Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!
That is quite a dilemma!
Even if you send the tablet for repair, it will cost you because it is outside of the warranty time-frame of 1 year. To be honest, the cost of repair will probably cost around or more than the price of purchasing a new tablet. Amazon may refund you the cost or issue an Amazon credit if you call them and speak with a helping supervisor (I have done that multiple times) but it is not something that they have to do since it has been over a year.
At this point, I would suggest trying to get a refund from Amazon and if that does not work then you will need to contact Samsung to see if they will provide any discounts for an upgrade due to the issue.
