plug Tab in to mains Charger, see what battery level shows, if it looks high enough (50% or more)

try a Hard Reset:- http://www.thegalaxy...dpost__p__28971

Hi, first time poster here. Thanks in advance for any words of help!

So, yesterday my wife's tablet refused to get past the Samsung load-up screen (the one just before the lock screen), despite a lot of restarting and switching off and back on again. After looking through some forum posts the sensible option seemed to be the factory reset (not an issue because I'd been good at backing up). Did the factory reset then booted it up again, feeling optimistic...

The feeling was short-lived when it took me to the Welcome screen (the one where it asks you to choose a language and press "accessibility" if you can't read it). I clicked Next at the bottom and the screen paused, went temporarily black, then took me back to the same Welcome screen. No matter how many times I press Next I can't get past it. Tried another factory reset but that didn't help.

Hope I've explained this properly. This seems to be a fairly unique problem as I've not found a similar post on the net.

Thanks again.
