Solutions to the Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 Problem in Power
Here are the solutions that you can apply:
1. Factory Reset
A factory reset will let you eliminate the major errors caused by apps or the software which prevent you from starting your device properly. There are actually two ways to do this in the Galaxy Tab GT-P1000. But before this, ensure that you have backed up all your important data first.
a. Factory Reset Using the Keys
First, turn off your Galaxy Tab GT-P1000. Then, Press and hold the Volume Up key. Next, press the Power button for a short period only.
From there, you will encounter the Recovery Menu. Highlight the Wipe Data/Factory Reset option using the Volume key. After that, select it using the Home button.
For this method, press the Menu key first. Proceed to Settings. Then, go to Privacy followed by Factory Data Reset. Lastly, select the Reset Tablet command.
2. Replace Faulty Parts
If the hard reset or the factory reset does not work, you are probably looking at a hardware problem already. Check if your charger or battery is no longer working well or check if the port of your charger is loose. If any of these is the case, replace the faulty part.
3. Check the Circuitry
If the previous solutions do not or work or you have noticed that your phone has been overheating frequently, have its wirings checked.
