Hi there, I am having a problem with my Tab 3 8.0. It will not charge or turn on, it's basically dead. I can confirm that the battery is not dead (i checked with a multimeter) its currently at 4.10V. I have tried all online methods (unplugging battery and plugging back in, button combinations, etc. and still no joy. I have also replaced the charging port so that's, not the problem either...

Any suggestions as to why I cannot get it to power on would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to Android Central! How long did you hold the Power button for? Press and hold it for at least 20 seconds and see if anything happens.
