    Default Nexus 7 Fully Charged but Won't Power Up

    Hi,

    I just bought a dead Nexus 7 off eBay with the hope of fixing it. I plugged it in, left it about a minute then the screen on to the homepage (what was on previously before the owner dropped it i'm guessing) with a message saying not enough power, turning off.

    I charged the battery fully and now it won't turn on... I've tried to power up, bootloader and hard reset, nothing works... I don't have the original charger, only cable. Would this make a difference? I also removed the back and noticed there is a bit of green stuff in the ZIF connector for the button strip... Could this be the cause?

    I'm getting really irritated because I HAVE seen it power up, it was on (for all of 15 seconds) and now it won't power up again...

    Can someone please help?
    Thanks!

    Welcome.
    The green stuff is corrosion which is not conducive to conductivity.
    Suggest to clean the area and see if that helps.
