Samsung Galaxy tab 3 8.0 won't charge and turn on

Hi, my Samsung Galaxy tab 3 8.0 stop charging and won't start.
I open it and disconnect and reconnect the battery but the problem still exist.

Also I try hold power button (30 and 60sec) , power + volume up, power + volume up + home

Again with no effect.
So Is there any other way to fix it ?

P.S. when I disconnect the battery I charged it with charger connect directly to red and black (+ and -) cable to 4.2 V. So the battery is charged.

I connected it in tablet and the voltage is 4.18 ,when press power button voltage drop a little to 4.16 but again won't start .

I've yet to see any of these repaired.

Well, folk do try but the cost to repair (CTR) is always over what you can get another one for.

Also, the model you noted appears to be from 2013. Time to recycle it.

My experience with the same type of problem

I had the original Samsung Tab Pro (12 inch display) that I experienced the same issue. About 6 months prior I had the internal battery replaced since the original one didn't seem to hold the charge more than a couple hours. Eventually, I just recycled the tablet because it was getting too expensive to try to get it repaired again. I am now using the Samsung Tab 7+ and I am very happy.

Sometimes it is easier to replace such devices than pour more money trying to fix them.

Samsung Galaxy tab

If your tablet still won't turn on, plug it into the power adapter and electric socket. Wait a minute or two to see if the machine indicates that it is receiving a charge, and then try again to press and hold the wake/sleep button for longer than seems needed. If this does nothing it is most likely that the power adapter or the battery may be defective.
