The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a great tablet. But, sometimes, it may not turn on and boot to a black screen. Generally, this is because of a software update or if you’ve completely drained your battery and the device doesn’t boot back up.
No worries, though; in this article, we’re going to go over exactly how to fix Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) black screen.
Method #1: Perform A Forced Restart
Generally, regardless of whether your tablet is undergoing a major or minor update, you’ll often end up with a black screen due to the nature of updates. So, if you just performed an update and can’t get your tablet to boot up, follow this method first:
- Press the Volume Down button and Power key at the same time for 10 seconds
- When the logo shows, release both keys, and your device should be able to boot up.
Most of the time, performing a forced restart should help get rid of your Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite not turning issue.
Method #2: Charge Up Your Device
In most cases, your battery ends up draining a lot when going through an update. Once that happens, you won’t be able to turn your tablet on. And, since your S6 Lite may be stuck on a boot loop, you’ll have to charge your device up before you opt for a forced restart once again.
Generally, we’ve seen this work with even the most arrogant of Samsung Tab S6 Lite’s with them booting back up to life as soon as we put some juice in the tablet. Do note, though, we recommend charging the device up to at least 50%, which means about an hour or so of charge before you attempt this method.
Otherwise, while your device may boot up, it may go back to a black screen as it simply won’t have enough charge to work properly.
Method #3: Inspect for Damage
If you’ve got here, we’re in uncharted territory now. Generally, this means that there’s a hardware issue plaguing your tablet and is not akin to a soft boot loop that we fixed earlier. So, you should immediately inspect for damage and check for any water near your tablet.
If you act quickly enough, you’ll be able to save your tablet from any permanent damage. If not, that black screen won’t be brimming with life anytime soon.
Once any physical damage is found, you’ll have to naturally move on to Method #4, a quite dreaded one if I may say so myself…
Method #4: Repair Your Device
Now that we’ve gone here, it is clear that your device has some physical issue that has led to the black screen issue. If that’s the case, you can either resort to Samsung to get your device officially repaired or head to a brick-and-mortar repair store near you. In either case, there may be damage to your tablet’s motherboard which resulted in this issue popping up in the first place.
