    Default Samsung Galaxy tablet wont power on.

    I have a friends galaxy tablet kids version that wouldn't power on, they bought a new battery as its about 7 years old and asked to fit which i have but it still wont power up.
    No visible damage to it and not sure what else to check.

    Nada although i suspect the charge port may be knackered, did some googling and it appears this model is known for powering on issues. Tried all the suggestions of button combinations and unplugging battery etc to no avail..

    Check for bent/shorted pins in the charge socket.

    Happens with that stupid one way socket....

    I might be getting models mixed up but it could be the main board. I had one that wouldn't power up - tried new batteries etc. Got a second unit that'd a damaged screen - swapped the boards and the unit worked (with what I thought was a faulty battery). I think it might have been a faulty power chip but not sure. Unit is now dead after abuse,

    At 7 years, I would bin it.

    An 8 inch Samsung Tab A is about $250 and the 10 inch not really much more. They have kids mode built in.
