    Throw that device out the window and get a new tablet. It's 10 years old, the battery is beyond dead and the hardware is a dinosaur.

    Im guessing, the highest probability is it the rechargeable battery. Their shrlf life is 3 to 5 years give or take. If its a removable battery you can use a multimeter to check if it is holding charge but 10yr old rechargeable battery is way, way past its life expectancy.

    But why does when i charge it the red light shows but wont turn on it blink off and on is it just being dead

    My guess is its likely to hold enough of a charge to blink the indicator but not enough to be able to boot the tablet. On my Galaxy Note 4 n910p the red blinking notification begines at 15%.
    I have to conker with my friend Mr Dannydet. Youd be much better of buying another tablet. A 10 yr old tablet would be running Android 2.2 Froyo or simply called API 8. My old Galaxy Note 4 released in 2014 is now on Marshmallow 6.0.1 API 23.
