Samsung Tablet Failing To Start

Last Modified: 2015-09-04
I'm trying to help the granddaughter of a coworker who is crying because her tablet won't start and her mother can't afford a new one. I know very little about tablets. She's obviously dropped it as there is a major network of cracks over about 1/3 of the left side. But she claims it had been working fine until last night. When I plug it into my UPS and press what I believe to be the On button (top left) a battery icon appears, repeatedly loads 5 stages of gold colored charges and then eventually either goes Off or to a sleep state. When I press the On button the battery icon appears again, continuing to seem to be loading a charge. I will let it remain for an hour or so. Appreciate any help to stop her tears. :)
