Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
When smoke first appeared from the unit, you should have done anything other than turn it back on. Smoke us never a good sign from electronics and any time you see it from a computing device your first response should always be to unplug the device and seek professional repair. Could be a simple repair if addressed right away while each later attempt simply compounds issues making repair more difficult
I will suggest seeking a professional repair facility here, you may still be looking at a simple repair (no way to tell here) but I will highly suggest you do not attempt to power it on again
Afterthought, had this tablet been disassembled prior to the overheating/smoke event?
