So my tab did the lollipop update over wifi but then when it was done I couldn't turn the WiFi on.
So i tried doing a repair through PC companion.
Now the tab starts up with the sony logo and gets a triangle with a wrench logo and has been on the same screen the whole time.
It has the blue bar which shows its doing something.

It sounds like the system is repairing itself since you have this progress bar. I suggest that you connect the Tablet to the charger and let work for an hour or two and hopefully it will power on normally afterwards.

Hi, I left it overnight and it was still on the screen this morning
+-12 hours later
The tablet died as well.
Is there any other way ?

How do you mean it died? Did it turn off?
What happens if you try to power it on again? If it powers on again with the same screen, you could perhaps force a shutdown by holding the ON/OFF + volume up(+) button for 5-10 seconds and start the Tablet once again to see if same behaviour appear.

Hi Hampus, the battery died and now i have it plugged in on charge.
But it does the same thing again with the wrench screen.

If i hold power button and volume up the tab goes off but then switches on imediately
How do i power if off completely

Disconnect the Tablet from the charger > Hold the ON/OFF + volume up(+) button for 10 seconds and the Tablet should be completely off.
When you connect the Tablet to the charger after this, it should only boot to the display where it shows that it's charging. In this case, I suggest that you perform a new software repair via PC Companion. Do you have the possibility to try this to see if it can help?

once i do that by holding the power and volume up the tab goes off ...but only when the tab is dead
if the tab is on charge it comes back on immediately and then procedes to the wrench screen
I have tried a repair but they need the tab to be at 80% charge and the tab isnt holding a charge due to it not shutting off
