Default Im Fed UP! Please HELP ME! safe mode problem and volume down problem


really fed up. Just got my new nexus 7 2013 the other day. Boot it up.......shows that its in safe mode.......followed tutorials on just restarting the phone, completely resetting it to stock, upgrade etc and nothing works.

Also my volume down button does not work (volume up does) but strangely i can boot into bootloader by holding the power button and down volume key so to me that says the volume key is working?????? but not decreasing the volume.

Id be very thankful for the input

I think if it were me I'd return it and get a replacement. That sounds like a lot of problems right out of the box and even if you get it working they might come back down the road.

One of the ways of booting into safe mode is by holding volume down while on the boot animation, so I'd bet there's a hardware issue with your volume down button. Definitely return it for a replacement.
