Hello all. this may be an old topic but its new to me :) yesterday my tab had a full charge when i left for work. after work i pull out my tab from my case it does a full boot (usually it just pops out of sleep mode) and it screen is very dim and i get the "please connect to charger" msg.. after that it turns off. I go home and charge it, but it doesnt turn on. I held the power button for like 2 min, nothing. I am about to call samsung because it seems like it might need servicing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

on your Tab 2 7.0, is your Android Version 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.3, or 4.0.4 ICS ?
'device spoofer' is for rooted Tab's only, is your 2 7.0 rooted ?, & if so, what did you use to root it ?

I just used in normally. Something came up asking me to update. so I just clicked yes
Then it rebooted. After that I left it and when I came back, the screen has gone black
I could not on it and even if I connect the usb or charge it, it stayed black.
What should I do?

When it was on charge, did you have a visual indication that it was charging ?

Have you tried to hold the power button in for a full 15 secs, That's worth a shot first

actually I did not check it. I just plug and leave it. I think I start charge it at about 2200pm and unplug it at 0630 am. Is it because i charged it too long?

I have hard reset it yesterday. I lost all pics taken using the camera. All apps was restore automatically, but still have to register all emails and much more.

I really think that i have to really read and understand the manual.

Anyway,how do we know what android version for the tab? Anywhere can i look?

I have a 3 week old tab 2. It won't boot. I've tried the volume/power button. Nothing. Any other solutions?

Try putting it on the charger for a while. The battery could be totally dead.

I had the same issue last night. I read some forums and fixed the problem by plugging it into my laptop and then pressing the power button while tapping the screen. The battery image came up and after charge, was ready to roll again.

I'm on another forum for another Android tablet that I own. Some people on their have had a problem where the battery goes so dead that the only way to bring it back to life, is to leave it hooked up to a USB spot on a computer. I know a computer won't charge it but technically it will, just very slowly. I'm not sure technically speaking how this works, but if charging it in the wall doesn't work this might be worth a try. You would have to leave it on the computer for a few hours.

I've seen this problem before on other battery operated equipment, it seems to be caused by the battery being totaly discharged. If the battery has no charge at all (switches its self off while running)then the charger won't recognise the battery. There needs to be a very small amount of charge in the battery for the charger to recognise it. Hence if you can trickle charge the battery with your computer USB then the charger will recognise the battery and charge it.
We used to 'Flash' seemingly dead powertool batteries with another battery which would then allow the charger to recognise them and restore them.
