my samsung tablets comes on, charges and has sound but the screen is blank, i can't use it
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the tablet and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the tablet.
Let me know the results please
Thank you

Thanks Henry, then we will try to get to the recovery menu.
Can you hold the power for 60 seconds, then release.
Then hold the volume UP and power until it enters the recovery menu.
Tell me please if you can get to this.

Hi still nothing happening

It is the screen backlight that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the backlight that shorts out, and why you see nothing on the screen.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the tablet to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

This is a second had one brought from a store, would it still have the same cover, we brought two of them for xmas presents last December.

It all depends on the store Henry, and what they sold it to you wish

Thank you for all your help.

I will do the rating for you,

The screen keeps saying about a trail monthly thing, however I don't want that, I will just use the service as of when I need to.

Do I just delete all this now

Shame we could not get the tablet going.

Its an offer Henry, so you do not need to take them up on this.
Sorry it could not get running but we can only go through the causes for this and confirm the issue which we did.
If I can help you with anything else, please let me know
Thank you
