Welcome to the forum
With the volume key broken your options are quite limited. If it was connecting to WiFi, several incorrect attempts to log into the tablet would normally prompt for the Google username and password. If that isn't happening I would probably seriously consider it as scrap./

Hi John, welcome to the forum. Nice of you to become a member of Android Tablets. They probably won't give you much for it, but it does look like the scrapyard is where it's headed. (If you could replace the broken volume keys, you could try doing a factory reset.)

Leave the battery disconnected for at least a minute, it may automatically reset when you turn it on again. If not, and the volume keys are working again, see if there are reset instructions for your tablet here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/android-tablet-q/62022-how-do-i-factory-reset-my-tablet.html. If not, try some of the methods for other tablets, You won't hurt anything and one might work. Good luck!
