X7 mini stuck on boot screen

#1
Hi all. As heading says I have a x7mini which when powered on just loads the boot screen and nothing happens from there. I bought it second hand and hoping I didn’t spend $50 on a paper weight. I have tried the reset button on the bottom but that doesn’t do anything for me. .can anyone help point me in the right direction

Was or bought new or used? Possible an incorrect Fw was loaded at the device. Are you able to enter recovery mode?

thanks guys... was trying via windows 10 without much luck or information but with Johns help in the link to reinstall firmware I have it working again. I end up using windows 7 laptop and with the download link supplied by John got it sorted in 30 minutes.... wish I had asked/found you guys earlier in the day.
