Merry Christmas, I got you a new toy.  A Samsung
Galaxy Tab.  Cool.  Let’s’ check out Pandora.  Oopps.  Hard crash.  Can’t turn it on or anything.  Had plenty of battery.  No choice but to reset.

Soft reset:
Hold down the Power, Volume Up and Home buttons at the same time.

Release them when you see the startup screen.

Use the Volume Up and Volume Down to choose an option.  There were four of which I remember “system reboot” and “factory reset”.

Push the Home button to confirm.
