    You don't need to reinstall the firmware. Just press and hold the power button for sometime and your device will restart.

    Download Kies software for Windows and then install it.

    After that,go to Tools –> Emergency Firmware Recovery to try to see whether Kies offers you way to recover your tablet.

    Moreover,if Kies detect you tablet and offers you to update(Android 4.1.2) it,then you can be safe to be sure that your tablet would be back with updated features.

    Also,try pressing power+volume down buttons together to see whether the tablet goes into recovery mode.

    It is in "Download Mode", in which it is waiting for an update to install. You can restart your device without any problems. If you did hard reset your device, all information and data may be lost. If you cannot start your device normally, then let us know so we can try to get it working again.You may just have to reinstall Android to your device.
