I haven't posted to the Nexus 7 forums, or even been on xda forums, for a long while now. Last I was here was October 10th, 2013.
From about that time, my Nexus 7 has sat on a shelf doing nothing. I'm sorry, but I admit it, I neglected my Nexus 7.
Now I went to turn it back on quite recently, and nothing happened. I thought it was a dead battery so I plugged it in, let it charge for a while, then tried to turn it on...
..and something quite odd happened. You could hear near the "nexus" logo at the top of the back of the device a small, sporadic buzzing. Along with clicking. Not only that, but the screen showed thin stripes of colors like red and white basically going everywhere.
Is my Nexus 7 dead?
My bio below is now wrong, too. I now own an iPhone 5S.
