Tab keeps going off
Saturday 07th of September 2013
My Samsung Note 10.1 keeps going off and on by itself.About five days ago, my little siblings used the tab till the battery went as low as 0% and went off by itself. We tried to charge it and left it for about a day to charge. Since then anytime we try to turn it on, the screen just lights up, displays the phone model and goes off. It continues to do that till the battery is exhausted. We have tried several times but the situation remains unchanged. Any help?

I don't really want to have to factory reset the tablet and fence it on eBay, but short of switching it off and leaving it in a soundproof box each night, this currently seems like my best opt
