I had this problem with my 8 year olds 7" RCA tablet. It's the Android 4.4 system. I did the following and it worked perfectly. Hold the on-off button down and the volume button UP at the same time. (might take one or two attempts). Hold them both in this position until you get a menu on the screen. When the menu appears release both buttons and with the VOLUME button scroll down to the line that says re-set to factory settings. Press and hold the ON-OFF button until the screen re-appears and let it reset itself. (this can take a minute or two. Your tablet should return to its original setting and come on. You only lose your pictures and downloaded games but you can always reload them, no big deal. It has worked perfect since I did this. Good Luck. TM

this worked perfectly! as a matter of fact, we only had to push the power and volume buttons a couple of times and it worked! Thank you so much--it would have been a long day without my daughter's tablet!

The same thing happened to me except way worse...I think. My tablet a couple of days ago shut off and wouldn't turn back on. Then the next day it wouldn't turn off. Then it wouldn't work if it wasn't plugged in. And now it won't even work at all. Like, it won't even turn on even for a second.

I followed the steps above but instead of resetting to factory settings, I selected the reboot option. My son's tablet came back on normally after that. :)

I did the same thing the person above did. I pressed the power button and the + button at the same time and it will appear a thing as soon as you do that. Just press the 1st opption and it should work! :D It worked for me! Hope it works for you!

I bought a USB charger 1.5 cm at Walmart for $8. I connected the tablet to my laptop that was turned on an connected to power. I let it charge for 1 hr. I then held down power and volume for 10-20 seconds. I kept doing this until it came on. I left it charging for 4-5 hours. It will only take a charge via the laptop.

Get 1.5cm USB cable that connects to computer. The tablet will not take a charge directly using the charger that came with it. Connect the tablet to the computer using the USB. Make sure the computer is turned on. Push the power and volume button down at the same time for 10-20 seconds. Do this once or twice. Let it charge. If it does not turn on wait a few minutes and try holding down power and volume button again.
