My nexus 7 will not turn on

I turned my nexus 7 off 2 hrs ago properly and then just tried to turn it back on and it won't do anything. I tried charging it thinking that might be the problem but it won't charge either

    The battery connector in the Nexus 7 (2012 model) is notoriously problematic. Sometimes dropping the device can cause issues that prevent the Nexus 7 from charging altogether. A hard reset as described by Phillip may not work. Fortunately, it is quite easy to fix.

    However this will void your warranty. Pop the back of the Nexus 7 case open by pushing a credit card or guitar pick or small screwdriver under the edge of the black plastic case. Start from the top and gently pry the case open, working your way around. The back of the case will come off quite easily. The battery occupies the bulk of the left-hand side of the unit, and a group of six wires come out of the top of the battery to a connector on the circuit board. Gently push the plug out of the socket connector, wait 15 seconds, and push it back in. Snap the case back on and plug in your charger. You should now see the battery charge image appear.

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!

SOURCE: My new Asus memo hd 7 will not turn on whatsoever.

Remove the rear cover...use your fingernails, or something thin and plastic (like a guitar pick) to get it started, then work your way around unsnapping it until it is off. Now unplug the battery, the battery connector pulls up towards you to unplug, it snaps in. Now, you have to put the rear cover back on..because as you will notice there is foil on it, and pins on the board that ground through that foil. After the cover is back on...press and hold the power button for 30 seconds or so to completely discharge the energy from the board. pop the back cover off, plug the battery back in, put the cover back on...and plug the tablet in. Now when you push the power button you should see a battery charging icon...let the tablet charge for an hour or so...then boot it up if you would like, but let it charge to 100% before unplugging. Good luck!!

Wont turn on


If you can get into the bootloader try doing a factory reset, if you are rooted press and hold the power and vol down button and that would boot into recovery. Worse case, you can google factory images for nexus 7 e and download a factory image from google and they provide the instructions on how to reimage your devices

My nexus 7 will not turn on and its only a week old


You may want to try and do a hard reset/reboot which will hopefully bring the Nexus 7 back to life.

  1. Press the power button and both volume keys for several seconds. The computer screen will eventually blink off. Continue to hold until you see the Android recovery logo and the large Start selection at the top of the screen.

  2. Move the volume keys up and down to see the menu selections. If you don't want to factory reset, you can try to Power down or to Restart bootloader from these selections. The power key will select the option.

Hope that helps!

Nexus 7 screen broken and back slightly popped


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!

My google nexus 7 wont turn on


Sorry to hear/read this.
First, try get a new charger and plug your Google nexus 7. Suspect a dead battery with no charge left on it.

Otherwise, confirm your charger isn't just lighting up whereas it isn't delivering any charge current to your device.

Next to try if your ac charger is confirmed good is to attempt replacing the battery; at the store, have them insert a compatible/similar battery and then try power on your device.

NOTE:
New batteries at the point of purchase have some charge on them; sufficient to power on your device.

Device not power on, DON'T PURCHASE NEW BATTERY. Obviously, you don't have a power/battery problem.

Device power on, then you either have a battery that has failed or that your device's charging port needs to be serviced or repaired.

Please post update/feedback asap. Thanks

Nexus 7 black screen


I had this and fixed it! I saw the solution on some google group and tried it.

The problem is the battery is disconnected. Pop off the back cover with your fingernails (and rage since you are so upset about your tablet not working)

There is a big silver thing (battery) with 5 or so wires leading into a black plastic plug thing. Push the plug into its port, replace cover, good to go.
