So about past couple days my tab will be in sleep. When I first turn on the screen is this weirdest green/grey almost like it's broken. Once I press power again and then again it goes away and everything is normal.. it even happened today when I got home. Tab was OFF and on charger. Before powering on the screen was the same thing. I powered on like normal everything fine, I feel like this is some bug or OS error???This has been this first samsung tab I have not had battery issues with or problems. I hope they aren't starting now. UPDATE: along with the weird colors there is couple lines and what looks like glitter it's really weird. I would think it's broken etc but once you turn off and on screen everything is perfectly fine?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The final verdict was that I had to send it in to Samsung for repair. At first they said they couldn't find any defect. Once I insisted I believe they had to replace a part with the screen or the screen all together . Once they officially did one and sent it back I have not had one issue with my screen again. That being said I have no idea what caused it what it was but it was definitely an issue that needed repair.
Are you able to get a picture or video of this happening?
Looks like there's two methods: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00042949/
No it won't. It's some weird hardware defect. I am still under warranty though. It only happens like I said when it wakes from sleep and right after I take it off from charger, even when still off. It's also now getting worse. Instead of getting screen ,hitting power twice and it would go back to normal I have to keep going from sleep to on to sleep then finally tablet screen comes back normal.. very very strange issue
Have you tested this tablet in safe mode? If you need steps to put this tab in safe mode, please provide the full model number of your device?
Just to make sure, did you test the device a bit before reinstalling any information? If you did, then sadly service repairs would be the next recommended step. You can message us here for details: http://bit.ly/2igAXKH
Yeah same issues . Coming out of sleep, when off and charging, even sometimes initially turning on I get this weird colored line screen and have to constantly hit power on off to get my lock screen, then tab works fine until it goes back to sleep or off.. very strange
