Galaxy tab 3, screen has power but is black.
Having an issue w/what I think is the latest kitkat update.
I put off the installation for like a week, finally decided to do it on Friday night.
Install went without a hitch, rebooted a couple times and finally rebooted and everything appeared to be working as it should.
Anyways, this morning I notice my battery is down to like 25% so I plug in (Original charger and cable)
Let it charge throughout the day and go to pick it up (Had plans that required my tablet be on a decent charge)
I unplug it and power on, I can hear the startup chime but my screen is black (not totally black, it still has that powered up glow)
I've tried every button combination/sequence I can think of, have disconnected/reconnected the battery, Still No Joy..
WTF, Kitkat update is the only thing thats changed on my tablet lately and now its blown away..Its never been dropped, is always in its case except for when I had to disco/reco the battery, not a scratch/dent/blemish on it.
Thanks for the input Joy, Glad it has helped someone as well as yourself out.
Referring to my first post you'll see "I've tried every button combination/sequence I can think of, have disconnected/reconnected the battery, Still No Joy.." No pun intended w/the "Still no Joy" part.
Anyways, tried powering the unit up again this morning (with power/vol +/- buttons annnd nothing, Same old same old.getting along great w/my EVGA Tab but I do miss my GT3.

I have a similar problem. The screen is as it should be when my Tab 4 is booting up but as soon as has booted up the screen looks as though someone took a scissor and cut the screen up into hundreds of thin horizontal strips and then tried to put it back together again. I reset the Tab to original factory settings but then it became even worse. Don't know if I have a virus (no protection - yes stupid) or I have dropped it and disturbed something internally.
Would like to avoid taking it to a shop and paying exorbitant fees.
