Add battery reset button - SM-P610

I have a Samsung Galaxy P610 Tab S6 Lite and when I reboot it (via Android option or reset keys - Power + Volume Down) it does not power back up.

It can take hours to days where whatever is the issue discharges or clears and the device will power back up. The screen is black when it is malfunctioning and with the USB power connected or not the device will not respond. A reset via Power + Volume Down will not bring the device back up until a discharge or clear (or whatever is causing this issue) occurs internally. Eventually if I connect USB power and when pressing the Power button I see the battery status on the screen (as it should do when the device is powered down). At this point I know the device will power back up.

This is a known problem on the Internet for this device. (On guy on the Internet was going to turn his device into an expensive cutting board and then his device suddenly starting powering up - similar to what I have described.) Some have blamed it on a firmware crash. I am current on firmware.

I have had both Samsung and Asurion look at the device and they have determined nothing is wrong.

The best solution I have come up with is to install a reset button for the battery ground connection that would allow me to "disconnect" the battery in order to return the device to functionality.

Does anyone know of someone who would be willing to consider adding a reset button like this that would allow me to disconnect the battery when needed?

Update: After updating the boot loader on my SM-P610 - Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to version P610XXU2EVG7/P610OXM2EVG7 (the current firmware as of September 2022) my problem with reboots making the device unresponsive for an indefinite time seems to be resolved. My previous boot loader - December 2021 seems to have been causing the issue.

It would have been appreciated if Samsung had provided notification of the issue somewhere instead of my having to expend so much time seeking a resolution. I am posting this resolution (it hasn't "choked" yet) so others with similar issues might find this solution.

Hi David,

The problem with your proposed solution is that the battery is connected to the motherboard with a flex ribbon cable that carries several signal and power wires. Those flex cables are exceptionally difficult to work with and it would be almost impossible to modify to insert a switch into the power wire.

If it were me personally I'd strongly consider just opening it up (the back just pries off, no adhesive) and unplugging the battery's flex cable when necessary, but I understand you want a little more push button style approach.

Next best thing I can come up with would be to just cut a hole in the back over the battery connector so you can access it without removing the cover. You could block off the hole with tape when you're not using it, or jerry-rig some kind of door you can open when needed. I snagged a photo off the French site that shows a better picture of the battery connector than the one here on the iFixit site.

Jerry, thanks for the reply.

I'm not clear about your recommendation "the back just pries off, no adhesive".

The iFixIt repair document is for repairing after removing the touchpad.

Do you know of a web site that would explain back or back cover removal more clearly?

Plastic can break rather easily and I'd like to prevent that.
