Last month I used my tablet, and the next day when I went to use it again it was off, and wouldn't turn back on. I tried every variation of letting it charge, unplugging, replugging, holding button down, etc. I eventually figured it was the battery, so I finally got around to buying a new one. However, it still isn't working. What the heck?! Someone please tell me they know of some fix, or can recommend me something.
Bad assumption on my part. I figured if you would replace the battery yourself, you would have some electronics experience. Don't stick probes into your nexus - you will short something. Unplug your hopefully charged battery and have a friend who is good at this measure the battery voltage while it is disconnected. Also have him check that you also successfully reconnected all those tiny connectors. The nexus 7 is really not good for a first electronics project -it is easy to do far more damage than good. And review the ifixit video again.
Well if the battery is disconnected, it is a two pin connector. One probe to each hole. I would make more suggestions, except I am afraid you will short them and start a fire. Be careful. And look for a techy friend.
