    Welcome to the forum. Glad you found us.

    I would try plugging it into your PC for several hours. For some reason that has awakened some otherwise sleeping tablets. It would be a good sign if your PC at least recognized it was plugged in even if it appears nothing is happening. Then I would try holding the power button for about 20 seconds to see what if anything happens.

    If that gets no response at all after all that it may be a power circuit or power button (hardware), problem.

    In the case the charge is not the issue here, try this.

    Press reset hole button using a paperclip/toothpick or anything that fits, then hold down volume + button until 'Cruz' appears on display. That will reset the tablet.

    or just press in on it one time for 1 second to attempt a hard reboot.
