Question Samsung Tab S8 Won't Boot/Cycle/Reset

Jul 4, 2022
Daughter was playing a Play Store app on her tablet and she said it froze. A simple power cycle wouldn't work. So I tried a soft reset and it went to a black screen. Ever since then, it won't do anything (power on, cycle, hard/soft reset). I plugged it in to charge and tried all again. Still nothing. Hoping someone can provide recommendations I have not been able to find or do yet. Thanks!


Most likely it'd simply dead. You can try holding in the power button for about 30 seconds, release it and hold it in again, see if it turns on after that. If you can't find any other things online to do, it's simply due to the fact the thing is dead and all those methods won't work on a broken device.
