I hope this story doesn't sound too incredible but I have some good news:
When my tablet "died", I turned it off with not much battery left, Windows menu-> Power -> Shutdown, not just pressing the power button.
Next day, I couldn't turn it on, so I charged it for the majority of following 4 days, trying to power it on almost every half hour.
After 4 days, LED light stopped blinking, I gave up as I thought that tablet completely died.
During next 3 days I was randomly trying to charge it for short periods of time just to see if LED will start blinking again, it didn't.
I was also trying to power it on in random intervals using known 3 short + 1 long press method.
Today I was literally rubbing the screen to clean it and accidentally pressed power button (apparently long enough), and it somehow got kickstarted.
Battery was at 9% apparently despite long periods of charging during past 7 days. My conclusion is that something with power circuitry is not doing its job properly and tablet wouldn't reliably charge. Consequently, it wouldn't power on due to lack of charge. Now it's happily charging and works just as before.
I don't want to give anyone false hope, I guess I was super lucky (Easter miracle?), but maybe you shouldn't give up on your unit and keep trying to revive it if you don't plan to return it for a refund.
