The screen won't do any when you tap it?

Why won't the Tablet screen tap or do anything?

Depending on the model of your device, there are several possible reasons. You might have a button that is stuck, in which case fiddling with and unsticking the physical buttons of your Tablet could prove to be the solution you need. If you have a hold switch on your Tablet, that could be a possibility as to why your screen isn't working. Just disable that to start using your Tablet again.

You might also have a software issue that is gumming up the works. Try resetting the device to factory default settings to regain access to your Tablet. note that this will delete all of the data on the device. You can find a guide for how to complete this process in the main article.

My Galaxy tab 3 is stuck in a boot loop on the Samsung logo, I can access the menu to wipe data a reset but the following options screen will only allow me to select "no" as the volume button moves the cursor 2 places with each press, missing out the selection I need?

How do I get around this without going down the PC update route?

Yes, it is possible with some recovery menus to have this bug. Press the volume down button and ignore the fact that your option is not highlighted. Just count the times you have to press the volume down button to get to the option, do it, and press the power button. Even though the option will not be selected visually, it will work.

MY phone is rebooting I can't see reset when scrolling volume button?

I can't see reset when scrolling volume button

\\

If you are absolutely certain you are scrolling down as far as you can and if you still can't see the option then it is possible that the software on your phone is corrupted. It is time to take the phone into the store and get the device repaired or replaced.

I tried hard button restore and it just sits on the restore screen and doesn't progress?

I am trying to hard button restore a Galaxy S4 because I have forgotten the PIN and when I start it, it goes to the restore functionality but just sits in download and doesn't progress the restore

Instead of pressing and holding volume-down, home and, power buttons at the same time (this initiates the download mode), you will need to press and hold volume-up, home, and power buttons until you enter the recovery mode. From there, you can navigate to "wipe data/factory reset" with the volume button and select it with the power button. Confirm your action with "Yes -- delete user data" and reboot your smartphone by selecting "reboot system now".

My Samsung S6310 gallery won't open. What happened?

My phone was working fine until the other night when my gallery won't open, it just keeps on saying " not enough space.. delete some files".

How can I fix it without taking it to a shop?

I had dropped it on concrete one day and it cracked, but it still worked but the next day I dropped it in a dishwater and put it in rice for 5 days. It would cut on but when I touched the screen nothing moved and today it still doesn't work. I have tried: I've tried rice but it only half worked, I tried to cut it off for 2 weeks it only worked for 5 minutes then the screen stopped working again.. I think it was caused by: When I dropped it in the dish water
