Thank you for posting your question
At this point you will have to do a hard reset
Please follow these steps to reset the device

Press and hold the power button and the down volume button for 10-20 seconds. If it doesn't start after this try to hold the power button for 4-6 seconds and let go. You may have to repeat this process.
