Galaxy tab 3 8.0 lock Screen issues
Hi guys and girls I have just got a galaxy tab 3 for christmas all is well except for one niggely issue which is rather annoying, sometimes when i hit the home button or the power button to then unlock the screen, the screen will not react to touch and i cannot unlock it........the power button will turn off the screen again so i know the device is not fully frozen, also the back and settings keys will light up but they are also non touch sencitive.......if i hold in the power button It will bring up the power off/restart menu but still the screen will not react to touch and essentially the device is a brick!
I have realised that sometimes when i lift up the tablet essentially tilting it from flat on the table to up on its end the screen will light up as if i have hit the home or power button but i have not, this seems to sometimes coinside with the screen becoming non touch sencitive, ie if i lift it up and it happens to light up without being touched and i proceed to hit the power button to close the screen again, then rehit the button to illuminate it again, it then will become non touch sencitive, carrying on to do so until i set it down again to at which point the screen goes dark again making the unlock noise and when i hit the button to open the screen it is sencitive to touch again and will unlock with a swipe (i assume this is some sort of bug and the device does some sort of quick fix recalibration) but i would like to irradicate this problem if possible.
This is not happening on a regular basis but has happened maybe 5 - 6 times since i got it 3 days ago, the divice was bought off amazon so i have held off returning it for a few reasons....1 its hard to prove what the fault is as its not a constantly occouring problem...2 its not just a case of going into a shop and explaining, it would be an infuriating over the phone convo with a computer automated machine!
If anyone has any knowledge or advise regarding this issue please pass it on as this is a small problem putting a dampener on an otherwise awesome product!
