    Welcome to Android Central! How long have you had it? Did you get it brand new, or was it used? Is it rooted? Has there been any recent trauma--did you drop it or anything? Any water damage?

    Try booting into the Recovery Mode and see if you can Wipe Cache Partition: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    If it's brand new, then I suggest you return it for an exchange or refund. Don't waste too much time trying to fix it, because if you wait too long, you may lose the opportunity to return it.

    You don't need tools for professional rebooting. Just follow the steps in the link if you want to try booting into Recovery.

    If clearing cache doesn't work, try a factory data reset as well before returning.

    Can you post a screenshot or a picture of what it is doing? I'm having a tough time figuring out exactly what the problem is.

    Perhaps if you took the battery out for a couple of minutes and then reinserted it and tried to turn it on?
