Welcome to the forums.

Where did you purchase the device?

Try charging it for about 3-4 hours, remove and reinsert the battery.

There's really no info given to really determine what the issue could be. If you connect it to you PC, does your PC detect the device? If so, install Desktop Manager on your PC and see if Desktop Manager detects the device.
