I have a Galaxy Tab S5e. Recently the battery was acting weird. It appeared to be dead, so I plugged it in and it immediately jumped to 95% full... So I turned it on and it seemed to be working normally. Slowly charged from 95 to 100%. Then when I unplugged it, it immediately shut off. So I plugged it in, jumped to 95% charged. Same thing. So I decided to just do a factory reset from the settings. It does that and then when it boots up it goes into "Android Recovery" screen with various options. Reboot system now. Reboot to bootloader. Apply update from ADB. Etc.
I've tried clicking wipe cache partition, and wipe data/factory reset. Both say they are successful and complete although it just puts me right back to the same screen.
When I hold the power button and volume down button it reboots the tablet although when it normally would boot into Android it very quickly flashes an image of the Android logo and says "No command". Now I am stuck in this Android recovery screen and I cannot boot up the tablet. It appears as though something is wrong with the operating system, although I do not know if this is related to the battery issues I was having. The tablet still shuts off if I unplug it even in this menu.
At the bottom of this screen there is some white text as follows:
#Reboot Recovery Cause is [init: 1]#
#Reason is [update_in_progress]#
Supported API: 3
#MANUAL MODE v1.0.0#
No Command specified.
Any help would be appreciated. Of course my 1 year warranty expired on April 30th.
Thank you for the reply. I have downloaded Odin and the correct firmware. Unfortunately I am unable to boot the device into Download Mode. When I plug it into my PC it is stuck in a short boot loop. Flashes the "Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e - Powered by Knox - Powered by Android" splash screen and then just goes black and does it again. When I hold the volume up and down keys, then plug in the cable it flashes a blue/teal screen for a split second, and then goes black; this continues in a loop. I am not able to successfully get it into the Download Mode.
I also am unable to get to the "Android Recovery" screen if it is plugged into the PC; only when i am using a wall plug.
Any additional tips?
I have tried this. It appears as though it attempts to boot into Download Mode, as I do see a very very quick flash of blue/teal (that I believe is the Download Mode color) but it never starts, the tablet just shuts off and flashes the color again, repeats over and over. Never successfully get to Download Mode.
