In this post, we will show you what to do if your Galaxy Tab S6 won’t turn on shortly after the Android 11 update. Basically, there are just a couple of procedures you should do to determine if your tablet has to be checked by a technician or not. Continue reading to learn more. 

There are times when firmware-related problems may occur after an update. Most people would think it’s due to a bad update, but most of the time, it’s just due to a pretty minor system crash. However, there are also times when such a problem occurs due to physical and liquid damage. So you really have to do something about your tablet. With that being said, here’s what you should do: 

First solution: Check for signs of physical and liquid damage

Before anything else, what you have to do is to make sure that such a problem isn’t due to either physical or liquid damage. So you have to do a physical inspection on your tablet to see if there are cracks or dents that would suggest the device won’t turn on because it’s damaged. Anything that will affect your phone’s ability to power on will surely leave a trace on the outside. 

Aside from that, also inspect the charging port to see if there is moisture in it. The liquid damage can also mess up your tablet’s circuitry and hinders it from turning on. 

After making sure your Tab S6 does not have any signs of physical or liquid damage, then proceed to the next solution. 

Second solution: Do the Forced Restart

As long as there are no visible signs of physical damage, you can always expect such a problem to be a minor firmware issue. It’s possible that the firmware crashed and left your tablet to become unresponsive. But most of the time, it can be fixed by doing the Forced Restart, which simulates battery removal. Here’s how you do it on your Galaxy Tab S6: 

  1. Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for at least 8 seconds. This will trigger your tablet to boot up. 
  2. When the logo shows on the screen, release both keys and allow the device to continue the boot process. 

What you have to look out for is the Samsung logo because if you can make it to show on the screen, then it means that the problem is already fixed. 

However, if your tablet is still stuck on the black screen and won’t turn on even after doing the forced restart, then move on to the next solution.

Third solution: Charge your tablet and do the Forced Restart

It is always possible that such a problem is just due to a drained battery. Most of the time, that’s not really a problem as the device would immediately respond once connected to the charger. However, if the firmware crashed before the tablet powered down, then there’s something you have to do than just charge it. Here’s the solution for that: 

  1. Plug the charger to a working wall outlet. 
  2. Using the original charging cable, connect your tablet to the power adapter. 
  3. Leave the device connected to the charger for at least 10 minutes, regardless of whether the charging sign shows or not. 
  4. After that and while it’s still charging, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key. 
  5. If the logo shows, then it means that the problem is fixed. Just allow the tablet to continue the boot process. 

However, if it’s still won’t respond even after doing this procedure, then it’s time to have it checked. There can be a problem with the hardware. 

And those are the solutions you should do if your Galaxy Tab S6 won’t turn on after Android 11. We hope that this troubleshooting guide can help you one way or the other.
