Hold the power button down for a very long time. Like 2 minutes. For some reason (after the last update) like once a month my ZMAX just shuts off. Holding the power button down for a really long time seems to get it to boot. If that doesn't work... plug the power in and hold the power down for a minute or two.

I'm sorry, maybe someone else here has a suggestion?

Try plugging it into the USB port on a computer to see see if it charges, powers up, is recognized by the PC, etc?

Mine will do this about every other week. If I hold down power and volume down until it does a brief vibration and let go it will power back on. Hope that helps.

Put it in the fridge. I have resurrected my zombie tablet that way loads of times.

I just had the same issue with my ZTE BladeX X Max Z983, it would not power on at all. I tried different chargers and USB type C cables with no luck. Even looked in the port to see if there was any debris. Plugged the device into 3 different computers each with another O.S. (Windows 7 Ult, OSX and a Linux distro with no luck. No device would recognize my phone.

The Fix, I held my power button down for a very long time until my phone vibrated... Boot splash came up and the device was working fine. I don't know why it happened. I cant replicate the issue, I just know that there was no display whilst charging the device and the home button wouldn't illuminate either.
