    Default Samsung Tab3 Wont Power On

    Got the little one a tab 3 for her birthday, was only 2 weeks ago today and the cnut wont turn on now, off on our jollies tomorrow and was onto a winner for keeping her quiet on the plane journey, tried everything i can think of but it just wont power on

    Tried all the combos for a hard restet, volume up, power on, hold home etc etc, but nothing, same when i try to charge, nothing on screen to let me know its responding

    Was tempted to take it apart but dont really want to void the warranty when i can take it to get sorted after our hols

    Anyone any ideas

    Its a common fault with these, The battery connector inside has come out a little. Open it up and just press the connector back in to place. Should now charge and power up

    Tried the tablet last night after 3 weeks of not touching it, mysteriously it now works

    My other daughters tablet wont connect to anything now (wifi says its connected but nothing will load, play store, browser, youtube etc)

    Is it just me or are these tablets absolutes pants, when it does work its slow, im not a samsung basher, love the galaxy phones which i why i went for these

    My mrs and my own tab3 does this.. we both have smart cover and if put it down a bit rough tends to make device shut down for some reason!!! I looked it up and found holding power button for 10 to 14 seconds turns it on.

    Now seen this I might give this a try just to stop this happening again! Thanks for this
