So this thing just happened to me. I was just playing with the Galaxy Note, scrolling through instagram online shop, when my phone (which is a different device) started ringing. After I finished focusing on my phone and replied stuff, I went back to the Galaxy Note. It was dead.
Was the battery empty? No, it was still around 50-something percent.
Was it struck by lightning? No, since I didn’t plug it in or anything. Mind you, it was raining cats and dogs at the time.
So what happened? I have no idea but it was dead. It died on me. I can’t restart. There’s no proof of life whatsoever when I tried to charge it.
So the next best thing I can do is google. Hahaha. With the search “galaxy note 10.1 mati total”, I automatically clicked on the first page which is THIS. It gave me some instructions what to do when your galaxy note just died out on you.
They told you to press the power button and the up volume button at the same time until a recovery mode program comes up on the screen. There’s more on the website though, but well that’s just what I did and it magically starts again! Yeay, so happy! My galaxy tab restarted and now is good to go. No trips to the Samsung Center is necessary! Saves me time too! Thanks internet!
