Samsung T800 tablet Has died

I have a Samsung 10 Tab. Screen is suddenly dead. No previous clues. Logged off last night as usual. No response when connected to power cable. Desktop does not recognise tablet. I suspect battery failur or virus. (virus checker has been uninstlled) Out of guarantee - How would I check since there is no input port?

Hey FB I think you are on to something. P+V worked. Battery critically low. (0%) I guess that it was not switched off properly,last use. I am currently charging. Very grateful,as I can only use PCs. David Belbin. PS I neglected to say that the unit has been unexpectedly re-booting when using the Kindle app. Do you think that there could be a connection if the battery was faulty? DGB

leave it charging overnight

place it in a bisciut tin or something smilar that is none flammable just in case.

see what it charges to and retry the app if still rebooting uninstall and reinstall the app.

new battery about £20 from amazon but getting in at them isn't easy.

"Getting in at them isn't easy" but You Tube will show me how? Tablet seems OK.- charged to 100% overnight seems that I was panicking unnecessarily- Looking for replacement as I need it in these restricted times. Thanks again David
