I am very familiar with this problem with the 2nd gens and it is almost always a sure sign that the tablet is not getting enough power to charge up and will not boot. Sometimes this can happen from the tablet not getting used for a while and getting completely drained. The other possibilities are A) the USB charging port is becoming worn out and won't charge or B) the battery is no longer holding a charge, much like a car battery in the winter. Get an original Nexus 7 wall charger and leave it charging through the wall outlet and not a computer, this has more power. If the light is blinking, it makes me think the USB is not the issue, so chances are after an hour or two it will have some life again.

You can try a hard reset. Hold down the power button and the volume buttons at the same time. The device should then power on and you can follow the on-screen prompts.

Hope that helps!

So, did you forget your lock screen password? You will probably need to do a factory reset.

Maybe it needs charging. You have given no info to go on as to what your "Polaroid" is or any other relevant information so that's my best guess.

Strange. Did you go to settings, connect to your home wireless network, and enter your password? Are you any further from the router than other devices you say do not have the issue? I've seen this, weaker signal, when people connected to the guest wireless network. Otherwise, I do not understan why it's happening unless it's an issue with the configuration of the wireless tablet adapter. You may have to do some advanced work on the adapter, but I don't have enough info to be able to tell you, for sure.

What type of printer do you have? Also, if you have upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat it comes with an HP Print Service. You also may be able to find an app from your printer's manufacturer in the Google Play Store. I've added a link that will guide through the setup.

Assuming you mean the 2013 version but I'll try both,
so for the 2013 version
  1. Turn your tablet off and place it on a flat surface with the screen facing up.
  2. Tilt the right side slightly up to find the SIM card tray near the bottom right and the small hole in the tray door.
  3. Insert a paperclip into the hole in the tray door, and push firmly but gently, the tray should pop out.
  4. snp_8a30b60eaed5a3a37f46a8c715167552992e_3271601_en_v0Remove the tray and place the micro SIM card inside it, the angle corner fits with the angled indent
  5. Push the tray it gently back into the tablet.
  6. snp_8a30b60eaed5a3a37f46a8c715167552992e_3271604_en_v0

Activate SIM card

  1. Open the Settings app snp_2918920_en_v1 and turn off Wi-Fi after completing the set-up instructions. Once Wi-Fi is off, you'll see a notification at the top of your screen.
  2. Swipe down the notification shade and touch the notification.
  3. Follow the activation instructions provided by your carrier.

For the Nexus 7 (2012) 3G use the same process noting that the tray slot and pinhole is on the left side of the device when its facing up.

*Note* : Only the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE & Nexus 7 (2012) 3G can accept a SIM card. Wi-Fi versions of the tablet can't.

Only thing to really do is wait for the battery to die all the way, then try the hard reset after it charges up a little bit.

my nexus 7 will not unlock on switch-on it is still under guarantee

ASUS Google... | Answered on Nov 03, 2013

It sounds like the device is completely broken after dropping it. You may find a local repair shop or a shop online to fix the device, but it may be cheaper to replace it with a new one.

Hope that helps!
