With the button sunk down you don't have the ability to still use it, right? You might need to remove the case (not sure how it's done on this device) and see what is wrong with the button hardware.

I'm not familiar with that tablet either. Might be able to take the case off (as suggested).

Can you pop it out with a pin or something?

My cousin has a small Android tablet (don't remember the name or brand) and he had a similar problem.

I yanked the power button up with a small knife, placed a piece of rubber under and then the power button back in place.
His tablet has had no problems since then.

If you try this though, be very careful!
A knife is a dangerous tool and could hurt you or anybody around you at that moment.
