There is usually a method such as holding the on button for a longer period of time. If it is easy to do the other thing that I've found with all sorts of "smart" devices which turn "not-so-smart" is to remove the battery for a minute or so, then put it back in. Many times the unit will turn on as soon as the battery is reinstalled and work correctly again after that. Last ditch effort, unless someone knows about the Galaxy, is a hard reset, there may be a reset button somewhere on the unit, I don't think the Galaxy has a reset button. If the unit still does not turn on it may need servicing.
1. Try the on button for 15 - 20 seconds if you know it is charged
2. Try charging for an hour or two then the 15-20 second hold on button, #1 above.
3. Removed battery (I'd measure the battery voltage while I have it out) wait ~1 - 2 minutes & reinstall the battery. If it doesn't turn on by itself try #1.
4. Nothing works start a service ticket with Samsung, URL:

You might try searching there as well for an answer to see if there's anything I missed.

Will not start, battery charged


If it is an apple Ipad, Hold Down the power button and the Home button down for about 10 seconds then try powering on again.

If it is an android, there are multiple options on different brands.
1) Hold down the power button for about 5-10 seconds
2) Hold down the Power and Volume down + up for 30 or more seconds.

Hope this Helps!

My son's Nexus 7 will not power on at all...I just tried holding the power button down for 20-30 seconds, but still nothing....


In addition to holding the power button down, try holding both the power button and volume down button for 23-30 seconds and see if then the device comes up.

Hope that helps!

Will not power on


If you are not able to power the Kindle up, try the following:

1. Plug the Kindle into an alternate charger, if you do not own a second charger go down to Staples or Radio Shack and buy one
2. Plug in the Kindle to the new charger for 12 hours. If the Kindle attempts to power up hold the power button down until the Kindle powers down
3. When the Kindle is done charging, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, release, waiting 2 seconds, then press and release the power button normally.
4. The Kindle should be powering up
5. If the Kindle is not powering up, contact Amazon for a replacement.

Kindle does not charge properly


Let's try to reset the charger system.
Step 1: Unplug from the charger, press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds
Step 2: Plug into the charger. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
Step 3: Let charge for 12 hours
Step 4: Unplug form the Charger, run the Kindle until totally dead.
Step 5: When DEAD. Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds.
Step 6: Plug into the charger, let charge normally
If this does not reset the charging system you have either a faulty Kindle or a faulty charger, contact Amazon for replacement.

When I try to charge my samsung galaxy tablet a yellow triangle pops up on the battery sign


I had this same thing. The Batter image had a red line on the right side and the yellow triangle had an explanation point in the middle.

I searched the net and found a few solutions.

1. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds.

2. Hold the power button down and the volume down button at the same time for 30 seconds.

3. Just let it charge and over night and it should go back to normal.

I did all 3, in the order I wrote them. While in step 3, after about 5 minutes I pressed the power button and it showed that it was charging normal.

Hope this helps.
