    Nothing happens with the usb, if you plug the mains in the light comes on but it gets hot at the back

    Hot can mean either warm or to Hot to touch. if warm then try to boot tablet, if Hot to touch nothing can be done.

    with the tablet plugged in boot the tablet. you need to get info on the tablet, usually the build.prop has some info, but you need to boot the tablet to get to it.

    ok don't mess with it then, as far as battery can't even guess as there are two many different sizes for a 7 inch. is there any writing on the tablet? upload a picture, google 7'' tablets images on google to try and match what you have.
