It had been running a CPU intensive test app while plugged into USB and was obviously using power quicker than it was charging.
There was no low battery warning - presumably because it was plugged in and therefore thought it was charging.
Plugging it into the mains brought up the charging screen. USB alone was not enough to get it to begin charging from completely flat.
Had me panicked for a few minutes
Thanks all for the useful tips.

I have also experienced some weird phenomena when the tab is solely plugged into a USB port. It will on occasion "play dead". Charging the Tab using the wall wart solves this issue. Unfortunately, I've yet been able to determine the root cause.
