    Have you plugged in to AC power? Is it possible the battery was almost depleted when this issue came up?

    Hold the power button for 10 seconds... OR... Hold Power + Windows buttons.

    My Lumia 2520 got same problem, it won't turn on. I charged for 12 hours but still no go. I hold the power button for more than 10 seconds, but still there is nothing happen when I press the power button again. Tapping on Windows button, I feel vibration, but no more vibration after tapped a few times.

    I took a close look on the device, there is no screws, how can I disassembly it?

    You should try and get into Recovery mode. On 2520 this is done by interrupting the boot cycle. Since your screen stays dark you will have to use the green light at top center for a guide.

    Tap the Power Button > as soon as the green light goes out (normally when you see the Nokia logo) > hold Power Button down for 10 seconds (this should shut down the device.

    Repeat the above including the interrupt of boot.

    On the third time tap the Power Button and do not interrupt the cycle. You should see ‘Preparing Automatic Repair‘ followed by ‘Diagnosing your PC‘. This should take you to the Recovery screen where you can follow the on screen prompts.

    And it doesn't matter how longgggg I hold the power button or hold it with the volume down button it won't power off because the button still vibrates when I touch it.

    I decided to let the battery completely die to see if it would work after plugging it into the charger and it still just stayed completely black, no green light to indicate that it was on, I pressed it home button and it vibrates... Ik it had to be the update.
    I have another 2520 that wouldn't respond to touch anymore after an update and it took me foreverrrrrr to get them to fix it with it still being under warranty... A lot of prayer later they started to cooperate and I sent it in and it was fixed... It's kinda frustrating smh
