ekin, 05 Sep 2015I have also same problem i used this tab s 8.4 but always auto restart its usually happen if ... moreI was having the same problem. I would get white horizontal flashing lines across the screen, the Tab S would freeze, and then it would reboot... sometimes. I sent it in to the warranty company. The first time it was returned they did absolutely nothing to it. The second time I re emphasized the issue with the loose wire on the battery and it needing resoldering. I even sent them web pages explaining this known issue. The work order accompanying my Tab S indicated they listened to me the second time. That's exactly what they did to fix it, and it's been running smoothly ever since. If your tab is still under warranty I suggest you send it in with specific instructions to fix and resolder the wires that are loose, or if you're handy enough I've read some people have done it themselves. Good luck
Just got my Tab S back from having it serviced. About a month after I got it the screen started flashing vertical lines and it would shut down automatically. I sent it in to have it repaired twice because the first time they did absolutely nothing despite my telling them about the history of the lose battery wires . The second time I again told them it was a resoldering issue with the battery. The work order reflected this and it works like a charm now.

It works beautifully and the Tab S recognizes it. One end of the dongle with an HDMI, so it just attaches to the back of your TV. You find the video from your tab that you want to play, use the stock video player, and at the top you'll get the option to stream it from your device or just stream it over to ezcast. It's as simple as that. I also have a Chromecast dongle and I can do the same thing with that, but the Chromecast is much more picky and finicky
Zach, 03 Sep 2016I got the upgrade to Marshmallow!They finally pushed it today for my T700. No September security patch tough.
please I have Samsung tab 8.4 SM T705 ,I put it on but the phone can't reboot. how can I do?
Many problems including flashlight battery draining and screen flickering, I have sent this to warranty centre but no correction of any problem they just update the software
I have bought and used hand phone since 1990s.
One of the inconveniences is the small keyboard and screen size, because my fingers are rather big and therefore makes typing error so often.
However, since I bought Samsung Galaxy Tab S 2 days ago and install "Jback" keyboard this afternoon, I feel so happy and satisfied using this tablet.
The width of this tablet is perfect. I can grab and hold it by one hand.
Quality versus Price is very excellent as compared to other tablets or smart phones having more expensive price or twice of its price. This Samsung Galaxy Tab S is "Highly Recommended".
Andy, 04 Jun 2016Can anyone give me advice on connecting this device to a tv. I bought a cheap cable to connect... moreyeah but you you need the mhl 2.0 adapter from Samsung. unless you have a smart tv with screen mirroring then you can connect wirelessly.

Can anyone give me advice on connecting this device to a tv. I bought a cheap cable to connect it via hdmi and it didn't work. Is it worth investing in a more expensive one? Can it be connected to a tv?

Good thing i didnt update to Lollipop either and did my homework long before i was considering it. (Battery drain)
I have upgraded mine to Lollipop and I am not facing any drain issue. Try to check the apps that you have downloaded maybe it is active even the tablet is on idle. build number: LRX22G.T700XXU1BOL1
