    Try to see if it'll go into a hard reset:
    1. Make sure that the tablet is actually powered off.
    2. Remove your SD card, if there is one in the device.
    3. Press the "Power" and the "Volume Up" buttons, together, until you see the start-up logo on the screen.
    4. Once you can see the logo, release the buttons and allow the device to enter the "System Recovery Mode".
    5. Next use "Volume Down" button to get to the "wipe data/factory reset" option When in recovery mode the "Volume Up" and "Volume Down" buttons are how to can navigate and highlight what option you need.
    6. Once you have selected the "wipe data/factory reset", press the "Power" button to select that option.
    7. On the following screen, repeatedly press the "Volume Down" button until the "Yes - delete all user data" option is what is selected.
    8. Then press the "Power" button to hard reset the tablet.
    9. If you took your SD card out in step 2, when the device is up and running again, reinsert the SD card.
    Note that you will lose any personal data stored on the tablet, but not anything stored in the cloud.

    Supposedly you should be able to press and hold the power button for a few seconds at that point to continue on to Android.
