    I have been charging & recharging (in every wallsocket at work & home, and car and 3 diff chargers) what seemed to me at this pt - a dead droid -- when all I did was look at this advice page, hold the volume buttons down, as suggested, for 20 secs -- and it came astoundingly, and loudly, back to life!
    Thanks, y'all!

    hey buddy you don't have to worry any more because you just hold volume down button first and then holding the volume down button press volume up button .it will take you to the recovery. then download an android 4.2.2 custom rom then install it
    i had the same problem this worked for me

    Mine when plugged in kept cycling between the circle, battery charging icon at 0% then black. If left plugged in all night, it would charge.

    I have tried everything except disconnecting the battery.

    The fix: while plugged in hold the power button and home button at the same time until it turns on. Worked great for me.

    Let me know if this works for you as well.

    Thanks
    You are a life savior!!! I did this with my tablet but instead I push down the volume and power button for a minute or so and it came all the way on and is charging perfect now thanks for your help!

    I got my (7" tab 3) tablet back today from Samsung--warranty deemed void because I removed the back cover. After hours of desperate, last-ditch strategies and button-mashing, I got it to turn back on normally. Here's what I did:

    1) Remove the back cover of your UNPLUGGED tablet. (Youtube has good tutorial videos. This will void your warranty.)
    2) Disconnect the battery (small wires leading to a tiny rectangle at the bottom of the board).
    3) While the battery is disconnected, PLUG IN the tablet.
    4) Reconnect the battery (I felt mine "snap" twice into place).
    5) Turn on the tablet (mine came on immediately after I pressed the power button).

    I haven't seen a tip like this on other forums, but it's worth a try if nothing else is working for you. Cheers.
    Kara C, your technique worked! I tried all the others, except for heating the battery. Thanks so very much! It's charging now

    I had to remove the sim and sd cards then plugged into my computer and held the power button and volume DOWN together and the battery sign came up in about 5 seconds. It had 22%. After that, I started it normally by pressing the power button.

    I had tried this several times with power and volume + button and it did not work......
    Holding power and home buttons also did not work..

    After trying everything else, including disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, this is the only method which worked. Thank you. Back off, battery disconnect, charger in (screen comes on), battery reconnect. Strange thing is battery recharging logo shows the battery is about 80% charged. Then I perform the power and volume button reset, the tablet then starts to charge up again, showing battery charge at 0%.
    Taking the back off was tricky and I made a crack by the audio port, so I am not happy with this problem, which I assume is software?

    I have a Galaxy S2 tablet; 9.7" screen with LTE. 2 months old. When I plug it into the cars 12V system using a generic adapter/via Samsung USB cable, IT REFUSED TO CHARGE. I have tried 3 different adapters and still no use. Is there a special Samsung adapter for this and who sells it?

    REAL FIX PAY ATTENTION TO EVERY DETAIL

    In response to all, this happened to my Samsung tab 2 7.0.

    There are much simpler steps than removing casing & battery. Whilst the tablet is performing the odd activity of temporarily charging and then powering off, hold down the "Volume up and down key" at the same time. This will bring you into "Boot loader screen" from there on wards you want to select "reboot device", something relevant to rebooting. NOTE: Do not select clear/partition/factory reset device as this may worsen the situation. After selecting "reboot device" you device will attempt to turn on but then will switch off straight away. Do not worry, instead be patient & do not touch any controls or power wires as then the device will automatically turn back on and start charging automatically with the battery symbol appearing as normal.

    Please do feel free to contact me if anything is misunderstood.

    I hope all your tablets successfully boot correctly

    May the force be with you

    - Thank you

    Super frustrating. Tablet won't even turn on. I have already tried this. Please help.������ It will not turn on the reboot screen.

    I was playing a game and let the battery drained to zero. Yes, zero. I have never done that before. The tablet completely shut itself down. Like many, the tablet came on with the charger and show 1 bar and reboot. It does this again and again. It was not properly shut down and that cause it to conserve energy since the battery is zero, but it will not charge either. I tried to hold the volume button, this does kick the tablet to start. However, once it reached the display screen the tablet begin to power off immediately. Sometime it did not made it to the display screen and shut down before that. Keep on trying and keep pressing the off button repeatedly until you see the off/restart menu. Be quick because you only have barely a second before it power itself off. You want to properly shut this off by touching the off option on the screen. Once I'm able to do that, the battery show all the bars of being charge and will be on a suspended/sleep mode while charging. No more 1 bar and reboot over over again. Hope that help. People still have the tablet in 2016.

    Well like most of you I have tried different chargers sockets and lap tops to charge my Galaxy tab 2tab 7 inch- and almost having the will to leave me entirely
    A little helping hand of "hold the sound level up and down keys together for ten seconds" there was a boost of life from my tab and it rebooted and I left it alone for about an hour
    charging on the pc and it was quite happily filling up its little power bars - thank you
    This one worked. I held them. Down for about a minute. Thanks! I'd tried each of the volume buttons with the power button, but not both volume buttons together.

    Thanks for the tip about using car charger.
    My Tab2 10.1 appeared dead, fallen off its perch!. No sign of life whatsoever. Tried charging using supplied lead. nothing. tried alternative pressings of all buttons and for differing lengths of time. Nothing. connected to car charger.....YIPPEE!!!! thing works. Mine had been on charge for about an hour last night. taken off charge, worked and then when I tried to wake it up later, nothing. On connection to car charger the charging symbol illuminated showing 90% charge so must be some sort of fault with sensor. fingers crossed!!!!!

    Just wanted to contribute back to the group.

    Mine is a tab s2 and it just randomly stopped turning on one day. I tried a number of different button combinations with no luck, but with the above combination (power+volume down) and it would show some life with the samsung loading logo page and then go to the encrypted pin signin page and then turn off (seemed as if the battery died). One time I got the pin in quickly and it went to the home page but the battery icon had a red X over it and wasn't charging despite being plugged into the OEM charger.

    Based on some research, I ended up booting the tablet into recovery mode, wiping the cache partition and then rebooting. And now it seems to be turning on and charging properly. Link below for instructions to boot into recovery mode and wiping cache. Hope this helps someone!
