My Emerson em743, which is a tablet with a 7" screen, will not power on nor will it charge.

Can I save this device or do I just trash it?

@tammyb Saving a device is always an option. Lets start by checking the charging port. look inside the port for dust and or dirt . clean it with either a toothpick or something plastic , don't use a metal pic this will damage the port. Try using another method of charging use a different cord or connect to a computer instead of the charger. Still no Joy? lets move to inspecting the port itself. Is it loose can you move the port ? It may have broken free from the motherboard. If this has happened you will need to open the tablet and re-solder the connection. Hope this helps
