Default Tablet not powering on? Brick?

The device responds to any button presses with the image that says 0% battery. When plugged in long enough it stays on "Needs more power to turn on." It has power, it can continuously respond to button presses with that bright image for hours on end. Attempting to boot into recovery/download mode responds with the same screen no matter how long I press it. Holding the power button for any period of time while unplugged results in it showing the battery 0% and then going to blank screen a few times then staying on a blank screen while immediately responding to any other button presses with 0% battery. Holding it while plugged in results in an infinite flashing 0% battery logo that flashes on for a split second every few seconds. Help?
