[Q] Help, my Nexus 4 has stopped working!

Help Wanted!

My Nexus 4 has stopped working

I was out for a run, using my phone to play music via Bluetooth headphones. While out running my headphones disconnected and when I looked at my phone the Bluetooth had turned itself off. I couldn't turn it back on so I decided to reboot. My phone would not turn back on. Initially, I thought it might be the cold (0 C) draining the battery but I have been at home now for over an hour and my phone has been on charge the whole time but still no joy. The phone won't turn on.

Does anyone know of a fix or a way I can 'force' it to turn on? I might add that I am not a developer, so a simple, step by step solution would be much appreciated.

Many thanks for your help and advice.

Press and hold the power button until it starts.

Your button is toast, or worse.

Looks like a trip to the service center is in your future unfortunately.

Have you tried plugging it into an actual computer and seeing if it recognizes it? This would tell us whether the battery or the screen is buggered at least (another way to test this would be to ring the phone of course)

I would also try a fastboot and see if that does anything: Vol Up + Vol Down + Power.

Can we have more information about your phone ? Rooted, access or not to fastboot, etc.

Leave it plugged in for several hours, sometimes the N4 battery needs to get enough juice before it starts up again.
