    So is it able to turn on at all? Or does it not do anything when you press the button?

    you mean "dead"

    Just to add to pomis question

    Please detach the power adaptor and battery
    Also remove any external USB devices
    Hold the ON switch in for 30 secs (dispersing all internal power)
    Put the power adaptor in ONLY (confirming that the power source is Ok too)
    Try turning on

    If it works
    Turn off, and put the battery back in
    Turn on
