Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

When you held down Home and Power button, did it show Apple logo and restarted ? If not, hold down both buttons until it shows Apple logo and then try to activate it again.

If that didn't work, then you have to activate it from your computer. Are you using an Apple Mac or Windows PC computer ?
