    Nothing to do with Motorhomes I'm afraid, but does anybody know anything about Samsung Galaxy tablets?? I tapped on a link on YouTube for a friend and the tab has completely frozen on page,, can't even turn tablet off!!! Any ideas,???
    It's showing and is frozen on the page and won't do anything else? What kind of bug has got me ? And cause I'm in Benidorm has anyone got any ideas as to where I could get it sorted?? It's a long shot but Here's hoping !!!! Cheers. Ian.

    Try holding in the power button for 10 secs. Should go off then you can reboot it.

    If your device freezes or hangs, you may need to close apps or turn off the device and turn it on again. If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the Power button and the Volume button down simultaneously for more than 7 seconds to restart it.16 Feb 2016

    Not easy without correct removal tools for the casing or it could be damaged....but that may be the only answer.

    Whatever got in there must have over-ridden the off button.

    Brill ironbru, power button with volume button did the trick !! Now can I risk turning it back on or is it screwed with a bug or something? Cheers. Xxb
