I left my tab working perfectly one night and the next day it was dead. Had plenty of battery and was not on charger. Would not respond to any of the start up button sequences. Once got a flicker of a white line around edge of screen then never again. Plugged in to charger over night and no change. Charge LED does not illuminate.
Chatted with Samsung and conclusion is it's not worth sending to repair so started disassembly. Once cover off noticed felt tip pen markings on inside of cover and on one of the components. Also noticed a glue had been used top help secure the back cover. IS THIS NEW? Bought new in the box at Walmart but this sure looks like a refurbish. Does anyone know if factory makes such markings internally? Two months out of warranty so have nothing to lose but was very curious about this.
Also, has anyone experienced this problem?
