More Samsung Tab3 probs
« on: June 17, 2018, 07:03:04 AM »
Hi all

I've posted here in the past with Tab3 problems which members have sorted for me - thanks again!

So here we go with another one, which frankly has me baffled and is seemingly not fixable (at least to me).

Mrs Bealman also has a Tab3, which she has hardly ever used until recently. Anyway, she was watching some movie or other on Netflix or some such thing which I know ziltch about, when it froze mid-scene.

Anyway, I thought to hold the on-off button to completely reboot the device, but no go. Nothing happens. If I tap it once, screen goes off, tap it again, frozen screen comes back on.

Menu button and back one page button make beeps when touched, but the screen stays stubbornly jammed on.

There appears to be no way to get at the battery to pull that out, so I think I have a dead Tab3 on my hands.

Any ideas on above greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

George
