This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the Tab and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the Tab.
Let me know the results please
Thank you

I have pressed the on/off button to reboot and it has now come to life! It looks OK now. Thank you.

your most welcome!
It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
