    Recently got a Surface RT 64 Gig used.

    Already tested it plugged for a long time, no result. The light on the charger is lit...

    Hard reset, no success....

    Could it be that the battery need to be changed, or something else ???

    Thank everyone.

    try a factory restore, if that doesn't work then it sounds like the seller sold you a defective Surface RT... battery might be shot...
