Try removing the battery, holding downn the power button for ten seconds to use up the flea power. Then, on mains power only, try the power and volume down approach to the reset again. It's also worth trying power and volume up buttons.

Sounds to me like nothing less than a factory reset will fix this one. Try sucking your personal data out of there via USB to your PC or laptop. Go for the folder DCIM for photos and Music then take as many folders as you can and with some luck, Contacts will be one of them and you can convert them into VCards later.

that's the problem I know that a fac reset will fix it but I can't do it I can't get to the recovery mode
nothing important on it anyway I just use it for media (yt Netflix..)

Holding down the Volume Down button when powering up the device should present the menu that includes Factory Reset. It's way down the list which is why you have to use Volume Down seven times to get to it and it doesn't get hit by accident.
