Completely Dead Nexus 5
I bought a damaged nexus 5 off of kijiji that had a shattered screen. I bought the phone to fix, but realized that the phone does not power on at all. There is no response from the phone at all. No charging LED, no vibration, or any other signs of life.
The phone came with the box and charger so i tried leaving it on charge for a few hours hoping that it was just the battery that went dead. Unfortunately this was not the case and the phone still doesnt turn on. I popped open the back cover looking for any visible damage on the phone, but it doesnt look like there is anything wrong. The liquid damage indicators have not been triggered (still completely white) and i do not see any corrosion on the inside which i guess rules out liquid damage.
I then thought that it could possibly be the charging circuit from the micro usb so i then tried with a qi wireless charger. The wireless charger doesnt even detect that a phone is placed on it when the nexus 5 is on it.
At this point i have no idea what is wrong with the phone and feel like i just bought an expensive paper weight
. I dont really want to shell out the $120 for a full screen assembly if the phone doesnt work at all.
Anyone have any ideas?
