We are going to force a restart of your tablet, you will need to use the button on the side of the tablet to do this. You can also lay it flat if it is easier but you will want to stabilize the side so it does not move when you press the power and volume down buttons.
You will need to press and hold both buttons at the same time.
Continue to hold the buttons till the Samsung logo appears, this can take up to 30 seconds so continue to hold.
The reboot can take up to a minute to reboot.
Your Tablet should now be working. If it isn’t working try to force restart it using the steps above making sure to press both buttons at the exact same time.
It can be upsetting when your device freezes on you or stops working. By forcing a restart on your Samsung Galaxy A8 tablet it can fix the frozen or stuck screen without impacting any of the content on the device, so you don’t lose important information not recently backed up. We do recommend you back up all data or set your device to complete this automatically in case you can’t get back into your tablet. If you have problems with fine motor skills, you will want to get another person to complete the force restart for you.
