    My Samsung galaxy tab 3 completely died for the first time a couple days ago, since then i have not been able to get past this screen (the attached picture) when i plug it in, no matter how long i leave it plugged in it never changes. i have tried holding down the power button for 30sec and just about every other button combo that i could think of or find on the internet. i even took the back off and unplugged that battery and left it for a long time. I have tried 6 different cables and every power source possible(wall charger, car charger, PC, car power converter, different wall usb connectors too). basicly im running out of things to try, i also cleaned out the charger port with a Q-Tip.

    Thanks ahead of time for the help, sorry if this is already resolved in a different thread. i looked but i couldn't find a solution for my specific problem.

    Does the samsung logo show up? did you hold power+home+vol down? If it cant go into download mode or recovery I dont know much.

    I used to have the tab 3 10"(GT-P5210), I did brick it my first time trying to flash a rom haha but I actually fixed it which was surprising.

    If you can enter download mode, You should try to find a download link for the stock firmware and download ODIN v3.7 and force a file dump of the firmware, I dont know if it works in your situation though.

    If all else fails, call Samsung. sorry for your loss buddy, the struggle is real

    Did you have any luck with this one? I have the same issue on a Note 10.1, tried everything you have tried also with no luck!
