Nexus 7 wont turn on
 
My Nexus 7 (2012 version) is not booting up. It had around a 50% charge last night, and when I went to use it today, it didn't start, so I plugged it into the the charger. The charging indicator appeared on the screen for about 1 second, then it went away. Since then, it has done nothing. No indicator, no start up, nothing. I went to Google and did the troubleshooting thing but nothing worked.


Did my tablet just die?

Solution
1. Disconnect the Micro USB cable (if connected) from your Nexus 7 then press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
2. If your device doesn't start up, charge your Nexus 7 battery:
a. Connect the bundled AC adapter to your Nexus 7 then charge your device for at least an hour.
b. Press the power button again. If your Nexus 7 still won't start up, please contact ASUS customer support.
Note: Ensure that you use only the bundled Micro USB cable and AC adapter to charge your device.

This is a design fault in the Nexus - the battery is not fixed snugly internally and is allowed to slide back and fourth and so the connections get loose.

1) open up the back of the nexus as described in this video:

2) you will probably see that the connectors from the battery (large silver rectangular thing) are not secured.

3) push them back in properly, then place a small piece of card to the left of the battery to stop it sliding.

4) put the back, back on.

5) leave it re-charge for a couple of hours.

6) bingo hey presto it works!

The connection on mine is loose. Have to get it positioned just right or it won't charge either

That's got to be it, because I can't even get into the bootloader.

Guess it's surgery time.

Thank you, 2000, that was it exactly.
