    After an update a few ago my galaxy tab 3 won't get past the Samsung logo screen. I've tried all the usual stuff.

    1. Plug it in to a charger - it starts up get to the Samsung logo screen and stays there. I left it appears to get a full charge.

    2. soft reset - gets to the Samsung logo screen and stays there till it runs out of battery.

    3. hard reset - using pwr-vlmup-home buttons shows Android screen, shows android on side with warning triangle, shows Samsung logo and stays there.
    I've tried doing the hard reset holding the pwr-vlmup-home buttons and then:
    -keeping them held
    -letting go of all when I see the Galaxy Tab 3 screen.
    -Keeping the volume up button held until I see the Android screen
    -etc

    4. Download mode - using pwr-vlmdown-home - does nothing

    Help
