    Default Re: Nexus 10 won't turn on.

    Ya lol ur right the point of getting a nexus device is to be the first to update but that means that you get to experience all the bugs before anyone else

    Sent from my Nexus 7 2013 or Moto G

    This is happening to mine too. The thing is that I live in Brazil, and I cannot return Nexus 10 so easily (warranty is off too) . I indeed got into boot loop but now it shows only the battery sign with bolt and keeps buzzing. Crazy. I lost all my pics already, but I would really like my tablet come to life again. Help me

    I disagree. I have the problem as well. Fully charged device won't turn no matter what. $500 for a paper weight is a bit expensive.

    I was using the device when it was fully charged. I left it alone for a minute of two. When I came back to it, it was dead. Pressing power does not help. I tried it for 15 minutes or so and then called it ...paper weight.

    Second Samsung tablet and last.

    I am having the same issue where it is not turning on at all. And when I plug the charger, it only shows the battery icon full but cannot turn on. Good thing is I bought extended warranty to cover everything from Staples. Has anyone ever had to deal with staples warranty? Maybe I can get a new one more compatible for school.

    Hi i was just like you torpedopress but i went to google itself and it had a troubleshoot thing i linked below, essentially it said i should use the usb to ac adaptor which came with the tablet. The moment i plugged it into that from my other old HTC adaptor my tablet vibrated and lit up and now turns on, so please to anyone who reads this page make sure you use the adaptor that came with it and the usb to microusb cable that came with the tablet before you dismiss the nexus

    Thanks, FragCJ!
    This worked for me with one addition: leave the tablet plugged in for a few minutes! Immediately after plugging in I still got the same white battery icon with lightning bolt, which I assumed meant it was near fully charged. Not so, it was actually fully drained (when I finally got it turned on the battery showed "Charging, 0%")! When I powered it off last night it was at 75% charge. As soon as I saw the "Powering Off..." message I closed the lid. This morning the tablet was drained. Not sure how that happened, but could be that I didn't let it power down properly. So, if your tablet doesn't turn on with any of the above methods it might simply have a dead battery; plug it in to charge for a few minutes. After 2-5min you will see the screen brighten, and an animated charging icon will appear. You will be able to turn on the tablet at that point if you wish.

    Great tip about holding down the power button for 30 seconds. My Nexus was not powering up, and when connected to the charger was not showing any signs of charging. Holding button worked a treat.

    I found my issues to be caused by a high output charger of 2100mA or higher. When I connected my Nexus 10 to a 700mA charger I finally got a pulse. I even tried a 750mA charger and that caused issues. Bazar all together.

    Guys here's my problem... my tab won't power on and is optimizing files... it never finishes and flickers and turns off..

    Update: I just left it charging for 2 hours even though I thought it was full charged... and it finaly powered on. With 2% battery.... something drained it. Not sure how. But charge ur tab for awhile it should fix.

    I am having the SAME problem! It comes so close to optimizing and reboots over and over, to the point where it barely gets past the google screen....I searched for hours on a solution, and when I was about to give up, I remember seeing some guy say he put it in the freezer. As bizarre as that sounds I was willing to try anything. Low and behold, the basted turned on. Not for long, it ended up crashing on me again, to the point of the original problem. whýyyyyyyy

    Seem to have encountered the same issue today...

    Nexus 10 would not turn on, so connected it to charger (original google charger plus cable, although I am not sure if it was the one which came with the Nexus 10 or the Nexus 1). Left it to charge for a couple of hours, but still refused to turn on when I came back to it.

    If I pressed and held the power on button, the battery symbol with thunder bolt would show briefly, then disappear. No vibrate or other visual indicator. With no charger or computer connected, the screen remained blank.

    I tried connecting to a computer, but behaviour was no different. Also, the computer showed no sign of recognising anything having been plugged in. Followed the various suggestions here, including the hold down 30s, the hold down with volume up+down, etc. No change.

    Tried a different USB cable, no change.

    Tried a higher capacity charger. No change. Then swapped to another slightly lower capacity charger after about 10 minutes. This time it sprang to life. Not sure if the second change of charger made a difference, or if I just hadn't waited long enough. But it finally powered up and showed 0% charge.

    First time I have seen it be this reluctant to power up. The battery may have been flattened by my accidentally leaving the WiFi enabled, but I am sure I have done that before. It wasn't more than a week or two since I last turned it on.

    Once it charges, I will go back to check if the original charger/cable seem to be working now.

    Thanks for all of the earlier suggestions. I might not otherwise have persevered.
