Galaxy Tab S3 will not switch on!

Hi all,

 

First post and unfortunately not a positive one.  My Tab S3 will not switch on.  I had just charged it and the screen was on.  Removed my microSD card to copy some data over.

 

Went back to the tablet to reinsert the card and the screen was off. I thought it had gone to sleep but nope, dead! 😞

 

Tried holding the power button in for longer still no life.  Put the tablet back on the charger and there is no indication that it is doing anything. Blank screen.

 

Any help or suggestions, going on a long trip tomorrow and want to take the tablet with me but now looks unlikely.

 

Please help!

Tried this, but it didn't show anything after the blue screen with the "installing system update" message.
