Power Up in Safe Mode - Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 (7.0)

  1. Ensure the device is powered off.
  2. Press and hold the Power button (located on the right edge) until the Samsung logo appears, then release.
  3. When the Samsung logo screen appears, press and hold the Volume down button.
  4. Continue to hold the Volume Down button until 'Safe mode' appears in the lower-left corner of the screen.
    Note This may take up to 30 seconds.
