My P1000 tablet needs rebooting but will not respond to any input commands. If I remove the battery I believe this will force the tablet to reboot.

How do I get to the battery?

I don't think the Galaxy Tabs are really designed for the battery to be removed. Not without a fair amount of work, anyway. Here's a teardown for the 7" Tab, for example. – eldarerathis Jan 1 '12 at 20:18
This isn't an Android question, it is a hardware question. You need to talk to the manufacturer or the retailer. – Logos Mar 5 '12 at 3:43
Does the tablet not have a way to hard reset the device? For example, on my xoom, It's a combination of VOL UP + Power button that will restart the tablet. – Bryan Denny Mar 5 '12 at 15:01
@Logos It's specific to an Android device, which makes it an Android question. – Matthew Read Mar 5 '12 at 18:16
Last time I looked at the question, the bits about not responding to input commands weren't very clear. Looks like Eldareathis cleaned it up. – Logos Mar 6 '12 at 3:03

Like it was pointed out, the Galaxy Tab wasn't designed in a way for it's battery to be easily removed. Here's a video on removing the case and exploring what's inside. Hope this helps.
