You could try directly charging the battery to get it over say 3.7-3.8 vdc or so and see if that allows it to start up.  It may be discharged below the point at which the protective circuitry cuts the connection allowing charging.  Be very careful if you choose to mess around doing so, the battery could be damaged if it got that low.

Not sure if the components are the same, guessing they might be as both are Z8300 based, but a number of users have had to buy a chip programmer and directly reprogram the BIOS on their Hi12, so perhaps a similar issue is possible on the Hi8 Pro?  Maybe worth having a look at the Hi12 forum and searching for "programmer" or "BIOS", maybe both.  Or it could be anything...  Nothing unusual happened prior to your issue?  No flashing the wrong BIOS or ROM?
Have you tried holding the Power button for 10-15 seconds, then three quick 1/2 second pause/presses...  Possibly followed by another 5 second press if needed to get it to start up?
