Galaxy note 10.1 (2014) Wifi and bluetooth won't enable - samsung offers no support
The wifi and bluetooth do not switch on any more. The led remains light green forever and I get continiously the message "turning on" in settings.
I have the Galaxy note 10.1 (2014 edition - wifi) device since early April and worked absolutely fine till 12 June. Up to that point I hadn't done any intervention (rooting etc) to the device nor misused it by any means. In fact I was completely ignorant of rooting, roms etc.
I addressed the problem to the local Samsung customer support service (Italy). Unfortunately for me I bought the device from US while I live in Italy. They told me that the guarantee doesn't apply for tablets in Europe and that they cannot fix the device. I suggested to pay for fixing it and received the answer that "since it is a US sold device we don't have the means to fix it because of software incompatibility (!), you have to send it to the US". I addressed the problem to the US customer service and got the reply "send it to a friend or a relative in the US so that he brings it to a local repair shop". Unfortunately that is not an option for me.
Since then and before actually selling the device on ebay for spare parts I have:
done factory reset
removed the battery and installed it again
rooted the device
deleted some wifi related files that are supposed to cause the problem in S4 phones
installed new roms
wiped out all memore and re-installed an original rom
Nothing worked! However I still don't think it is a hardrware problem. It started all of a sudden.
I am right now looking for someway to test if this is a hardware problem in the end eg some relevant application, or some diagnostic mode I could flash in the device to see if the problem really comes from the WIFI circuitry.
Does anybody know if and how this would be possible, testing the actual status of the hardware related to bluetooth and wifi?
