Default [q] polaroid tablet cannot boot to homescreen

I have a polaroid tablet with model polaroid MID1047.
Its been barely 3 months since I purchased it in France but now am in Ghana. I was using the polaroid tablet and the screen went off.
I tried to put it on and it goes through the process of booting but it just cant go to the home screen where I can touch icons and use the device.
in order words, it hangs and never boots to home screen and when it even boots to the home screen it is not useable, and the tablet remains non-responsive.


THE SPECIFICATIONS ARE BELOW FOR THE MODEL OF POLAROID TABLET I HAVE:

10.1" Tablet
Touch panel 10.1"
Multi points capacitive
Android 4.1
CPU:ATM7029 QUADCORE 1.2Ghz
Resolution: 1024 x 600
Storage: 16GB Nand flash
RAM: 1 GB DDR III
Micro Card Reader Max 32GB
Micro USB Port + OTG
Dual Digital Camera 2MP/0.3MP
WIFI 802.11b/g/n
Bluetooth
HDMI
Battery Li-ion 5000mAh

I have tried several approaches such as
1. discharging the tablet completely, charge and trying to power on.. this approach did not work.
2. I entered rom(by holding the volume up, inserting the usb cable and pressing the power button 3 times) and selected factory reset. it didnt work
3. i entered rom again and tried wipe cache and it didnt work also.

I went to polaroid support and they said the device is not on their support list and possibly not from them.

am so much confused now and any help or suggestions are very much welcome. Thanks in advance
