Samsung Tab A 10.5 Inch (2018) Won't turn on. I have tried charging and holding power and volume down for 15 seconds but not luck. It also doesn't show that it is charging at all. Any ideas would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Hi @Minecraft1834 

 

Have you tried charging the Tablet with a different charger and also tried your charger with a different device, to establish if the problem lies with the charger or the Tablet?

Yes I already have tried another charger and I used the tablet's usb c charger to charge my phone the other day.

Apologies, @Minecraft1834. If the charger is charging your phone but not the Tablet, the problem must lie with the Tablet. How long have you had it and where did you purchase it?

Hi, I took it to repair and they said the CPU was fried. Tablet only lasted a year or two which is a disappointment. Will only be buying iPads in the future.
