    I did a hard reset on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3113 using External Keys as per below steps

    In Recovery Mode select wipe data / factory reset
    press Power key to confirm
    select Yes — delete all user data, press power key to confirm
    select Reboot system now to finish hard reset

    the problem is that when I reboot it keeps coming back to recovery mode rather than starting the system
    I want to know why,ever since I did the hard reset i can’t boot into system anymore

      Did you root your device? I found some devices before perform a hard reset the firmware corrupted and after a hard reset the device can not booting normally. For this case, try to flash the firmware using original firmware / stock firmware. Like my device Galaxy prime, when I restart, It’s not booting to system but entering to TWRP Recovery first and then I select reboot to system in the TWRP Recovery to enter system.

    same thing with my Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0. I root my device and I want to install the lineageOS
    and I install twrp recovery after rooted device but when I power off
    and restart the device its enter in twrp. its again and again enter in twrp recovery can’t did the system reboot. When I click on system reboot its only shows the logo samsung galaxy tab 2 and again enter in twrp. please tell me a solution to remove twrp recovery.

      I think the twrp recovery is not compatible with your device, or you have use wrong root file. To solve this, you must flash the stock ROM and root again with the true root file
