I am using SUMO SM-705 and I am having problem with my pattern now what to do?

Please tell me what can I do now because my win pad not opening

Try charging your win pad first. If charging is okay, let it charge fully. If not, consider sending it to a service center since tablets do not have external batteries. If charging is finished, but Tablet would not reboot or is stuck on lock which you cannot bypass because you cannot reset the lock (no internet connection via WiFi or data connection or you forgot your email credentials), you will need to do a Hard Reset. You will have to do the following:

I left it with my friend and now it's not working.

If you do not remember your Gmail account information you can find out this information by visiting www.gmail.com in order for you to be able to use the forgot username/password option on the site. This will help you regain your information to use on your device so that you can gain entry.
