Krista, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to reboot it, time it. Set the device down, and be patient, as rebooting takes a couple of minutes.

Post back.

You can still use the same method, as long as it is charged. If it still wont turn on you may need to send it to the service center to replace the battery.

It worked for me too. I was worried sick until I read about how to reboot. It fell off my bed onto a rug last night, so I was convinced I had broken it until just now. Whew!
