It can be a number of causes so we will need to eliminate this.
First, can you power it off.
Then Press and hold both Volume Up + Home+power on.
Tell me if this gets you to the recovery menu please

it is powered off will not switch on,no signs of life at all

Thanks Joyce, confirms the problem
It is the internal mainboard that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the memory that shorts out, and causes the device to stall.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the note to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
