Default Tablet screen flashes on and off but never starts up?

Hi all,

So I have been unable to actually start up my tab for about a week now. When it's plugged into the wall, the charging screen flashes on and off continuously. When it's unplugged, it will flash the "Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0" screen on and off until the battery is dead.

Holding the power button does nothing. When I've tried plugging it into my computer, it is recognized for 2 seconds, then not, 2 seconds, then not.

How do I fix this?? There has been no impact of any sort or shady applications installed. I fell asleep one night with it working and the next morning it was broken!

Thanks in advance!

Try taking out the battery and then putting it back in. You can also try holding the volume button up and then pressing the power button, hold them both and see if it boots in to recovery. If it does, you can do a system restore.

Can the battery be removed from these devices? Easily? Without warranty issues?

This is a tab 2 forum correct?
