Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - touchscreen not working

    My Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just 5 days old. Today after working on it after an hour, I shut off the Tab when I got a 'low battery' alert. Everything was fine when I shut the power off. And when I took out the Tab again to recharge it, I find that the touchscreen is not working.

    I tried to shut off the machine again but because the touchscreen is not working, I am not able to choose the 'power off' option.

    Has anyone else faced this problem?

    Please help with your inputs.

    Try rebooting by holding power button down for 10 seconds.

    Thanks Angelsfan. Rebooting helped and the touchscreen is working again.

    I had the "touchscreen stops responding" issues with 2 of the 3 Galaxy Tabs I owned. I hope that issue doesn't happen again, but it probably will so my recommendation is to go ahead and get a replacement while you still can.
