    Exclamation Stuck on Boot-screen & Can't Access Recovery Mode

    Hey guys, I'm new here so feel free to move this thread wherever is appropriate in case it's against the forum's rules or whatnot.

    So, I have a problem with my Android table trying to boot up. First of all, when it boots up it gets stuck on boot-screen (ie. loading the OS). I left it hours on until the battery drained out, so I can confirm that it remains stuck at boot-screen all that time.

    I tried to get into Recovery Mode by using the Power + Volume Up buttons, but it only partially succeeds. I get a big green Android with blue lines moving on its belly and a blue loading bar below it. That's how I know it's loading the Recovery Mode. However, after a second, it goes to the dead android laying down with a red exclamation mark.

    Another thing I noticed is that if I connect the tablet to the computer through the USB cable, two storages (G: and I: ) appear on My Computer. However, their icons look slightly transparent. When I click on them I get a message saying that I can't access the respective storage. I tried to format them by right-clicking "Format...", but it doesn't allow me to do that.

    Last time I used my table was when I was reading some articles on it though Adobe Reader, then the tablet had to shutdown because the battery ran out. So I connected my table to the computer to get charged. Usual procedure. Then when it was fully charged, turned it on and got into this mess. I don't understand what just happened.

    So, can anyone here help me out? Had it for two years, with NO previous problems. It was working like a charm. I'd be very grateful if you have solution to this. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums. Is the battery removable?

    I don't know because I'm not sure if I can open up the table inside. It has two very tiny screws on one side which I did unscrew in hope of opening it up but doesn't seem to open. For now, I'll say no to the question.

    The battery is working, in case you're thinking that it might be faulty. I tried the Recovery Mode procedure both connected to the PC (charging) and without the USB cable, even when it was fully charged. I also discharged all the battery and charged it again just in case, but no results.

    So, not easily removable like the galaxy S or Note line. OK. You can try holding the power button. That simulates a battery pull.

    Tried holding the power button many times before. It just shuts down and when I turn it on, it gets stuck at the booting screen.

    OK. Pressing volume down and power often boots into recovery. You can try that and select wipe cache partition.

    The only combination of buttons that the tablet seems to do something is only Power + Volume Up (not down). And like I said, when it's about to enter in Recovery Mode where I'm supposed to see options such as Wipe Data, Wipe Cache, etc., the dead laying android shows up and I'm stuck there, much like at boot screen. There are no options on screen to select.

    Personally, at this point, the only thing I could think of was that somehow the internal memory (not the external SD card) of the tablet got busted. This might explain the two observations I made:

    1. When I connect it to PC, I get two removable disks (G: and I: ) which cannot be accessed nor formatted through Windows Explorer. Like they are locked down. One should have been the internal memory disk and the other should have been the external SD card. However, I'd like to point out that I'm NOT using nor mounted an SD card in my tablet for months now because I had got corrupted. So let's not focus too much disk ( I: ).

    2. Simply can't access the data in the internal memory which triggers the Recovery Mode, like that partition bit the dust.

    Thus yesterday I started to believe that the internal memory got corrupted so there was no way to access anything, hence why Recovery Mode didn't work. Heck, nothing worked.

    But after a long day of research, I wanted to test one thing: if I could actually access the internal memory manually, so this is what I observed:

    Droid Explorer:

    I downloaded Droid Explorer and connected the tablet to the PC. Surprisingly, it detected the device AND its contents. I was able to see the internal memory. I can't confirm that everything was intact because I don't know what essential folders and files it needs to have, but more importantly, I saw folders and files. Using Droid Explorer, I clicked the button which told the table to reboot in Recovery Mode. Sadly, it only rebooted the tablet and got stuck at boot-screen again. I tried to copy/move files around but since I was new to Droid Explorer, I didn't know how to test that. So I eventually decided to use the most common method everyone uses, ADB.

    ADB

    Installed Android SDK and set up ADB. At first, I was messing around with command lines and I can confirm that ADB was detecting files. Moreover, as a test, I managed to successfully
    Code:
    adb pull [insert path]
    the System folder in the internal memory onto my computer. I also deleted apks which I thought could potentially cause this loop problem at boot-up. So all of this worked.

    Then, I went straight to the most obvious thing to do. Using
    Code:
    adb shell --wipe_cache 
    
    AND
    
    adb shell --wipe_data
    I tried to either either wipe the data or cache. However, I got the following message:

    Wipe Cache:
    Code:
    C:\.........\sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
    root@android:/ # adb shell --wipe_cache
    adb shell --wipe_cache
    error: device not found
    255|root@android:/ #
    Wipe Data:
    Code:
    C:\.........\sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
    root@android:/ # adb shell --wipe_data
    adb shell --wipe_data
    error: device not found
    255|root@android:/ #
    I also tried fastboot according to others, but I got this:

    Fastboot Wipe
    Code:
    C:\.........\sdk\platform-tools>fastboot -w
    < waiting for device >
    Then it seems it's waiting forever.

    So yeah, sorry for the long post, but I wanted to explain everything I did.

    Thanks for helping out, man.

    Not sure what else to suggest. I can tell ADB can't recognize the device. Maybe installing updated drivers? As to where to get them I am not sure.

    Same here, I'm using note 10.1 (N8000). I already installed original firmware from sammobile, but it continuously stuck at boot screen and failed to access recovery mode by pressing volume up + power button. Glad to hear anybody can solve this problem.. thank you.

    I have the same problem but with a galaxy s4. It has to be plugged into the wall and it doesnt turn on and if I hold the power and up keys down and it just gets stuck on "recovery booting". Then if I press and hold down the power and down key and select continue it gets stuck downloading. Or if i select cancel(restart) the phone will just white outs and has a line in the screen.

    Guys I'm having exactly the same problem with my Point of View Protab 26!
    When I hold the power and the volume+ button, I directly end up on the "dead android with the exclamation mark", and any attempt
    to get to the actual recovery options seems to fail. After nearly a day of research and trying pretty much any kind of advice the internet had to offer so far, I'd be eternally grateful if any of you has a solution
