Default gtab wont power on,not even apx mode

so my sister gave me a free g-tab and said if i can fix it i can have it( i guess it was her old bf's or something).anyway it wont turn on and will not respond to anything, although the charging light does turn on when the charger is plugged in/just recently turned green so fully charged.i have tried pressing the reset button and then i tried pressing the power and +\- together and nothing happens i also unplugged the battery for a few min and plugged it back in.i thought it was a dead battery but i tested the battery with a multi-meter and it holds a charge and charges.usually i can figure things out with electronics but this 1 has stumped me.so my sister gave me a free g-tab and said if i can fix it i can have it( i guess it was her old bf's or something).anyway it wont turn on and will not respond to anything, although the charging light does turn on when the charger is plugged in.i have tried pressing the reset button and pressing the power and +\- together and nothing happensi also unplugged the battery for a few min and plugged it back in.i thought it was a dead battery but i tested the battery with a multi-meter and it holds a charge and charges.usually i can figure things out with electronics but this 1 has stumped me.also im pretty sure its a stock rom,plus even if it wasnt i dont think it would not respond at all.i could be mistaken tho.i have lots of experience with roms for cellphones so this may be a bit different.im on a stock rom and everything else everyone is saying to do witch is pretty much the same thing,hasnt worked.im gana be bummed if i cant get this thing to work.

Hi Dippie and welcome to Android Forums!

You can't even get into Recovery with Vol+ and Power?
