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. Jan 1, 2012 at 20:18
  • This isn't an Android question, it is a hardware question. You need to talk to the manufacturer or the retailer.

  • 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.

  • @Logos It's specific to an Android device, which makes it an Android question. Mar 5, 2012 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.

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.
