Glad to have been of assistance.
I had a problem where my Samsung epic 4g phone froze, I took out the battery and when I put it back in I restarted my phone and it was stuck on the samsung screen with the 4 lights coming on. It satys on then turns off and restarts same thing... I followed your steps, now it has the battery on it and it's stuck again. I have it plugged in... I'm so frustrated....
Please help me. *~*
This is exactly what mine was doing!!! It just goes off and starts over, I'm not turning mine off.
After doing your instructions to resolve this issue, it's now stuck on the battery pic with a semi circle in the middle....
I'd really appreciate any comments that will help resolve this issue so I can continue my life.
In some cases what happens is corruption builds up which eventually gets the better of the Tab and it ends up in a loop.
Option 1 ~ Keep on powering the Device and LEAVE it alone... If it switches off and reboots let it do this.
What it is doing at this stage is slowly rectifying the errors.
I had this problem once with my Tab and I have heard from the Samsung Service Centre near where I live of others who had similar issues.
Hopefully if the problem is not embedded the device should sort itself out.
Option 2 ~ Provided you can do the following, drop the device into Recovery Mode and perform a Factory Reset.
Option 3 ~ Take the device to your nearest Samsung Service Centre and let them sort it out.
This is easier than you may think and more often the case they can fix it there and then whilst you wait.
Thank you!! Just had that problem and your suggestion worked.
Thanks a million, like everyone else, I was in panic mode when it wouldn't turn on. I quickly googled what to do and this forum was found! Worked like a charm the touch the screen while hitting the button. Darn technology!

What a simple solution and totally awesome!! WHEW!! I was getting a bit concerned that Samsung Support Center was going to need a visit. :=)
Thank you HUGELY, Beards.
No problem... Pleased it worked out fine for you.
Many thanks for a clear and simple solution.
I have a 10.1 with Honeycomb (and the TouchWiz update) and I'm sorry to say the GT still has the problem.
Yes, unfortunately the 10.1 Tab does not support this method 'correctly'.
I'm working on finding a fix for the 10.1 Tab.
Awesome fix! So silly how little things make all the difference but figuring out the little thing is half the battle. Thanks for the answer.
No problem... Glad it worked out fine for you.
For anyone still with no boot problems, your issue can be hardware. I am helping a friend fix their tab 7 and it wouldnt boot/charge due to corossion in the charging socket. He lives near the beach so salt in the air is the cause of such corossion. He only had the tab about 3 months!
See my thread with picture attached: http://androidforums.com/galaxy-tab...aning-corossion-mainboard-galaxy-tab-7-a.html
Anyone that can help me in cleaning the corossion is appreciated.
Like many other users after my google search brought me here I joined just to say Thank You Beards.
I don't know what I would have done except head back to BB to return my new tab if I had not found this post.
So, many many thanks to Beards.
No problem AmHub. Pleased you got it working again.

I also wanted to say thanks! I have only had my tablet for three weeks, and I put it on the charger last night before bed. When I came to the tablet this morning, it wouldn't power on! I was so angry. So, I went to google to see what I could find. It directed me to this site and I registered just to see your answer! IT WORKED! Here is my HUGE thank you! Sincerely! Jennifer
