Nexus 7 was working perfectly last night.
I left in the charger overnight and this morning it will not power on.

Has anyone recovered from this issue?
New battery or something?

Help, please!

Thanks

My wife's n7 was doing something similar. She used it all the way until it powered itself off and then left it like that until the next day. It would not turn on or take a charge. It would start to turn on then power off.

Try this.

Plug in the wall charger to the n7

Immediately hold power and volume down to try and get into recovery (or bootloader) - this step needs to happen very fast after plugging in power.

In recovery select power down (in bootloader use volume keys to navigate and power button to select).

Unplug the power cord and plug it right back in. You should now hopefully see the battery charging screen.

Hope this helps.

Thanks wilzard,

I've already tried that, and have tried over and over again!
No joy I'm afraid, so I'm not sure where to go from here?
I still have my Transformer TF101, so I'm not totally lost
but it just doesn't measure up to the Nexus 7.

Cheers

I'm really sorry man. I wish I could help you more.

I'm assuming you read this thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2090826 which details some of the main issues with battery and charging on nexus devices, and tried the things listed within?

I just read the OP and a couple pages, and I learned the nexus has a removable battery cover... neat.

If you haven't tried it yet, pull the back cover off, unplug the battery for a minute or so, put it back in a try it. You may need to hold the power button for up to 30 seconds to get it to respond.

Hope this works because I don't have any other ideas.

It worked!

Took the back off, disconnected the battery, reconnected it,
and pressed On. Up came Cyanogen and away we go again!

You are my hero!
Tell your boss you have my permission to take the rest of the week off!

Cheers
