Sounds like a bad device. Have you contacted the seller?
If it is a under depleted battery
power up the device with out battery then insert after RED LED comes on and charge for 15 min and repeat 6 times unless it turns on.

I had this problem. I just left it on the charger for a day with the crossed out battery showing, pulled the battery, put it back in. Let it charge for a night did the same thing. Kept doing that a few times. Eventually one time I put the battery back in and it started up automatically after a few seconds, and it had an error 507. I just had to connect it to the desktop software and update it. It's been working now.
