  1. Help please?
    My Tab Pro 10.1 (sm-t520) has gone into some kind of boot loop. I had run down the battery almost to nothing, so I closed my cover and plugged it in to charge. Now, 17 hours later I find it has gone into some kind of loop where the screen is blank most of the time, but the “Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro” screen will flash on and then off occasionally (every 10 seconds, although not regularly, and sometimes as quickly as 2-3 seconds). This happens when it is plugged in; when it is not plugged in, it does nothing even if I press the power button.

    Holding down the power and home button (up to 30 seconds) does nothing – it continues to flash on and off. Holding down power, home and volume up does nothing either.

    Holding power, home and volume down brings up a screen about installing a custom OS, but that flashes a few times and goes away after a few seconds before going back to the original problem. If I quickly press volume up after power, home and volume down I get a different screen, but that flashes away before I can read it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
