Solved for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (GT-P5110) stuck in boot loop AND unable to enter ASR recovery mode.
1) Boots to white Samsung Tab 2 screen, and then through to coloured animated Samsung logo where it then gets stuck and commences booting again. It will continue this cycle continuously. The tablet can not be forced off (holding power button down) unless the charger is connected. Battery was charged to 100% the entire time.
2) I could not enter the ASR (Android System Recovery) mode to try the other suggested options of clearing the cache or wiping the tablet back to factory settings . This is usually done by holding the power button and volume down button (Vol down is the one closest to the power button) simultaneously and releasing the power button when the white Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 logo comes up. The tablet is supposed to boot into the recovery menu but for me it just continued to the animated Samsung logo and then cycled again like before. It made no difference if it was charging or on battery. Power + volume up also didn't work.
I read lots about reloading firmware using ODIN and PIT and .tar files which were quite foreign to me.
**SOLUTION** I opened the case and disconnected the power connector to the battery for about 3 minutes. I tried to start the tablet but was still stuck in the boot loop cycle. However, this time, I could access the ASR (see point 2 above) successfully. NOTE the tablet MUST be running on battery only- charger disconnected
I tried clearing the cache but no change. I then started the ASR again and selected Wipe Data/Factory reset. 2 minutes later it was wiped, and started normally.
This boot loop problem is very common it seems. Lots of people asking how to fix and I spent hours looking for a solution, most involving accessing the ASR recovery which I could not do or rooting/reloading firmware which I was reluctant to attempt.
I have lost all my files in the process but I have back-ups so fortunately no loss for me.
You may like to leave the battery disconnected for a longer time to allow full discharge of the electronics. 3 minutes worked for me but some suggest a few hours.
I have the Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet and I found it stuck on the Samsung logo. I can't boot to recovery because it just cycles back to the logo. I can boot to odin mode but even with odin I can't get connected. It says Downloading and my computer sees the USB connection but I am completely unable to get it to recover or even transfer files. It's stock/not rooted so I don't know how it suddenly bricked itself. It was doing fine running the same clock app that's been on it for 2 years now. I don't believe Samsung has pushed any updates recently.
Anyone have an idea or should I toss it?

SUCCESS, NO LONGER STICKS AT BOOTUP! My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Version 2014 was rooted. It had been operating just fine for about 2 years until June 2017. Then it would boot to the T-Mobile screen and stick there. I entered the reset mode (simultaneously hold down Power button and Volume button). I tried Factory Reset many times but to no avail. I began looking for a new tablet, but then tried one more thing. Using Samsung Kies 3 on my PC, I upgraded my tablet Operating System from Android Version 4.4.2 to 5.1.1. SInce then it is working better than ever.
Re: SUCCESS, NO LONGER STICKS AT BOOTUP! I have been using Lollipop 5.1.1 for about a week. It is absoulutely junk.! I will be rolling back to Kit Kat 4.4.2. Things I noted: I pair English and Spanish versions of books I study. In KitKat 4.4.2 I could leave that pair open, go to a different app and return to the open pair. In Lollipop, you leave/return closes half of the pair. In KItKat 4.4.2 when I wanted to "CREATE" a Spanish/English pair in 2 windows, I could name the pair. Can't name pairs in Lollipop. - worthless. There are 5 pairs I use regularly and can't identify which is which in Lollipop.
In KitKat I saved a folder of online newspapers to read. Can't assemble them smoothly in to a Lollipop folder. SEARCH FUNCTION: Could go directly to Google Search in KitKat . The search window in Lollipop is the same as the URL window - very confusing. A THUMBS DOWN! for Lollipop!
