no the tablet is not turning on

Thanks Carol
Can you remove the charger then hold the power button down for 60 seconds then release.
Once done, connect the charger and then hold the Volume UP and Power button for 10 seconds then release.
Then tell me if it now starts and chargers please.

I have done what you suggested and the screen is still showing no sign of charging.

Ok, leave it connected to the charger for 10 minutes and then repeat the procedure as we have just cleared residue power so this can get it working now.
Let me know the results please

Tried previous advice still nothing showing

Thanks Carol
It is the internal memory that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to hard restart it.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the tablet to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, 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
