    Completely Unresponsive Touch Screen on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

    Hi, I have just encountered a problem with my tablet and dont know what to do.

    A couple of weeks ago my charger broke and it took about 2 weeks for my new one to arrive. When it did i plugged it in and charged it but then when i turned it on the touch screen is completely unresponsive.

    I have searched online for fixes but to no avail. I have done a hard reset of my device which reset the device but the screen still wont work so now im stuck on the initial select language screen you get when you first get the tablet and i cant do anything else.

    Does anybody have any ideas at all about what i can do as i cant afford to buy a new one.

    Thank you

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Make sure the battery is charged. Try doing the Hard Reset again and see if that clears the problem.

    Try plugging it into the usb port on your pc for an hour or so. Sometimes this gives the OS a jolt and corrects issues. Be sure your PC stays on and does not go into sleep mode.

    Graham1030 and Yag, the trickle charge that Jeffrey described in post #4 is for several hours! You can then follow up with a charge from the outlet. You might want to read through our http://www.galaxytabforums.net/forum...intenance.html If none of those suggestions work, a factory reset may be in order http://www.galaxytabforums.net/forum...ng-tablet.html If that doesn't help, hopefully your devices are still under warranty!

    Same problem

    Partially solved: 3-12-14

    problem 3-11-14:
    I did hard reboot. Now I am stuck on the select language screen as well and can't select "Next" or the "language" drop down. With mine I can hold the power button and the dialog box will appear asking if I want to shut down or reboot. I CAN SELECT BOTH and shut down or reboot with no problems! I am baffled! Please someone help!

    update 3-12-14 Partial solution:
    I found the CWM tar. file for my Tab 2. When I installed it from Odin it enabled the landscape mode. I turned it up right and the touch started working allowing me to select "select language" and "Next". I went on to finish setting the Tab up.
    Now there seems to still be an issue. Just in random spots the touch will freeze up like it did in the initial set up. Not everything just in random spots. Like when typing just one letter or number will quit working. I turn / rotate the Tab from landscape to the upright or reading mode then it all starts works without any glitches.

    Possible solution: I really need a custom Rom for this Tab 2 P5113. I have not been able to find any custom Roms that didn't have a broken links or that wasn't a stock update file. I need a good custom stable ROM. I have found forums that say the P5110 will work with the P5113 but everyone that I have tried get rejected when I go to install it from the SD card. I really would like to find A tar file custom ROM that I could install from Odin.



    What I have tried already: 3/09-11/14


    1. Hard reset
    2. Loaded Odin on my computer then reload factory Rom
    (I would try a different Rom through Odin if someone can direct me to one that would work for the Tab 2 P5113)
    3. Trickle charge / hard charge / charged from computer
    4. Taking battery out. This seemed pretty stupid in my book. 2 P5113)
