Question [Q] Nexus One replacement won't boot up.. help? *UPDATE*

I just got my Nexus One replacement after my other one's lock button was damaged. I just got my new one today and after I charged it fully, I pressed the power button. It gets to the "X" and then doesn't boot past that.


My phone vibrates once when I boot it, and then after a few seconds it vibrates 4-5 times in a row.


Any ideas how to fix this? I don't want to unlock the bootloader or root it...

Update:
-Got it working

Update 2:
Died again....

This is my second Nexus One within 2 weeks that has had an issue:
1st one = broken lock/power button.
2nd one = won't boot

If it's 7 vibrates it's a hardware problems. Don't even bother, just send it back.

Man bro. Your having bad luck. Mine does it occasionally where I turn it off. And try to turn it on it stays black and vibrates. But I just let it sit without the battery. For like 30 seconds. Then try. Never ran into this problem with my desire or evo. It was just this phone. Which I find weird. But try letting it sit for a lil.

I let it sit for 2+ hours and then I turned it on. It worked for 2-5 minutes and then turned back off and got stuck at the "X"....

I have VERY bad luck...

Any ideas on a replacement? ($0-350 USD), I've been through 2 N1's, sadly...

I've honestly just let it sit there for 30 seconds. But what are you running? I think the only reason mine does it is because I soldered the charging port. And obviously that hasn't been done to yours. So it shouldn't do that.

When I got the replacement, it wouldn't turn on for a while, but when it did; it was on Android 2.2...

I got it working again a while later to update to 2.3.4.

Then it died again. I've decided to just return it and either get an Xperia Neo V or HTC Inspire.

Looks like the phone has a hardware problem. Maybe it was a refurb from amazon or something bad happened during the shipment?

Either way, return it to amazon for a replacement or get a completely different phone.
I'm only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand.

I do not answer support PM's, they will be ignored.

Well at least Amazon is nice about it. Since your trading it. The inspire is better then the Neo.
