    Default Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Frequently Rebooting

    Starting today, my Tab 2 10.1 has just started rebooting constantly. Sometimes it will be fine, but then whatever I app I am in will freeze and the machine will reboot. There seems to be no rhyme or reason. It is staying booted up for less and less time. Any suggestions or advice? Hoping to avoid factory reset, but I have a feeling that may be my only option at this point.

    Instead, you can reboot into recovery. Power down. Then press volume up and power at the same time. Release when you see Samsung's logo. You will get a highlighted menu that you navigate with volume rockers, and accept with power buttons. Scroll down to wipe cache partition, and hit power. Takes a few seconds, then hit power to reboot system. See if that helps. A factory reset does this during the process, this just doesn't delete any apps.

    Unfortunately, that did not help, but that is handy to know for the future.

    Afraid I am currently out of ideas. Any new apps recently downloaded? If so, uninstall and slowly add them back...like a day or two between.

    I had exactly the same problem which brought me to this thread. I previously did a factory reset which helped for a while before the problem reared its ugly head again, with the tablet rebooting up to 10 times a day. Somehow Google play service was one of the processes running on the tablet. After I have uninstalled it, the rebooting stopped and in fact my tablet has been running now without a reboot for four days. Only problem is that my tablet is now constantly reminding me to install/update/enable it.

    On my tab 2. If I press the switch and down volume key to go to my other menu it tells me no commands. How can I resolve this.

    My Tab 2 was much more stable with 4.1. I'm on 4.1.2 now and have zero problems. Luckily by reading this form I avoided 4.2.
