    I've had my Tab S3 for 27 days, and last night while reading using the Kindle App, my screen blinked twice in about 5 minutes and then completely fritzed out. It's green and flickering and I cannot power down the tablet, hard reset or anything else. I can turn the screen on and off with the power and home buttons, but when the screen comes on...green, flickering garbage. I called Samsung Tech Support and they walked me through reset steps, none of which worked.

    I think it's a hardware issue, but thought I'd see if anyone has experienced something similar before I sent it in to Samsung for repair.

    Attached image is the closest representation I can find of what the screen looks like, except my tablet is green with flickering lines. Taking a picture of the screen doesn't show the issue.

    Yeh, that certainly looks like a hardware problem, repair service required.
