    Before you panic try to rule out a possible battery issue.
    1)Take it out and hold the power for 10-20 seconds then put it in and try to turn on.
    2)Charge it for a couple of hours to allow it to fully charge.
    3)Test unit with another battery.

    Could easily be the battery like mentioned above. Have you tried it on charge or a different battery?
