Unplug the Battery, hold the Power button for 10 seconds to discharge any capacitors, Plug the battery back in, Charge the tablet until the battery reaches 100% (Factory Charger preferred), Turn it on. If this doesn't work it could be a bad battery, bad charger or bad USB connector.7 Jan 2014
If the battery isn't too far gone, here's how to revive it: Plug the device into the Kindle A/C adapter (not your computer) and let it charge for a few hours. Be sure the charging light is lit -- sometimes a drained Kindle will stop charging a few seconds after you plug it in. Unplug and replug until the light stays on steadily, then leave it alone. Most of the time you'll come back to a restored Kindle. If not, go on to step 2. If you still see the same Critical Battery screen after charging, unplug the USB cord, then hold the power slide to the right for at least 20 seconds. Release the power slide, then immediately press and hold the Home key for another 30 - 45 seconds. Once the Kindle's screen begins to flash, release the Home key. The eReader will boot to recovery mode. To continue, press and hold the R key until the screen flashes again. After the device is finished rebooting, you may see the Critical Battery screen once more. If so, plug in the USB cord and wait for the Kindle to return to the Home screen. - See more at: http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/kindle-critical-battery-error#sthash.Rtxwp4El.dpuf
If battery is depleted, then no, it will not turn on.
If battery charger is dead, phone won't charge or turn on.
If battery charger cable is broken, tablet won't charge or turn on.
You need to ensure you have a good working charger, and a good cable. Only a known good charger and a known good cable can charge the unit. Borrow or invest in a new charger and cable (they're cheap on eBay).
Only once you know the charger and cable are good can you determine that they are not the problem.
Depending on how old the unit is, it's possible the battery can no longer hold a charge and needs to be replaced. You won't know that though until you first determine the charger and cable you're using are working properly and providing a good charge.
If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.
General charging recommendations.
If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.
Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.
If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.
One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.
You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.
Hello Sir !!
I am afraid to tell that your battery might be got damaged by over charging.Electronic devices must be unplugged when the icon comes "Battery is Full" or like wise.Over charging damages the efficiency and produces extra heat that reduces the strength of charged battery.I suggest you to unplug the tab as soon as it got charged.It might increase your battery timings.

Can you check the power cable is connected correctly and that the battery has sufficient power - laptops running on their batteries just switch off when the batteries are coming to the end of their useful life. E.g the batteries last bit of charge is not sufficient to warn the user that the laptop is shutting/needs to shut down.
Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.
