Emily Denton, I'd suggest that you plug the charger in, then hold volume up and down buttons down at same time for about 10 seconds and release after. Your boot up screen should come on and your battery should be low. Turn your device off and let it charge normally. Hope this helps, good luck.

I opened the tablet up, disconnected the battery wire (just used a small blunt object underneath and popped it up), took the battery out and waited a minute. Put the battery back in, connected the wire back on, put the backing back on the tablet and plugged it in. It worked. There are tutorials on youtube on how to replace the battery. Although I was not replacing the battery, simply just re setting it, that's how I got mine to start charging again. Good luck.
