To correct this issue, please follow the steps below.
1. Press and hold down the power button whilst at the same time touching the screen (you may have to wait up to 30 seconds as it clears the system).
2. You will then notice the battery indicator pops up.
3. The Tablet will then reboot. Everything goes back to normal.
4. If that fails to work, connect the power cable and repeat the above steps.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Make sure you are using the AC adapter as the Tab cannot charge solely from a USB cable connected to a computer or similar. If it is still not charging, your device's battery or connector has probably failed and will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, Alistair

You can damage the battery but it is very rare to actually do that. What you need to do is plug it in to the wall charger and leave it alone over night. At that point it should be just fine. it will actually start to show some signs of life after a few hours but don't be tempted to do anything wih it. it will first show a charge light or something after maybe 40 minutes if it is a faster charger.
If it shows no life the next day then you can try charging again but at this point you may hae a problem that requires either a battery replacement or warrenty. The battery has a microcontroller on it and when the battey gets real low they do not behave that well and typically you get the stone dead brick behaviour. And most people do not let it charge long enough to get it working. It is possible that there are other problems but those are usually moore serious and require replacement of the unit. The battery can be replaced but requires the etire case to be disassembled.
So charge it then check your warrenty and it may need serious repairs or to be replaced. If it is out of warrenty then you need to be careful on the cost verses replaceemn
