    Question Tab won't start up!

    Hi Folks!

    I have a 10.1 (2) GT-P5110 tablet about 14 months old, which after a night out in the cold (in car) won't now start up!

    I've tried leaving it on charge all day....still won't start normally.

    I've tried pressing the power on button and the volume button together (as I believe this forces a restart/ factory set up) still wouldn't re-start.

    All I've had out of the tablet in the last 24 hours is a picture of a something that looks a bit like a space invader saying it was downloading....only for the picture on the screen to disappear after a couple of seconds.

    Does anyone have any thoughts, can this be rectified by me at home without having to spend any money?

    Many thanks in advance

    Can you remove the battery?
    If so, leave it out for 10 minutes before replacing and rebooting.

    The space creature is the Android figure.

    I think you may have condensation on the battery contact, so dry them out with a soft cloth /paper towel.

    Hi Greenman,

    Thanks for this.

    I've not looked under the hood before on a tablet, but I guess this is as good a time as any. I'll search for how to remove the battery and try your suggestion.

    Many thanks
