Freelander PD20 won't turn on.

A few months ago I bought a Freelander PD20, and I think it's a great tablet, especially at the price (when I can prise it away from the other half!) However, this morning it refused to play ball. Charged it overnight as usuall, but when it was turned on, the 'Power off, your tablet will shut down" screen appeared. Neither 'Cancel' or 'OK' makes any difference, it shuts back down after a few seconds. The only control which has any effect is the volume control. The reset button apparently does nothing. I've tried removing the 32GB memory card, but that makes no difference.

Can anyone shed any light on this problem, and is it 'Goodnight Sooty' for the tablet?

Thanks for reading.
